Enchong Dee, Xian Lim, Enrique Gil, and Kean Cipriano gear up for Star Cinema's 'The Reunion'


011112-reunion2_main.jpgTentatively titled as The Reunion, Star Cinema’s latest movie offering gathers four of the hottest young actors to date: Enchong Dee, Xian Lim, Enrique Gil, and Kean Cipriano. The movie follows a barkada who are bound together by their passion for music and their respective pursuit of happiness.

Ipapakita yung journey na close friends sila nung high school, tapos several years later nagkita-kita ulit sila. Meron silang hinahanap na kulang. Meron kasi silang ginawang kasalanan nung high school na feeling nila kaya hindi sila nakapag-move on sa buhay nila dahil hindi pa sila nakakapag-make amends sa ginawa nila before. Ito yung journey ng apat para hanapin yung sarili nila saka hanapin yung dating sinaktan nila at minahal nila,” said director Frasco Mortiz during their story conference at the Star Cinema office last January 10.

Although it’s their first time to work together, the four actors seemed to have established instant rapport as a group. Enchong further elaborated on the subject, “Exciting kasi first time namin makakasama si Kean. Sino ba naman ang hindi gustong makasama ang isang napakagaling na musician? Tapos for 2011, most talked about actor si Xian at si Enrique. So maganda yung mix ng group. We’re working on our camaraderie, pero yung initial meeting namin ngayon, ganito na kami [kakulit], paano pa kaya kapag nag-bonding na kami.”

In the same vein, Kean is happy to be working with a new set of co-actors in The Reunion.Para makabawi kami sa pambobola, siyempre gusto din namin makatrabaho si Enchong. Sigurado ako sa nararamdaman ko ngayon magiging masaya itong pelikula na ito. Marami kaming gagawing kalokohan. Mukhang masaya siya so yun ine-expect ko na mangyari” Coming from two box office hits last year (Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank and Praybeyt Benjamin), Push.com.ph asked Kean if he feels pressured to offer something different this time around. “I’ll follow directions pa rin. Kung anong sasabihin sa akin ni direk, kung anong kailangan ng storya yun ang gagawin ko, at kung meron akong pwdeng ilagay na toppings, pero dun ako magba-base sa kanila.”

As for their leading ladies, direk Frasco said that their team has already come up with a shortlist of young actresses that the viewers would love to see paired with Xian, Enrique, Enchong, and Kean. “Yung mga names na ‘yan (Kim Chiu and Erich Gonzales) talagang kasama sa listahan na hininigi namin. Yun lang talagang schedule ang makakasagot niyan. At siyempre may plano ding ibang project sa bawat isa sa kanila so wine-weigh ng Star Magic at Star Cinema yung tamang pairing na pabor sa bawat isa. Para in a way, gusto namin maiba ng konti. Idya-jumble namin ng konti para maiba naman yung makita ng viewers sa pelikula at hindi yung laging napapanood nila sa TV.”

Asked about their expectations for this project, Xian and Enrique said that they just want to have fun and be able to do a movie that the people would watch out for. “Parang Bagets of our generation ito. So I expect a lot of comedy. Kwela lang,” said Enrique. To which Xian added, “Sana madami kaming mapasaya. Yung ibang makakasama naming actors sobrang galing. Si Enchong pa lang, pati director namin. Sana abangan ng mga tao ang pelikulang ito.”
