The much-awaited Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta comeback movie is not happening anytime soon.
This news was confirmed by Dawn herself during an interview on the sidelines of the recently-concluded Kwento ng Pasko: Pag-asa at Pagbangon solidarity concert held at the Araneta Coliseum.
According to Dawn, CharDawn fans need to be a little more patient as she waits for a different script for their iconic love team’s comeback flick. “It’s a very nice project, actually. I just felt that maybe perhaps, since it’s our comeback movie as a love team, I felt that perhaps, we’ll wait for another kind of material na lang. that’s the only reason,” she said.
Although she saw it as a “very great story” Dawn maintained her stand on waiting for a new material. “It would have been a wonderful project. It’s a wonderful cast, a great director. Pero parang siguro maghihintay na lang ako. Kung magiging comeback movie namin as a love team ni Richard, ibang material na lang,” stressed the former Bukas Na lang Kita Mamahalin star.
In an interview last November, Richard denied speculations that Dawn turned down their supposed comeback movie. He clarified that his project with Gretchen Barretto, John Lloyd Cruz, and Jessy Mendiola is different from what was supposed to be the CharDawn comeback film. “Mayroon kaming teleserye na gagawin ni Dawn tapos 'yung movie namin ni Dawn, to follow. Iba itong project namin ni Gretchen. Teleserye muna, mag-start na kami ni Dawn ng taping namin in the next few weeks,” he said.
While their film is on hold for the time being, fans of their tandem can look forward to their upcoming family drama which is slated to air next year. “May bago tayong teleserye, ang title ay ‘You’re My Home.’ That’s going to be shown in the early part of the year.”
