Push does dream casting for cult soaps Esperanza, Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay, and Saan Ka Man Naroroon
Since phenomenally successful teleseryes like Mara Clara
and Mula sa Puso
have been remade with younger stars, the Push Team takes a look at other series which could be rebooted with the next generation of stars. (This list is purely hypothetical and should not be taken as fact.)
The 1996 soap that further catapulted then budding superstar Judy Ann Santos and her leading men Wowie de Guzman and Piolo Pascual to stardom deserves a remake.
After Princess & I, Got To Believe, and most recently She’s Dating The Gangster, it’s very much obvious that Kathryn Bernardo is slowly becoming ready for more mature and heavier roles. While Kathniel’s chemistry is definitely one for the books, this may be the series for Kathryn should she go solo.
Morose Joseph Marco can seemingly take on the role of Anton Montejo (Wowie), Esperanza’s childhood sweetheart, while hunky Dominique Roque (Piolo) can take on the role of two-faced “spy” Brian who eventually falls in love with the lead star.
Saan Ka Man Naroroon had Claudine Barretto play three contrasting roles of triplets separated at birth namely, Rosenda, Rosario, and Rosemarie.
This TV series really made Claudine a household name, especially since it was her comeback soap after the very successful Mula sa Puso and who better take on the role once again other than Julia Montes. Julia has slowly blossomed from the teen we all saw in Growing Up into a fine actress who despite at her tender age of 19 can shine next to teleserye giants like Coco Martin and Kim Chiu in her recent soap Ikaw Lamang.
Julia’s three leading men could be Gerald Anderson to take on the role of the mature Diether Ocampo, Matteo Guicidelli for the role of the timid Leandro Muñoz, and Aljur Abrenica for the role of the supportive Carlos Agassi.
Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay was soap that started it all for the unparalleled love team of John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo back in 2003. The emerging tandem of Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano could take on the roles for this theoretical remake.
Enrique who is being groomed to become a universal leading man has starred opposite actresses like Julia Montes, Julia Barretto, Kathryn, Liza, and Bea herself. His onscreen chemistry with Liza in She’s The One and in the upcoming The Bet is the reason why this pairing will work.
