Piolo Pascual and Sarah Geronimo are finally teaming up for a movie project. This year, the two stars will headline the romantic movie The Break-Up Playlist.
Sarah admitted that she has been waiting for this film for two years and that she is truly thrilled that it will finally materialize on the big screen.
“After two years, matagal na, napa-exciting. Very excited kasi alam namin na we would be able to show something sa mga tao so iba and hopefully ma-appreciate nila,” the Pop Star Princess said during the story conference of the film. The main theme of the movie will be music and Piolo is ecstatic to offer a fresh concept to the moviegoers. “Aside from the characters we could offer something which is music. That’s why it’s called Break-up Playlist. The movie will revolve around the songs in our lives, in our relationships, so maganda. Actually mas matagal sila sa pagpili ng pagkanta so it will play a big part in the movie.”
Piolo will be playing the role of a rock star while Sarah will be playing the role of an aspiring singer. Director Dan Villegas stressed that the movie is not a musical though. “It’s romance, hindi siya musical, parang story siya tungkol sa dalawang musicians. More on romance-drama,” direk Dan said.
Sarah shared that it is easier now to do a romantic movie since she is in love in real life. “Oo siyempre, may inspirasyon,” Sarah commented. Meanwhile, Piolo who is not romantically involved with anyone as of the moment does not see it as a hindrance in giving justice to his character. ”Kailangan ba [in love]? In anything that we do, it’s a matter of channeling it right. Ang sa akin naman inspirasyon ko, trabaho ko, whatever character I play, for me, if I have to fall in love, with the characters talagang the whole story it's all part of it, ‘yon yung maganda sa trabaho natin.”
Sarah relayed that it took time before the movie materialized since it underwent numerous revisions in order for the project to fit them as actors. “Noong in-offer sa akin ‘to sobrang excited po ako pero ayaw ko po siya na parang lumipas lang. Gusto ko po siya maging maganda ‘yung material po namin kasi siyempre si Papa P ‘yan so kailangan maganda talaga,” she stated.
Will there be a kissing scene in the film? “Hindi. In my opinion hindi naman talaga super required ‘pag hinihingi lang talaga ng eksena eh di ‘yun,” direk Dan replied.
