After the success of the digitally restored Sana Maulit Muli movie of Aga Muhlach and Lea Salonga that was held at the Cine Adarna of University of the Philippines Diliman last month, they are set to have a reunion movie by 2016. This was announced by the Star Cinema managing director Malou Santos during the ABS-CBN’s Chat with the Chairman last Tuesday, August 4.
It is impossible for Lea to make a movie this year due to her busy schedule. Aside from the second season of The Voice Kids Philippines, Lea is also preparing for her role in an international Broadway show Allegiance, which will preview on October 6 at the Longacre Theater in New York.
She also told in an interview with dzMM that she does not do movies often that’s why she wants to work with people that she’s already comfortable with.
“Maraming oras na ang nakalipas since we did a movie and then to receive that kind of reception doon sa screening, talagang hindi ako makapaniwala na ganun ang naging pagtanggap ng very, very young audience,” she said.
“Minsan lang kasi ako gumawa ng pelikula. As in once every 17 years. I don’t do movies very often so I want to be with people that I’m already comfortable with. There are certain risks that I’d like take when I perform live. But when I do a film, I’d like to stay with a team na nakasanayan ko na,” she added.
