Dingdong Dantes is back doing films under Star Cinema after three years. He is also set to reunite with Angelica Panganiban in the film.
The film The Unmarried Wife is set to be helmed by Maryo delos Reyes and the script will be written by Keiko Aquino.
“Very excited to come back and to work again with Star Cinema,” Dingdong said during the story conference of their movie.
Dingdong’s last film with Star Cinema was She’s The One in 2013 opposite Bea Alonzo and Enrique Gil. The last time he was able to work with Angelica was for the film One More Try with Zanjoe Marudo in 2012.
According to Keiko, the film is expected to excite the fans especially with the part that Angelica is called an “unmarried wife.”
“So it’s about a wife who is torn between her choices—between two men. Her husband and her lover. But it’s not your typical love triangle who is the husband and who is the lover. And kung bakit ‘unmarried wife’ rin siya and ‘yun ang kailangan rin natin malaman,” she said.
Paulo, for his part, excitedly shared that the upcoming film would be his first full-length film with Star Cinema after only playing the role of a ghost in the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival entry Pagpag: Siyam na Buhay.
Since it is set to be a mature film, Direk Maryo revealed that love scenes would be inevitable for the film.
“It is a new look into the characters played by the three protagonists and kung papano sila nag-i-interact. Of course there will be love scenes it’s part of the psyche of a woman and it’s part of the psyche of every human being, kasama ang eros doon so nag-e-express sila ng love through doon through physical enjoyment,” Direk Maryo said.
Direk Maryo, however, refused to reveal who would be playing the role of a lover and a husband in the upcoming film.
The cameras are set to start rolling for The Unmarried Wife starting June 4.
