Jodi Sta. Maria, Richard Yap, and Ian Veneracion’s upcoming movie has now a title. Star Cinema recently announced that the film would be called The Achy Breaky Hearts. In an interview during the promo shoot of the movie, director Antoinette Jadaone explained why they chose the title.
“Kasi it’s a story of Chinggay (played by Jodi Sta. Maria) who is desperate to find love. Nasaktan siya dati sa love at mame-meet niya ‘yung dalawang lalaki na may issue din tungkol sa pag-ibig so may tatlong achy breaky hearts na magme-meet sa movie,” direk Tonette said.
Is she team Ian or team Richard? “Kung titingnan mo ang story madali lang malaman kung ano ‘yung dapat maging ending nong story ni Chinggay kasi actually story to ni Chinggay who found two men. In the end don ako kung saan si Chinggay tamang maging masaya. Hindi ako team Richard o team Ian pero don ako sa team Chinggay kasi siya ‘yung central character ko,” she said.
Now that the fandoms are beginning to place their bets on whether Jodi’s character will end up with Ian’s or Richard’s character in the movie, direk Tonette is elated about the news.
“Very excited kasi ngayon pa lang inaabangan nila ‘yung pagsasama nilang tatlo para sa movie so we’re using that excitement para maging happy sa ginagawa naming story.”
“It’s nice that the fans have bonded together to form teams pero I hope it doesn’t go beyond, ‘yung ano lang, kulitan lang.” Richard added.
Jodi was all praises for her co-actors in the movie and for the story line. “Masaya siya especially pagkasama ko silang tatlo, si direk, si Richard, tsaka si Ian medyo pagmagkakasama na pala kaming apat riot na ‘yun, magaan ang set. Good vibes lang,” she said.
When asked if how she feels to be working with two of the most bankable leading men in the industry, Jodi responded, “Siyempre I’m very thankful di ba na nabigyan tayo ng pagkakataon na gumawa ng film and na blessed ako na kasama ko ang dalawng nag-gwagwapohang lalaki at tsaka ano din trabaho lang, work lang talaga.”
Ian also commended the story line of the movie. “It’s not my first time to work with direk Tonette and of course with Jodi. First time namin ni Richard mag-work together. We have solid scripts and ang ganda ganda ng istorya.”
