Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz are set to have their big screen reunion this year.
Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz are finally reuniting in a movie four years after their last one.
"Very excited po ako kasi galing din sa bakasyon. Maganda to start the year na magtrabaho ulit," said Sarah in an interview during their movie Dear Future Husband's story conference together with John Lloyd and their new directer Ted Boborol.
According to Sarah, the project came unexpectedly as she already wanted to veer away from rom-coms.
"Nagkataon nung umakyat si Ma'am Charo [Santos-Concio] nung Christmas special, sabi niya ‘O, gagawa pa ba kayo ng movie ni Lloydie?’ Nagulat ako. Siyempre si Ma’am Charo, nakakahiya mag-decline," she shared about what made her say “yes” to the project.
The box office actor also expressed his excitement about their reunion project.
"Matagal-tagal na yung huling pagsasama namin. Kapag tumagal pa, baka hindi na mangyari," he said. "Dapat mangyari na siya. Life is short."
In order to differentiate their film from their past three projects, Sarah said she would make a conscious effort to act according to her age.
"Galing sa title mismo ng pelikula na Dear Future Husband, siyempre dadating sa buhay natin na gusto din natin magkaroon ng sariling pamilya," she said.
To which John Lloyd replied with "Ganon?"
Sarah then asked her leading man, "Ikaw kaya Lloydie kelan? Ikaw ba Lloydie hindi pa? Ano ba ang mindset mo ngayon?"
“I’m forever young," said John Lloyd.
The actor was honest enough to admit that he doesn't see himself settling down any time soon even if he'll "always be a lover."
"Marami pa tayong gustong ma-achieve sa buhay natin since nabalitaan ko na life is short nga daw," he explained.
While he initially reiterated that there's more to life than just settling down, John Lloyd revealed the real reason why he hasn't walked the aisle yet.
"Meron pa tayong ibang aspiration sa buhay in both personal and work-related. [Pero] siguro kahit naman anong sabihin ko, siguro ang totoo naman diyan, hindi ko pa nakikita," he ended.
Without revealing much about their story Direk Ted shared that they are slated to start filming by end of January or early February. He also shared that they are looking into hitting the theaters by second quarter of the year.
