Director Theodore Boborol says this project is dedicated to all the loyal AshLloyd fans.
After being announced as the director for upcoming Star Cinema film Dear Future Husband which reunites the blockbuster tandem of John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo, Theodore Boborol admitted his first reaction was a defensive one. "Sa totoo lang, hindi ako naniwala. Natakot ako. When it was presented to me I actually declined because I was scared. Feeling ko hindi pa ako handa ng mga ganun kalaking project but kinausap naman ako ng management ng Star Cinema and sabi nga nila, rather than be scared be challenged na lang. So parang mas more of oo nga naman. I should be grateful and I should feel blessed that I was given this opportunity to direct big stars like Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz. So ngayon it’s an overwhelming feeling,” he told Push.com.ph.
The talented director, who also directed the recent Metro Manila Film Fest hit Vince and Kath and James also clarified that his latest project will not be a sequel of John Lloyd and Sarah’s previous film franchise. "Yun yung pinaka-challenge for us kasi hindi siya sequel and they came from a franchise movie. A rom-com na nagkaroon part two at part three so yun yung challenge. Kasi kung mag-part four kami siguro kikita kami kaagad. Eto, we will be working on a new material so gusto namin magbigay ng something new sa audience para may makita naman silang bago and at the same time we don’t want to lose the brand of AshLloyd. Kung paano nila minahal yung dalawa, sana lumabas din sa pelikulang ito. Yun yung aim namin. Siyempre I’m excited kasi the concept is sobrang kilig. And at the same time it was challenging also because they’ll be portraying roles that are more or less kapareho ng age nila,” he admitted.
Dear Future Husband is also Direk Ted’s first time to work with Sarah Geronimo. "Si Sarah yung first time ko maka-work. Si Sarah first time ko siya makaka-work so nung storycon first time din namin mag-meet. Okay naman. I’m still trying to get to know her and nakikita ko naman bukas siya,” he added.
The talented director who is known for being at the helm of popular Kapamilya series like Be Careful With My Heart, Angelito: Batang Ama, and Be My Lady said this movie is their tribute for the fans. "In this movie, we just want to thank all the AshLloyd fans. They’ve been clamoring for a return of the team up after four years of not making movies together. Siguro ang gusto lang namin iparating sa kanila is ma-in love sila ulit, kiligin sila ulit kina Sarah at John Lloyd dito sa movie na ito. We are pegged to be released at the second quarter of this year and then siguro we start shooting in February,” he shared.
