Gerald Anderson and Arci Munoz all set to star in “Can We Still Be Friends”


022817-ArciGerald_PUSH.jpgAs the day goes near to his 28th birthday on March 7, Gerald Anderson revealed he is excited to have a simple celebration in the U.S while gearing up for his first major international marathon on March 19.

“Next next week na rin yan, lilipad ako sa U.S para lumaban ako sa L.A marathon. Para sa birthday ko na rin yun. This Sunday meron kaming patakbo para sa mga crew at sa mga ibang fans for my birthday also. Pero yung birthday ko day off lang yun. Baka dinner lang with family, ganun. Simple lang,” he admits during the story conference for his new film “Can We Still Be Friends” at the Star Cinema office last February 28.

Scheduled for release at the third quarter of the year, the new Star Cinema project reunites Gerald with Arci Munoz.

Ito ay follow-up namin ni Arci sa last movie namin which is ‘Always Be My Maybe.’ Almost exactly one year na last year lumabas yung movie namin. This time ang title ng movie naminCan We Still Be Friends.’ So parang sa title pa lang ang dami ng tanong eh. Parang nakaka-excite kasi. Parang can we still be friends, ano bang ibig sabihin nun di ba? It’s a simple movie about a relationship,” he shared.

Dubbed as “#TeamRelate,” Gerald explained why he and Arci have been called that kind of love team.

Ganun talaga yung brand namin ni Arci eh. Makaka-relate talaga yung mga tao lalo na sa movie na ito. Kinukuwento pa lang nila kanina parang merong isa sa amin nakaka-relate na sobra (laughs). Pareho kami. Sobrang nakaka-relate din ako. Sobrang excited na kami gawin para mapanuod ng mga tao. Love story ito ng lahat. Ang daming makaka-relate eh. Sobra eh. Kung paano nila kinukuwento sa akin, ako aaminin ko, may mga times na naiisip ko, ‘Oo ako din yun.’ Bilang isang lalake sobrang nakaka-relate din ako dun sa mga kinukuwento nila direk at yung mga writers,” he said.

In “Can We Still Be Friends,” the story revolves around a former couple who try to see if they can still be friends after their failed eight-year relationship. Gerald said he loves how genuine the storyline felt.

“Gusto namin ni Arci na iparating sa mga tao yung totoong relationship, yung mga nangyayari talaga sa totoong buhay. Siyempre gagawin nating medyo nakakatawa pero nakakakilig pero at the end of the day sobrang nakaka-relate yung tao kasi totoo siya,” he remarked. When asked if he believes exes can remain friends, the Star Magic heartthrob gave an honest answer.

“Siyempre hindi agad agad yan. Ang dami niyong pinagdaanan eh tapos kunyari pag nag-be-break kayo hindi naman puwedeng agad agad. It takes time. Depende sa break up. Depende sa sitwasyon. And oras, time heals everything. Don’t force it. But siyempre um-effort ka kung kaya,” he added.
