After the success in 2015 of their first movie together That Thing Called Tadhana, JM De Guzman said he is looking forward to working again with Angelica Panganiban in another project written by the same writer Antonette Jadaone. JM said he and Angelica are already talking about their reunion movie. “Actually kakausap ko lang sa kanya. Tinext ko siya kasi kakatapos lang niya sa Exes Baggage and sobra yatang nakakapagod yung process ng pinagsabay niya yung soap. Kaya nagpapahinga pa ata siya. And may inaayos pa rin sa story. Hindi ko alam kung ang plano ni direk Tonette kung part two talaga pero parang may plano siyang gawin kami na bago,” he shared during the Kung Paano Siya Nawala Media Launch held last October 31 in Quezon City.
Rumors linking the two co-stars have not died out, especially this year when they were both a fixture at each other’s birthdays, which only fueled further speculations as to the real status of their friendship. “Anong totoo sa friendship namin? Hindi kami nagka-relasyon ni Angelica. Naging close kami. Very close friends. Hindi ko alam eh (laughs). Special friend. Parang pumorma (ako) ng konti. Gumanun ng konti. It’s something din kasi na hindi ko pa muna, and alam ko siya rin, and marami sa amin na hindi pina-prioritize muna siguro (ang love life) kasi nagtitipid ako ng energy and pina-prioritize ko yung dapat kong pagtuunan ng pansin,” he said.
JM did not hesitate to admit that he is at a point in his life where he is not yet ready to be in a relationship. “Still a scary thing for me, love. Alam ko kung ano ang puwede niyang gawin sa akin. Positive or negative. It’s something na hindi ko dapat minamadali,” he added.
