Maine Mendoza starts shooting new movie with Carlo Aquino


With shooting for her first Black Sheep film Isa Pa With Feelings starting this month, Maine Mendoza said she is excited to be working opposite Carlo Aquino for the first time. “Pareho din excited din ako na makatrabaho siya. Magkasama na kami sa mga workshops ngayon and mas nakikilala na din namin yung isa’t isa. Nakakatuwa kasi mukhang magkakasundo kami kasi feeling ko hindi kami magkakaroon ng hard time making this film. Actually bukas mag-sa-start na kami and wala pa kaming target release date pero excited na talaga ako kasi I will get to work with new people and di ba exciting yun na parang lumalawak yung mundo mo sa showbiz?” she shared during her Betadine Fresh Bliss contract signing held last August 1 in Quezon City. 

Even with the successful box office opening of Alden Richards’s crossover film Hello, Love, Goodbye, the Fresh Bliss celebrity endorser said she is not feeling pressured at how her own project will perform. “Honestly wala. Kasi hindi naman ako producer so parang ang concern ko lang talaga is sana makagawa kami ng magandang pelikula, parang yung quality pa rin talaga yung nag-ma-matter sa akin. Parang hindi ko naman ini-expect na magiging blockbuster yung film namin or anything but gusto ko lang talaga na maka-deliver kami ni Carlo and magustuhan ng tao yung magagawa namin,” she explained.

As an actress, Maine said she will try her best to focus on the quality of her latest project.  “Well honestly sa gagawin naming pelikula, ako kasi as an actress and not as a producer, so ang main focus ko ngayon is makagawa ng magandang pelikula. Iba talaga ako mag-isip. Never naging thing sa akin yung kikitain ng pelikula or yung kung saan pa pupunta yung pelikula. Pero ang gusto ko lang, ang gusto maging sure yung makagawa kami lahat ng pelikula na magiging proud kami at maganda yung storya, yung execution, lahat,” she said.

With a full schedule this year, Maine admitted that this will push the launch of her new album to a later time but she does look forward to making more music when she can. “Medyo nagiging busy na ngayon lalo na sa movie with Carlo Aquino and an upcoming MMFF movie din with Bossing tapos yung Eat Bulaga everyday so naghahanap lang kami ng time kung kailan makapag-record ng ibang music para ma-release na din yung album ko. Pero sa ngayon medyo focused kami sa dalawang movies kasi mag-sa-start na siya this month parehong movies,” she added.
