The reunion film of John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo are pushing through, ABS-CBN Films managing director Olivia Lamasan said during a virtual conference on Wednesday, January 27.
"Tuloy pa rin tayo diyan. Right now, tuloy pa rin 'yung creative development under Carmi Raymundo," she said.
"This time, it's a collaboration with John Lloyd himself and Bea. So that is what's happening. Tuloy 'yung project na iyan. That's one of the big projects we have," she added.
Olivia proudly shared that both John Lloyd and Bea have been actively involved in the project.
"The many experiences plus talagang 'yung innate intelligence naman ni Lloydie 'di ba, parang umusbong 'yung kanyang creativity. With everything that he has been doing and he has truly matured as person and as a creative person," she said.
"So it's exciting that he, together with Bea who has gone through the same journey, collaborate in the project they are going to do," she continued. "It's something that excited us, it's something that excites the writer Carmi Raymundo, likewise the director Cathy Garcia-Molina."
"So hinihintay ko na lang mabasa dahil ako ay excited na excited sa project na iyan. Tandaan ninyo, ang John Lloyd-Bea ay nagsimula sa akin sa 'Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay,'" she added, referring to the tandem's launching series in 2002.
According to Olivia, pre-production of the movie will begin in the first quarter of 2021.
After "Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay," longtime onscreen pair John Lloyd and Bea Alonzo co-starred in more teleseryes and films, including the hit series "It Might Be You," "Ikaw Ang Lahat Sa Akin," "Maging Sino Ka Man," and "I Love Bea La Fea," and blockbuster movies "One More Chance," "A Second Chance," and "The Mistress."
