Celebrity couple Julia Barretto and Gerald Anderson reunited with Jason Paul Laxamana, director of their 2019 movie Between Maybes.
Jason shared a photo with the couple on his Instagram page on Thursday, November 25. He captioned the post with the hashtag #BetweenMaybes, before tagging the accounts of both Julia and Gerald.
Fans were thrilled over the reunion, with many asking the director for a sequel to Between Maybes.
“YESSSIR!! PETITION FOR REUNION DIREK!!” a fan said.
Released in May 2019, Between Maybes follows the story of a washed-up actress Hazel (Julia), who books a random flight and eventually ends up in the secluded prefecture of Saga, Japan. There, she meets a young man named Louie (Gerald), who provides an escape from reality and makes her consider a different way of life.
Previously, Julia cited Between Maybes as one of her favorite projects and one that she will never forget because of the many similarities between herself and her character Hazel.
“It’s funny. Hazel is also an actress and she’s also from the same industry that Julia is in. There was a point in her life, in her career, where she was so misunderstood that she became such an angry person. She wasn’t the person that she was anymore, or the person that she really wanted to be,” she said.
The actress also said she loved how “natural” the entire feel of the movie was and that “no hysterics, nothing big” was required, only true emotions.
“I like that we were speaking through our eyes more than our mouths,” she added, referring to her and Gerald’s characters in the movie.
Between Maybes was the first project of Julia and Gerald together. It became controversial after Julia was accused as being the third party in the breakup of Gerald and Bea Alonzo.
Though they initially denied being more than friends, Julia and Gerald later admitted that they were in a romantic relationship last March.
