MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Julia Montes and Alden Richards are set to star in the upcoming romantic drama movie “Five Break-Ups and a Romance.” The film, written and directed by Irene Villamor, was announced at a press conference held on Tuesday at a hotel in Quezon City.
Montes expressed her surprise and excitement when she found out that she was cast in the film, saying “Nung nalaman ko po siyempre nagulat ako, hindi na ako magkukunwari. ‘Seriously, ako po?’ Then siyempre honored and happy ako to work with him.”
Richards, on the other hand, shared his enthusiasm for working with Montes.
“Na-excite ako with the idea of me being paired with Julia kasi I know how brilliant of an actress she is. Kumbaga parang si Jules ‘yung isa sa leading ladies, parang naka-partner ko so far, by far na unang meeting pa lang ay wala ng pretensions, naramdaman ko ang sincerity immediately. So hindi rin ako natakot to give my all in this film,” he said.
“I think this is a start of a really good friendship and a really good working relationship with her. Sana hindi ito ‘yung huli, nandoon na ako,” Richards added.
Villamor praised Montes and Richards’ acting skills and chemistry and said that the film will tackle the complications of a relationship.
“Sa love story kasi lalo na kung tungkol sa dalawang tao umiikot ang kuwento, kailangan mo ng mahuhusay, kasi sila lang ang nakikita mo sa screen. Kailangan mong mapalabas ‘yon, kailangan ko ng husay,” she said.
“Ito mas nag-dwell ako sa relasyon, gaano ba kakumplikado, gaano ba kahirap and then gaano ba kasarap ‘yung relasyon kaya siya five break-ups. Try natin manakit ng limang beses. …This is about Justine and Lance na parehong strong people, mas complex na relasyon,” Villamor added.
This project marks Montes’ return to the big screen after her last TV project “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” ended last year. The actress previously shared her plans to become more active in terms of acting this year.
The movie “Five Break-Ups and a Romance” starring Julia Montes and Alden Richards is set to begin shooting soon, and fans of both actors are eagerly anticipating its release. – WhatALife!/Jayve
