Dawn, Richard to star in new movie-A A +A
Thursday, July 18, 2013
SEASONED actors Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta will revive the magic of their team up on the big screen in an upcoming Star Cinema movie.
The two recently signed a contract with ABS-CBN’s film outfit for the said movie project, which is part of Star Cinema's 20th anniversary year-long celebration.
According to both actors, they are excited to do the film, because a lot of their supporters are asking for it, especially after they've done "Walang Hanggan" on television.
"Matagal na din kasi kami hindi gumagawa ng pelikula. Actually dati ang ginagawa namin puro movies, tapos ngayon lang kami gumawa ng teleserye tapos ganun pa ka successful kaya talagang kinagulat namin," Dawn said.
The 44-year-old actress added: "Ngayon na babalik kami sa dati naming gawi, which is movies, I'm excited and at the same time kind of nervous kasi parang 20 years in the making ito."
The two are known for their movies "Filipinas" (2003) and "Hihintayin Kita Sa Langit" in 1991.
Joining them in the project are box-office actor John Lloyd Cruz and "Maria Mercedes" lead star Jessy Mendiola.
Richard said he's excited to work again with John Lloyd after they've done few episodes of comedy series "Palibhasa Lalake" in the past.
"I'm happy to work with John Lloyd. Bata pa kami noon and yung genre namin ay comedy, but this time it's a serious movie," he said.
For Dawn, she said she is looking forward to working with the younger generation of stars.
"I'm very excited because I really wanted to work with John Lloyd. Si Jessy, I've seen her already and naging successful naman yung mga ginagawa niyang teleserye."
In a separate interview with Jessy, she said she was surprised of her inclusion in the project. She discovered that she's part of the movie through the announcement made by her mother station on its primetime newscast.
"Nagulat ako and totoo ba ito? Tinext ko agad yung Star Cinema. I want to do it. Richard-Dawn yun and John Lloyd Cruz,” she said.
It's going to be a big movie for me because it's going to be my second film," she added.
The Richard-Dawn reunion movie will be shown in theaters before this year ends. (Sunnex)
