Heart Of Mine will be Jennylyn's second movie with Star Cinema. She previously starred in the 2016 film Just The 3 Of Us, where she was paired with John Lloyd Cruz.
ABS-CBN's upcoming projects were revealed during the #FamilyIsLove trade event of the Kapamilya Network held on November 27, at the Philippine International Convention Center.
Even though Richard is a former Kapuso, this is the first time that he will have Jennylyn as his leading lady.
The last time Jennylyn and Richard worked together was in the 2005 film Let The Love Begin, which was top-billed the love team of Richard and Angel Locsin. Back then, Jennylyn was paired with on-screen partner Mark Herras.
This marks the first time that Jennylyn and JM will do a movie together.
Jennylyn was supposed to be partnered with JM in the 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival entry Walang Forever. However, JM was replaced by Jericho Rosales.
Aside from Heart Of Mine, ABS-CBN Films is set to release five more titles in 2019.
Bea Alonzo and Charo Santos-Concio's horror movie Eerie, which was shot in 2018, will finally be shown in cinemas in 2019.
ABS-CBN Films' Black Sheep will offer three movies in 2019: Sakaling Maging Tayo, starring Elisse Joson and McCoy De Leon; Open, which will be top-billed by Arci Muñoz and JC Santos; and a still-untitled movie featuring Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil.
Jodi Sta. Maria will also star a horror movie called Clarita. ABS-CBN has not yet announced which film outfit will produce the movie.
