While most of his fans expressed excitement over his new project, some aren't so keen about Jessy.
One Instagram user commented, "Ito lang ang di ko panunooring movie mo, @jerichorosalesofficial. I don't like Jessy. I'm sorry."
This prompted the actor to reply, saying, "'Wag po tayo magsalita [nang] tapos. :) Maganda story. Baka may mapulot ka."
When another commenter questioned why Jessy was co-starring in a movie with Jericho, he was quick to respond in her defense: "Why not? She's perfect for the role."
Jericho and Jessy's movie will be part of this year's Metro Manila Film Festival.
