"Yes. Actually, matagal na kami nagko-contact-an ni Marvin pero hindi lang talaga kami nabibigyan ng chance maupo at pag-usapan. Pero kung naalala ko two months ago, pagkagaling niya sa ibang bansa, sabi niya, 'yon daw yung aasikasuhin niya for ito hanggang 2019, dahil gusto nga talaga namin gumawa ng project na involved talaga kami. Gusto namin pelikula, e. Either co-prod or talagang hands on kami sa project, sa istorya, sa lahat."
For the movie's concept, Jolina wants to do a sequel of their 1998 movie Labs Kita, Okay Ka Lang? In the hit film, Jolina played Bujoy, a young girl who fell in love with her best friend, Ned. Marvin played the character of Ned.
Jolina said, "Sana konektado sa Labs Kita, Okay Ka Lang? or kung hindi man niya alam 'yon, 'yon yung sasabihin ko sa kanya. Kasi 20 years na yung pelikulang 'yon, e. So anong nangyari kay Ned at Bujoy talaga [after]."
PEP and other entertainment reporters spoke to Jolina during her surprise 40th birthday party held at Cove Manila on November 7.
MARVIN AGUSTIN'S PROMISE TO JOLINA
Marvin was one of the guests who arrived at Jolina's surprise party. In a separate interview with him, Marvin expressed delight over fans who still clamor for a MarJo reunion movie, especially when he posts throwback photos with Jolina.
"Nakakatawa kasi yung mga tao tuwang tuwa, kung ano-anong mga memories nakikita nila from those pictures. Sarap lang na natutuwa sila. I'm so happy because personally, I want to do a project with Jolina, not just because it's going to be a great project but you miss working with the person that you used to work [with] almost everyday."
Marvin promised Jolina that he will take care of the project. "Medyo na-delay lang kasi nabuntis nga si Jolina and I was away." In May 2018, Jolina gave birth to her second child with Mark Escueta.
Marvin continued: "Ako actually nagsasabi sa kanya na pag-usapan natin, I promise you na akong maglalakad. 'Yan ang sinabi ko sa kanya, ako ang mag-aasikaso para matuloy talaga at maganda yung project. So I messaged that to her. It's just the right project and the right timing, but basta may pinangako ako kay Jolina, e. Tutuparin ko 'yon."
