In September, Sharon Cuneta made the announcement of her reunion movie with long-time love team partner and ex-beau, Robin Padilla. And now, we can't help but get even more excited as news broke that young stars Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto are joining the veteran actors in the film.
Following the success of JoshLia's hit romantic-comedy, Love You to the Stars and Back, the two are set to return to the big screen with a powerhouse cast and a certified box office director in tow, Cathy Garcia-Molina.
In an interview with ABS-CBN, Joshua shared his excitement, "May gagawin kaming pelikula. Very exciting ito with Ms. Sharon Cuneta and Sir Robin Padilla. Abangan na lang po natin ang magiging storya niya pero malupit po ito."
Julia added they were surprised to be cast in the film, "We were very shocked, but at the same time, we really just grabbed the opportunity because this doesn't happen all the time. We are going to be working with icons."
Julia's father, Dennis Padilla, was a constant movie partner of Robin in his past films, while her aunt, Claudine Barretto, has shared the big screen with both Robin and Sharon.
The JoshLia tandem has definitely come a long way since the surprise success of the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival entry Vince, Kath, & James. Apart from their upcoming movie, the two are also set to star in a primetime show that Julia teased will be revealed "next month."
Sharon and Robin's last film together was Pagdating ng Panahon in 2001. In a separate interview, Sharon was all praises for Robin as a co-actor "I cannot wait because Robin is really my favorite person to work with. He's like my twin; ganyan ang tawagan namin, kambal. We are very much alike. My happiest shooting experiences have always been with Robin."
