Last month, Julia Barretto posted on Twitter saying “Hello, sheepmates!” She was pertaining to her working with Black Sheep studio. Black Sheep is the studio/prod house behind famous contemporary cinema hits, like Exes Baggage and Alone/Together.
The studio posted: “This just in: We have a new Sheepmate on the block!” Aside from welcoming Julia, the post was also building anticipation for the actress’ co-star in the upcoming film.
Then, three days ago, on March 15, stars Julia and Gerald Anderson took to Instagram, and both uploaded posts with similar cryptic captions. Julia’s post read: “Need a little quiet time for a while. Time to get away....” Gerald’s post, on the other hand, said: “Thirty years old...need time to think about the next chapter of my life...need a little quiet time for a while..time to get away....”
Followers of the two stars were quick to draw the connection. The comments sections of both stars’ posts were busy with guesses, well wishes, and giddy excitement.
Then, over the weekend, we got one of the biggest clues yet: Black Sheep, Julia, and Gerald all posted Japan pics with a highlight on one phrase: “Takas tayo.” Gerald and Black Sheep even posted nearly identical pics from similar vantage points. Their pics were snaps that showed a traditional cultural village in Japan.
Black Sheep doled out even more clues today, showing director clapboards of the upcoming Jason Paul Laxamana–directed film. They also finally revealed the title of the flick: Between Maybes. Could those stars behind the boards be Julia and Gerald?
Unless our sleuth skills are getting rusty, we suppose it’s safe to assume that Between Maybes is a film starring Julia and Gerald. From the title, the cryptic connections, and the Japan setting, we’ll dare to make another wild guess: The movie probably has a meantime love plot set during a soul-searching holiday. Let’s see if we’re correct. Waaah! We’re already so looking forward to catching this upcoming Black Sheep prod. Plus, with Japan as the setting—then, we’re absolutely sold!
