Fast-rising tandem Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto are set to bring kilig to their followers anew with a new movie that would be helmed by box office director Antoinette Jadaone.
The tandem that wowed the crowd during the last Metro Manila Film Festival with their film Vince and Kath and James are taking on an unusual love story.
“Tungkol siya sa isang lalaki na na-meet ang isang sobrang weird na babae, loka-lokang babae, na sa sobrang weird niya, naniniwala siya sa aliens,” said Direk Tonet in an interview during the film’s recent story conference.
Joshua’s character, according to Direk Tonet, would eventually support Julia’s character’s fascination for aliens.
“Si Joshua, hindi siya naniniwala sa aliens pero dahil nagustuhan niya si Julia sa unang pagkakita niya, na-endear siya sa kanya so sinakyan niya yung pagkagusto ni Julia sa aliens,” said Direk Tonet, who would also be writing the story’s script.
The upcoming movie’s lead stars, for their part, are very much thrilled that they had the chance to work together again.
“Ako sobrang excited na ako. Hindi lang sa character. Excited ako maka-work si direk. Siyempre magsasama ulit kami ni Julia,” said Joshua.
Julia said she is looking forward to the fact that she would be portraying a different character once again.
“Ako very excited ako for this project and this role that was given by direk and Star Cinema because different siya from VKJ definitely. Yung role na gagawin ko dito, not something I’ve done before. Sa kuwento pa lang ni direk, parang ang challenging na niya,” said Julia.
As of the moment, Direk Tonet revealed that they have yet to come up with other cast members aside from Joshua and Julia.
Will their Vince and Kath and James co-star Ronnie Alonte be part of the movie?
“I don’t think he’s part of this because he’s doing another movie that is also under Star Cinema,” said Julia.
The still untitled movie, according to Direk Tonet, is slated to come out this year.
