Actor and singer Alden Richards (age 27) and actress and singer Kathryn Bernardo (age 22) will topbill a movie that will be directed by blockbuster filmmaker Cathy Garcia-Molina.
The Kathryn-Alden movie is slated for release in 2019 but is untitled as of now. It will be produced by Star Cinema and will be shot in Hong Kong. According to Director Cathy, the film is originally the idea of Olivia “Inang” Lamasan.
The movie is a romance-drama with a sprinkle of comedy. It will follow the story of millennials who are new OFWs.
Director Cathy hinted it will also be about two strangers meeting. And since Kathryn and Alden are more like strangers in real life, it wouldn’t be too far from the truth.
Alden is a GMA Network artist and Kathryn is a Star Magic talent, and it’s the first time that they will be working on a project together.
It will be Alden’s first project with Star Cinema and with Director Cathy Garcia-Molina.
In a story conference with Kathryn Bernardo, Director Cathy Garcia Molina, and Olivia Lamasan, Alden Richards said:
Yung thought na Star Cinema, tapos si Kathryn ang makakapareha ko, tapos si Direk Cathy, parang total package na ‘to. Wala na akong mahihiling pa. Sobrang saya ko na I was given the chance to be here.
[The thought that it’s Star Cinema, and Kathryn will be my partner, then it’s Director Cathy, it seems like it is a total package. I cannot wish for anything anymore. I am so happy that I was given the chance to be here.]
For her part, Kathryn said she is nervous and excited at the same time for having the chance to work with Alden.
