- “All You Need is Pag-ibig” will push through
- Star Cinema reveals the final cast
- Kris Aquino is still doing the project but with a new partner
MANILA, Philippines – Star Cinema has announced the final cast of its official entry to the 2015 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF), “All You Need Is Pag-ibig”.
In an October 23 article published by ABS-CBN News, it said that Mico del Rosario, the advertising and promotions manager of Star Cinema, has announced that Kris Aquino will still lead the lineup; with her new leading man, Derek Ramsay.
The movie would have starred the “Queen of All Media” opposite her ex-boyfriend, Quezon City mayor Herbert Bautista. However, the “tumultuous relations” between the two led to a series of controversies.
Initially, Aquino announced she will drop out of the movie but clarified it’s not because of Bistek, but because the only person she asked for, her cinematographer, just couldn’t do the project because of scheduling conflicts.
However, when the Quezon City mayor said in an interview that Aquino wanted him to run for reelection, the latter admitted that her “tumultuous relations” with Bistek was the real reason why she pulled out from the movie.
A few days after she made her announcement, Aquino dropped a hint that the movie might still push through.
On her Instagram account, she posted a photo of her with several people. It was captioned: “Just finished a brilliant presentation from @krizgazmen! Happy Birthday to our beloved Ate @leacalmerin! Thank You God for putting everything into place w/a positive #LoveLoveLove cast! #WhatsMeantToBeWillAlwaysFindAWay #NoNegativity #BeautifulCast #AllYouNeedIsPagibig”
Kriz Gazmen is the creative writer of “All You Need Is Pag-ibig”.
Included in the final cast are “Pangako Sa ‘Yo” stars Jodi Sta. Maria and Ian Veneracion.
The popular tandem of Kim Chiu and Xian Kim will also join the cast.
