Actor Coco Martin and actress Julia Montes to star in the movie "A Moment In Time"

MANILA, Philippines – Actor Coco Martin was at a loss for words when asked about his excitement over his upcoming movie with actress Julia Montes.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Martin said he never thought his team-up with Montes would continue even after their top-rating series “Walang Hanggan” concluded late last year.

“Nung nalaman namin na may planong gawan ng movie yung team-up namin ni Julia, sobrang excited ako kasi 'yung narating ng ‘Walang Hanggan’ [ang layo na]. Lalo na makakasama ko si Julia, this time hindi na sa soap, sa pelikula na,” he said.

Martin said he accepted this project without hesitation because it offers a unique story with twists in the end.

“Excited ako lalo na nung kinuwento sa akin 'yung storya. Gusto ko kasi every time gumagawa ako ng project, hindi siya yung sa palagay ko ordinaryo na kilig-kilig or drama. Gusto ko laging may twist sa dulo,” he said.

Unlike in "Walang Hanggan" where they both shared intense and serious scenes, "A Moment In Time" will show the lighter and more romantic side of Martin and Montes.

“Maganda ang kwento, magaganda ang location namin. Nag-shoot kami sa Amsterdam, nagpunta kami sa Paris para dito. Sabi ko dati, dream ko gumawa ng pelikula sa abroad. Sakto naman itong pelikula namin, storya siya sa Pilipinas at sa abroad,” he siad.

Saying this movie fulfilled his dreams as an actor, Martin said "A Moment in Time" will be their offering to their fans who unwaveringly supported them since the beginning of their team-up.

Slated for release in theaters nationwide on February 13, "A Moment In Time" tells the romantic and emotional journey of Patrick and Jillian, who both sought true love and tried hard to hold on to it.

But they would soon discover that something could always shatter a seemingly perfect fairy tale.
