MANILA – It seems that fans of Richard Gomez would have to wait a little longer before they see the actor back on the big screen again.

Last November, it was reported that Gomez will do a film with Gretchen Barretto and John Lloyd Cruz which will be part of Star Cinema’s 20th anniversary offering.

He, however, told ABS-CBN News in an interview that the project encountered some delays because its scriptwriters are still refining the story.

“Yung sa ABS, na-stall yung movie project namin ni Gretchen. Marami pa silang inaayos sa script. Yung project with Gretchen, nire-refine lang yung script,” he said.

In a previous interview, Gomez revealed that the story of his movie with Barretto will revolve around the marriage of a couple which is on the verge of falling apart.

“This is a story of a couple whose marriage is about to end. Kaming dalawa 'yung mag-asawa pero somehow along the way, nagkaroon kami ng high-profile case. We are working on it together pero on opposing ends. The movie will ask us, will this save or will this end our marriage?” he shared.

The movie is set to be directed by Chito Roño.

Aside from the movie delay, Gomez said his supposed television project with Dawn Zulueta was also set aside.

“Yung sa amin ni Dawn na TV project, na-scrap din,” he briefly said.

While waiting for his upcoming movie to materialize, Gomez said he keeps himself busy by doing fundraising events for the victims of super typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan).

Along with his wife Lucy Torres, Gomez and other Kapamilya stars joined forces in producing boats for fishermen affected by the super typhoon which hit the country in November last year.
