MANILA – Following the box-office success of Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga’s first big-screen team-up, the actor revealed that Star Cinema is already planning to come up with a follow-up project for the two stars.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on the sidelines of the movie’s thanksgiving party, Pascual said he is ecstatic that he will be given another opportunity to work with Gonzaga.
“Pinag-uuspaan na nila. Naghahanap na ng material. Hindi siguro sequel, baka prequel,” the actor said in jest.
Gonzaga, meanwhile, said a second movie with Pascual would be a treat since she waited 13 years before finally sharing the screen with the actor again.
The two first worked together in a memorable TV commercial.
“Siyempre kapag naging ganito ang resulta ng isang pelikula, mae-excite ka kung ano pa kaya ang pwedeng maibigay sa kanila, kung ano pa kaya ang pwedeng ma-offer. Pero siyempre depende pa rin yun sa management, kay Mr. M (Johnny Manahan). Baka may bago na namang leading lady si PJ,” she said.
Gonzaga said working with Pascual is important for her because it shows how far she has gone in show business.
“Ito ang pinakaimportanteng bahagi ng career ko kasi parang full circle. I started just screaming his name tapos naging leading lady. Dreams really do come true. Kapag may pangarap, never give up on your dreams,” she said.
According to Star Cinema, the total earnings of “Starting Over Again” in three weeks is P375 million, breaking the personal records of Pascual and Gonzaga.
