MANILA, Philippines -- Actress Iza Calzado confirmed that she will no longer be part of the reunion movie of actor John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo.

In an interview with Push.com, Calzado cited conflict of schedules as the reason for her backing out.

“Kasi ang taping nila John Lloyd for 'A Beautiful Affair' ay T-TH (Tuesday and Thursday). Ako naman M-W-F (Monday, Wednesday and Friday), so hindi po talaga magsalubong ang aming schedule. Of course, it is their film, the priority is their schedule. Ako naman po ay nakasali dun. I would think na lang na siguro this is not meant to be my comeback film for Star Cinema. Maybe it’s something else,” said Calzado, who stars in the hit primetime series "Kahit Puso'y Masugatan."

Calzado admitted she was really excited to be working with box-office director Cathy Garcia-Molina for the third installment of the "A Very Special Love" series.

“Siyempre nanghihinayang naman ako. Ang pangit naman sabihin na walang panghihinayang. Siyempre I was looking forward to working with John Lloyd, Sarah and everybody else on the set and Direk Cathy. Pero marami talagang proyekto na nand’yan na, nawawala pa. And sometimes it’s really for the best,” she said.

Currently, Calzado is busy with television series "Kahit Puso'y Masugatan."
