Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil is set to star in a new romantic comedy movie which will be shown this year, this according to a video posted online by Star Cinema last October 12, 2016.
The movie is titled: My Ex and Whys.
LizQuen’s fans are all ready all hyped up for the upcoming movie as the #MyExAndWhysEqualsLizQuen trended last October 11 after Star Creatives’ Executive Roxy Liquigan announced the movie’s official title.
The film will be directed by the acclaimed director Cathy Garcia-Molina, who has worked with Gil and Soberano in ‘Forevermore‘ and ‘Dolce Amore’, this is the first movie they will do under Molina’s wing.
According to Director Cathy, Gil will be playing as a womanizer who is into real estate while Soberano will do a “quirky” role.
Gil describes his new role as, “exciting” and adds that the character and the story is “very now, very young and na-eexperience ng kabataan ngayon lang at hindi na-experience before.”
While Soberano shares, “ako ‘yung kailangan nakakatawa dito. So ako ‘yung nahihirapan dito kasi sa aming dalawa, ako ‘yung hindi nakakatawa.”
For Direk Cathy, the challenge is in portraying in a rom-com movie as opposed to just doing drama.
“Mas madaling magpaiyak kesa magpakilig at magpatawa. So it’s a challenge for them,” shares Direk Cathy.
Asked if the tandem and real life couple is already ripe as an artist, Molina said, “Hinog for a movie–matagal na. Pero hinog as in hindi na sila mahihirapan, I don’t think so. Every project has its own hirap na pagdadaanan.”
Adding, “And pag hindi sila nahihirapan, matatakot na ako. Kasi ibig sabihin, hindi na challenging ‘yung pinapagawa ko sa kanila. Ibig sabihin, we are not offering you something new.”
As to how the two prepares for the rom-com, Liza shares, “Kailangan kong manuod ng maraming rom-com movies, mga Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.”
To end, Gil told his fans who has long been waiting and asking for a new movie, “We are back!”
