Bea dropped the announcement on her Instagram account as she shared photos taken during her and Alden’s contract signing for the Philippine adaptation of the 2004 Korean film “A Moment to Remember.”
“Finally doing a movie with this one! I am so excited!” she gushed in the caption. “Thank you, Viva Films, for offering me this movie and for paving the way so this could all be possible.”
She also noted that the movie will be co-produced by GMA Films, Viva Films, and APT Entertainment.
Demand for the two to star as a love team for the big screen began when they did their first television commercial together. Bea, who just commemorated her 20th anniversary in Philippine showbiz, expressed her excitement for the project—her first one since parting ways with Star Magic’s Management.
“I love making films, and there is no better way to celebrate my 20 years in the business but to do movies,” she said.
“A Moment To Remember” follows the story of a couple who fall in love and build a happy life together until their lives change drastically when the wife is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease.
It will be directed by Nuel Naval, who is known for directing the award-winning Metro Manila Film Festival 2019 movie “Miracle In Cell No.7” which was also a local adaptation of the widely loved Korean drama film of the same name.
