LOOK: Angelica and JM Reprise Roles in ‘That Thing Called Tadhana’ Live Script Reading

In case you missed it, Angelica Panganiban and JM De Guzman reprised their roles as Mace and Anthony in beloved Antoinette Jadaone film “That Thing Called Tadhana” during a script reading held via Facebook Live on Sunday, April 12.

Hosted by Juan Miguel Severo, the script reading was part of Lockdown Cinema Nights which is a fundraising program for the benefit of employees in the local film industry who have lost their livelihood due to the Luzon-wide lockdown amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) disease.

Angelica and JM read the part of the script where their two characters were seated next to each other on the bus on their way to Baguio City. They even read lines of a scene that was eventually deleted from the final movie.

Other than the live script reading, Angelica, JM, and director Jadaone answered many questions from fans about the film.

Jadaone also discussed the possibility of a “That Thing Called Tadhana” sequel.

“May nagawa na akong first few sequences pero hindi ko pa siya naitutuloy. So siguro, like kung paano namin ginawa yung una, huwag siyang pilitin,” she said.

When prodded about the plot of the probable second installment, she answered: “Hindi ko alam. Feeling ko malalaman ko yun sa time na sinusulat ko na siya. Kasi nagbabago naman ang kuwento base sa kung nasaan ka or kung ano ang paligid mo sa time na sinusulat mo.”

Both Angelica and JM agreed that they would love to reprise their roles if ever a sequel pushes through.
