Alexa will be playing the role of Corporate Communications Manager Bobbie (originally played by Bea Alonzo), while Charlie, Gillian, and Belle will be playing as charismatic eldest sister Teddie (Toni Gonzaga), independent Alex (Angel Locsin), and level-headed Gabbie (Shaina Magdayao).

Alex also revealed that the director for the upcoming movie will be Mae Cruz Alviar (Dolce Amore, Crazy Beautiful You) instead of Giselle Andres, who was initially said to be helming it when the news was first dropped.
