Kapamilya stars Angelica Panganiban and Gerald Anderson are set to team up for an upcoming sexy drama movie under Star Cinema. It will be the first time the two talented actors are working together on the big screen.
The yet to be titled film will be directed by Ruel Bayani, the man behind the blockbuster hits, No Other Woman and One More Try. During the film's story conference held last Friday, Bayani described the film as "a different kind of love that will obviously appeal to a more mature audience." He added that Angelica and Gerald will have numerous love scenes in the movie. Filming is set to start today and will be released this year.
