MANILA – The three lead stars of “James & Pat & Dave” are elated that their upcoming movie will be Star Cinema’s Valentine offering this year.
Speaking to ABS-CBN News’ MJ Felipe on Monday, Loisa Andalio admitted this is a surreal moment for her because it’s the first time her own movie is going to be shown on Valentine’s Day.
“Nakakakilig kasi dati nag-aabang lang ako tuwing Valentine’s ng mga ipapalabas ng Star Cinema. Ngayon, kaming tatlo 'yung ipapalabas kaya sobrang blessed and honored talaga,” she said.
Donny Pangilinan, on the other hand, explained their movie had some revisions and adjustments which was why it took a while to be released.
“Para sa audience, para mas ma-understand nila 'yung characters namin lahat, naging mas deep 'yung story,” he said.
“James & Pat & Dave” is the sequel to the 2016 blockbuster “Vince & Kath & James.”
Ronnie Alonte reprises his role as James from the original film, which saw his love triangle with Vince and Kath. Ultimately, the latter two characters portrayed by Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto ended up together.
This time, James figures in a love triangle anew, with new characters Pat (Andalio) and Dave (Pangilinan).
Theodore Boborol returns as director for the sequel.
“Ito 'yung buhay ni James. Ano ang buhay ng hindi pinili? 'Yun ang aabangan ng mga tao. Nakakakaba din. Hindi ko alam kung paano ako kakapitan ng tao dito from sa first story ng ‘VKJ’ tapos ngayon. Excited ako, sana ma-appreciate nila,” said Alonte.
“James & Pat & Dave” will hit Philippine cinemas on February 12.
