MANILA — Here’s a fresh team-up for moviegoers: Alex Gonzaga and Xian Lim will co-star in a film billed as an “adult romance comedy” scheduled for release this year.

“It’s in the works now,” Alex’s sister, actress Toni Gonzaga, told ABS-CBN News on Wednesday.

Toni is producing the project under her film outfit TinCan, in collaboration with Viva Films. TinCan’s maiden offering was the
2018 Metro Manila Film Festival entry “Mary, Marry Me,” which co-starred the sisters along with Sam Milby.

The director of that movie, RC delos Reyes, will also helm this new Alex Gonzaga-starrer, which has the working title “Love the Way You Lie.”

“It’s a mixture of drama and comedy, pero may hint of naughtiness and sexiness this time,” delos Reyes earlier said in a February press conference. “It’s an adult romance comedy. At the same time nandoon pa rin ang pain of loss and heartbreak.”
