Dennis Trillo, Lovi Poe, Jake Cuenca and Carla Abellana will topbill a story of love, deception and infidelity in Regal Entertainment's upcoming movie, My Neighbor's Wife.
Jake and Carla play husband and wife while Dennis and Lovi portray lovers. All four are friends but their friendship turns sour when Lovi engages Jake in sex.
Since the theme of My Neighbor's Wife involves marital infidelity, viewers can expect daring scenes that the four stars have never done before.
Each of them went beyond their limitations to do the required steamy, sexy scenes.
Of the four lead stars, Lovi is described as the most daring since she showed skin in torrid love scenes with Dennis and Jake.
Carla, who has a wholesome image after starring in GMA-7's fantaserye Magic Palayok, dared to bare enough of herself while romancing Jake and Dennis on screen.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) was able to witness the last location shoot of the lead stars at the Shrine of St. Therese of the Child Jesus in Resorts World Manila last August 12.
Direk Jun points out that this is his first time to shoot a non-horror film for Regal Entertainment. He previously helmed horror flicks such as Tarot (2009) and Mag-ingat Ka sa Kulam (2008).
"I'm really proud of this film kasi na-manage nang mabuti ng cast ko ang mga role nila.
"Talagang pinag-aralan nila nang mabuti. Ang gagaling kasi ng mga artista ko, e, they know where they coming from, familiar sila with their roles agad.
"'Yong chemistry talaga nila, hindi mo na matatawaran, e. So walang kahirap-hirap as far as getting that best performance from the actual script is concerned."
Direk Jun also added, "Saka ang maganda dito wala talagang sapawan, which is 'yon talaga ang iniwasan namin from the first place.
"It also helped na mag-best of friends in real life si Jake at Dennis. Si Carla and Lovi naman mag-friends na rin dahil nga they came from the same network.
"It's an opportunity to work with these four ng sabay!"
