Jolina Magdangal and Marvin Agustin's reunion movie is finally happening this 2019.
Jolina and Marvin met with directors Dan Villegas and Antoinette Jadaone, the producers behind the film outfit called Project 8 Cor. San Joaquin Projects.
Award-winning screenwriter Bibeth Orteza was also present during the March 12 meeting.
Project 8 Cor. San Joaquin Projects captioned its post using the elements of Jolina and Marvin's iconic 1998 movie, Labs Kita, Okey Ka Lang?
The caption read, "It's Bujoy and Ned!!! #LagingTapat #OhYes #BestFriendMoLangAko #MarJoXP8SJ"
Bujoy and Ned are the names of Jolina and Marvin's respective characters.
"Oh Yes" and "Best friend mo lang ako" came from Jolina's popular line in the film.
Some netizens speculated that the movie might be a sequel of their 1998 film, especially since Jolina expressed hope that their reunion movie will be connected with Labs Kita, Okey Ka Lang?
She told this to reporters, including PEP.ph (Philippine Enterainment Portal), during her surprise birthday party in November 2018.
Jolina said back then, "Sana konektado sa Labs Kita, Okey Ka Lang? or kung hindi man niya alam yun, yun yung sasabihin ko sa kanya.
"Kasi 20 years na yung pelikulang yun, e. So anong nangyari kay Ned at Bujoy talaga [after]."
It seems the producers intend to submit the upcoming MarJo movie for consideration to the 2019 Metro Manila Film Festival.
This is according to Marvin and Jolina's Instagram captions.
Marvin wrote on his Instagram post, "Such a beautiful day! Thank you sa mga kasama kong nagdadasal matuloy to. Ang pangako ko sayo labtim at mga #MarJo babies! Salamat @danvillegas and @tonetjadaone. Ngayon ipagdasal natin pumasok sa #MMFF2019 #MarJoComebackMovie2019"
Jolina used the hashtag #MMFF2019 in her post.
She wrote, "Oh yes totoo na ito! Ituloy na natin labtim @marvinagustin #MarJo #LongOverdue #mmff2019"
Marvin also posted a photo with Jolina and her children, Vika and Pele.
He wrote in the caption, "Ang saya natin labtim! Pero si Pele, may sinasabi “lagot ka sa tatay ko!” @markescueta nagpicture lang naman kami... pero si vika beautiful mas excited sa Picxel nya. enjoy your new art babies?? #marjocomebackmovie2019 #mmff2019"
The reunion movie marks the first time Jolina and Marvin will be seen together on the big screen after 20 years.
Their last movie together titled Hey Babe was shown in 1999.
Jolina and Marvin's last project on television was the 2015 afternoon series, Flordeliza.
