Vina Morales will reunite with Robin Padilla onscreen via Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo.
The singer-actress announced her reunion with her ex-boyfriend through her Instagram account (vina_morales) on Thursday, August 21.
Vina provided this caption (published as is), “#Bonifacio #movieentry #MMFF2014 I'm still all smile holding my Bonifacio Movie script ☺ I can already share to all of you that I will be working with Utol kong Hoodlum @robinhoodpadilla after so many years of not doing a movie together 😁 Eto na po "BONIFACIO" an entry for MMFF 2014, I'm portraying the wife 'Oriang' 😊 Thank you @thisisrinanavarro of Philippians Productions for making this happen.

The Vina-Robin tandem was popular during the '90s when they starred in movies such as Utol Kong Hoodlum (1991) and its sequel Miss na Miss Kita: Ang Utol Kong Hoodlum 2.
In a separate Instagram post, Vina revealed that other stars who will be part of Bonifacio are Junjun Quintana and Richard Quan.
Vina will be replacing Iza Calzado as Robin’s leading lady in the said Metro Manila Film Festival 2014 entry.
In an earlier interview with Robin, he expressed regret over the fact that he will not be able to work with Iza.
Robin said, “Noong una, nalungkot talaga ako. Talagang pilit kong hinabol ‘yon.
“Pero siyempre, may mga kontrolado ako na kasama sa trabaho at mayroon din akong hindi kontrolado.
“Mayroong mga bagong filmmakers ngayon, lalung-lalo na ‘yong mga gumagawa ng international movies, ang hirap makipag-argumento sa kanila.
“Kasi, kapag nilatagan ka na nila ng schedule, hindi na sila maghihintay sa big star.”
Despite this, Robin still hopes to work with his former Joaquin Bordado co-star Iza in a different project someday.
