Hindi na kailangang mag-audition ni Maricel Soriano para sa isang U.S. movie dahil siya mismo ang nilapitan at inalok ng mga producer para gumanap sa importanteng papel.

Dahil maganda at mahalaga sa kuwento ang karakter na gagampanan niya, tinanggap ng Diamond Star ng Pilipinas ang Re-Live: A Tale of an American Island, ang trans-led romantic-comedy movie na pagbibidahan nina Rachel Leyco at Rain Valdez.

Si Maricel ang gaganap na ina nina Rachel at Rain sa pelikulang tungkol sa isang transgender movie star na bumalik sa kanyang tahanan sa Guam para dumalo sa "do-over week" ng kanilang high school reunion.

Facebook post ni Rain: “We have a mom! Philippines Legendary ‘Diamond Star’ Maricel Soriano just signed on to be in my movie playing my mom!

“She was always our first choice and my mom and I would watch all her movies growing up. I remember saying to my team very early on, 'We need somebody like… Maricel Soriano.'

“And a year later, here we are! I am completely besides myself with excitement and happy tears.”

Ang entertainment site na Variety ang unang naglabas ng balita tungkol sa partisipasyon ni Maricel sa Re-Live, na mula sa panulat nina Rachel at Rain.

Mag-uumpisa ang shooting ng Re-Live sa November 2022 sa Hawaii at Guam.

Ito ang movie directorial debut ni Rain, na tumanggap ng outstanding actress nomination in a short-form comedy or drama series sa Primetime Emmys noong 2020 para sa kanyang pagganap sa Razor Tongue na siya rin ang lumikha at nag-produce.

Napili ang Re-Live noong 2021 para sa Inside Out’s LGBT Finance Forum at nanalo ng Inside Out Pitch Please competition noong 2019.
