They might not have ended up together in real life but Kris Aquino and Herbert Bautista now have a chance to hit it off on the big screen.
It was revealed earlier today, May 15, that former lovers Kris and Herbert will be working together in a movie produced by Star Cinema.
This movie will be helmed by award-winning filmmaker Antoinette Jadaone (director of blockbuster movies That Thing Called Tadhana, You're My Boss, among others. She was also the writer of the hit Metro Manila Film Fest entry English Only, Please.
In a previous interview, Herbert was asked if he is okay working with his ex-girlfriend in a movie.
“Well, siyempre… Kris Aquino yun! Kapag Metro Manila Film Festival, laging number one o number two ang mga pelikula ni Kris.
“So karangalan ko rin naman na makatrabaho yung Box Office Queen,” said the Quezon City Mayor.
Several hours ago, Kris posted an item that seems to indicate that she has been praying about this movie with Herbert.
In her Instagram account, Kris posted a photo with the words "Hoping my Parachute will open." She provided the caption:
"Getting ready for a presentation/meeting a year ago I'd never have believed could happen, and just up to a week ago I didn't believe I could handle working on the project on a personal level... But it's a first professionally, and I prayed about it, examined my heart, and realized I should just HAVE FAITH."
It will be recalled that Kris and Herbert had a short-lived relationship wherein the politician proposed to the TV host-actress.
However, things did not work out between the two of them and they parted ways.
In her Instagram account, Kris confirmed the news by posting: "It's happening. A Star Cinema movie for Mayor HB & me to be directed by @tonet_jadaone. #leapofFAITH
Thank You @starcinema, Inang Olive & tita @malousantos03 for this opportunity! #onceinalifetime"
