Are John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo willing to do One More Chance sequel?

John Lloyd Cruz on doing One More Chance sequel: "Kung makakapagtayo tayo ng kwento na konektado pa rin sa totoong kwento ni Popoy at Basha, bakit hindi?" He was paired with Bea Alonzo in this blockbuster 2007 movie helmed by Cathy Garcia.


With the release of the book version of One More Chance, a lot of people are curious whether lead stars John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo will once again reprise their roles as Popoy and Basha.

This book version is slightly different from the movie that was first screened in cinemas in 2007. The Star Cinema film One More Chance became the highest grossing Philippine movie of 2007.

“It’s a first, so hindi namin alam na magiging book ito,” John Lloyd pointed out during the book and DVD launch held at Fairview Terraces recently.

“Dahil nag-iiba na ang panahon, kailangan naming mag-adopt sa panahon. We are introducing the story of Basha and Popoy through a book. And hindi po ito pareho nung nasa movie. May ilang content sa istorya na dinagdagan pa ng writer ng book na si Juan Miguel Sevilla.”

Bea added, “Ang surreal ng pakiramdam, kasi noong naka-kwentuhan namin yung mga writer nitong One More Chance, parang hindi kami makapaniwala na magbu-book signing kami ng libro ng One More Chance. Napag-kwentuhan namin tuloy about the past noong ginagawa namin yung movie.”

Eight years later, One More Chance is still being talked about as an iconic romance movie and its movie lines are often quoted in pop culture.

Both John Lloyd and Bea agree that being part of this huge project set the bar high for both of them.

“Well, siguro mas bumibigat lang yung responsibilidad to be able to deliver a story na pwede naming sabihin maganda at pwede naming ipagmalaki,” admitted John Lloyd.

For her part, Bea expressed her enthusiasm by saying, “Siyempre, masaya ako na naging parte ako ng pelikulang ito. Tama si Lloydie na may pressure. Pero ako, mas excited ako sa mga pwede pang mangyari.”

Did they ever imagine that their movie would become a book?

John Lloyd recalled, “Parang wala naman sigurong naka-isip na magiging book ito. Noong ginagawa namin ito, para lang kaming sira ulong gustong makapag kwento ng istorya nina Basha at Popoy, dahil siguro sobra naming minahal yung karakter , kasama nang iba pa naming barkada dito sa pelikula, pati yung mga tao sa likod ng camera. Naniniwala kasi ako doon sa kasabihan na ‘You can get what you give,’ so kung ano yung binuhos namin dito 8 years ago, hanggang ngayon ay nagbubunga pa rin siya ng maganda.”

Will there be a Part 2 for One More Chance?

Bea revealed, “Another movie together, I think meron kami this year, pero it doesn’t mean na sequel yun or part 2 ng One More Chance. Hindi pa namin alam sa Star Cinema kung ano ang plano nila.”

Are they willing to do a sequel of One More Chance?

John Lloyd explained, “Yun nga yung tinatanong sa akin ni Direk Cathy kanina, pero, mahirap siyang sagutin, hindi siya ganun kadali, e. Sabi ko lang kay Direk Cathy, kung makakapagtayo tayo ng kwento na konektado pa rin sa totoong kwento ni Popoy at Basha, bakit hindi? Pero kung pipilitin lang natin dugtungan to have Part 2, para sa akin, pangit kasi pag pinipilit, di ba? Lahat ng bagay na pinipilit ay pumapangit.”

For her part, Bea admitted, "Nakaka-excite na may clamor, gusto ng mga [na magkaroon ng Part 2] pero ako, mas nangingibabaw ang kaba na 'Kaya ba namin gawin?'"


Whether or not they will do a sequel, it has been confirmed that Bea and John Lloyd will do a new movie with director Cathy Garcia. Their reunion project might be shown within this year.
