Director Jason Paul Laxamana (rightmost) says this new movie of Xian Lim and Coleen Garcia will revolve around two troubled people. "Basically, it's a love story, romcom pa rin naman siya about two troubled people finding an escape sa isang countryside province. Kumbaga yung naging relationship nila is built on the fact na pareho silang may mga problema."


"
Hindi."

This was director Jason Paul Laxamana's answer when he was asked if Coleen Garcia will go sexy in her upcoming Star Cinema film.

Direk Jason Paul directed The Third Party--starring Angel Locsin, Zanjoe Marudo, and Sam Milby--which is currently being screened in cinemas nationwide.

According to the director of the still-untitled movie, Coleen and Xian will portray roles that are different from what they did in the past.

He said, "For some reason, yung nabibigay sa akin ng Star Cinema, laging yung actors ko they try something different. Like yung The Third Party.

"So ganun din dito, Xian has always been known to play roles na hot guy, corporate guy, snobbish, and then si Coleen, laging uptown girl, glam girl, pero babaliin natin yun dito.

"Si Xian ay isang writer sa isang magazine. Si Coleen naman ay isang resort owner so yun ang magiging meeting point nila na si Coleen gusto niyang magpasulat ng review sa resort niya."

Direk Jason Paul said that this new romcom will revolve around two troubled people.

"Basically, it's a love story, rom-com pa rin naman siya about two troubled people finding an escape sa isang countryside province.

"Kumbaga yung naging relationship nila is built on the fact na pareho silang may mga problema.

"So parang the story asks the question what if tapos na yung problema? Is it time to say goodbye? Is it time to part ways?"

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) was able to interview Direk Jason Paul during the premiere of Area, the closing film of QCinema 2016 last Saturday, October 22.


KIMXI BREAK-UP. For the past several years, Xian has always been paired with Kim Chiu in several TV shows and movies. 

For this reason, there might be some KimXi fans who might be shocked upon seeing Xian getting a new leading lady in this movie.

However, according to Direk Jason, he only saw positive reactions when this new team-up was announced.

He said, "So far, sa Instagram and Twitter, wala namang violent reaction dahil number one, si Kim Chiu mismo, she's happy naman that Xian is working with other people. Very professional."

Does he think Coleen and Xian will be able to pull-off their chemistry, especially since this is the first time they will be working together?

He confidently answered, "I think, kaya naman nila on the basis of the fact na pareho silang magaling na actors.

"So kumbaga kahit na first time nilang magkatrabaho, I doubt it kung mahihirapan sila sa chemistry kasi as actors, kaya nila yan."

It was last Friday, October 21, when the project was first announced during its story conference.
