Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza are set to try a new genre for their upcoming movie. According to Alden, they will do an action flick that will be shown later this year or in early 2018.

Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza are already gearing up for their next movie.

However, the AlDub love team's movie won't just have a romance theme. Rather, it will be an action love story.

In an interview with Philstar, Alden said that it will be a big challenge for him and his love team partner.

He pointed out, "We’re really preparing for the movie na gagawin po namin this year. It’s really different from what we’ve done. Hindi na siya rom-com.

"It involves a lot of action kasi ayun po yung napagisipan ng creatives and producers. It is an action love story.

"It is a new challenge for us kasi we’ve been used to rom-coms. We already did drama dun sa Destined To Be Yours.

"Ito yung isang side ng craft na hindi pa namin na-explore together."

Their first solo movie, Imagine You and Me, was shot in Italy. This time, their action flick will be shot here in the country.

"The film will be shot here in the Philippines kasi the producers have in mind parang ang daming nangyayari sa Pilipinas. Parang what we can do more for the country is to showcase its beauty through this movie."

The Pambansang Bae is proud of Maine that she is able to easily adjust in terms of acting, especially since it has only been two years since she joined show business.

He said, "Siya talaga yung malaki yung tinalon, e.

"I’ve been here for years before we’ve met and mas nakakabilib yung adjustment niya sa mundo namin.


"I can’t do what she’s doing noong nagsisimula ako. Kasi ang laki ng tinalon niya, e, from a regular girl to an actress. It’s really commendable."

According to the report, the movie will be shown either in late 2017 or early 2018.

MARTIAL LAW DOCUMENTARY. In addition to this, Alden is also set to do a martial law documentary wherein he will portray activist Boni Ilagan.

Ilagan is the vice chairperson of Samahan ng mga Ex-Detainees Laban sa Detensyon at Aresto (SELDA), a group for former political detainees. 

He is also a multi-awarded writer, and is the playwright of Pagsambang Bayan, which was inspired by the Martial Law.

"It's going to be a documentary of Boni Ilagan. He is an activist during the Martial Law, during Marcos time. So I'm gonna be him in this project and ikukuwento namin yung what happened to him during the Martial Law.

"So he was held captive for two years and since activist siya, he's one of the victims ng human rights... there's torture involved in this project."

This short film will be produced by GMA News and Public Affairs and will be helmed by Adolf Alix Jr.

Talent manager Perry Lansigan posted a photo of Alden in character together with veteran actress-director Gina Alajar.

He said, "SNBO SPECIAL..."Alaala" pictorial. Ang buhay ni boni ilagan na pinagbibidahan ni @aldenrichards02 at @ginalajar28"
