Kim Chiu returns to doing a movie with Regal Films after 10 years.

She is set to top-bill the upcoming film One Great Love, where she will be paired with GMA-7 actor Dennis Trillo.

According to Kim, this is the first time that she will work with a leading man from the rival station.

She said about this, "Kinakabahan nga ako, e. Di ko lang pinapahalata sa kanya.

"Kasi si Dennis, nakapaghost ako ng awards night, lagi siyang may award, e.

"So parang, okay, magaling talaga siya na actor so matsa-challenge yung acting side ko."

During the July 30 story conference forĀ  the show, Kim personally met Dennis for the first time.

How did it go?

"First time ko din siya makita in person na ganito kalapit kasi pag awards night malayo, andoon siya tapos di kami nagkikita o nag-uusap, ngayon lang talaga.

"Tahimik lang kami. Sabi ng isang reporter, 'Tahimik lang 'yan Kim.'

"Sabi ko, 'Maingay naman ako, e.'"

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) spoke to Kim after the story conference of One Great Love at 38 Valencia Events Place, Quezon City.

REGAL COMEBACK.

Kim is excited to work again with Regal Films after 10 years.

Her last film with Mother Lily Monteverde's film outfit was the 2008 installment of Shake, Rattle, and Roll for its "Class Picture" episode.

Known as a contract star of ABS-CBN Films's Star Cinema, how did Kim's Regal comeback materialize?

She answered, "Nagpaalam naman ako kay Inang [Olive Lamasan], tinanong ko naman kung okay lang na gumawa ako ng Regal habang wala pang movie sa Star.

"So sabi nila, 'Sige, hija, kung gusto mo yung movie, okay lang.'

"Sobrang nice naman ni Inang na, 'Okay, kasi wala pa kami, magkakaroon naman kami for you pero kung gusto mong gawin yung Regal, okay lang.'

Kim also shared a few details about the movie, which also stars JC de Vera, Miles Ocampo, and Marlo Mortel.

"This is a love story na coming-of-age love story na I think maraming makakarelate kasi nakarelate ako, e.

"Yung isang bagay na naka-catch ng attention ko sa pelikulang ito is yung first line ng first sequence.

"'28 ka na, kelan ka ikakasal?' Ha? Anong meron dito sa pelikulang 'to! So binasa ko siya nang buo.

"Nasa airplane ako binabasa ko to, pagbaba ko ng airport tumawag ako sa handler ko, 'Ate, gagawin ko 'to, gusto ko 'to!'

"So much feels, as in super hindi mo talaga maiisip. And 'yan talaga yung pinagdadaanan ngayon ng 28-year-old na babae."

One Great Love is directed by Eric Quizon.

A playdate has yet to be announced.
