ABS-CBN actor Enchong Dee and GMA-7 actress Janine Gutierrez will soon team up in a movie titled Elise, which will be produced by Regal Entertainment, Inc.
However, this is not their first movie together since they previously teamed up in the 2016 horror flick, Lila.
Since they are from rival television networks, Enchong and Janine explain that there is excitement in being able to work with someone they don’t usually get to work with.
“Ako, yung ano not being able to work with her that much [is exciting],” explained Enchong at the story conference of their film, which took place September 11, Tuesday night.
“Yung merong feeling ko, [it is a] discovery, like if you go to work, for obvious reasons we’re not from the same network and being able to work with other artists it also develops your skill, your work.”
For the GMA-7 actress, she said that Enchong’s professionalism and fearlessness to tackle edgy roles make her eager to collaborate with him.
“Ako, I like working with Enchong kasi ang gaan niyang katrabaho, parang hindi ka na maiilang na magtanong sa kanya or makipag-usap sa kanya, very approachable,” she beamed.
“At saka gusto ko rin sa kanya na very adventurous siya sa mga projects niya.
“So alam ko na gusto niya na gumagawa ng mga bagay na out-of-the-box o hindi mo karaniwang nakikita sa TV or sa ibang movie, so, excited ako sa gagawin namin.”
Since they play love interests in the movie Elise, the two expressed that they are willing to do love scenes if they are required to do them.
Enchong, 29, justified, “I think we’re at the right age in that category na no limitations kasi parang feeling ko 29 tapos magli-limit ka sa sarili mo. Baka hanggang dun ka na lang, di ba?
Janine, 28, explained the premise of the film, which is considered a black comedy.
“Elise is a lifelong love story about these people. Their whole lives parang nag-i-iintertwine ang buhay nila.
“Parang tungkol siya sa great love.
“Ang tanong ay magkatuluyan ba ang great love niya?”
The two revealed that Elise is a bio-pic that is based on true events that happened to an actual person.
