Paulo Avelino is thrilled to learn that fans of the 2017 indie hit, I'm Drunk, I Love You, look forward for its sequel, I Love You, I Do.
"It's good thing, it's good thing, because it's actually interesting to know where both characters went after," the actor briefly told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during a pre-Valentine's event held at Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong.
The film's director and writer, JP Habac, announced the sequel in October 2018 through his Twitter account.
Paulo, who co-starred with Maja Salvador in the film, was one of its producers.
Will he wearing a producer's cap again for the sequel?
He replied, "I probably am, most probably."
But the actor-producer has yet to talk about the film in his social media account.
Both Direk JP and Maja had already tweeted about the sequel with the actress teasing a scene.
But Paulo would prefer to manage people's expectations about it.
He said, "I don't like over-hyping something. I just don't believe in over-hyping something.
"We'll talk about it when everything's final."
IDEA FOR SEQUEL
Early in the year, it was revealed that I Love You, I Do will take place seven years after the events of the first film.
Paulo revealed that this time jump was something he had in mind.
He remarked, "Well, I wanted sana every after seven years. You also see the change in characters."
As of now, Paulo has yet to read the current draft of the script.
"JP just sent me the script... I'll probably read it one of these days.
"We'll see. We'll see what happens..."
Will the film be released this year?
Paulo, who is part of the ABS-CBN prime-time series The General's Daughter, answered, "I'm not sure. We'll know."
