Temptation Island is the latest film offering from Regal Entertainment and GMA Films that will feature GMA-7 stars Marian Rivera, Heart Evangelista, Lovi Poe and Solenn Heusaff.

This sexy comedy film is about a group of beauty contest finalists stranded on a desert island without food, water, and shelter.

Written by Toto Belano and directed by the late Joey Gosiengfiao in 1980, the original movie starred four beauty contest title-holders; Azenith Briones (Miss Photogenic, Mutya ng Pilipinas 1975), Jennifer Cortez (Binibining Pilipinas-Universe 1978), Bambi Arambulo (Miss Maja Pilipinas 1977) and Dina Bonnevie (1st Runner-up, Miss Magnolia 1979).

Just like the the original movie, the 2011 version of Temptation Island will be shot among the sand dunes of Paoay, Ilocos Norte.

During the April 1 episode of 24 Oras, Heart Evangelista explained why she decided to switch roles with Temptation Island co-star Lovi Poe.

"Di ko masyadong makayanan kasi yung mga scenes na medyo...ayoko namang tanggapin kung may mga hindrances. So why not something like a role na magiging kumportable ako...yun naman na virgin roles. Konting bikini. Konting cleavage...medyo legs, ganyan," revealed Heart when she was interviewed during the story conference of the movie held recently.

Since the shooting will last for a week, she and her boyfriend, Brazilian Daniel Matsunaga will be temporarily separated. But Heart isn’t bothered. "Yes, I know...my Papa Daniel, but it’s ok...in Jesus name, forever kaming magsasama...what’s one week?"

Her boyfriend Daniel was very concerned when her family’s house in Carmona, Cavite got burned down recently.

Though still feeling extremely sad, she has come to terms with the misfortune and "accepted" it. Heart related that Daniel "was very, very nice, ’saka yung kapatid niya...brother niya. They all went and brought clothes for my Dad kasi walang damit ang Daddy ko. They brought him food."


When asked about her summer plans, Heart excitedly disclosed that she is set to go to Brazil with Daniel. She’s looking forward to this trip. "I really plan to go to Brazil. Hopefully pag nag-showing na ang movie, e-exit thing na ako. Of course, I’ve never been there. Magte-take ng pictures, meeting Daniel’s family, seeing their culture, their food, everything, so I’m very excited for that."
