Will Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo star in ABS-CBN's remake of Pangako Sa ‘Yo?
There have been rumors indicating that the Kathniel tandem will bring life to the popular teleserye previously topbilled by Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa.
In a recent interview with Daniel, he told PEP and other members of the media: “Ngayon, hindi pa ako sigurado talaga.
“Wala pa kaming meeting kung gagawin namin ang teleseryeng ‘yon."
One thing is sure, though. Daniel will once again be reunited with his perennial loveteam partner Kathryn.
“Pero ang alam ko lang is may teleserye akong gagawin na kasama pa rin si Kathryn.
“First quarter ‘yan ng 2015 at ang direktor po namin is si Direk Rory [Quintos] po ulit.”
It will be recalled that Direk Rory helmed their 2013 primetime series Princess and I. Incidentally, Direk Rory also served as the director of Pangako Sa 'Yo.

In 2013, Daniel expressed his willingness to reprise the role of Jericho in Pangako Sa 'Yo.
This was the time when Kathniel recreated Pangako Sa 'Yo for the 2013 summer station ID of ABS-CBN.
“Oo naman, bakit naman ako hihindi? Salamat kung sa akin ibigay yun, pero kung ibibigay din sa iba, okay lang din naman," he told PEP at the time.
He added: "Malaking karangalan sa 'kin yun, kasi Pangako Sa ’Yo yun, di ba? Kung sa’yo ibibigay… galing kay Jericho…Woooh! Thank you very much.”

As for Kathryn, she would grab the opportunity to star in the remake of Pangako Sa 'Yo should it be offered to her.
The 18-year-old actress was quoted by ABS-CBN as saying during her interview last August 20:
"Wow! Grabe, sobrang saya talaga. Kasi parang lahat tayo, alam yung Pangako Sa 'Yo. Walang taong hindi nakapanood no'n, bata palang ako noon.
"Kung bigyan ako ng chance na gawin 'yon, sobrang, sobrang saya no'n gawin. Isa yun sa mga classic talaga na teleserye. Sobrang thankful."
The phenomenal TV series Pangako Sa 'Yo launched the popular tandem of Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa in 2000.
The show revolves around the love story of Angelo Buenavista and Yna Macaspac. The said primetime series aired on ABS-CBN for two years.
It has been shown in over 20 territories such as Cambodia, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, China, Kenya, Ghana, Namibia, Zambia, Botswana, and Uganda, among others.
The Cambodian Television Network (CTN) also opted to localize the Jericho-Kristine starrer in 2013.
