Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo will topbill ABS-CBN's Pangako Sa 'Yo, described as a "modern retelling of this great Filipino love story."
Daniel will portray Angelo Buenavista while Kathryn is cast as Yna Macaspac, the iconic characters once played by Jericho Rosales and Kristine Hermosa, respectively.
During the Kapamilya trade launch held last night, a three-minute trailer was shown indicating that Jodi Sta. Maria will portray Amor Powers while Angelica Panganiban will bring life to "Madam" Claudia Buenavista.
Eula Valdes portrayed the original Amor while Jean Garcia was previously cast as Claudia in the original Kapamilya teleserye that aired in 2000.
The two feisty women are seen having a showdown with Angelica's Claudia leading the charge.
Claudia shouts "Hayop ka!" as she slaps Amor who retaliates by also slapping her attacker.
Amor shouts, "Mas hayop ka! Pinatay mo ang anak ko! Hindi kita titigilan hangga't sa huling hininga ko, hangga't hindi ka bumabagsak!"
Claudia moves forward and taunts her: "Gawin mo! Gawin mo! Hindi kita uurungan!"
This remake will be directed by its original director, Rory Quintos.
Speculations about Kathniel starring in the remake of Pangako Sa ’Yo surfaced when the teen stars were tapped to reenact a scene for ABS-CBN’s summer station ID in 2013.
The trailer for the 2015 show indicated that "a more mature Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo" will be seen in this teleserye.
"Ikaw pa lang ang minahal ko ng ganito," Yna tells Angelo.
In return, Angelo kisses her hand and promises her: "Ipaglalaban kita Yna, pangako sa'yo."
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 who fell in love but are shocked to discover that they might be half-siblings.
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 also opted to localize the Jericho-Kristine starrer in 2013.
