Even Piolo Pascual doesn't know if his teleserye Written In Our Stars, where he is to be paired with Toni Gonzaga, will still push through.
In a bloggers's conference with Piolo last night, January 4, PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked about the status of the soap opera, since Toni has returned to work after giving birth.
Piolo answered with a joke, "It's still being written in the stars, sinusulat pa rin siya sa stars!"
He then continued, "I was finally able to see Tin [Toni's nickname] last week sa ASAP.
"I asked her, and both of us are still very interested to [do it].
"Of course, we've done two weeks' worth of story, and it's a nice concept."
However, he clarified, "But it's not up to us if we're still gonna do it or not.
"But as of now, wala pang balita as to when we’re gonna do it, if we're still gonna do it.
"But, yeah, I'd be so much willing to do it with Tin."
First announced in 2015 through a media conference, Written In Our Stars was supposed to mark the reunion of Toni with Piolo, after their 2014 movie Starting Over Again became a smashing success at the box office.
Should the teleserye push through, Toni will end up working with perennial onscreen partner Sam Milby. They have worked together in several movies, teleserye, and drama anthology episodes.
Sarah Lahbati, Marco Masa, and Jolina Magdangal had also been announced as part of the main cast.
During ABS-CBN's 2015 Christmas special, a trade trailer was released for the teleserye, which revolves around Aira (Toni), who is heartbroken after the death of her husband (Piolo).
Since then, Aira has become mean to people around her. The spirit of her husband is given a mission to save her soul so that she can go to heaven.
However, in February 2016, Toni became pregnant. At the same time, rumors circulated that Written In Our Stars was on hold.
In an interview with PEP last March, Jolina confirmed that they had stopped taping for the TV series.
In April, Toni confirmed her pregnancy in ASAP.
In an interview with PEP, Piolo confirmed that the teleserye was currently on hold to give way to Toni's condition.
In May, Piolo revealed that a new leading lady was supposed to replace Toni for the TV series, but he said, "Two weeks na yung nakabangko namin.
“Talagang naka-program na ako, nakakundisyon na ako na si Tin talaga ang ka-partner ko. Once na okay na siya, fit to work, tutuloy namin."
Currently, Piolo is finishing his upcoming movie, Once in a Lifetime, where he is paired with Yen Santos, while Toni has already returned to ASAP and is slated to resume hosting duties on Pinoy Big Brother Lucky 7 this Saturday, January 7.
