Richard, Gretchen Movie DelayedThe movie project which will star Richard Gomez and Gretchen Barretto has been delayed further, the actor has revealed.
The news comes after the film encountered some controversy and uncertainty after it was earlier reported that Dawn Zulueta will not be playing the lead female role for the movie. Initially, the movie was reported to be the most awaited reunion project for the Gomez-Zulueta love team.
However, Zulueta and Gomez both clarified in subsequent interviews that they are waiting for different and more fitting material for their movie together.
Regarding the delay in his movie with Barretto, Gomez said in an interview with ABS-CBN News, “Marami pa silang inaayos sa script. Yung project with Gretchen, nire-refine lang yung script,” referring to the script of her movie with Gretchen.
The film is supposed to be one of the main films to be showcased by Star Cinema for its 20th anniversary celebrations this year.
Veteran director Chito Roño along with Kapamilya actor John Lloyd Cruz are set to work on the film.
The film will be the story of the married couple who are about to end their marriage.
“Kaming dalawa 'yung mag-asawa,” Gomez said, referring to Barretto, “pero somehow along the way, nagkaroon kami ng high-profile case. We are working on it together pero on opposing ends.”
According to the actor, the movie will ask the couple whether this ordeal will save or end their relationship.
Meanwhile, Gomez also has sad news for fans waiting for his TV project with Zulueta.
“Yung sa amin ni Dawn na TV project, na-scrap din,” he said.
