Movie is Currently Put On Hold
A reunion movie between Angel Locsin and Richard Gutierrez has been put on a pause.
Richard admits this as he does his contract signing with ABS-CBN on 10th of May 2018. Richard is set to have another 2-year exclusive deal with the TV network.
Richard stated, “I think we should ask someone from Star Cinema to answer [if it has been shelved]. But me, I am just looking forward to any project or movies na I’ll be doing with Star Cinema. But for now, I think it’s put on hold. I think pinapaganda lang 'yung script.”
In the mid-2000s, Gutierrez and Locsin was one of the most popular love teams. In between 2004 - 2006, they top-ranked six big screen outings. The movie which is under the production of Star Cinema would also starred Angelica Panganiban. This movie was supposed to be their movie together in 10 years.
The two were paired together recently in ABS-CBN's fantasy teleserye, "La Luna Sangre."
Despite the news, Richard is ecstatic for all the new and upcoming projects ABS-CBN has prepared for him. Also, it is more exciting as he is now officially a part of Star Magic.
He continues on saying, “My mom decided to collaborate with Star Magic. Obviously it is the premiere talent management in the country. I’ve always wanted to work with them. They were able to make stars. They know what they are doing. I trust them.”
He added, “My mom din kinda wants to slow down, retire na and enjoy life and enjoy her grandkids. Ayaw na niya masyado magpa-pressure in managing,”
According to Gutierrez, one of the most important events in his life which is a wedding with his partner Sarah Lahbati has also been postponed.
He clarified that, “Medyo na-push back lang 'yung wedding. Of course we are planning it. We are talking about it but now, lahat ng attention namin nasa baby and this opportunity to work with ABS-CBN. We will get to the wedding soon.”
Both he and Sarah are busy attending their newborn baby and being second time parents. They are cherishing each moment of it.
“He’s very healthy, very long baby. I think he’s gonna be taller than Zion. He’s a big baby. A few months only pa lang siya so maraming sleepless nights pero worth it yung pagod,” he said.
When questioned on how Zion, their eldest son is coping with the new baby brother, he mentioned: “We try to make Zion involved sa pagpapalaki kay Kai as much as possible. Nasanay si Zion na lahat ng attention nasa kanya and then may bagong baby. It’s still the adjustment period so tina-try pa din naming i-balance yun. But more than anything, masaya kami sa bahay.”
