Jennylyn Mercado, John Lloyd Cruz to star in Star Cinema project


MANILA, Philippines - After working with Derek Ramsay, Sam Milby and Jericho Rosales, GMA-7 star Jennylyn Mercado will be paired up with another ABS-CBN actor.

The 28-year-old actress will star with John Lloyd Cruz in a movie project for Star Cinema.

Jennylyn revealed the news by posting a photo of herself with John Lloyd on her official Facebook page on Monday.

Pilipino Star Ngayon columnist Salve Asis reported that the movie is slated to be released this summer.

Cathy Garcia-Molina will direct the movie.

This is the first time the two will be working on a project together. However, this isn't the first time Star Cinema, the movie production outfit of ABS-CBN, got a talent from a rival network.

Last year, TV5 actor Derek Ramsay starred with Coleen Garcia in their movie "Ex with Benefits," while GMA-7 actor Dennis Trillo paired up with Maja Salvador in "You're Still the One."

Dingdong Dantes also starred in three Star Cinema projects: "Segunda Mano" in 2011, "One Last Try" in 2012 and "She's The One" in 2013.

Jennylyn's two movies in 2015, "Pre-Nup and "Walang Forever," were with long-time ABS-CBN actors Jericho Rosales and Sam Milby.

John Lloyd recently appeared in "A Second Chance" with Bea Alonzo and the Metro Manila Film Festival entry "Honor Thy Father."
