MANILA, Philippines — Phenomenal love team “AlDub,” composed of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza, is getting out of its comfort zone through its new movie, which this time, is an action flick.

“We’re really preparing for the movie na gagawin po namin this year. It’s really different from what we’ve done. Hindi na s'ya rom-com. It involves a lot of action kasi ayun po yung napagisipan ng creatives and producers. It is an action love story,” Alden told Philstar.com in an interview.

Alden admitted that it is a challenging movie because it is new to them. “It is a new challenge for us kasi we’ve been used to rom-coms. We already did drama dun sa ‘Destined To Be Yours.' Ito yung isang side ng craft na hindi pa namin na-explore together.”

The movie, which is planned to be released later this year or early next year, will be shot here in the Philippines unlike their last movie, “Imagine You & Me,” which was shot in Italy.

“The film will be shot here in the Philippines kasi the producers have in mind parang ang daming nangyayari sa Pilipinas. Parang what we can do more for the country is to showcase its beauty through this movie,” Alden said.

The “Pambansang Bae” said that he is happy that Maine adjusted well in the industry through the projects they did. “S'ya talaga 'yung malaki 'yung tinalon eh. I’ve been here for years before we’ve met and mas nakakabilib 'yung adjustment n'ya sa mundo namin...I can’t do what she’s doing nu'ng nagsisimula ako. Kasi ang laki ng tinalon n'ya eh, from a regular girl to an actress. It’s really commendable.”

Recently, Alden, together with SnowCaps, treated over 30 hardworking street sweepers and traffic enforcers to a spa to give them the best day of their lives. To cap their special day, beneficiaries went home with the brand's glutathione supplements.

Alden said that these unsung heroes deserve to be pampered and more.
