Alden first time sa remake

SHOW-MY - Salve V. Asis (Pilipino Star Ngayon) - March 4, 2021 - 12:00am

Tatlong film production giants – Viva Films, GMA Pictures and APT Entertainment – ang nagsama-sama para sa co-production ng Philippine adaptation ng Japanese TV drama Pure Soul (2001), na isa ring hit Korean movie na A Moment to Remember (2004) ang title, sa isang contract signing na naganap the other day.

Ito ay para sa pelikula nina Alden Richards and Bea Alonzo.

Present during the contract signing ceremony from Viva Communications Inc. were President and COO Vincent del Rosario, Viva Artists Agency President Veronique del Rosario-Corpus, and Senior Vice President for Content and Production Valerie del Rosario.

Representing GMA Network were GMA Films, Inc. President and Programming Consultant to the Chairman and CEO Atty. Annette Gozon-Valdes, First Vice President for Program Management Jose Mari Abacan, Vice President for Corporate Affairs and Communications Angel Javier Cruz, and Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara.

And for APT Entertainment Inc., in attendance naman were CEO and President Mike Tuviera, COO and CFO Jojo Oconer, and Vice President for Production Operation Camille Montano.

Kuwento ito ng young couple na masusubukan ang relasyon nang magkaroon ang misis ng early onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Maraming nakapanood sa Korean version nito ang tumatak talaga ang emotional pain na pinagdaanan ng pelikula.

“It’s my first remake, and there’s always comparison. What we wanted as actors is to do our own take on how we understood the role. Ang ganda ng material, sobra. Kung babalik na ‘yung cinemas, it’s really for it. Mas dama mo ‘yung istorya,”  banggit ni Alden.

On the other hand, Bea shared, “I’m excited na makakapagtrabaho na kami this time. We’re very happy na nag-inject sila ng Filipino culture doon sa script. We are working around the parameters of what Korea wants us to do, of course, to also maintain and respect the original form of the movie. It’s going to be a little different from the original title but we will make sure that it’s going to be a good one. It’s going to be extra challenging and also very inspiring.”

Sina Jung Woo-sung at Son Ye-jin ang lead stars sa Korean version nito.

Anyway, curious lang akong malaman kung bakit remake ang ginawa nila at hindi original story.

Sayang din kasi lalo na nga’t Alden and Bea ang bida at tatlong mga higanteng producer ng bansa ang nagsama-sama para rito.
