43rd Guillermo Mendoza Awards- Box Office King and Queens, Anne Curtis, Cristine Reyes, and Derek Ramsay. Most Popular Female Novelty Singer, Anne Curtis.
Two stunning female celebrities are teaming up with the hottest leading man of Philippine cinema. Anne Curtis, KC Concepcion and Derek Ramsay are collaborating for an adult drama film that’s set to be shown this year.
With the working title Nothing Compares To You, this upcoming flick tackles a love story that everyone can to. Anne Curtis explained, “Ito kasi, natatawa ako sa script. Alam mo yung mga sitwasyon, napagdadanaan ng lahat. Nakakatawa siya, pero seryoso. Basta. Feeling ko, palakpakan ang mga tao dito.”
This movie will also be the first time for Viva princesses Anne and KC to work together. Hence, both ladies are excited to start the film rolling. “Hindi ilangan, more of excited to work with her,” Anne expressed.
KC Concepcion likewise revealed that she’s enthused to get to know her fellow Viva artist. “‘Di ko pa kilala si Anne talaga personally. Pero siyempre yung nakikita ko, minamahal naman natin siya for a reason so it would be nice,” KC said.
Meanwhile, Anne Curtis reiterated that this movie is not a follow-up of No Other Woman. The Princess of All Media also explained that KC Concepcion is not a replacement to Cristine Reyes.
“Uhm, this is a totally different story. I guess it’s safe to say na iilan lang naman ang Viva leading men, so si Derek na agad ang nakuha. So yun. It’s not because it’s a follow-up after No Other Woman na kailangang magkakasama kaming tatlo. It just so happen na yung availability… and sa tingin ng Viva kung sinong nababagay sa movie. So, walang isyu na gano’n. Mero’n din namang movie na gagawin si Cristine.”
Nevertheless, Anne is very elated to share the Box-Office Queen title with fellow No Other Woman actress, Cristine Reyes. “Kasi dalawa naman talaga kaming babae do’n. I think it would be unfair if it’s just me or I got it alone… knowing na we worked as a team, so dapat lang talaga.”
With KC Concepcion as the new other woman between Derek Ramsay and Anne Curtis, do you think this movie would beat the success of No Other Woman?
There’s a new other woman in the screen life of Anne Curtis and new TV5’s newest star Kapatid, Derek Ramsay.
The reigning and defending Box Office King and Queen will follow up their blockbuster No Other Woman with another love-triangle drama produced by Viva Entertainment.
This time, the third wheel is not Cristine Reyes but one of Viva’s hottest new leading ladies, KC Concepcion.
Tentatively titled Nothing Compares To You, the movie will see Anne and KC playing twentysomething yuppies vying for the affection of Derek’s businessman character. This time, KC is the bad girl.
Contrary to rumors, KC has always been the only choice for the role. And it marks several firsts for her.
It’s her first movie in her new home studio and her first after her very public first big personal heartbreak. Appropriately it is also her first real mature role.
“I’ve been through a lot in the past year alone,” KC said during the movie’s story conference held Thursday at the Viva office. “Parang hindi na ata bagay sa akin ang mga pa-tweetums na role.”
For her part, Anne is most taken with the movie’s very contemporary look at relationships.
“For sure marami ang makaka-relate sa mga characters in the movie,” she remarked. “Matatawa ka sa situations kasi totoong totoo. Pwedeng-pwedeng mangyari sa ‘yo or sa friends mo or kakilala mo.”
The movie’s writer, award-winning scripter Mel del Rosario, says the movie touches on many areas that are very important modern life.
“It’s about friendship, it’s about family,” she noted. “It also takes a look at how modern techonology is shaping relationships these days. Like how the internet is making it easy to find relationships and, at the same time, how it makes it harder to maintain relationships.”
This is the first project together for Anne and KC, whether on the small or big screen. “More than anything we are excited to get to know each other during the shoot,” Anne said.
KC enthused: “I’m sure it’s gonna be fun.”
Nothing Compares To You starts filming in May under the direction of Nuel Naval. It is slated for release in theaters in September.
