It was back in 2007 when she last starred in a Star Cinema film.
And now Judy Ann Santos is back, this time teaming up with Angelica Panganiban for a new comedy flick with the ABS-CBN film outfit.
A co-production between Star Cinema, Idea First Company, and Quantum Films, “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes” will be helmed by “Die Beautiful” director Jun Robles Lana.
In an interview with reporters on Wednesday, the “Bet on Your Baby” host refused to give details about the project but described it as a departure from her previous works, which usually rely on heavy drama for impact.
“It’s the perfect material na hindi ine-expect ng mga tao,” she teased. “Kasi kapag family drama, alam na agad. Kapag rom-com, alam na agad kasi may formula na.”
She added that this new comedy will be less reliant on slapstick jokes, saying that it is more akin to a sitcom, and that it will not be just another mistress story, contrary to what the title may suggest.
“Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes” will be the first movie to pair her with Panganiban, whom she last worked with in the 2001 soap opera, “Sa Puso Ko Iingatan Ka.”
Santos said she is looking forward to her reunion with Panganiban, explaining: “Gusto kong ma-experience iyong total package niya bilang artista na nakita ko for the past years.”
In “Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes,” Santos will play a career-driven fashionista who will stumble upon Panganiban’s character, a gentle, soft-spoken socialite who shares her surname.
Filming for the movie will start soon but a release date was not revealed.
