Aga Muhlach and Angel Locsin, movie update
Finally, Star Cinema has found an ideal concept for a movie co-starring together for the first time Aga Muhlach and Angel Locsin.
The concept is from the brilliant mind of ABS-CBN unit head Enrico Santos, and will have noted and award-winning Director Olive Lamasan.
Direk Olive’s last directorial job was the critically acclaimed Governor Vilma Santos-Luis Manzano-John Lloyd Cruz starrer, In My Life.
While the yet untitled flick is Angel’s first time na makatrabaho si Direk Olive, it’s the second naman on the part ni Aga. They have worked together in the movie, now considered a classic Sana Maulit Muli, which also starred Lea Salonga.
Sana Maulit was filmed in its entirety in San Francisco, California.
“I have always hoped na makatrabahong muli si Direk Olive,” ani Aga. “She is one of the best directors I have worked with.
“In the case of Angel, I heard she is an angel to work with. I can hardly wait to start shooting for the movie.”

Meantime, though, Aga has yet to finish shooting for his reunion movie with Regine Velasquez, Viva Films tentatively entitled Umboy and Berns directed by Joyce Bernal.
The film is earmarked for a January release.
What would aga think is the highlight of the movie? He was asked.
“Well, siguro, ’yung kissing scene namin,” he replied smiling. “According to Regine kasi, iba siya kung humalik ngayon, compared to when we did out two previous movies.
“Kasi naman noon,” Regine, who overheard Aga’s answer, cut in. “Naïve pa ako sa kissing and love scene. Unlike ngayon, when masasabing seasoned na ako. And I don’t have to tell everybody why.”
In any case, Aga and Regine’s last two films together, Dahil May Isang Ikaw and Ikaw Lang which were both blockbusters, also had Joyce Bernal for director and produced din by Viva Films.
