MANILA (Mabuhay) — Actress Bea Alonzo and leading man John Lloyd Cruz both remained cautious about making a potential sequel to the widely-beloved romantic film “One More Chance.”

The two confirmed that they will be working on a new movie together with director Cathy Garcia-Molina but stopped short of saying if it will be connected in any way to the 2007 box-office hit.

“Is this a part two, or a sequel, or another story? Maski kami ni Bea, wala pa kaming alam,” Cruz told reporters.

Nevertheless, he was asked if he would be open to reprising his role as Popoy opposite Alonzo as Basha.

To which he replied: “Hindi siya ganun kadali. Ang sabi ko lang sa kanya [Garcia-Molina], kung makakapagtayo ng magandang kuwento at konektado pa rin sa totoong kuwento ni Popoy at ni Basha, eh bakit hindi?”

“Pero kung pipilitin lang natin, siguro para sa akin, pangit kasi pag pinipilit. Lahat ng bagay na pinipilit, pumapangit,” Cruz added.

For her part, Alonzo said that she feels thrilled that Filipinos are still demanding for another chapter of the love story given the fact that it came out more than eight years ago.

“Siyempre nakaka-excite na may clamor, na gusto ng mga tao,” she said. “Pero kahit ako mas nangingibabaw ‘yung kaba kung kaya ba naming gawin.” (MNS)
