LOOK: Sharon Cuneta, Richard Gomez reunite for new movie after 15 years
If Megastar Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion’s reunion in a commercial months ago sent the most fervent of fans into a frenzy, then what can Sharonians say now that their idol is paired with ex-flame Richard Gomez?
Despite the clamor for another Sharon-Gabby movie, the plan fell flat as a heartbroken Cuneta, last March, shared to her fans that they may never be another Sharon-Gabby movie again.
But while a movie failed to happen with her ex-husband, it seems things have looked up for the better when Cuneta hinted at a reunion movie with Gomez last July. Today, many pictures of Cuneta with Gomez can be seen in her Instagram account, finally showing her fans that an upcoming movie with Gomez is locked in.
It’s out with ShaGab and in with ShaGom, it seems, as Cuneta shared a picture of her on Instagram with leading man Gomez on Aug. 12.
“Thank you everyone for your show of love and support THIS EARLY for our reunion movie on the 30th Anniversary of our love team,” wrote Cuneta. “We love you!”
The picture she shared showed her and Gomez smiling for a picture during their recent story con at Star Cinema. The movie, “Three Words to Forever” will be directed by no other than director Cathy Garcia-Molina, known for her oeuvre that includes “One More Chance” and “Miss You Like Crazy” that starred John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo.
This time, joining Gomez and Cuneta is Kathryn Bernardo, who’s also worked with Garcia-Molina in the past for “She’s Dating the Gangster”.
Glaringly absent, however, is her ka-love team and rumored boyfriend Daniel Padilla.
In a later post made the same day, Cuneta posted a picture of her and Gomez in each other’s arms.
“WE’RE BAAAACK!!!!” she gushed. “Filming VERY soon. Showing November 2018.”
Cuneta and Gomez dated back in the 90s after her marriage to Concepcion ended. Their last movie together, “Walang Kapalit” under director Joel Lamangan, hit the big screen in 2003, making it 15 long years since the two joined forces for a movie. NVG
