“Creative differences” was one of the two reasons cited for Matti’s exit. The other was to allow the director to pursue projects under his production company, Reality Entertainment.

Bandera reported that according to a source, some who were involved in the production had again meddled with the script. This reportedly served as the last straw for the director.

The film will continue with ABS-CBN and Star Cinema with a new director to be announced later.  /ra
