Last August, Richards said that it was his dream to work with Alonzo in a movie, admitting that he is a fan of her pairing with John Lloyd Cruz. Meanwhile, Alonzo is also looking forward to work with the Kapuso actor.
“Finally doing a movie with this one! I am so excited!” Alonzo said in an Instagram post on March 2. She added that there is “no better way” to celebrate her 20 years in show business than working in a movie.
