The upcoming movie, which is a Philippine adaptation of the Korean film “A Moment to Remember,” will now reportedly be titled “Special Memory.” Richards and Alonzo signed their contracts for the film in March, though talks about the project were reported as early as December last year.
Richards said in August 2020 that it was his dream to work with Alonzo in a movie, admitting that she is “one of his idols” and that he is a fan of her pairing with actor John Lloyd Cruz.
“A Moment to Remember” tells the story of a couple who face hardships as a result of Alzheimer’s disease suffered by one of the characters. It is based on the 2001 Japanese drama “Pure Soul.”
Richards will be playing the character of Korean actor Jung Woo-sung, while Alonzo will be taking the role played by actress Son Ye-jin. /ra
