Angelica Panganiban, Gerald Anderson co-star for first time in sexy-drama movie

Prized ABS-CBN talents Angelica Panganiban and Gerald Anderson will co-star for the first time in a drama film that promises an "adult and restrained" take on romance on the big screen.

The untitled project, helmed by director Ruel Bayani ("No Other Woman," "One More Try"), was announced Friday, January 17, by producer Star Cinema in a story conference attended by both lead stars.

No other cast members have been announced for the film, which is slated for release within the year. The first day of filming, according to Bayani, will start on Monday.

"It's a departure from my past two successful movies," the director told, when asked to explain what he referred to as a "quiet" treatment to this upcoming film.

Bayani's last two directorial outings on the big screen were "No Other Woman" in 2011 and "One More Try" in 2012, both acclaimed films he described as "high-strung" and having "big, explosive melodrama."

"Napakahirap na itimpla no'n... [To me, this is a challenge to make a film that is] sexy, mature, quiet, and restrained. Iba 'yung gano'n, eh. Pag hinuhuli mo 'yung porma, hindi mo agad mapi-pinpoint, at 'yun ang challenge para sa'kin doon."

While Bayani refused to discuss the story, as well as the characters portrayed by Panganiban and Anderson, he offered that the movie will feature "a story of great love."

Asked if the film will show intimate scenes, Bayani said, "Yes, because when you talk about passion, when you talk about mature love, hindi naman maiiwasan 'yon."
