AT the presscon of “Loving You,” producer Mother Lily Monteverde says she’s glad the pairing of John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo in “Very Special Love” did well at the tills. Since Star Cinema borrowed Richard Gutierrez from GMA-7 to be paired with KC Concepcion in “For the First Time”, she expressed the idea of borrowing John Lloyd and pairing him with GMA’s hottest female star, Marian Rivera.
But we heard even a top ABS exec is already toying with this concept. In which case, they’ll have to deal with Mother Lily as Marian has a contract with Regal. In fact, she’s supposed to do “Desperadas 2” for them as a Metro filmfest entry. Mother Lily might then agree to make the John Lloyd-Marian movie a Regal-Star co-production, just like “Very Special Love” which is a Star-Viva co-prod venture.
In that case, the Regal producer might also be persuaded not to run after Angel Locsin anymore, who she insists is still legally tied up with them. Angel is supposed to start shooting her movie with Piolo Pascual soon and Mother Lily has earlier threatened to sue her. But with her willing to work with Star for the John Lloyd-Marian pairing, she may now junk the idea of pursuing Angel.
