Saturday, March 20, 2010
THE long wait is over. Sam Milby and Anne Curtis will grace the big screen this summer on "Babe, I Love You."
This summer offering of Star Cinema and Viva Films will be the first movie together of Sam and Anne after their television role in "Dyosa" and "Maging Sino Ka Man."
"We are really excited to finally work together and see ourselves in the big screen," Anne said.
On Sam's part, he said the fans were eagerly waiting for their first movie and there were a lot of requests for the two of them.
"For the longest time lagi kaming kinakausap ng fans na sana magkaroon kami ng pelikulang dalawa," he said.
The last time the two worked together was in the fantaserye "Dyosa", which aired on the primetime viewing early last year.
"Babe, I Love You" will be a story about two individuals who have never thought that love can blossom right at the middle of two opposite worlds.
According to Sam and Anne, the story is too close to home because in real life, they really had love and hate relationship.
She added that sometimes, when shooting some scenes of the film, they are not in peaceful relationship with each other but at the end of the day, they were able to patch things up.
The movie is directed by certified Star Cinema baby director Mae Cruz.
According to Mae, it's an additional bonus on her part to direct Sam and Anne for this upcoming movie because she's very at ease with them.
She said the three of them had a very good working relationship way back from "Maging Sino Ka Man," a now defunct primetime hit soap opera that launched the careers of the two stars.
"It's such a blessing that my first full length is with Anne and Sam was "Maging Sino Ka Man" I worked closely with them, from book 1 to 2 and we established a relationship," she said.
Mae added that Sam and Anne were very professional and really taking their craft seriously.
To complete the "Babe, I Love You" cast are: Nikki Valdez, Guji Lorenzana, Tetchie Agbayani, AJ Perez, Megan Young, Kitkat Nikki Bacolod, Joem Bascon, Nicole Uysieuseng, Roden Araneta and Ms. Laurice Guillen.
"Babe, I Love You" will open in more than 100 theaters nationwide starting April 3. (Glaiza Jarloc/Sunnex)
