MANILA, Philippines -- After their successful reunion in the primetime series "Walang Hanggan," Richard Gomez and Dawn Zulueta are set to do at least two new projects together, including a soap opera, the actress confirmed early this week.

"We're about to sign up with Star Cinema, so we'll most likely have a movie with them this year," the 44-year-old actress told reporters on Sunday.
"Then there is another movie that we're working on, which will be coming out for release naman next year," she added.
Zulueta expressed excitement about another project, a TV series, where she will also co-star with Gomez, her former boyfriend and frequent on-screen leading man in the '90s.
"It seems like it's going to be a very busy year. Pagkatapos ko pala itong ma-wrap up, 'yung 'Bukas Nalang Kita Mamahalin,' I'm going jump right into another soap which includes Richard also. So para kaming magka-klase. Feeling ko everyday tayo magkikita ngayon," she said.
"Bukas Nalang Kita Mamahalin" is an earlier announced soap opera where Zulueta will co-star with actor Gerald Anderson and actress Cristine Reyes.
The scheduled telecast for the drama series has yet to be announced.
Asked how she feels about her tandem with Gomez being dubbed the "All-Time Favorite Love Team," Zulueta said, "Parang 'di kami makapaniwala, kasi sabi ko nga, napaka-gurangers na natin, 'no."
The two were recently awarded the "All Time Favorite Love Team on Movies and TV" at the 44th Box-Office Entertainment Awards, which is organized by the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation, Inc.
"Pero 'yung titulo mismo na 'All-Time Favorite Love Team,' it's such a big, all-encompassing title and it's really, ano, nakaka-proud. Talagang maraming salamat sa lahat ng bumubuo ng Guillermo Mendoza foundation," she said.
