MANILA, Philippines - Young star Erich Gonzales landed on the top trending local topics of microblogging site Twitter on Monday after rumors circulated that she will be doing a film with Thai actor Mario Maurer.
The hashtag #ErichGonzales made it to the 8th spot on Twitter's list of top trending topics in the Philippines on Monday morning while Star Cinema, ABS-CBN's movie outfit, landed in 6th place.
Several netizens shared their excitement over the rumored project.
"Erich Gonzales and Mario Maurer will be having a movie together under Star Cinema!! o.O lucky Girl.. im jealous!! :P," Genesis Ching tweeted.
"Omegosh! Is that true that Erich Gonzales and @ohohmario will pair under Star Cinema?" KC Labios said.
For her part, Jennie Tagubase said, "Erich Gonzales and Mario Maurer will be having a film under Star Cinema! :D im not a fan of Erich but im so excited na :)."
Maurer tweeted last July 8 that he will visit Manila soon. He did not say anything about a new movie project with Gonzales.
'See you soon Philippines,' he wrote.
But Joyce Ramirez of Publicity Asia, the group that will bring Maurer to the Philippines, said they still need to iron things out with Star Cinema.
"STAR CINEMA and I still need to iron out a lot of details including the SCRIPT in the meantime follow @PENSHOPPE for Meet & Greet details!," Ramirez tweeted.
She added, "THE SELECTION of the ACTRESS position will only be revealed after Mario Maurer reviews the SCRIPT - so nothing is FINAL yet! Thank you."
Meanwhile, Ramirez said she will be flying to Thailand next week to introduce Star Cinema to Maurer.
