MANILA -- It may not happen this year, but veteran actor Aga Muhlach assured his fans that his highly anticipated reunion movie with Lea Salonga will push through. 

Earlier this year, many were disappointed when Salonga announced that her third movie project with Muhlach won't be hitting cinemas anytime soon. It follows the success of their first two movies, "Sana Maulit Muli" and "Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal." 

Speaking to bloggers on Thursday, Muhlach said he and Salonga "owe it to the public" to make one "last" film together. 

"Lea and I will make it happen, but we just don't know when," he said. 

Salonga is currently in New York for the revival of "Once On This Island" on Broadway. Muhlach said she will be back in the country next June. 

"Ilang years na naming pina-plano 'yan, at hindi natutuloy. Pero, let's see. If it's gonna happen, it's gonna happen," he said. 

At the same bloggers' conference, Muhlach was asked to name three leading ladies he'd like to work with soon. It was no surprise that Salonga tops his list. 

Meanwhile, after five years, Muhlach is making his movie comeback in Star Cinema's "Seven Sundays," which opens in cinemas on October 11. 

In the ensemble family drama, Muhlach plays the eldest son of Ronaldo Valdez. Playing his siblings are Dingdong Dantes, Cristine Reyes and Enrique Gil.

Directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, "Seven Sundays" also stars Donita Rose, Ketchup Eusebio, and Kean Cipriano, among others.
