MANILA — A film starring former couple John Lloyd Cruz and Shaina Magdayao was among the titles unveiled by ABS-CBN on Monday for release this year.
“Servando Magdamag” will mark Cruz’s film comeback after his two-year hiatus, and his first project with Magdayao since their 2012 split.
In ABS-CBN’s “Sama-Sama Tayo sa 2020” trailer, which enumerates its entertainment lineup across platforms, separate scenes of Magdayao and Cruz in “Servando Magdamag” were shown.
“Servando Magdamag” is based on the short story by acclaimed writer Ricky Lee, who previously said that its film adaptation would be helmed by Lav Diaz.
Diaz, a frequent collaborator of Magdayao and Cruz in separate projects, has not yet been announced as the director of ABS-CBN Films’ “Servando Magdamag.”
