After his contract signing with Viva, Lim said he considers it a privilege to be able to work with Geronimo.

“Nakakatuwa na I was given an opportunity to work with Sarah and James in their upcoming movie. I’m very excited kasi even before, a couple of years back, kapag tinatanong ako, ‘Sino bang gusto mong makapareha?’ I mean, to be able to work with Sarah is already a very huge blessing,” he said.

While they are used to greeting each other every time they cross paths along the hallways of ABS-CBN, Lim said it is a different experience to work with Geronimo and Reid.

“Miss Granny” is directed by Joyce Bernal.

In the original South Korean movie, a woman in her 70s finds herself in the body of her 20-year-old self (played by Shim Eun-Kyun).
