MANILA - Actress-host Alex Gonzaga's book "Dear Alex, Break na kami, Paano?! Love, Catherine" will soon be turned into a movie.

Gonzaga on Thursday signed a contract with Star Cinema for the book's movie adaptation.

Gonzaga said she never thought her book about a break up will become a hit. The book is now on its seventh printing.

"Ang gusto ko lang ay tumulong gamit ang libro ko. Magkaroon ng pagbabago sa kahit sino, bagong perspective lang tungkol sa pagmamahal. Yung mga mistakes ko ay maging lessons sa iba para hindi na siya mistake kasi may natulungan ako. Naging blessing na siya sa iba," Gonzaga said.

"Natutuwa ako (na gagawin na siyang movie) kasi sabi ko nga sa editors namin na ang aim ko lang ay may isang babae na umiyak sa akin (at magsabi na) 'grabe na touched ako sa libro mo.' Yes, I wanna be a beacon of hope that's it," she added.

The movie adaptation will be written by Antoinette Jadaone, who is behind other films "Beauty in a Bottle”, “Relaks, It’s Just Pag-Ibig” and “That Thing Called Tadhana”.

Asked if she will be involved in the making of the movie, Gonzaga said: "Yun ang di namin alam. Di pa sure pero feeling ko ang kailangan dito ay yung mga natutunan, mas importante 'yon, yung mga advice na dapat ginagawa ng babae, yun ang feeling ko na di dapat mawala sa movie."

"Natuuwa ako the main mission is to help young girls, heartbroken girls to learn from someone's mistakes and to remind us that may kasama ka sa journey mong ito. Hindi lang si Lord at milyon pang babaeng heartbroken. Maraming salamat at sana ay suportahan niyo ang pelikula. Yung di mahilig magbasa suportahan niyo na lang yung pelikula kahit ako di din mahilig magbasa," she added.

Gonzaga said if ever she would like actors Luis Manzano, John Lloyd Cruz and Piolo Pascual to be part of the movie.
