MANILA -- "The Write Moment" starring Jerald Napoles and Valeen Montenegro will finally have its commercial run starting June 27.

The movie, which follows the story of a writer who tries to win back the heart of his former girlfriend, was an original entry in QCinema International Film Festival 2017. 

Napoles and Montenegro were all smiles on Tuesday as they shared the good news about their movie.

"Actually, kinakabahan, mixed emotions. Kinakabahan, excited, at tutok. Kasi sa online ko lang nakikita ang reactions ng tao," Napoles told ABS-CBN News.

He added: "Noong in-announce na may commercial run, nakita ko ang reviews and comments... Ang daming pelikula ngayon, ang daming romantic comedy, medyo competitive din. Kung mayroon kang 300 comments doon at kung 'yung 237 doon ay manonood sila at may naka-tag na pangalan, eh may mag-ii-spread ng news. 'Yun lang 'yung importante."

"Nae-excite ako kasi parang feeling ko maraming makaka-relate in all other levels."

Produced by IdeaFirst Company and Viva Films, "The Write Moment" is directed by Dominic Lim.
