MANILA -- Claudine Barretto is excited to begin shooting her new movie with Piolo Pascual.
Speaking with Push Friday, the actress revealed that she and Pascual, along with the film's director, Cathy Garcia-Molina, are set to fly to either the Czech Republic or France in a couple of weeks.
"I started packing already so 'yun," shared Barretto, who also said that she is looking forward to working again with Pascual as she considers him one of her "best best friends in showbiz."
She remains unsure about when exactly they will leave, only saying that they could fly out by the end of September or early October.
The movie is currently untitled, but it was already clarified that it will not be a sequel to "Milan," Barretto's last movie with Pascual that became a hit more than 15 years ago.
Barretto also described it as a "fulfilled promise" by Garcia-Molina, whom she recalled worked as an assistant director in many of her projects.
"I remember when we were in Milan I told her, 'Direk ha don’t forget kapag magdi-direk ka, kami ni Piolo,’ ganyan and she stayed true sa promise niya," she said.
"I would love to work with her because I know how she is sa set bilang assistant director and bilang director."
