MANILA – Angel Locsin, Sam Milby and Zanjoe Marudo cannot wait for their supporters to finally see their latest movie, “The Third Party.”

While they are still working on the film, the three assured moviegoers that they will surely be entertained because of the unusual story.

“Modern take siya sa isang love story. Hindi siya 'yung typical love story na nakikita natin,” Locsin said.

“Ang Star Cinema, hindi naman nagse-settle na wala masyadong conflict or walang sangay-sangay 'yung kuwento. Ang interesting sa kuwentong ito, hindi lang niya tina-tackle 'yung first love mo, kung anong feeling kapag nagkaroon ka ng first love, kapag naghiwalay kayo ng first love mo, at ano yung feeling kapag nakita mo na masaya na iba na 'yung kapiling ng first love mo at 'yung kapiling niya ay bro din,” she explained.

In the film, Locsin and Milby play exes who have managed to keep their friendship intact even after they broke up. But later on, Milby’s character finds a new love in Marudo’s character.

“She’s one person na naiintindihan niya ako," Milby said of Locsin's character. "There’s a situation that arises that we kind of all need each other and that’s why we need to co-exist and be together.”

But more than the gay plot, Marudo said “The Third Party” also delves into friendship and how a person gets to know more about himself.

“It’s more about relationships as friends and as mature na mga tao, yung mga pagdadaanan nila sa mga sarili nila. 'Yung tatlong tao na nagsama-sama na may kailangang i-solve pa sa buhay nila,” he said.

There are no details as yet as to when the Star Cinema film will open in theaters.
