MANILA – Luis Manzano revealed that he was supposed to join his girlfriend, Angel Locsin, and mother, Vilma Santos, for an upcoming movie under Star Cinema.

The host-actor, however, decided not to join the cast of the film for reasons he refused to disclose.

“I was supposed to be but I decided to decline due to personal reasons. Dapat kasama ako pero sabi ko, hayaan na natin ang girlfriend ko at mommy ko. Time nila 'yun,” Manzano said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.

He said he will just support the two actresses by promoting the film.

Meanwhile, Locsin said she could no longer wait to begin shooting with Santos.

“Hindi pa kami nagshu-shoot. Inaayos pa lang lahat because nagkasakit din kasi si Tita, so kailangan niya muna magpagaling talaga. Ako, I’m very excited talaga,” she said.

Saying this is a dream come true for her, Locsin added: “Kahit hindi pa kami okay ni Luis, sobrang dream ko talaga makatrabaho si Tita Vilma. Hihintayin ko talaga ito. Looking forward ako kasi it’s another Star Cinema project so another quality project na naman.”

No other details about the movie have been released.

Manzano, however, previously said that Olivia Lamasan, who helmed Santos in "In My Life" and Locsin in "In the Name of Love" might direct the movie.
