On Star Cinema’s 19th anniversary presentation, together with Cinemedia—a new loveteam is being introduced via its latest romantic flick offering titled ‘Born to Love You’. The most sought-after female singer Angeline Quinto is paired with the country’s hottest primetime actor Coco Martin as they graced its press launch on May 16 at Dolphy Theater in ABS-CBN compound.
The production promises a lot of ‘firsts’. It is Quinto’s first-ever starring role, and dubbed as her biggest break to date. Other hand, the flick is the fulfillment of Martin’s long-time dream of being able to do a movie that will make people, lovers in particular fall in love, even the more. Lastly, it is one of ABS-CBN’s premier teleserye directors—Jerome Chavez Pobocan’s first directorial film assignment, too.
Malou N. Santos, Star Cinema’s supervising producer has this something to say about their latest project, “It’s part of the company’s evolution.
“We see to it that we meet the public’s expectations by introducing something new while giving them the same of what they have seen and crave for more it.”
Quinto is excited about this project, not just because it’s the biggest project ever entrusted to her, but the fact that Coco Martin is her leading man. Martin, being the more experienced actor and a successful indie film artist who has made a remarkable crossover to the mainstream films and other projects—he serves as the mentor-partner of Quinto.
Coco assumes the role of Rex, a photographer who has been in search for meaning in life and in his photographs. Angeline is Joey, a tourist guide who uses and treats her profession as an opportunity to find her long-lost father whom she has neither seen nor have known, and is said to be in Korea. Will the encounter help them both in complementing each other’s dreams of having a complete and meaningful journey in life?
Quinto and Martin are joined by Albert Martinez, Eula Valdez, Tonton Gutierrez, Al Tantay, and Malou de Guzman in the cast.
