Erich Gonzales and Coco Martin in Juan Dela Cruz.
ABS-CBN stars Erich Gonzales and Coco Martin are Topbill in the upcoming Kapamilya teleserye Juan Dela Cruz. According to several sources, Juan Dela Cruz is a historical epic and will be some sort of a mini-series.
From the script first written for a movie, the said teleserye will banner the ABS-CBN offerings during the first quarter of 2013. Initially, Juan Dela Cruz is submitted for MMFF 2012 but it was rejected along with 6 other scripts.
If Juan Dela Cruz was called for as a movie, it is supposed to be directed by Richard Somes. The teleserye version, however, will be helmed by Malu Sevilla. Deo Endrinal’s CineMedia will produce the show.
Aside from the two, the said teleserye will also star Zsa Zsa Padilla, Mylene Dizon and Ms. Gina Pareño. Contrary to early reports, Angel Locsin will not be Coco’s leading lady in the project as the actress is said to be given another teleserye project for 2013.
Aside from Juan Dela Cruz, Coco Martin is also doing a movie with Walang Hanggan leading lady Julia Montes, portions of which were shot in Amsterdam. The said project was announced during the show’s thanksgiving concert at the Araneta Coliseum.
