John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo’s “The Mistress” MovieJun 15
John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo reunites in the upcoming Star Cinema movie “The Mistress“. Back in February, we reported about an upcoming Bea Alonzo project where her opposite was the dashing Derek Ramsay. Interestingly, the central idea of that project is the same as to what “The Mistress” promises to render – a story that has a “controversial” tone in it.
Later on, we found out that due to Derek Ramsay’s decision of switching television network, Star Cinema (Abs-cbn’s movie outfit) have decided to replace Ramsay with a new leading man for Alonzo in The Mistress movie. Coincidentally, this year (2012) will mark as John Lloyd and Bea Alonzo’s 10th year anniversary as a love team so Star Cinema greenlit a new John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo movie.
It’s actually a good thing that JLC took the project even when he’s not the first choice because A.) We haven’t seen John Lloyd play the role of a cheating husband (while Derek? See: No Other Woman). , B.) It’s been 2 years since John Lloyd and Bea worked together in a film (Miss You Like Crazy, February 2010) and C.) this will be their most mature film if ever!
Apparently, the controversial ‘thing‘ they say the movie is about, is in the title itself. After “No Other Woman” and Regal Entertainment’s “My Neighbor’s Wife“, we are set again to watch a local drama film about cheating. The performances and their chemistry is the only thing that gets us excited for The Mistress. The theme though doesn’t excites us because we believe “No Other Woman” should be the last Star Cinema film to present infidelity. We mean, it’s not like we haven’t seen it on TV? It’s usually the main conflict of teleseryes.
Nevertheless, since Bea Alonzo is stepping out of her usually virginal character. The Mistress movie is directed by Olivia M. Lamasan, whose previous films were often highly acclaimed. And we’re happy because it’s only fitting that JL-Bea’s finally be directed in a film by their original mother, Olivia Lamasan (creative director of their first tv project – It Might Be You). The movie will also star Ms. Hilda Koronel and Ronaldo Valdez. The Mistress is about a doomed love affair between a worldly young lothario (JLC) and a beautifully feisty young woman (Bea Alonzo) already committed to an older man (Ronaldo Valdez).
Are you excited for The Mistress? There’s no official release date yet but there’s a fat chance that this will be moved next year, 2013, because JL and Bea will have their biggest tv comeback this year in Laurenti Dyogi’s A Beautiful Affair.
