After being away from the theaters for over a year, love team KathNiel (Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla) will be starring in a movie dubbed by ABS-CBN Films as one of its biggest projects for the year.
The film, titled “After Forever”, will be the first of the real-life couple after the highly successful “The Hows of Us”, which became the highest-grossing Filipino flick of all time in 2018.
It was, however, dislodged by “Hello, Love, Goodbye” in 2019 featuring Kathryn and Kapuso star Alden Richards.
Cathy Garcia-Molina, the director of “Hello, Love, Goodbye”, will be directing “After Forever”, according to ABS-CBN. The script was written by Carmi Raymundo.
The new KathNiel film was announced by the Kapamilya network on Monday (February 10).
While “Hello, Love, Goodbye” was shot in Hong Kong, “After Forever” will be filmed in San Francisco, California. It is targeted to hit the cinemas by the middle of the year.
“The Hows of Us” ended its 50-day international cinema run with a gross revenue of P810 million, which catapulted it to the top of the Philippine highest grossing movie of all time.
A year later, however, “Hello, Love, Goodbye” grossed about a billion pesos.
