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.

Alden Richards, named the “Sexiest Man in the Philippines” for two straight years now, just announced that he is hoping to finally have a girlfriend this year.

The Kapuso star made this revelation at the media announcement of his new endorsement deal with the Lucio Tan Group for Embassy Whisky.

“I’m giving it time this year. Ayan ang sigurado!” Alden said when pressed if he is actively seeking a real-life romantic relationship.  

He noted that there is a big change that his goal will come true since it’s still the start of the year. ”Siyempre hahanap muna. January pa lang e. Ngayon ito na ‘yung time. Darating naman ‘yon. Kasi baka ‘pag ipilit natin, baka para tayong kumain ng kanin na mainit na ‘pag napaso, kasi ayoko namang maging gano’n ‘yung relationship ko.”

Already, Alden was rumored to have been wooing former Miss Universe Catriona Gray. But he denied it, saying he has not even personally met Catriona, who is now a contract star of ABS-CBN. Alden, of course, is a Kapuso talent, with his current primetime project in GMA Network being the series “The Gift”. He is also one of the hosts of “Eat Bulaga”.

Alden, aside from being one of the most desired bachelors in the country, has been voted the “Sexiest Man in the Philippines” for two consecutive years (2018 and 2019).

In the 2019 poll of the entertainment blog Starmometer, Alden received 56.9% of the votes.

He bested the likes of Daniel Padilla, Enrique Gil, Dingdong Dantes and James Reid.

Starmometer’s criteria for the poll are 30% charm, 40% physique and 30% popularity index. 

Alden and his team are now abroad for another endorsement. Photos of him on a plane wearing a face mask are all over the social media. This had his fans worried, as the world is now facing the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) that originated from Wuhan, China.

For instance, @Mhaicute tweeted:

Alden, in an interview with Boy Abunda last year, revealed that he last had a romantic relationship way back in college.

Daniel is also set to star in a movie to be produced by ABS-CBN titled “Kun Maupay Man It Panahon” with veteran actress and producer Charo Santos, who is also the CEO of the network.  ABS-CBN released its plans for 2020 amid uncertainty over the renewal of its congressional franchise, which is due to expire at the end of March.

President Duterte, who is still fuming mad over the decision of ABS-CBN not to air his campaign ads in the 2016 elections, is vocal in saying that he would do everything in his power to block the passage of the network’s franchise renewal. Several bills have been filed in Congress seeking the franchise’s extension for another 25 years, but none of them has moved thus far.

ABS-CBN PR released videos and photos of Kathryn and Daniel during the ceremonies for the signing of their respective three-year contract extensions with the network. This caused the hashtag #KathNiel2020 to trend on Twitter.
