Alden-Maine Movie Shot In Italy To Finish Shooting By End Of May, Whereas Kathniel Movie To Be Shot In Spain Has Yet To Start

THIS EARLY, there are those who say that the movie of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza, tentatively titled “Imagine Me and You” (the first line from the Beatle song, “Imagine”) and that of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla (no title yet) will be pitted against each other in July. Honestly, this is quite a premature conclusion.

The AlDub movie is now already shooting in Italy while that of KathNiel which will be filmed on location in Barcelona, Spain has yet to start shooting. And the KathNiel movie will be directed by Olivia ‘Inang’ Lamasan, who takes her sweet sweet time in making a movie, so it would not be quite possible for it to be completed by July, since it’s now the middle of May and they haven’t even began principal photography.

AlDub fans have been missing them in the Kalyeserye of “Eat Bulaga” so last weekend, Alden and Maine made a surprise appearance in the show via remote telecast from their set in Lake Como in Italy. They even joined the Knock Knock portion in Bulagaan 2016. They talked about the beautiful locations where they’re shooting the movie and added that it’s still very cold there. Joining them this week in the movie’s cast is Jasmine Curtis Smith. We just hope AlDub fans won’t bash her just because of her inclusion in the film.

The cast and crew will be shooting in Lake Como until May 18. Then they will move to Verona (the hometown of Shakespeare’s most famous young lovers, Romeo and Juliet) then to Rome. They will be coming back to Manila on May 28 and, by that time, they will shoot here for only six shooting days more and the movie will be complete. They can devote most of June to the film’s post production, enough time for them to be able to open in theaters in July, in time for the first anniversary of the AlDub love team that started by accident in “Eat Bulaga” in July of last year.
