Director Cathy Molina Compares John Lloyd Cruz & Bea Alonzo In 'One More Chance' 8 Years Ago To 'Second Chance' Today

DIRECTOR CATHY GARCIA MOLINA’s “One More Chance” was a big hit and there’s a good chance the sequel, “A Second Chance”, will also be a blockbuster. Will there be “A Third Chance” then?  “Naku, hindi na muna,” she says. “Sa lahat ng pelikulang ginawa ko, pinakamahirap itong ‘Second Chance’. We took our chance to tell you a story na different doon sa una, which was made eight years ago, at mahirap siyang buuin. Basta ibang-iba ito sa una. The biggest challenge is yung gap ng eight years. We have to find muna kung ano ang nagaganap ngayon sa characters nilang sina Popoy and Basha. Nasaktan nga ako while doing this movie kasi akala ni Bea Alonzo, ilo-launch ko siya as a bold star.”

Why? Did Bea do some sexy scenes in the movie? “E, siempre, mag-asawa na rito sina Popoy at Basha kaya ginagawa nila yung mga normal na bagay na ginagawa ng mag-asawa. Like being naked in front of each other. Sabi ni Bea, sagad na raw yung pinagawa ko sa kanya. Pero parte talaga ng story, e.”

So what’s the difference between Bea and John Lloyd in ‘One More Chance’ and ‘Second Chance’? “Eight years ago, ang tataba nila! Ha ha ha! But in terms of acting, they’re so different now. Mas intense sila, nag-improve talaga. They take on their roles more seriously para maisabuhay ng tama ang characters nila. Now, ni hindi ko na sila mino-motivate and I guess it comes with maturity and experience. They’ve also become better persons.”

Does she really believe in giving second chances? “Yes, kasi lahat naman, nagkakamali dahil mga tao lang tayo. So when it comes to relationships, everyone deserves a second chance, basta nandun pa rin ang pagmamahal mo.”

“A Second Chance” opens in theatres this Wednesday, November 25.
