Ace Director Dan Villegas Megs Bea-Gerald In New Movie & Gerald-Yen In New Soap, Hope He Won't Have A Burnout

DAN VILLEGAS is really the director of the moment, being so active in both the big and small screen. He’s assigned to direct the first movie together, still untitled, of Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson. Considering his track record in coming up with highly entertaining and well crafted rom-coms, we have no doubt that the Bea-Gerald movie will be something that’s worth waiting for.

And this early, its drumbeaters are harping on the possibility of Bea and Gerald rekindling their short-lived romance that started when they did a show in London some years ago. This is not impossible since both of them are currently loveless after Bea broke up with Zanjoe Marudo and Gerald, with Maja Salvador.

Going back to Direk Dan, on the small screen, he will helm a new teleserye, “Because You Love Me”, that also stars Gerald Anderson, along with Jake Cuenca and newcomer Yen Santos who gets her biggest break here after starring in “All of Me” with Albert Martinez. And not only that, he is also the supervising producer of the new Quantum Films movie, “My Candidate”, starring Derek Ramsay, Iza Calzado and Shaina Magdayao, directed by Quark Henares.

Well, we know there’s a saying that you should strike while the iron is hot, but here’s hoping Direk Dan is not spreading himself too thin so he won’t quickly suffer from burnout, like what happened to his girlfriend, Antoinette Jadaone. She did equally successful films like “That Thing Called Tadhana” and “You’re My Boss”, along with the hit JaDine teleserye, “On the Wings of Love”, then suddenly had a meltdown in the Metro filfmest entry, “All You Need is Pag-ibig”.
