Julie Anne San Jose & Rumored BF Benjamin Alves Paired In TV Remake Of Ishmael Bernal's 'Pinulot Ka Lang Sa Lupa'

JULIE ANNE SAN JOSE finally has a new soap, “Pinulot Ka Lang sa Lupa”, after her last outing as a drama actress in “Buena Familia” which ended in March. This is a remake of an old Regal movie directed by the late Ishmael Bernal in 1987. The new director is Gina Alajar and Julie Anne will reprise Angeli, the role originally played by Maricel Soriano. She’ll be paired with Benjamin Alves as Ephraim, originally played by Gabby Concepcion.

This is the first show together of Julie Anne and Benjamin ever since it was reported that they are romantically involved after they were paired in the music video of Julie Anne’s current hit song from her album. For sure, the fans of their budding love team will be rejoicing now that they can both be seen together onscreen in a regular show.

Also in the cast of the old movie was Lorna Tolentino as Santina. Her role will now be played by LJ Reyes (her first project after winning two best actress awards for “Anino sa Likod ng Buwan”). Supporting Julie Anne, Benjamin and LJ in the TV remake are Jean Garcia, Victor Neri, Martin del Rosario, Koreen Medina and newcomer Lharby Policarpio.

Maybe you’d ask: who is Lharby? He is the co-star of JC Santos in “Esprit de Corp” where they had a controversial nude scene. JC is now a promising star at ABS-CBN because of his inclusion in the cast of “Till I Met You”. Let’s see if Lharby would be able to follow in his footsteps now that he’s with GMA-7.
