Liza Soberano and Enrique were supposed to do the movie that Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards did
Kathryn and Alden, who came from rival networks ABS-CBN and GMA, made a record-breaking film. It was directed by Cathy Garcia Molina and earned P880 million worldwide.
With this earning, it was hailed as the highest-grossing Filipino film in 2019. In a recent Toni Talks vlog of actress-TV host Toni Gonzaga, her guest director-writer Olivia Lamasan revealed that Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil were supposed to be the stars of Hello, Love, Goodbye.
“Originally LizQuen ‘yan eh (Originally it was supposed to star LizQuen). LizQuen, then it became Kathryn-DJ, and then Kathryn-Alden,” the director said.
Direk Olive was one of the producers of the movie. She shared that she and the creative team had a meeting and they were conceptualizing a new OFW (overseas Filipino worker) film like the hit Star Cinema movies Milan and Anak.
When she was about to stand up, the idea suddenly burst out, and then, the story was created. From being a LizQuen movie, it was presented to be KathNiel movie (Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla). Later on, Alden Richards became the leading man of Kathryn in Hello, Love, Goodbye. Direk Olive revealed that Liza could not do the movie at that time because he was already doing the Darna project.
“Liza was doing Darna at the time so I gathered the creatives, ‘Sige isip-isip tayo. Patayo na ako and biglang: What’s our next ‘Milan’? What’s our next ‘Anak’? What’s our next OFW story?” Olivia Lamasan shared.
