Bea Alonzo, Alden Richards to start filming first movie together this month

Bea Alonzo and Alden Richards are finally set to start filming for their first movie together!

The two will star on the Philippine version of the Japanese series "Pure Soul," which was also remade into the Korean movie "A Moment To Remember."

In an interview with GMA Entertainment, Viva Entertainment executive Vincent Del Rosario said filming will go as planned this November after waiting for health restrictions to ease.

"Naghintay talaga ng timing para magawa nang maayos kasi ayaw natin naman na hindi mabigyan ng justice 'yung original," he said, adding that they wanted to use locations wisely amid the pandemic.

["We waited for the right timing to do it properly because we want to give justice to the original."]

In the movie, which is now titled "Special Memory," Alden and Bea will portray a married couple facing the struggles of early onset Alzheimer's disease.

The project will be produced by three of the country's biggest movie outfits: GMA Pictures, Viva Films, and APT Entertainment. Directed by Nuel Naval and written by Mel Del Rosario, the film will be released in 2022.

Previously, Alden assured fans that his movie with Bea is still very much a go, and expressed his excitement to work with the actress.
