Piolo and Toni reunited on big screen

Heartthrob Piolo Pascual stars in Star Cinema’s romantic drama “Starting Over Again,” opposite Toni Gonzaga and directed by Olivia Lamasan.

Toni’s last movie was the box-office hit “Four Sisters and A Wedding,” while Piolo’s last film was the “On the Job,” together with Gerald Anderson. Piolo said his movie with Toni is another opportunity for him to learn from veteran director Ms. Olivia Lamasan.

The movie is also a reunion of sorts for Piolo and Toni. They were first paired 13 years ago in a popular softdrink commercial which had Toni, then an unknown, playing a starstruck student screaming, “I love you Piolo!”

In the past, Piolo and Toni were romantically linked to each other. Piolo recalled that they dated when Toni just transferred to ABS-CBN from GMA 7. Toni is now happily in a relationship, while Piolo seemingly remains elusive although the actor is being linked to Shaina Magdayao.

“Starting Over Again,” also stars Iza Calzado, Joross Gamboa, Bryan Santos, Beauty Gonzales, Cai Cortez and Edgar Allan Guzman. The movie is part of Star Cinema’s 20th-anniversary offerings.

The movie opens in cinemas nationwide on Feb. 12, 2014.
