All the deets on the Maja-Zanjoe film 'To Love Some Buddy'

"Finally, nagkatagpo rin kami ni Z!"

That was Maja Salvador's initial reaction earlier, February 13, at the story conference of her upcoming film "To Love Some Buddy" with Zanjoe Marudo.

"May mga ginawa kami dati 'di ba? Mga 'Your Song' pero ang nene ko pa noon," she added.

Zanjoe echoed his newest leading lady's sentiments adding, "Excited na akong makatrabaho si Maja. Matagal na. Buti nga nangyari eh kasi baka mamaya 40 na ako [wala pa rin]."

Maja then recalled, "Actually ang tagal nang pinitch sa atin ito 'di ba? Last year pa kaso lang busy mag-'Wildflower.' 

"Noong una medyo nanganib pa kung kami ba talagang dalawa ang magkakasama sa pelikula, buti na lang swak pa rin ang schedules namin."

This Maja-Zanjoe first-ever big-screen project will be directed by Jason Paul Laxamana.

"Romance, comedy, drama na may pagka-sexy. Kuwento ng mag-best friends na nagtaluhan," the acclaimed director explained about the story. "So nagkandaleche-leche 'yung buhay nila dahil do'n."

Direk Jason also wants us to "expect something very relatable, and at the same time something very crazy. Papakita talaga natin 'yung talent nila for the first time together."

This is not Direk Jason's first time to work with Zanjoe, though. Remember "The Third Party" with Angel Locsin and Sam Milby?

"I've been a fan of his acting ever since then," he relayed. 

"Then si Maja naman, of course, 'Dahan-dahan' pa lang," he quipped. 

Direk JP went on to share his first trivia about the film.

"Noong sila 'yung na-cast, I felt very excited to the point na meron na akong original vision, hindi eh, hindi pa sapat 'to, kulang pa, kailangan i-match ko sa kung ano pa ang kaya nilang ibigay," he revealed.

Meanwhile, Maja and Zanjoe are excited to bring out the chemistry in them.

"Excited pa ako sa kung ano 'yung chemistry na malalabas namin ni Z kasi fan din ako ni Z. Nakakanood naman ako ng mga 'MMK' niya, syempre doon drama, ito light lang pero may sakit, may kurot, pero siyempre hindi todo drama. Kay tagal bago nangyari 'to," the Dancefloor Princess stressed.

"Excited ako doon sa kalalabasan ng tandem namin as best friends, as lovers, as dalawang taong nasasaktan," Zanjoe related.
