Julia will be playing a famous Filipina actress named Hazel Ilagan.

She revealed, "Siya 'yung artista na walang control sa life niya and siguro sa career niya rin. Siguro she feels na wala na siyang control at wala na siyang say sa kahit anong bahay."

She continued, "I can relate so much to her... because naintindihan ko na kung bakit siya naging ganoon, kasi makikita natin sa pelikula kung gaano siya napagod sa ginagawa niya. This is what I do almost every day of my life, I love what I do and I love my craft and probably so does Hazel. Acting is her home, and kahit lumayo pa siya ng gaano katagal, uuwi at uuwi siya sa home niya."

As for Gerald, he'll be playing Louie Puyat, an OFW in Japan. Of his character, he shared, "A very simple guy, anak siya ng dalawang OFW na unfortunately, was deported sa Pinas. Doon nag-start 'yung pain sa buhay niya."

According to Gerald, "Between Maybes" will be a movie about finding oneself.

He said, "Lahat naman kasi tayo we have times in our lives na gusto natin ng tahimik, gusto nating lumayo sa kung anong magulo sa buhay natin...and 'yun talaga 'yung foundation noong story na 'to. It's how different people, someone na malayo sa ugali mo, can help you find yourself again."

The pair also acknowledged their unexpected casting with Julia saying that the film will be a great opportunity for growth.

"I don't think it's anything, anyone, every expected na magkakatambalan. There will be an exchange of wisdom, it's exciting, I feel like I'm gonna grow from him and from this project and Direk JP."

Julia will also star in Mikhail Red's upcoming zombie movie "Block Z" alongside Joshua Garcia, Ian Veneracion, Ina Raymundo, Dimples Romana, Maris Racal, McCoy de Leon, and Yves Flores. It is slated for release this year. Gerald, on the other hand, topbilled the 2018 hit "My Perfect You" together with Pia Wurtzbach.
