As early as last year, the clamor of fans for a project that would test the Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza partnership has been reverberating in the halls of APT and GMA. The management of both artists remained quiet and simply said that projects are in the offing. By mid this year, the fans were satisfied with a movie that showed AlDub is not a flash in the pan. ‘Imagine You and Me’ was a box-office treat locally and internationally.
While IYAM made fans happy, most were still unsatisfied, as they wanted AlDub on primetime. Instead of merely coming up with a project immediately, both management teams have decided to take time to plan any forthcoming projects. As among the most important talents of GMA and APT, the executives only wanted to give them the best. Thus, when the name of Richards was floated as possible leading man for the Ultimate Star, Jennylyn Mercado, the fans went on a bashing spree. Such response strengthened the demand that Richards should only be paired off with Mendoza.
A few days ago, GMA executives announced that an AlDub project was being talked about. Then, a photo showing Richards and Mendoza in a meeting with IYAM director Mike Tuviera heightened speculations that a project was indeed bound to happen. Adding to this development is the entry of Kris Aquino in the roster of talents of APT and the ending of Kalyeserye, where the loveteam was born.
Now, the grapevine is abuzz as rumors of an upcoming AlDub project is indeed bound to happen. Aquino is even being rumored to be part of the project. These rumors are keeping fans vigilant and the challenge for AlDub is to keep the fans interested until their project gets aired. Allegedly, a January 2017 has been set for the airing, which is just in time for opening the new year with a bang.
