Broadcast industry leader GMA Network and APT Entertainment team up with Hollywood and Korean film producers David Shim and Choi Pyung Ho for a movie project which will soon hit cinemas in the country.

The parties signed today, September 9, a memorandum of agreement to formalize their collaboration, which aims to combine the best of what the Philippine and South Korean entertainment can offer.

Present during the signing held at the GMA Network Center were Atty. Felipe L. Gozon (Chairman and CEO, GMA Network); Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr. (President and COO, GMA Network); Felipe S. Yalong (EVP and CFO, GMA Network); Ari P. Chio (VP for Investor Relations, GMA Network); Angela Javier Cruz (VP for Corporate Affairs and Communications, GMA Network), Antonio P.

GMA and APT Entertainment are coming off the box-office success of the Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza-starrer Imagine You and Me and both are very excited to work with their Korean partners.

“This is an exciting time for us in GMA and we consider it a privilege to have the opportunity to work with Korean producers who are known for creating blockbuster hits in Hollywood and Korea,” said Atty, Gozon.

“We’ve been looking forward to doing a collaboration with other movie outfits to be able to present fresher, newer, ideas and executions. And GMA is very kind to bring us in together with our foreign partners. I’m sure we will be able to present quality entertainment to the movie going public,” shared Mr. Tuviera.

“Maganda itong development because it’s a combination of three great organizations, we have GMA, we have APT Entertainment and then the Korean team, who are very knowledgeable about movie making. It’s a great opportunity for the Philippine movie industry and we’re looking forward to the success of the venture,” Mr. Yalong added.

After producing several movies in Hollywood and South Korea, among them Gladiator, Saving Private Ryan, American Beauty, JSA, and Myung Ryang, to name a few, David Shim and Choi Pyung Ho revealed that they are now ready to break into the Philippine movie market.

“With the experience and expertise accumulated over the past 20 years in film making both in Hollywood and Korea, Choi and I will work with GMA and APT in providing what should be a truly "ground-breaking" level of motion picture experience to the Philippine audience,” said Shim. (30)

    3. Kaya rin siguro kinuha ang APT kahit na may GMA Films naman. Remember that Star Cinema made a movie rin with Mario Maurer and they're also planning a collab with Lang Leav. At least mukhang may budget na ang GMA ngayon to pull off projects like that.

    4. GMA has good writers. I'm sure it can be well-executed. This is going to be a budgeted quality film. I'm so excited!

    1. Maine fan ako pero it would not be beneficial or strategic to APT and GMA if si Maine (or even Alden) ang ilagay sa movie. They have their own fanbase na willing silang supportahan. Sayang ang opportunity. This is the chance for APT and GMA to build up their actors and actresses. Since mahina sila sa hype and marketing, let the outsiders do it for them. Maraming may talent sa network, it's time for them to shine. Para rin hindi na nila gamitin ang Aldub sa promotions nila.

      Delete
    2. I agree with you anon 1:47, Maybe Korean producers will be good for aldub but not imports to be with them in one show. give it to other gma artists

      Delete
    3. Why would they risk their very first project venture with internationa producers to unknown artists? Kailangan nila ng huge fan base at ingay para umalingawngaw ang joint venture na ito para sa next projects with less fan base will bot be difficult enough to make noise, and Aldub is the answer to that. First project for Aldub, then the rest for their other talents.

      Delete
    4. 10:43 teh it's more of a risk kung baguhan kukunin nila like maine.. they're targeting not just the philippines but korea and the entire asia... wag kang ano jan

      Delete
    5. 4:52 baguhan man si Maine pero may huge fan base na siya. And she's a fast learner. Besides, baguhan pa ba ang more than a year in showbiz? Kaya din may tinatawag na work shop teh. Alam mo ba meaning ng work shop? Check mo dictionary. Wag ka ring ano dyan. APT yan so malamang kasama si Maine na nagakyat ng milyones sa APT at GMA sa plano na yan.

    6. huge nga ba talaga? parang ang dami nang bumitaw

  12. Kris Aquino daw ang actress. HAHAHA. Cheret. Interesting partnership though. Good move by GMA and APT considering na may fanbase ang Korean actors and actresses dito. Ang galing talaga siguro nila sa negotiations at nakakuha sila ng ganitong partnership.

  13. Give credit where credit is due , the mere fact that the Korean and American producers teamed up with GMA and APT for a movie means they believe in their capability.

  14. OMG! Sana makagawa sila ng mala-Train To Busan o Miracle in Cell No. 7! Rooting for you, GMA! Time to step up! ^_^

    4. Maganda yung mga movies ni Jen with non-gma actors pero yung acting niya di ko gusto, pero yung movie with JLC, grabe nagalingan ako sa kanya, depende ata talaga kung sino ang kasama lalake, usually talaga, lalake ang nagdadala sa story kaya nadala niya si Jen sa acting. Naisip ko nga si Piolo naman kaya ang ipartner kay Jen, let's see. Kung Korean naman, Song Joong Ki, hehehe.

    2. Iyakan lang ba ang alam mong arte 9:27? Sabi mk magaling si Maine sa comedy pero di siya magaling umarte. Ano ba talaga? Hindi lang drama ang acting, kasama ang comedy don. Panggap ka pang fan ka.

    4. Tumpak 9:27! Di nya mapull off ang drama nung sa Lenten Special di ko mafeel ang acting nya plus dun sa IYAM pag comedy pwede naman kahit pano may ibubuga. Masyado pa hilaw si Maine for this

      Delete
    5. 9:27, ibig sabihin may potential si Maine. It's not easy to do comedy, no? Dapat nasa timing ka and not OA yung galaw and delivery. You can't invalidate her talent in acting just because she's having difficulty in heavy drama scenes. She's not there yet but she's on her way. Thank you.

  26. 9:27, I really doubt it na fan ka. Pero sabi mo nga hindi na ngayon, good riddance. Alam mo, paano na lang kung ma-master pa ni Maine ang pag-iyak (na basehan mo sa galing ng pag-arte)? E di lalong maraming... pero hintay ka lang, ha? Bago pa nga lang siya sa industry pero, let's just be honest to ourselves, ang layo naman niya dun sa mga datihan na awkward magdeliver ng lines at umarte pero nasa teleserye. I really believe na Maine will get there, SOON... maghintay ka. Kahit hindi siya ang maging choice dito, that's fine. We'll always remain loyal to her. Gets mo ba 9:27? Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ok si Jennylyn! Hopefully isali din si Dennis Trillo, sya pjnakamagaling na aktor ng GMA. Dapat lang na mabigyan ng magandang movie yan. Pati si Glaiza de Castro. She's not leading lady material but she could definitely pull off an off-beat character. Mahusay rin, dapat bigyan ng magandang movie. Tama na muna sa ka-cornyhan at pabebe. Pakitaan naman natin ang audience at international market ng quality film with quality actors.
