This generation’s hottest love team and Jollibee’s Cheesy Bacon Mushroom Yum endorsers, James Reid and Nadine Lustre, are bound to bring out the inner romantic in everyone as they star in a film adaptation of one of Marcelo Santos III’s best-selling Wattpad novels, Para Sa Hopeless Romantic.
According to Star Cinema and Viva Films, Para Sa Hopeless Romantic “is centered on the premise that each one of us has a love story which can be written in any way that we please and that all of us desires for a happy ending for our individual love stores. In the movie, James and Nadine play the roles of Nikko and Becca, who are ex-lovers that have different dispositions about love.” Inigo Pascual and Julia Barretto also star in this romantic movie as Ryan and Maria who play the main characters in Becca’s alternative reality.
According to Nadine, her role as Becca is something very close to her heart. Becca is a college student working part-time in Jollibee, which is a brand Nadine endorses in real life. Interestingly, Nadine’s mother also used to be a Jollibee crew member during her younger years.
“Ever since my mom found out that I’d be endorsing for Jollibee, she started sharing stories about the time when she was a Jollibee crew member. She said that it was really fun and that it really felt like family with them,” shared Nadine. She added that she even expressed interest over the idea of actually working as a crew member for a day to experience it herself, which has become a reality because of this movie.
Nadine and James have top-billed two Viva Film blockbusters and are expected to record another one with Para sa Hopeless Romantic. Their undeniable chemistry never fails to capture the hearts of JaDine fans through their various projects, like the hit series My App Boyfie, Jollibee’s Cheesy Bacon Mushroom Yum television commercial, and their much-awaited teleserye On the Wings of Love.
Prepare to feel kilig, and believe again in the power of love and happy endings starting May 13, 2015 when Para Sa Hopeless Romantic hits cinemas nationwide.
