Aga Muhlach and Alice Dixson are reunited for a movie project after 27 years.

Aga Muhlach and Alice Dixson are currently in Nuuk, the city capital of Greenland, filming a movie whose story is set in that chilly European country.

They have been in Nuuk since the second week of April and will stay there until the second week of May.

Their still untitled movie is a joint venture of Viva Films and Misschief Productions under the direction of Veronica “Roni” Velasco.

Prior to this project, Aga and Alice worked with each other for these two films: Hot Summer (1989) and Joey Boy Munti (Batang Ama) (1991). 

Aga was last seen in the family drama Seven Sundays, which was released in October 2017. 

A month later, Alice was seen in the horror flick, The Ghost Bride, which was top-billed by Kim Chiu.

Direk Roni’s first two directorial jobs, Inang Laya (2006) and Maling Akala (2007) had Pablo Biglang-Awa as co-director.

She went solo at the helm of Last Supper No. 3 (2009), I Do (2010), Tuhog (2013), and Dear Other Self (2017).

    Alice naagaw si Aga kina Lea, Sharon

    Mukhang hindi pa ang pelikula with Lea Salonga o Sharon Cuneta ang magiging followup ni Aga Muhlach sa kanyang matagum­pay na Seven Sundays. At mukhang hindi rin muna sa Star Cinema ang susunod niyang gagawin kundi sa film production ni Alessandra de Rossi.

    Kung matatandaan, nasabi ni Alex na matapos niyang magsulat ng pelikulang 12 para sa Viva Films na mapapanood na sa November 8, na-inspire siya na magtayo ng production outfit para raw magawa niya ang mga pelikulang gusto at makatulong sa industriya sa pamamagitan ng pagbibigay-trabaho sa mga taga-production.

    Kinumpirma nga ni Alex sa amin na ang una niyang project ay isang Aga Muhlach-Alice Dixson movie!

    Yes, sa huling meeting ng kanyang co-producer ay um-oo na ang dalawa sa kanila.

    Pareho raw excited sina Aga at Alice to work together, ayon sa balita sa kanya.

    Hindi siya nakadalo sa huling meeting nila sa dalawang showbiz veterans na ito dahil may equally important siyang lakad na nauna na niyang commitment.

    Walang detalye na ibinigay sa amin si Alex like kung ano ang istorya at kung script niya ang gagamitin, kung kailan ang simula ng shooting at kung sino ang direktor.

    Basta, magugulat na lang tayo at maging siya ay super-excited na sa unang proyekto niya bilang indie film producer.

    At para mapa-’oo’ nila sina Aga at Alice na parehong maselan sa kanilang tinatanggap, aba, this must be really special.

    Lea Salonga Finally Reveals The Reason Why Aga Mulach Did Not Become Her Partner In Real Life

    The Broadway star’s tandem with Aga Muhlach made a lot of the 90s moviegoers gush.

    Aga Muhlach and Lea Salonga might’ve parted ways in showbiz but their fans still get kilig especially when they read Aga’s letter for Lea saying she is “the one that got away.”

    During the latest episode of the morning show Magandang Buhay, the Broadway star admitted that she was also speechless with Aga’s  letter because she had no idea about the “very sweet, very well written, and very heartfelt” love letter.

    “I was in shock. We asked him kasi to write a message. I was going to different people para dito sa librong ito. Of course, how do we not ask him to make a contribution? And then all of a sudden, we got the submission from Aga,” she shared.

    “[My editor and I] were both in shock. Kaming pareho, we were looking at his letter. We were like, ‘Oh my God.’ The only reaction was ‘Wow!’ Yun lang. Frozen in my chair,” she added.

    Lea then shared that they never became a real-life couple despite having projects together because the timing was not right. However, she said that they’re good friends and that’s way better.

    “Bad timing talaga because when we were shooting ‘Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal,’ ako iyong may boyfriend sa totoong buhay. Noong ‘Sana Maulit Muli,’ during the first part, umiiyak-iyak siya because he had just broken up with a girlfriend. And then naghiwalay muna kami because he had another movie to make, and I had a musical. So we started doing ‘Sana Maulit Muli’ again. Nagka-girlfriend ulit. Ako naman ang single. So talagang hindi kami meant in real life,” she said.

    Lea and Aga worked together in the movies “Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal” (1992) and “Sana Maulit Muli” (1995).

    THE UNBEATABLE LEADING MAN: Aga Muhlach, tinuhog sina Bea Alonzo at Alice Dixson

    Bea Alonzo and Aga Muhlach

    BONGGA ang pababalik pelikula ni Aga Muhlachafter years of absence.

    After muli humarap sa kamera via Star Cinema’s Seven Sundays (with Ronaldo Valdez,Enrique Gil, Cristine Reyes and Dingdong Dantes), kung saan nakakuha siya ng acting nomination mula sa EDDYS Award as Best Actor na mangyayari ang parangal ngayong Lunes, July 9 sa Solaire Resort and Casino ay super active si Morning ( palayaw niya) dahil dalawa at sabay pa ang pelikulang ginawa ng aktor.

    Una ang pelikulang first time nila pagtatambalan niBea Alonzo under the direction of Paul Soriano.

    Sa katunayan, kababalik lang nila after almost two weeks of shooting sa Vancouver, Canada kung saan ayon sa actor: “Wow, I enjoyed working with Bea.”

    As of this writing, ang alam ko ay wala pa rin titulo ang pelikula (is it true na ang titulo ng movie nila ni Bea ay based sa pangalan ng mga karakter nila sa movie na tipong Sid and Aya?).

    Alice Dixson and Aga Muhlach

    Ang second film ng aktor ay ang movie naman nila ni Alice Dixson sa direksyon ni Roni Velasco at sa malayong Greenland pa ang location shooting.

    Sinulat ng actor sa kanyang IG account: “I’m proud of this movie. Thank you for this wonderful experience. You made everything easy for us. Those difficult scenes you made it made it so easy to do. Let’s work again soon,” mensahe ng aktor sa kanyang director.

    “It’s our art, we enjoyed doing it.” Aga Muhlach on why ‘Nuuk’ is worth the watch this November

    “Oo kailangan kong tumakbo sa loob at ayaw ko ng lumabas, ayaw ko ng mag-take talaga pero pag-take normal ka ganyan, pero pag cut! (minuwestrang naninigas na sa ginaw). Kahit mga crew, we have to stop for a while kasi hindi na nila kaya.”

    This November, Aga Muhlach and Alice Dixson star in the psycho thriller, Nuuk.

    The movie was shot in Greenland whose sub zero temperatures made it a challenge for the cast and crew. Alice even had retakes because they had difficulties talking due to the coldness.

    Tech Jungle: ABS CBN TV Plus Go Review

    “May isa lang akong sasabihin. Dito sa Greenland sa totoo lang, nu’ng ginawa ko ang pelikula ang ganda-ganda ng katawan ko. Nakakalungkot lang kasi kung kailan gumanda ang katawan ko, naka-jacket naman ako parati sa pelikula,” Muhlach said.

    “Actually hindi namin kaya ang walang jacket, pero pag nasa loob ng bahay, medyo naka-sweater ka lang. Pero when you’re out and filming, you really have to cover up,” the actor related.

    Director Roni Velasco shared that the coldness was intolerable.

    “Hindi ka puwedeng maulanan doon kasi papasok ang lamig. One time umulan ng snow, sina Aga at Alice tumakbo sa loob ng bahay kasi hindi mo kakayanin talaga ang lamig.”

    The actors and the crew really struggled making the film. Muhlach shared their experience on fighting the cold just to be able to have a good take for their scene.

    “Oo kailangan kong tumakbo sa loob at ayaw ko ng lumabas, ayaw ko ng mag-take talaga pero pag-take normal ka ganyan, pero pag cut! (minuwestrang naninigas na sa ginaw). Kahit mga crew, we have to stop for a while kasi hindi na nila kaya.”

    But why should audiences watch Nuuk?

    At the press conference held at Discovery Suites, Aga shared why Nuuk is worth the watch.

    “Lagi kasing sinasabi na, ‘Oh Aga you promote the film, promote the film.’ Meron din akong feeling na, I told Alice nga na ‘you know sometimes in many years of my existence in the industry, sometimes ang hirap ding magsabi ng ‘Sana po panoorin n’yo ang pelikula, sana po ganyan.’ Ang sa akin, ito ginawa namin ang pelikula malalaman naman kung kailan ang playdate sa tulong ninyong lahat.”

    To Aga, this film is work of art and he hopes that the Filipinos will support it.

    “It’s our art, we enjoyed doing it, we worked hard for it so this is all we have to offer, so we just hope people will like it and people would have a way to watch it, that’s really up to them.”

    Aga feels thankful for the big films that he has been offered despite his age.

    “I have these big films coming out left and right you know, parang I have Seven Sundays (2017), First Love (2018) with Bea, then I have NUUK this one with Alice, then I have Miracle in Cell no 7 for the Metro Manila Film Festival, so what more can I ask for?”

    Nuuk is the first Filipino film to be shot in Greenland, by local production house Mavx Productions and was produced in cooperation with the Embassy of Denmark. Directed by Veronica ‘Roni’ Velasco, the movie will premiere on November 6, 2019.
