Viva's Romantic Young Stars

Today's hottest love team, JaDine, is celebrating its first anniversary with its most romantic movie yet.

James Reid and Nadine Lustre, launched to stardom in the blockbuster movie “Diary ng Panget” in April last year, are marking a big career milestone with their upcoming movie, “Para sa Hopeless Romantic”. Now they are joined by three other rising stars from their VIVA Artists Agency family - Shy Carlos, AJ Muhlach, and author Marcelo Santos III, who wrote the novel of the same title where the movie was based.

“Para sa Hopeless Romantic” marks the fourth onscreen pairing of the popular young stars in one year. They followed up “Diary” with the hit movie “Talk Back And You’re Dead” in July, and then later on with the top-rating four-part TV mini-series “Wansapanatym Presents: My App Boyfie” in ABS-CBN. This time, they bring to life beloved characters from the book written by Marcelo, who started out as an internet star with his romance videos before conquering the literary world as a bestselling author for his first novel, “Para sa Hopeless Romantic".

In the movie, James and Nadine play high school sweethearts whose romance suddenly ends when James’ character (Nikko) decides to end it without much explanation, sending Nadine’s character (Becca) looking for answers and yearning for closure or reconciliation. She finds a channel for her repressed emotions with the fiction stories she writes for her school paper, and finds a shoulder to cry on with her best friend, a spirited, happy-go-lucky, even more hopeless romantic girl played by Shy Carlos. Likewise, James’ character finds a helping hand in his best friend, played by AJ Muhlach.

Shy is known for her role in the toprating series “Be Careful With My Heart” and is chiseling a name too as an MTV Pinoy VJ. She will next be seen in VIVA’s upcoming horror movie, “Chain Mail,” and the movie adaptation of another bestselling book, Bob Ong’s comedy “Lumayo Ka Nga Sa Akin.” AJ co-starred with James and Nadine in both “Diary” and “Talk Back.”
