“It’s definitely worth it. Siguro hindi naman ako mag-aaccept ng isang project if I didn’t feel it was worth leaving my family for a little bit to shoot. When they offered this to me, it was an instant yes because I love the original. I couldn’t let it pass,”

shared the actress during the project announcement at the Dolphy Theater.

Meanwhile, both Carlo Aquino and Joshua Garcia shared how honored they were to have been working with Anne. As per the I Love Izzy lead actor: “I’m excited because the last time we worked together, it was in Baler (2008), so it’s been a long time since then.”

Following the success of Can’t Buy Me Love, Mae Cruz-Alviar will direct the series with creative producer Henry King Quintain. Infusing Filipino flair, the drama will be shot in Negros province and Iloilo City. Additionally, the creators are also sourcing Filipino illustrators for talents, similar to how the original series incorporated illustrations from the lead actress’s children’s book stories.
