Gabby-Sharon movie depends on actor’s schedule

His busy work schedule currently is the reason Gabby Concepcion can’t totally commit to his supposedly reunion movie opposite former wife Sharon Cuneta.

“It would all depend on my schedule if I could still accommodate doing a film at this moment. Personally, I’ve no problem with the idea. I’m open to do any good movie offer. But as I’ve said earlier, my schedule is full as of now, so let’s see.”

At present, the handsome actor is a contract artist of GMA-7 and is the male lead in the top-rating afternoon drama Ika-6 na Utos opposite Sunshine Dizon and Ryza Cenon.

“Apart from the said soap, which I’m happy about because of its consistently high ratings and generally positive feedbacks, I’m also part of the Derrick Monasterio starrer Tsuperhero and about to tape for Eugene Domingo’s Uge. That eats up much of my time and it would be hard to do a movie simultaneously. 

“I’ve signed a two-year contract with the Kapuso and from time to time, they field me in promotional tours or events for their shows. Of course, they’re my priority. That’s understandable. They’re the ones giving me projects, right?”

Despite this, Gabby is not closing his door on the possible movie with Sharon.

“Anytime, as long as my work schedule permits. Actually, I did an indie project titled Under the Crescent Moon and after that, several offers came. I just couldn’t attend to them because of my workload on GMA. As the film with Sharon, my foremost consideration is the script. It has to be really good since it will serve as a grand comeback vehicle for our screen tandem,” he ends.


Janno Gibbs sheds light on the rumor that because he is currently seen in the top-rating prime time show Meant To Be, he’s back on GMA.

“For the record, I’m still with TV 5!” he avers. “This is just one project in which I asked permission from the management and I’m glad they allowed me. I got excited when I heard that GMA was planning to have me as a guest in Meant to Be, so I talked to my Kapatid bosses right away.”

Many say he’s lucky that despite the fact that he left the Kapuso stable, they still got him for a guest stint, which doesn’t happen to every star. 

“Perhaps, one huge factor there is that I’ve been with GMA for 30 solid years. I can say that I’m one of their longest-serving and original talents. I’ve done a lot of hit shows with them. My loyalty to them is proven, so to speak. 

“Before I moved to TV 5, I talked to the management. I asked permission to try working for the Kapatid network since that time I still didn’t have a new show with them. I guess, that gesture was very important to them. So I can say I left without burning the bridge between us. There was no bad blood.”

Speaking of TV 5, Janno says he doesn’t have any regret with his transfer even if some say that the station is not doing much shows of late.

“The contract that I’ve signed with them is for two years. I don’t have any single regret because the management is kind and accommodating. It’s just that at this point, they are diverting direction, trying and experimenting new stuff, which I understand. At the end of the day, it is still business.”

When his contract with TV 5 ends, many ask if he’ll consider going back to GMA.

“If I’m still welcome, why not?” states Janno.
