2018 is the year of JaDine
JaDine is going to rule the local entertainment scene. From recording studio to the concert stage, and from the boob tube to the big screen, the power couple is making an explosive comeback aiming to dominate multimedia platforms.
But how are they going to do that? Let’s count the ways.
Kicking things off in red-hot fashion is the couple’s second major concert, Revolution: The JaDine Concert on Feb. 9 at the Big Dome featuring a star-studded lineup of special guests.
The concert promises to give pop fans a night of unforgettable upbeat production numbers and heart-melting romantic moments worthy of the multi-talented multi-media love team. Among the highlights will be select songs from James Reid’s current album, Palm Dreams.
Released last year to wide acclaim, the chart-topping album not just showcases James’s growth as a singer, it also marks his songwriting and producing his own music label, Careless Music Manila. The label has also produced one track in Nadine Lustre’s upcoming as-yet untitled new album.
James and Nadine will take Revolution on the road in the summer with a provincial tour in April and a series of shows in the US in May. But that won’t be their first out of the country trip this year.
The box-office stars will be flying to London in mid-January to shoot scenes for their upcoming new movie, Never Not Love You. A contemporary romance-drama about love among millennials, the highly-anticipated movie marks JaDine’s reunion project with their On The Wings of Love director Tonet Jadaone. It’s the trio’s first big screen outing together and JaDine’s first since 2016’s blockbuster, This Time.
Never Not Love You will be followed by at least two more movie projects this year. James will co-star with superstar Sarah G in the big comedy The Granny (20 Again), a local adaptation of one of the biggest Asian movie hits in recent years. He is also set to start shooting the big action-fantasy epic Pedro Penduko later this year.
Nadine, on the other hand, will also branch out on her own with not just one but two movies that will further showcase her versatility – the light romance-comedy Ulan from the writer-director of Camp Sawi, Irene Villamor and the thriller The Nurse from the acclaimed director of Die Beautiful, Jun Lana.
As though these projects won’t fill their schedule, James and Nadine are also set to return to primetime television on ABS-CBN with a new television series. To be directed by acclaimed director Dan Villegas, the as yet-untitled soap is scheduled to start taping in the second quarter of the year.
And that’s how JaDine will rule 2018.
