The series He’s Into Her understood the assignment of introducing the biggest love team of the year. Hence, DonBelle was born and now we’re here anticipating the love team’s debut in a movie.
Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano are headlining Star Cinema’s Love Is Color Blind, a coming-of-age film that aims to spread love and kilig this Christmas season as it starts streaming on digital platforms on Dec. 10.
“They are a great pair and you can see their undeniable chemistry on and offscreen. I wouldn’t be surprised if DonBelle becomes the next KathNiel or LizQuen,” said co-star John Lapuz during the film’s virtual junket.
“We love working together and we’re very comfortable with each other,” DonBelle said in turn.
Love Is Color Blind is a story about friendship and love and will center on the theme of worthiness in a post-pandemic setting. It features two different people, Cara (Belle) and Ino (Donny), who are trying to bring back hues in their colorless world. One wants to be seen, while the other one wants to see clearly.
The film marks the directorial debut of John Leo Garcia who switches roles with Cathy Garcia-Molina, who is the producer this time.
Garcia has been in the industry for quite some time producing notable movies including Olivia Lamasan’s The Mistress, Starting Over Again, and Barcelona A Love Untold; Mae Cruz-Alviar’s Crazy Beautiful You and Can’t Help Falling In Love; Joyce Bernal’s Everything About Her; and Antoinette Jadaone’s Alone/Together.
Furthermore, he produced some of Garcia-Molina’s blockbuster projects like Four Sisters and a Wedding, Hello, Love Goodbye, The Hows of Us, She’s Dating The Gangster, and My Ex and Whys.
Prior to Love is Color Blind, he directed one of the episodes of the KathNiel digi-movie series The House Arrest of Us.
The latest love team movie of Star Cinema is a breakthrough collaboration among ABS-CBN Film Productions Inc., Cignal TV, and Smart Communications Inc.
