Megan Young and Tom Rodriguez look sexy in the new Marimar
Do you think they can pull it off?
(SPOT.ph) It's safe to say that the new Marimar has its work cut out for it. Not only will they have to deal with comparisons to the Mexican original, but there's the beloved 2007 version that launched the career of Marian Rivera (not to mention her relationship with Dingdong Dantes).
Still, GMA Network is moving forward with their 2015 remake starring Megan Young and Tom Rodriguez as Marimar and Sergio, respectively. The show, which is slated to air some time in August, has released footage of the new love team on set.
From the looks of it, all the usual elements of the telenovela are there—a very windy beach, Marimar wearing white and riding a horse, and Sergio without a shirt on. According to Megan, they have both taken acting workshops to prepare for the show, and she promises that the Marimar-Sergio chemistry will be there.
Marimar also stars Lauren Young, Jaclyn Jose, Ina Raymundo, Alice Dixson, Carmi Martin, and Zoren Legaspi.
