Larena plays Ethan's best friend Archie. Isidro's role has yet to be announced.

The film will be directed by Andoy Ranay, who's known for his work on teleseryes like The Good Son and Till I Met You. He also directed the films Para Sa Hopeless Romantic and Diary ng Panget. The film is written by Wanggo Gallaga, who also wrote the horror film T'Yanak (which was directed by his father, Peque Gallaga). 


Plot details of the film are still under wraps, but the announcement was made with the question, "How open are you about open relationships?" Muñoz is known for her roles in the hugot-worthy Camp Sawi and Always Be My Maybe. Santos also has done his fair share of romance flicks, including 100 Tula Para Kay Stella, Mr. and Mrs. Cruz, and The Day After Valentine's. Given their experience with the genre, it'll be exciting to see how the movie will turn out. No release date has been announced yet.
