Jolina Magdangal and Marvin Agustin Are Finally Reuniting for a New Movie
A.k.a. Bujoy and Ned from Labs Kita... Okey Ka Lang?
(SPOT.ph) Those who grew up in the '90s and early 2000s were treated to the kilig-filled reunion of Carlo Aquino and Angelica Panganiban in Exes Baggage. Well, now, you have one more movie to look forward to. Marvin Agustin and Jolina Magdangal—otherwise known as the best-friends-turned-lovers Ned and Bujoy in 1998's Labs Kita... Okey Ka Lang?—are finally reuniting! It's been more than two decades since the classic hit rom-com, so it's about time we saw them back on the big screen.
The news was announced on the Instagram page of Project 8 corner San Joaquin, the same studio behind That Thing Called Tadhana, Alone/Together, and Changing Partners, to name a few. "It's Bujoy and Ned!" the caption says, along with the hashtags, #LagingTapat, #OhYes, #BestFriendMoLangAko, and #MarJoXP8SJ. It might just be a hint that the two will be reprising their roles from the classic film. Magdangal previously shared that she and Agustin have been interested in revisiting their past characters. "Basta gusto namin something na kontektado sa Labs Kita... Okey Ka Lang? Kasi 20 years na 'yong pelikulang 'yon eh. So anong nangyari kay Ned at Bujoy talaga, di ba?"
They'll also be working on the project with directors Antoinette Jadaone and Dan Villegas—so you're sure to be in for a lot of hugot and sawi lines. They're also joined by producer Reign Anne de Guzman (Alone/Together, Never Not Love You, Kita Kita, Walang Forever) and writer Bibeth Orteza (Hari ng Tondo).
Details about their reunion are still scarce, but with the stars and the crew behind it, you can already tell it's going to be one of the most highly anticipated projects of the year.
