Richard Gutierrez now holds the stance of one of the most celebrated hero of all times behind the legendary mask of Zorro. He’s an accomplished one-hell of a young action star, and a well-sought leading man that makes him easy to put to life the class, the prowess and the allure of the smashingly clever icon.
Recently, GMA 7 held a presscon for Zorro to launch a teaser and officially start the teleserye this coming Monday, the 23rd of March. It was said to be on a par with Hollywood class that it was noted Anabelle Rama to be quite teary for such warmth and support GMA is showing to her son’s projects.
Among the casts that will grace the TV series are 3 leading ladies, Rhian Ramos, Michelle Madrigal and Bianca King. Rhian would be her third time to match up with Richard, first is in Captain Barbell and second in Lupin. Jomari Yllana will join the story as Diego Dela Vega, the former Zorro and the one who’ll be teaching Richard Gutierrez to be his successor.
Zorro was shot in Bagac, Bataan that is an ideal place for 1900’s Philippine Hispanic setting. There’ll be a lot of fighting scenes as well. They’ve trained hard, including Rhian who delve into fencing. Horse back riding is also one of the things Richard has to be a master with. It will run on a three season that will make your masked rider experience a much long-standing excitement! 😉
This will be very interesting, don’t you think? GMA Films will be shooting this December for a very promising movie of two of the most sought after actors and actresses (not to mention ‘most followed’ love team of the year). This could be a nice ‘ride on the bandwagon.’ Who would not?
KC Concepcion and Richard Gutierrez has undeniably touched the hearts of the people and their chemistry seems to have a charisma to anyone who looked at them together. Their recently shown film (though they’re still roving around outside the country promoting it), “For the First Time” sold out their tickets to sky rocketing figures that made it a huge success (even better than Sarah and John Lloyd’s first day tickets)! 😯 It wasn’t a surprise at all when you have these young stars at the silver screen, and Star Cinema is no dumb to put them together first.
It’s not that GMA Films don’t have faith on those two stars. Maybe Star Cinema is just fortunate to have them both ‘in this film.’ Richard just enlightened us in an interview that he is not actually going over the fence and sign a contract with ABS CBN. That’s a cool answer from Richard and definitely cool to have another movie back to his GMA Films. “When I Met You” will be a sure hit for a Valentine Treat next year’s February. 2009 will be much awaited then for the ‘King of Valentine movies’ to pardon us from having a lonely hearts month. 😥 But as of now, seeing these two together just makes the fans sing their hearts out loud! 😉
