Mario Maurer, Erich Gonzales to star in a movie

Thai actor Mario Maurer inked a one-movie contract with Star Cinema shortly after his arrival on Wednesday, and it has also been confirmed that his leading lady for said flick will indeed be Erich Gonzales.
Recall that a rumor alleging their purported pairing first circulated among various social networking sites in late July this year. In reaction to this, Gonzales said during a press conference last July, “Sa ngayon po ay hindi pa napag-uusapan, pero happy ako na matuloy 'yan, 'yung ma-consider lang sobrang happy ako, masaya po ako at salamat po sa kanila [fans], tignan po natin kung matutuloy po.”
For his part, Maurer told ABS-CBN in an interview after his contract signing, “I have never met her [Erich] but I’m looking forward to meeting her.”
The actor also shared that the movie, titled “Suddenly It’s Magic,” will mostly be filmed in Thailand and “a part of it will be shot in the Philippines.” No other details have been reported yet as of this writing.
Maurer first made waves in the Philippines after his 2010 movie “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” was screened on local TV a few months back. Prior to this, his performance in his less popular – at least in the Philippines – debut film “Love of Siam” (2007) earned him a Best Actor nod in the Cinemanila International Film Festival 2008.
Meanwhile, Maurer said in a separate report by PEP published on Oct.26 that he’s “very surprised” when he saw the huge amount of Filipino fans that came out to meet him.
“I didn't think I have this amount of fans in the Philippines,” he admitted.
