Gabby Concepcion is Facing Dilemma on his Comeback Movie

gabby.jpgGabby Concepcion left the Philippines after the 1994 Manila Film Festival awards scandal. After more than a decade, the handsome actor is returning to the country facing another controversy - kapamilya ba siya o kapuso? His first television appearance since he first landed on Philippine soil after 13 years was the ABS-CBN talk show The Buzz last Sunday. He announced that ABS-CBN has offered him 2 film projects and a teleserye. But he signed a contract with GMA Films last September 2007.

Here’s the sitch:

Gabby Concepcion‘s original “comeback” plan was through a movie that he is supposed to make under GMA Films. The movie outfit of the Kapuso network was the first to offer him a project, tentatively titled “Love Cruise” and supposedly written by Gina Marissa Tagasa under the direction of Mark Reyes.

Also starring in the movie are Jolina Magdangal, Rufa Mae Quinto, Mark Herras, Rhian Ramos, and Eugene Domingo.

The cast and crew were about to go to Italy to start filming but all of a sudden, Gabby Concepcion backed out because of “certain problems.” Gabby even explained to Jolina Magdangal the reason was that he didn’t like the script.

GMA films replaced Gabby with Dennis Trillo and the movie will still push through as planned.

And then came Sunday when Gabby Concepcion finally returned to the country and appeared on The Buzz where he announced that he is an exclusive Kapamilya and that his first movie will be for Star Cinema. He will start filming with Claudine Baretto on April 20.

The problem that Gabby is now facing is about the contract that he signed with GMA Films last year. The contract formally indicates that the actor should do his first movie under the kapuso banner and it has a provision that he can’t work with any other production until he fulfills the agreement.

Another legal dispute between GMA and ABS-CBN in the works?
