When I Met U is co-produced by GMA Films and Regal Films as part of their exchange deal with Star Cinema in order to make the team-up of Richard and KC possible.
The first team-up of Richard and KC was with Star Cinema’s “For the First Time.” It was helmed by Dyesebel director Joyce Bernal. It became a monster hit to be the 3rd biggest pinoy movie of 2008 with a box-office gross of P134.7 million.
Can GMA/Regal surpass the amount hauled by the Star Cinema produced Richard-KC movie? Another obstacle that the film outfit recently faced was when the original director of When I Met U, Jose Javier Reyes, resigned due to tight schedule and creative differences. He was later replaced by Joel Lamangan.
The theme song of When I Met U was based on a classic Apo Hiking Society love song of the same title. It was revived by Sarah Geronimo in 2003 and now it was recorded by KC Concepcion for the music video of their movie.
When I Met U will hit theaters nationwide on February 11, 2009.
