The TV remake of Maruja will be based on the 1967 film starring Susan Roces and Romeo Vasquez. It is Mars Ravelo’s immortal love story about two people whose love for each other transcended a century.
Aside from Kristine, Maruja will also star John Estrada, Gloria Romero, Rafael Rosell, and the new Kapamilya Karylle.
In 1996, Viva Films produced a remake of the Maruja films that starred the popular love team of Carmina Villaroel and (the late) Rustom Padilla.
Aside from Maruja, Kristine Hermosa has another project on ABS-CBN entitled Ikaw Lamang, which reunites her with former love team Jericho Rosales.
Both Maruja and Ikaw Lamang are scheduled to be released this year.
