Angel Locsin and Piolo Pascual "Land Down Under"

After Milan, Dubai, London and Greece, Star Cinema is now bringing the Filipinos to Australia in the upcoming movie starring “Lobo” partners Piolo Pascual and Angel Locsin.

The shooting of the Angel-Piolo movie is about to begin tomorrow at Pasugong and Malaybalay, Bukidnon and will last for 28 days. After Bukidnon, the cast and crew will fly to Darwin, Australia to shoot the rest of the movie for the same number of days.

The director of the said movie is Rory Quintos.

Piolo and Angel have been training in horseback-riding under the guidance of couturier Vic Barba and Mikee Cojuangco in preparation for their roles as cowboy/cowgirl.

Land Down Under is scheduled to hit the theaters on Nov. 12, 2008 as the last movie in line with the studio’s 15-year anniversary.

Angel Locsin talks about "Land Down Under"
Locsin took a short break after her television hit series "Lobo". She has started lessons in horseback riding in preparation for her upcoming film under Star Cinema entitled “Land Down Under” with Piolo Pascual.

"Super excited kami... challenge lahat maski yung behind the scenes. Kasi sa Bukidnon kayo mag-stay walang glamorous lifestlye doon. Pati sa Australia magte-tent lang kami or sleeping bags kasama namin yung mga insects ganoon," she said.

Locsin that she is ready to take all the risks while filming the movie.

"Actually excited ako dagdag kwento ko din yon pero huwag naman sana," she said.

Last Friday, August 29, Locsin and Pascual started to shoot the film at Pasugong and Malaybalay in Bukidnon.

They will be there for 28 days before they fly to Darwin, Australia to shoot the rest of the film and will be there for almost four weeks.

"Land Down Under" is another offering of Star Cinema for their 15th anniversary. The movie is directed by Rory Quintos and is set to hit the theaters on November 12, 2008.

Piolo Pascual talks about 'Land Down Under'
Popular actor Piolo Pascual shared his excitement for his upcoming movie project with actress Angel Locsin entitled “Land Down Under.”

“Iba iyong pressure, iba iyong ‘Lobo’. But for a movie it’s a different challenge definitely all together,” Pascual told

The actor said that aside from doing a first movie with Locsin, it’s also his first time to work with movie director Rory Quintos.

Pascual said that he and Locsin will be shooting in Bukidnon and in Darwin, Australia for their cowboy/cowgirl scenes.

“I’m looking forward to it, at first time ko po itong Bukidnon and we'll be filming in Australia as well. So it’s definitely a welcome challenge,” he said.

“I always look forward to the movies that I do, because iba lagi ang approach. And with ‘direk’ Rory you can be sure na it’s a nice movie na hindi pababayaan, after all her critically acclaimed movies."

Pascual shared that as preparations for his role in the movie, he and Locsin are now training for horseback-riding under Vic Barba and actress-equestrienne Mikee Cojuangco.

Pascual and Locsin do their trainings at Manila Polo Club.

They will also do some of the popular sports in Bukidonl.

“Marami, all the sports they do in Bukidnon iyong how they pin down iyong bull or how they race with the horses. It’s gonna be pretty physical,” Pascual said.

The actor admitted he had some misgivings in portraying the role of cowboy, since he has to act as if he is really experienced and trained to be one.

“With the trainings that we’ve had for more than a month so far po ay nagugustuhan ko naman iyong pagho-horsebackriding. I never thought that I was really gonna enjoy, masakit at first,” he said.

Pascual shared that for the first day of his horseback riding training he got blisters since he didn’t know how to ride. But as time went by he got the hang of it.

“It's something that I enjoyed doing and I feel good knowing na hindi siya mahirap na trabaho kasi na-e-enjoy ko siya,” he said.

To ensure the safety of Pascual and Locsin the ABS-CBN management got them insured while doing the movie.

Piolo Pascual is a member of ABS-CBN's Star Magic. He is preparing for his out of the country shows with other stars like John Lloyd Cruz.

He also has a coffee table book entitled "Piolo: Believing" that showcases his career highlights.

Piolo started his career in 1997 and had his first big movie break entitled "Lagarista" in 2000 where he received his first Gawad Urian nomination for Best Actor.

He also starred in ABS-CBN's series "Sa Piling Mo" last 2006 with actress Judy Ann Santos and last year's "Walang Kapalit" with Claudine Baretto.
