Enchong Dee and Erich Gonzales Reunite via Remake of Maria La Del Barrio

ABS-CBN has formally introduced the Kapamilya artists who will play roles in the 90’s popular Mexiconovela Maria La Del Barrio which featured Thalia as Maria and Fernando Colunga as Luis Fernando. Kapamilya hottest love pair, Enchong Dee and Erich Gonzales, will do the remake.

This is already the fourth team-up of Enchong and Erich in the primetime. They were paired in Katorse (2009), Tanging Yaman (2010) and Magkaribal (2010).

Erich said that she was able to watch the Tagalog version of the Mexiconovela when she was young while Enchong admitted that he was not interested on it when he was a kid. So, he asked and watched the original copy of it until he finally understood the character of Luis Fernando.

Award-winning director Rory Quintos said “Maria La Del barrio is a part of the interest of the entire world. It is really, really exciting. It is very challenging to recreate it in a Filipino version. It is a big challenge in our part to recreate it”.

The director also said the Enchong and Erich are both perfect for the roles because of their proven chemistry onscreen.
