Several Filipino websites publish articles about an upcoming picture that it's more or less based on Wuthering Heights. The details that we have been unable to decipher from the websites (we have to admit that we are not very well versed on Tagalo) are the following.

Picture: Richard Gutiérrez and Angel Locsín. Courtesy of GMA Films & Regal Entertainment.

The film is called The Promise and it will be released on Valentine's day (ahem). The main characters are played by popular (in Philippines) actors: Richard Gutiérrez and Angel Locsín. The director is Mike Tuviera and the screenwriter is Raquel Villavicencio. According to her, this film will be more faithful to the original novel than Hihintayin Kita Sa Langit (1991) by Carlos Siguion-Reyna (another Filipino film loosely based on Wuthering Heights).

The film is to be shot in different parts of the Philippines: Bolinao in Pangasinan, Cavite, and Laguna. The Promise is jointly produced again by Regal Films and GMA Films.

The Promise
also stars Rhian Ramos, TJ Trinidad, Ryan Eigenmann, and Raquel Villaviciencio herself as TJ and Rhian's mother.
