Angelica Panganiban, Marian Rivera topbill "Temptation Island" 2011 remake

Angelica Panganiban and Marian Rivera will topbill the 2011 remake of "Temptation Island", a hit movie during the 80's directed by Joey Gosiengfiao under Regal Films.

It's a lot exciting that these two actresses, who are both known as "palaban", will be working together in one movie.

Both are also regarded as a "queen" in their respective network. Marian is Kapuso Primetime Queen, while Angelica is one of the two Queens of Star Magic, along with Bea Alonzo, a title vacated by Claudine Barretto.

Angelica will be replacing Andi Eigenmann, who was the very first to be reported as cast member of Temptation Island 2011. It's still unknown why Andi, a contract star of Regal, has been removed from the cast.

Joining Angelica and Marian in the film are Carla Abellana, Lovi Poe and Pokwang plus Zanjoe Marudo, Jake Cuenca and three more leading men. Also starring are John Lapus, Tim Yap, Tessa Prieto-Valdes and more.

But the question is: Who between Angelica and Marian will get a top billing over the other?

"Billing" is very important because it shows the star status of an actor or an actress. And even if both actresses will have stellar billing in the movie, it's going to be an issue as to whose name will appear after the word "and" in the poster and whose name gonna appear first as the "cast of characters" rolls at the end part of the movie.

How true that Angelica accepted the movie offer in a condition that she will get top billing over Marian?

And also, how true that Marian is now hesitating to do the movie because she doesn't like being just second on the billing?

I think both are not true.

I believe that Angelica grabbed Regal's offer because it will be directed by Chris Martinez, her director in "Here Comes The Bride", the 2nd top-grossing film so far this 2010.

It's also her wish to work with Marian. In fact, on Twitter, she had this post last September 1 and it clearly says that she admires Marian a lot and she wished for a movie with her:

As for Marian, a contract star of Regal, she can actually demand to be on top of the billing but I don't think she will have issue on that.

At the MMFF 2010 presscon held last week, she happily announced that she'll be doing Temptation Island and for sure, she already knew by then that Angelica will be joining her in the film.

It's actually too early to dwell on this issue and I hope it's not really gonna be an issue because it's a lot exciting that they're gonna be starring in one movie, something that will only happen in a Regal-produced movie.
