Jessy Mendiola gets biggest break as "Sabel" | Her leading men: AJ Perez & Joseph Marco

Pretty young actress Jessy Mendiola will play Sabel in the TV remake of the 1981 Joey Gosiengfiao film "Bata Pa Si Sabel" which starred Snooky Serna and Albert Martinez.

The 2010 remake is now simply titled as "Sabel" which marks Jessy's most daring role and her biggest break since being launched as Star Magic Batch 15 member in 2007.

But prior to "Sabel", Jessy actually was already getting good breaks. She played leading lady to the Giggerboys in "Your Song Presents: Boystown", was paired with Coco Martin in "Kung Tayo'y Magkakalayo" and led the young cast of "Gimik 2010".

Also getting their biggest breaks in "Sabel" are Giggerboys member AJ Perez and former GMA Artist Center talent Joseph Marco as Jessy's leading men.

Both attractive young men, here's how Jessy describes them on Twitter when asked by one of her followers as to who's more cute between AJ and Joseph: "cute si AJ, hunk si Joseph. Ha ha!"

A teaser is already being shown on TV and many have noticed that it's
like "Katorse" aired last year and starred Erich Gonzales as Nene,
Ejay Falcon, Enchong Dee and even Jessy herself in a guest role.

Even the promo shots above remind us very much of the said hit soap, which was also a remake of an 80's movie.

But Jessy is quick to differentiate "Sabel" from "Katorse" on Twitter
and she said, "Parehas pong daring pero iba story and characteristics
ni Nene at Sabel".

"Sabel" also stars Tonton Gutierrez, Glydel Mercado, Rita Avila and Raymond Bagatsing. It will replace Kokey @ Ako starting December 6,
just 3 days after Jessy's 18th birthday.

Catch full trailer of "Sabel" tomorrow, November 29, after Mara Clara.
