Gretchen Barretto reacts to "Alta getting shelved" issue

Gretchen Barretto has already reacted on the issue that her teleserye 'Alta' has been shelved.

In 'Alta', Gretchen will star for the first time with Angelica Panganiban and KC Concepcion.

At PeopleAsia Magazine's 'People of the Year' Awards held Thursday night, TV Patrol reporter Mario Dumaual got the chance to ask Gretchen about the status of her new soap.

She said, "I want to fall in love with my project. Gusto ko, kapag in love ako sa project, I know that people will fall in love with a project. Hangga't hindi ko yun mabibigay, ayaw kong gumawa ng proyektong hindi tama para sa tao."

What a vague answer!

Analyzing La Greta's statement, it seems 'Alta' has been put on-hold but definitely will still push through ('coz she wants to fall in love with the project first.)

It's been more than a year already since 'Alta' was offered to Gretchen.

She gave her "yes" to the project in September 2010, while she was still committed to the fashion-serye 'Magkaribal' which earned her a Best Actress recognition at the 25th PMPC Star Awards for Television last October.

2011 has passed, but taping hasn't started yet for the much-delayed teleserye.

Aside from Gretchen, Angelica and KC, originally cast as their leading men were Zanjoe Marudo and Sam Milby, but the latter already pulled out from the project last November, 'coz he's set to leave this February 1 to try out his luck in Hollywood.

New additions to the cast after Sam gave up his part in the soap were Diether Ocampo and Luis Manzano.
