In an interview, the actor shared: "It had been a while since we were in the same shot for that long.

In a vlog released on January 21, Toni talked about the project, saying: "First time ko napanood yung pelikula, 2006, when we were shooting You Are The One. 'Di ko makakalimutan 'yon, nasa Pampanga kami. Sabi ni Direk Cathy, "panoorin mo yung My Sassy Girl. 'Yan ang peg namin sa'yo. Dapat ganyan ka, may pagka-feisty, ganyan.' So 20 years after the film was released, I'm given the opportunity to play the role here in the Philippines...I consider it as a big blessing."
