The popularity of “Party Pilipinas” duo Julie Anne San Jose and Elmo Magalona can no longer be denied, especially now that they’re slated to star in their very own movie.
Tentatively titled “Just One Summer,” it will see the Julie-Elmo tandem topbilling a project outside their “Party Pilipinas” performances for the first time.

“Just One Summer” will be produced by GMA Films and is slated to come out early next year.
