The Voice PH coach Lea Salonga isn't optimistic about doing doing the announced movie reunion with Pinoy Boyband Superstar judge Aga Muhlach this year.

In a press conference held on Tuesday for her concert "Songs from the Stage", Salonga said she would love to do a reunion movie with Muhlach if her schedule permits.

"I mean I would love to, again, if schedules work out. But I'm looking at my year and certain prospects and possibilities, and I'm not optimistic about our prospect for doing a film this year," she said.

According to her, the movie is only possible if both of them will be available at the same time. "It's a great loss. It will be fun", she said.

Furthermore, Lea said, if the movie pushes through, it has to be something that fits their age. "It has to really be right, I mean, we are approaching late 40s na. So kailangan hindi na pa-cute, 'di na kami bagay doon. I'm not cute anymore," Salonga explained.

Salonga and Muhlach's reunion movie was confirmed last August 2015 by Star Cinema.

Aside from "Sana Maulit Muli," Muhlach and Salonga starred in the movie "Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal."
