Can you believe it's been 18 years since Amor real first aired?! (18 years, 4 months, 12 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Amor real end?
When Amor real came to an end after 1 year in October 2003, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Matilde Peñalver y Beristain de Fuentes Guerra (Adela Noriega), Manuel Fuentes Guerra (Fernando Colunga) and Adolfo Solís (Mauricio Islas). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would an Amor real reunion disappoint people?
Amor real aired from 2003-2003 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Noriega said she's not sure if Amor real would work today. “I don't want to see old Matilde Peñalver y Beristain de Fuentes Guerra,” she told a journalist (Noriega turned 51 in October). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for an Amor real movie?
In a recent interview, Fernando Colunga said he can't imagine an Amor real reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Chantal Andere (who played Antonia Morales) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did an Amor real movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be an Amor real film, Ernesto Laguardia stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about an Amor real reboot?
Recasting Amor real for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of an Amor real reunion, an Amor real movie, or an Amor real reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
