Sharon Cuneta will return to the big screen this year, after all.

In her latest posts on Facebook and Twitter, the Megastar assured fans that she will be doing not just one but two movies in 2017.

One of them is Mes de Guzman’s Cinemalaya entry, “Ang Pamilyang Hindi Lumuluha.” Sharon posted that she was still on board contrary to an earlier announcement by Cinemalaya.

“Relax, everyone. Doing all we can so that we can start and complete my first-ever Cinemalaya entry, ‘ANG PAMILYANG HINDI LUMULUHA,’ to be directed by award-winning director whom I respect and am looking forward to working with, MES DE GUZMAN. Praying for no setbacks and if none at all, it’s a definite go!”

While the phrase ‘praying for no setbacks’ suggest that her schedule was still being ironed out, what is certain is that the actress who has not done a movie since 2009’s “Mano Po 6: A Mother’s Love” was not giving up on the film.

It was earlier reported on by indie film scene chronicler Mell Navarro that the Megastar could not start shooting the film due to “schedule issues” and that De Guzman had given her an “ultimatum” to decide until April 5 whether she could still commit to the project.

Sharon has not only remained committed to the project, she is also doing a new and yet untitled project for Star Cinema. This after she and ex-husband Gabby Concepcion (through his manager Therese Ramos) both confirmed that their long-awaited reunion movie was not pushing through this year.

“I am still doing TWO MOVIES THIS YEAR. YIPPEE!!! (AND AM STILL DOING THE HAPPY DANCE!),” Sharon declared in her latest post on Facebook and Twitter.
