(Inside Manila) The team behind the "ultimate hugot movie" is cooking something good.

More than two years after it has been released, "That Thing Called Tadhana" has once again created a buzz after a concept for its much-awaited sequel made rounds on social media.

Benjamin Tolentino, the editor of the romantic-comedy film, had shared a scene of the possible sequel. The two-minute clip only showed an exchange of messages between the two characters on Facebook but it was enough to spark interest of fans.

"Homework namin sa skwela na mag-edit ng isang eksenang walang mga tao. At dahil medyo homesick ako, ayun, eto naisipan kong gawin. Tonet, kelan na ba natin 'to gagawin?" he wrote.

The video started with Mace asking Anthony for a drink and the latter agreed but only if they will meet near his place.

Mace obliged to the request only to find out that Anthony is already based in Singapore.

Antoinette Jadaone revealed through social media that she already wrote the opening sequence for "That Thing Called Tadhana 2" but it never pushed through.

"Hindi ko pa alam kung meron ngang karugtong o tama bang meron, basta sinulat ko na lang, bakit ba hahaha kesa mawala di ba (hindi ko na natuloy uli). Sinend ko kay Dan [Villegas], Reign [de Guzman], Bianca [Balbuena], at Ben [Tolentino]. Tapos nakalimutan na namin although napapag-usapan from time to time," she wrote.

She praised Tolentino's short clip but did not confirm if the team will pursue the sequel.

"That Thing Called Tadhana" tells the story of broken-hearted girl Mace, played by Angelica Panganiban, who met Anthony, portrayed by JM de Guzman, at the airport in Italy. They are both on their way to the Philippines and upon arrival, they decided to travel together to places like Baguio and Sagada, despite being strangers.

The ending of the movie left the viewers wondering if Mace and Anthony ended up together and fans are actually wishing for the next chapter of their relationship.
