Kapuso actress Heart Evangelista has recently been chosen as part of the lead cast of the upcoming remake of the 1980's sexy-comedy flick "Temptation Island". But did she find the scenes too sexy that she has to back out?
Although she was indeed hesitant to do the film at first because of the sexy scenes, the "Dwarfina" star denied the rumor saying, "No backing out. I don't know where that came from... I'm very excited for this movie. And ayun, masaya itong movie na ito."
Aside from Heart, the other lead roles have been given to Solenn Heussaff, Marian Rivera, and Lovi Poe.

Next is spoiled, rich socialite, Suzanne (Cortez), whose every whim is attended to by her maid, Maria (Sun), learned of the contest when fliers dropped from a helicopter interrupts her sunbathing at the family pool and out of sheer vanity decided to sign up. Thirdly, Bambi (Arambulo), while planning her 18th birthday party, when she and her mother argue over the budget, since her once rich family cannot afford the grand debut, Bambi is forced to settle for a much simpler party. But during their argument, Bambi falls on her birthday cake; when sees the pageant's TV spot, her frustrations over her current situation inspires her to join. Rounding up the group is Azenith (Briones) a con-artist who plans to rig the contest by using her and her boyfriend's sexuality to influence the judges into voting for her.

The four women, Maria, Joshua (the gay pageant coordinator played by Jonas Sebastian) and his boyfriend Ricardo (Ricky Belmonte), Umberto (one of the ship's waiters played by Domingo Sabado) and Alfredo (played by Alfie Anido) land on a desert island.
