A report on magazine tabloid showbiz website Pinoy Parazzi reveals that the love team, more popularly known as JaDine, has several kissing scenes in the film, which is based on the best-selling novel of the same name originally published on Wattpad by young Filipina writer Alesana Marie.

In response to her on-screen partner's compliment, Nadine said during a recent press conference that she also likes how James kissed her as the young actor's breath "smells like strawberry".

"He's a cool guy, very gentleman and comfortable to work with,” Nadine Lustre said, according to the online report.

Talk Back And You're Dead, or TBYD for short, is directed by Andoy Ranay and produced by Viva Films in cooperation with Skylight Films, a subsidiary of ABS-CBN's movie production arm Star Cinema.

During the presscon, Direk Andoy said that in one instance the love team's kiss was tender until both felt that their kissing scene has become intense, but the box-office director did not divulge how many kissing scenes are there in the film.

Meanwhile, James said he enjoys every moment that he and Nadine are together. He said they are compatible in many things, open to each other, and are getting to know one another's character over time.

However, the 21-year-old former reality show star said he wants to know a girl, like Nadine Lustre, better before courting her to make sure that she's the one.

Talk Back And You're Dead will be shown in theaters nationwide starting August 20. View the TBYD full trailer.
