Eugene Domingo was originally tapped to lead the Nieves segment, as she was the personal choice of director Michael Tuviera. But a misunderstanding between Eugene's manager Ricky Gallardo and producer Lily Y. Monteverde over alleged talent fee prompted the actress to pull out from the project. With this, Monteverde banned Eugene from her production, thus she was also pulled out from her other Regal project, Desperadas 2 (2008).
Marian Rivera replaced Eugene Domingo. BJ Forbes, who was supposed to play the sidekick, was also replaced with Robert Villar who was the personal choice of Marian. Marian wanted Robert to be her sidekick since they have previously worked in Dyesebel (2008).
