Cruz took a major hiatus from his showbiz projects after his 2017 film Finally Found Someone with Sarah Geronimo. According to him in his November 2020 interview with Boy Abunda, the demands of his line of work can be draining, and as a creator, he wants to give his viewers something worthy of their time.

During his break, Cruz was only seen in a few public appearances. He had a small role in the 2019 film Culion, for instance, and he also welcomed his son Elias with Ellen Adarna in 2018.

A movie with Bea Alonzo is reportedly in the works

Aside from the film with Alonzo, Cruz was also seen in February 2020 while shooting for Lav Diaz’s movie Servando Magdamag, which is based on journalist and screenwriter Ricky Lee’s novel.
