    On May 16, 2014, Star Cinema released news through their website about their next film, topbilled by Marudo and Pokwang with the title: "Coming soon: ‘My Illegal Wife’" and accompanied by a spoof image of ABS-CBN's The Legal Wife primetime series. They first introduced the cast, including Zanjoe Marudo, Pokwang, and Ellen Adarna as well as the storyline. The film, which started shooting on April 7, is their second film together after Cinco in 2010. In that case, both wanted to do more scenes that will show their improvement as a team, particularly having bed and love scenes on-screen.

    The director noted that Marudo can be the next Vic Sotto, who is the "Prince of Comedy", as the director can see his skills on becoming like one. Coincidentally, Marudo is a fan of Sotto.


    The team had a story reference on March 28 under Skylight Films. During the reference, Pokwang promises that their team-up will bring laughter and kilig. One month when their first shoot on April 7 started, both the main actors excitedly posted exclusive sneak peeks on their Instagram accounts. In the same way, entertainment writer Mell Navarro posted a behind-the-scene photo of one of Pokwang and Marudo's scenes through his Facebook account on May 9.

    On May 30, the full trailer of the film was uploaded in YouTube. The team, then, attended their grand press conference on June 2 at 11 a.m., accompanied by a livestream. In addition, the Marudo and Pokwang have had guestings in ABS-CBN to promote their upcoming film, including The Buzz, Gandang Gabi Vice, and ASAP, wherein they had a dance production number on the latter.
