It’s confirmed! Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin will portray Pinoy superhero Darna in a film.
The confirmation was made by Malou N. Santos, managing director of Star Cinema, the film production arm of ABS-CBN.
ABS-CBN has acquired the rights to remake Darna, as well as a number of Mars Ravelo titles that used to belong to GMA-7.
If you can still remember, Locsin played the role as Darna in GMA-7’s TV adaptation of the classic Pinoy superhero story years ago when she was still a Kapuso.
“We’re already done with the story of her past,” Santos said. “We’re already brainstorming. We’re targeting next year for filming. So tuloy-tuloy na ‘yun.”
“When we bought the Mars Ravelo stories, gusto namin isa-pelikula ang Darna kung sino so Darna sa panahon ngayon. Definitely, the effects will be different from the past Darna movies. Kasi if you will not showcase the different effects, sasabihin, ano ang binigay na bago? Kaya pinag-aaralan kung ano ‘yung ibibigay na bago,” Santos shared.
