It’s a sad day for everyone (myself included) anticipating Darna flying on the big screen. In a official statement issued by ABS-CBN, the rights to “Darna” remain with ABS-CBN as it decides to postpone the film production indefinitely after careful deliberation on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on movie production and cinemas.
Ever since ABSCBN acquired 13 Mars Ravelo titles to reproduce it onscreen, I positioned myself to be at par in every single scoop of it. So when iconic characters like Dyesebel, Captain Barbell and DARNA’s right transferred to ABSCBN, this fascination became huge. (See LINK HERE: ABSCBN ACQUIRED DARNA).
Last 2013, Star Cinema Managing Director Malou N. Santos interview with broadsheets appears on one of their entertainment section revealing the project so here it is! ITS OFFICIAL, ANGEL LOCSIN still the DARNA! STAR CINEMA Presents Mars Ravelo’s DARNA!
And suddenly, Angel had health issues and beg off to play the role.
Then they officially announced the role will be played by Liza Soberano. But,
Last April 2019, TV Patrol broke the news about the much anticipated movie event of 2020 as ABS-CBN and Star Cinema regretfully announce their acceptance of Liza Soberano’s decision to withdraw from the “Darna” movie project due to medical reasons.
And then come July 2019, ABS-CBN Found new Darna in Jane De Leon. Jane De Leon is one of the hundreds of auditionees but even before the call, Jane was doing some projects already with ABS-CBN. Her recent roles were moon chasers in one of the most successful series in Primetime Bida, “La Luna Sangre”, Maggie Bartolome in HALIK starring Jericho Rosales.
Last 2017, I blogged about First Few shots of DARNA shooting under Direk Erik Matti (LINK HERE)
