Angel Locsin to play 'Darna' on the big screen-A A +A
Tuesday, October 8, 2013
ACTRESS Angel Locsin was set to reprise the role of Darna on the big screen.
Star Cinema managing director Malou Santos confirmed this information in a feature article published by the Manila Bulletin on its website on Sunday.
Santos also disclosed that Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo will top bill the remake of 1996 fantasy-adventure drama "Magic Temple."
"The first draft of the script of Magic Temple already arrived. For Darna, we're already done with the story of her past. We're already brainstorming. We're targeting next year for filming. So tuloy-tuloy na 'yan," said Santos on the said broadsheet feature.
Angel was first featured in "Darna" in 2005 while she was still with the GMA Network Inc.
In a prior interview with the "Toda Max" star, Angel said she's hopeful to play again the part but won't feel bad if it will be given to other stars.
"Part na siya ng pagkatao ko. 'Yung nagkaroon na ako ng opportunity at nagawa ko naman ng maayos yung duty ko bilang si Darna, malaking bagay na 'yun sa akin," said Angel.
"Pwede naman din siyang ibigay sa younger generation. Ayoko ko na ipagkait kasi iba din naman ang binigay sa akin ni Darna, sa career, sa personal and sa buhay. Ayoko ipagdamot sa iba yung experience na yun." (Sunnex)
