- Jerorld Tarog is changing major stuff in the Darna movie.
- One of the major changes is the super heroine’s costume; making it more practical.
- Though Liza Soberano is the only one locked-in for the said project; the rest of the original cast members are retained.
In an interview aired in ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol, the new director of Darna, Jerrold Tarog, shared that there will be changes on the costume and the script of the most awaited Darna movie, produced by ABS-CBN Films.
According to him there will be practical changes on the costume design, he said: “May mga gagawin pa kaming iba sa costumes, mas praktikal. Basta kasi mayroong design na ginawa ‘yung previous team, medyo iba ‘yung direksyon na gusto kong gawin. Kung ikukumpara doon sa nasimulan na medyo may iba lang akong gagawin.”
When asked if when is he going to commence shooting, he replied: “Kapag natapos ko na, doon ko pa lang malalaman kung kailan namin masisimulan.”
To make things clear, Tarog and the former director, Erik Matti are in good terms as the turn over of the project took place. He also revised some parts of the scripts.
“Kasi kailangan ko ulitin ‘yung script na tinatrabaho nila Erik Matti. So, nandoon ako sa stage na ‘yon na kailangan ko siyang i-rewrite. Nagte-take off ako doon sa draft nila. So mula roon kailangan ko mag-research ng kaunti. So medyo may reset ng kaunti,” Tarrog added.
Despite all major changes on the direction of the film, he will keep the same cast as the previous draft used to have.
He added: “In this case kasi si Liza lang naman ang naka-lock talaga e. Okay naman ako doon wala namang problema.”
Regarding the date on when they will start shooting the film, the production (ABS-CBN Films) is in the process of preparing the new sound stage in San Jose Del Bulacan.
