As much as we love to see Angel Locsin to fly again as Darna in the upcoming biggest film of Star Cinema, ABS-CBN finally confirmed via official press statement that it will not anymore pursue due to Angel's medical condition.
But the good thing, Angel will have a movie with James Reid, and another one with Coco Martin, plus a new teleserye, and a special role in KathNiel's "La Luna Sangre."
Here is the Official Press Statement of ABS-CBN regarding Angel Locsin's Darna movie:
ABS-CBN, Star Cinema, and Angel Locsin have mutually arrived at a final decision that she will no longer pursue the “Darna” movie due to her medical condition.
We gave Angel our full support during and after her treatment in hopes that she would portray the iconic Filipino heroine. Because of Angel’s passion and dedication, she resumed training for the movie after undergoing surgery and therapy for the disc bulge in her spine. Unfortunately, Angel experienced back pain twice during training, prompting her doctor to advise her not to participate in strenuous activities to avoid permanent damage on her spine.
We would have loved to see Angel fly again as Darna and take our hats off to her for the gargantuan efforts she has put in for the project.
We wish her well as she will begin working on other projects, like a special role in “La Luna Sangre” with John Lloyd Cruz, a movie with James Reid, a movie with Coco Martin, and a teleserye.
