'Darna' Film Has Been Postponed Indefinitely
Star Cinema's highly anticipated Darna film project has been postponed indefinitely.
ABS-CBN released a statement confirming that the project will no longer be pushing through due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The rights to the Darna property will remain with the network. "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."
"We are committed to following production guidelines under the new normal and the safety of the actors and production team is a top priority. However, because the movie requires complex logistics, crowd shots, and fight scenes that involve physical contact, it will be difficult to give justice to the superhero film while strictly adhering to the guidelines."
