At the DVD launch of historical movie Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral by TBA Productions, director Jerold Tarog, who is the current director of the upcoming movie Darna, admitted that he needs to make a few changes from the work that has been done by its previous director, Erik Matti.
He also admitted that there’s no updates so far about the movie that will star Liza Soberano.
“Kasi kailangan ko ulitin ‘yung script na tinatrabaho nila Direk Erik Matti. So andon ako sa stage ngayon na kailangan ko siya i-rewrite.”
He said that he wanted the story to be deeper and more meaningful.
“Nagte-take off ako doon sa draft nila, so mula doon kailangan ko mag-research ng kaunti, so medyo may reset ng kaunti.”
Even if there will be changes to the script, he clarified that there will be no changes with the movie’s cast.
“In this case kasi si Liza lang naman ang naka-lock talaga e. Okay naman ako doon wala namang problema.”
Tarog added that he will actually change the costume of Darna.
“May mga gagawin pa kami na additional for the costumes, mas praktikal. Basta kasi mayroong design na ginawa ‘yung previous team, e medyo iba ‘yung gusto kong direksyon. Kung iku-kumpara lang sa dating costume, may iba lang akong gagawin.”
When asked about Soberano, he said that they still haven’t talked to each other.
“Pero pag na-meet ko siya, doon ko palang masasabi ang expectations ko. Pero naniwala si Direk Erik Matti kay Liza, so ‘yung faith niya, I’m sure worth it ‘yung faith na ‘yun. I’m looking forward to work with her.”
