“Darna” is a movie project under the helm of filmmaker Jerrold Tarog.
Tarog shared a photo of a Darna Funko Pop with a camera in the background. He simply captioned it with “Day 1” on Instagram.
This made his followers excited with most of the comments wishing him good luck.
Tarog officially became part of “Darna” in October 2018. He replaced original director Erik Matti, who left the project due to “creative differences” with producer Star Cinema.
Actress Jane de Leon will be playing the titular role, and Tarog had described her as an “instinctive actress.”
De Leon, 20 and an exclusive talent of Star Magic, has appeared in a number of TV projects, including “Halik” where she played Jericho Rosales’ sister, Maggie Bartolome. She also appeared in the 2017 fantasy drama series “La Luna Sangre” as one of the moon chasers. She was also part of the girl group Girltrends of “It’s Showtime.”
