Could this mystery girl be the new Darna?
Director Erik Matti posted the photo on his Instagram account.
(SPOT.ph) Although director Erik Matti has been busy with the recent Honor Thy Father and MMFF controversy, he still managed to post a photo on his Instagram account that had Darna fans excited about the upcoming film adaptation.
Although the photo of a veiled woman was posted weeks ago, it still has fans speculating about who could take on Darna's star-spangled red suit. A quick look at the comments section reveals they're mostly divided: some say it could be Jessy Mendiola, others Julia Montes, while many insist it's definitely Nadine Lustre.
Meanwhile, Angel Locsin (who had to step down from the role due to an injury) earlier confirmed that the studio has found a new actress. However, when asked about the role during the red carpet auditions of Pilipinas Got Talent on January 12, she was a little more coy about her involvement, saying, "Hindi ko po alam, pero ewan ko po."
Back in December, Star Cinema released the first teaser trailer of the movie ahead of screenings of their MMFF films, Beauty and the Bestie and All You Need is Pag-Ibig. The teaser featured a voiceover of the actress and shots of her hooded figure, but did not reveal her identity. The video very briefly leaked online before being taken down.
An official teaser trailer has yet to be released online.
