It has been made final and official that the Darna movie remake will no longer involve Angel as the iconic Pinoy superheroine due to her medical condition (for it might worsen the damage on her spine), according to the press statement.

She will instead work on other Kapamilya projects, such as a reunion TV project with John Lloyd Cruz ('La Luna Sangre'), a movie with Coco Martin and another movie with young actor James Reid.

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.
