Copy-pasta’d from ichi 




ABS-CBN has bought the rights to make a tv version of the hit vampire novel “Twilight”, ABS-CBN’s CEO, Euegenio Lopez III signed a contract last December 6, 2008 for the

tv adaptation of Twilight, the rights cost a more than a million dollars, the taping is set to start next year by February in Baguio, Tagaytay, Bukidnon and some parts will tape outside the country. And it will be directed by Cathy Garcia Molina, the tv adaptation will focus with the love story between Edward and Bella, this is much more than a drama, romance, but also fantasy. This is co-produce by Ignite Media Inc.

-_- its gonna be one lame-o-party if this one gets released. IF because:

1. Pic looks shooped

2. Budget people, Budget!

3. Haven’t seen the official news from the channel but only rumors I googled

Anyways, I haven’t read the book nor do I have any interest in reading it. I didn’t even tried to bring myself into watching the film adaptation though it was THE fad these past weeks of december. Then I came across THIS. I’m no fan so I can’t really say how bad a fan would feel…but in terms of fanbase appreciation: ABS-CBN may not be supported. CAN YOU JUST IMAGINE the characters bearing the SAME name as the book but with the local language as a means of communication?! (inb4 “I’m american LOSER! HAHA” save me the humor english-language-as-a-primary-language guys) OMG THAT WOULD BE SOOO NOT COOL for us filipinos.

    Im a huge fan of Twilight and i do not approve of what ABS-CBN is planning. I was already a bit disappointed with the film adaptation…what more if they make it into a teleserye?!? Nakakaiyak ang idea n ito talaga. Sakit sa ulo.

    Actually it was confirmed that Shaina and Rayver didn’t have this kind of project. It was just a “fraud” only for publicity.
