Filipino version of Twilight in the works

twilight_takipsilim2.jpgA Filipino version of Twilight is going to be produced for television by ABS-CBN, which bought the rights for over $1 million. Actors Rayver Cruz and Shaina Magdayao have been chosen to play Edward Cullen and Bella Swan in the film, called Takipsilim. Cathy Garcia Molina will direct the production, which is set to begin filming in the Philippines February. However, some Twilight fans think it will “ruin the real Twilight,” so they’ve started an online petition to put a stop to the production.

    Seriously people, what are your problems?
    They have paid for it and i really think it is not a stupid idea
    if you dont like it then don’t watch it
    and if you like subtitles then make your own version and add the subtitles
    leave them to do what they want
    don’t you have anything more to worry about than this remake?
    and if Stephenie meyer doesn’t mind why should you?
    i am saying this not as a Filipino but as a twilight fan
    Leave Them To Be and if you have one million dollars to spare then do whatever you want to them but if you don’t, leave them and keep your bad word to yourself
