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.

    Ummmm. . . why?? What’s the point of doing this in the first place??

  2. Krista • December 24, 2008 @ 11:39 AM

    It’s called subtitles people. Do they really need to be wasting money on a second version? Still, the girl playing Bella is really pretty. 🙂

  3. Brittney • December 24, 2008 @ 12:44 PM

    Stop the madness I really want to sew the fillopins!

  4. samantha • December 24, 2008 @ 1:39 PM

    this is stupid!
    thats what the point of subtitles are!
    like really whats the point?!
    also how are they gonna make rosalie blond, that would look a little weird. and edward dont look like edward!
    this should be stoped,, i really think it would ruin the real twilight!

  5. kelsey • December 24, 2008 @ 1:46 PM

    im mad now!!
    this will ruin the real twilight!!
    they shouldn’t make this.. thats the point of subtiles.

  6. ivey • December 24, 2008 @ 2:32 PM

    I think this girl is way better for the part of bella than Kristen Stewert. And have they every heard of subtitles??

  7. Lisa • December 24, 2008 @ 2:47 PM

    I agree that I don’t really see the point, but why be mad? Who cares what other people do. If they want to spend the money, let them. I kind of understand that if there is a huge fan base, that they might want a movie with people of their own “ethnicity”, or whatever it’s called.

  8. Kathleen • December 24, 2008 @ 3:09 PM

    I realize that other countries, nationalities want to make a movie that’s one that’s already out. But what I don’t understand is why they picked twilight. This movie is amazing & making one of their own nationality would wreck twilight. I believe it would be better if they came up with a movie, that hasn’t already been created.

  9. Jon • December 24, 2008 @ 3:09 PM

    Hey, you know what really ruined Twilight? Twilight ruined Twilight! Go watch a real vampire movie. Like Blacula.

  10. quinn • December 24, 2008 @ 3:43 PM

    Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Nothing is ruined, it’s all good. Besides New Moon is going into production with a new director and most of the same cast.

  11. Jo-Anne. • December 24, 2008 @ 3:55 PM

    Lisa, very well stated.
    Qiunn, a very Merry CHristmas to you as well.

  12. Jo-Anne. • December 24, 2008 @ 3:57 PM

    sorry, quinn, I got it right this time!!

  13. sim9999 • December 24, 2008 @ 4:50 PM

    Why all the fuss? Hollywood does this all the time. The Ring and The Grudge are remakes of Japanese films (Ringu and Ju-On). The Departed is a remake of a Hong Kong film (Infernal Affairs). Why doesn’t Hollywood just use subtitles too? Because people are lazy and don’t want read while watching a movie, that’s why. People want to see movies about characters they can relate to and having a familiar ethnicity is one way of doing that. Do you think kids in Africa can relate to the movie Mighty Ducks? Of course not. So the movie could be remade as a movie about soccer and not hockey. I think that this issue only upsets children under 14 years old.

  14. Anonymous • December 24, 2008 @ 5:16 PM

    i think the series was ruined from the beginning

  15. meagan • December 24, 2008 @ 5:49 PM

    i dont no why they would want to make a filipino version? its good as it is in english .it really makes no scence mixing up the series in filipino.leave it as it is!!!

  16. demigod • December 24, 2008 @ 5:51 PM

    I’m not crazy about subtitles. In reading, you miss out on the picture.

  17. Tiffa • December 24, 2008 @ 6:32 PM

    sim9999 – I agree completely. Thanks for making sense.

  18. Arezou Amin • December 24, 2008 @ 9:24 PM

    “breaking Dawn” ruined Twilight. It’s too late to ruin the franchise now.
    I think the fans should leave the filipino people alone. So what if they want to make their own version. If they got the right to make the film, Stephenie Meyer doesn’t care and so I don’t see why the fans should

  19. margaux west • December 24, 2008 @ 9:59 PM

    ok this is crazy. Why on earth will they do that???it’s insane. sorry for guys but I can’t help it. I’m filipino too but its really unnecessary to do the fil version.

  20. belle • December 24, 2008 @ 11:43 PM

    well yeah…the americans did remake some of japan’s films…but they made it pretty well…takipsilim?…the very thought of it makes me sick…this should be considered as a blasphemy…after the unsuccessful my girl philippine version (i didn’t like it at all)…this??…total disaster…what next??…harry potter???…copycats…they couldn’t even make believable special effects…

  21. Joey!!!! • December 24, 2008 @ 11:54 PM

    tang&*%$!!!!! this is stupid!!!! stop it now!!!!!!!!! don’t ruin the movie!!!!!!!

  22. Joey!!!! • December 24, 2008 @ 11:59 PM

    Americans do remakes but what can we expect from Filipinos????I’m a Filipino and this is the first time I reacted this way..Twilight can not be one of the “kenkoy remakes” that they did!!!!!!!!! The hell!!!!! stop it.

  23. duh • December 25, 2008 @ 2:06 AM

    filipino people are really crazy, insane copycats attention seekers. stop this SHIT!

  24. anonymous • December 25, 2008 @ 2:08 AM

    Are you people nuts? Who cares if they make a remake. Are you planning on watching it? How does it detract from your viewing pleasure of the English version? If Hollywood can make a movie based on a book, why can’t someone else? There is a world outside of the English language. Don’t you have anything better to worry about?

  25. kikai • December 25, 2008 @ 2:51 AM

    i hate this crap! can’t portray the characters well..STOP THIS NONSENSE!

  26. Danielle • December 25, 2008 @ 2:59 AM

    Im a filipino, and i think it’s really gay to make a filipino version of twilight! The movie is already gay why make it worst?!

  27. takipsilim • December 25, 2008 @ 3:21 AM

    sorry to disappoint every “hardcore” twilight fan but do you guys have 1 million dollars to buy the rights to make another version of the movie?
    well if you don’t, then shut up and let the people with money do whatever they please.

  28. lancer • December 25, 2008 @ 3:27 AM

    i’m excited!!! the others who don’t like it… Then do not watch.. Okay?

  29. Divina • December 25, 2008 @ 5:24 AM

    WTF?!? PLS. Give the Cullens some justice. Especially Edward and Carlsile.

  30. Divina • December 25, 2008 @ 5:27 AM


  31. g • December 25, 2008 @ 6:41 AM

    im filipino but this is stupid…im a big fan of the twilight series book and this?? a filipino version?? what’s the point?? arrrgggghhhh…..there’s nothing really to be excited about this version…it so stupid idea…

    gosh! the FIl. version of twilight is making me SICK!

  37. Arezou Amin • December 25, 2008 @ 10:38 AM

    i just noticed the guy playing Edward looks kinda like a filipino Jacob 🙂

  38. Nancy • December 25, 2008 @ 12:25 PM

    To be honest, I agree with demigod. I don’t like subtitles. When I want to read, I pick up a book! You miss most of the movie reading the subtitles! I also totally agree with anonymous on Dec. 25 @ 2:08 a.m. I don’t plan to watch it so it has absolutely no affect on me.


  39. Clara • December 25, 2008 @ 2:24 PM

    It’s not like the English movie didn’t ruin the book for the rest of us…

  40. NatilaTekila • December 25, 2008 @ 3:48 PM

    Honestly i think it’s pretty cool, it wont be word-for-word the book, but how can you do that in ANY movie???
    I will honestly try to watch this movie (with subs obviously) because it seems pretty different, and fun..
    and anyway if you people REALLY hate the idea of a remake.. then DON’T FRIGGEN WATCH IT!!!!

  41. .lalala • December 25, 2008 @ 4:16 PM

    ewwww filipino version of twilight!!?!?!?1its a crap…they should cancellled it!!!!

  42. Valeria • December 25, 2008 @ 6:13 PM

    its pathetic how people cant come up with originalll ideas.
    its a book seriess, and then was made into a movie?
    whyy do a television series?
    comee on peopllee. 🙂
    buttt CAREEEE.
    twilight is still the best thing of life.

    u’LL just ruin THE REAL twilight!!!

    you’re just wasting your mOney!!!

    that’s just cRap!!!
    lOOk at the peopLe’s cOmmet! can’t you see? everybOdy is against it!!!
    sure filipinos will watch! not to support it but to critize it!!!
    ABS-CBN just want to beat GMA! just stOp it!!!

    if you’LL do it even everybody is against it.. do you think Stephenie Meyer will agree with it?? i personally don’t think sO!!!

  45. ke • December 25, 2008 @ 8:23 PM

    i don’t think it’s a big deal. if you don’t like the Filipino version then don’t watch it. but if you’re still upset about the idea or fact that such a thing exists…then sorry no one can help you. and besides, i can’t say how many Hollywood films are actually remakes of other foreign films (you probably don’t even know) but you don’t hear people going around complaining about it. sure you can say ‘oh but at least American versions are good’…well there are people, in this case Filipinos, who like it.

    anyway. be happy and Merry Christmas!!

  46. oh my • December 25, 2008 @ 8:26 PM

    i’m Filipino but i think it’s a little cheesy. but if we’re going to do a remake – why on earth did they pick Twilight? why not a good movie or at least a mediocre one? eh? seriously? Twilight?

  47. cullens • December 25, 2008 @ 11:02 PM

    stop this mess!!!
    i will not watch it!!!
    i won’t try watching it at least once!!!
    i hate them!!!

    they need to stop this!!!
    it’s yuck!!!!
    they will ruin the real twilight!!!
    hate them!!!

  48. Claire • December 25, 2008 @ 11:20 PM

    Just let those people w/ money buy their stories from someone else’s instead of making their own. But please give justice to Carlisle. Carlisle stopped changing at a very young age and Gabby is seeeeeeewwwwwww much older. If they want to be 2nd rate, hell go! But don’t ruin it.

  49. demigod • December 26, 2008 @ 12:39 AM

    I’m waiting for the african-american version. Hopefully with Spike Lee at the helm. Because..well, let’s face it. It’s time.

  50. anonymous • December 26, 2008 @ 4:17 AM

    eeew. please. no. God, please don’t make this happen. I can’t even believe people are considering this. COME ON, no one’s going to watch this stupid imitation. Get your own idea. Get some creativity. GET SOME ORIGINALITY.

    hahaha.. to many people react furiously on Filipino version of Twilight. As if they really do care. And what do they care about? Nothing. Twilight is copyrighted and if ABS-CBN bought the rights of Twilight from S.M., who the hell cares. Buy your own rights of Twilight and do whatever you want to it.

  53. weee. :D • December 26, 2008 @ 6:11 AM

    weeeeeeeeeeee. for me it’s okay to make a remake but i think the effects of this series will SUCK. 😀

  54. Kim • December 26, 2008 @ 6:15 AM

    let them make the series, after all, nobody will watch it.

  55. kei • December 26, 2008 @ 6:55 AM

    i’m a filipino but i don’t get the whole idea of this remake thing! and subtitles isn’t the issue, filipinos can read and write English well! by the way, the remake of my girl and kim sam soon was a total rip off! god, stop ruining filipino’s reputation.. hehehe with your money, why don’t you just make something new, fresh and ORIGINAL?!!!XP

  56. kei • December 26, 2008 @ 6:57 AM

    yeah, i’ll bet!! nobody will watch it!!

  57. MJ • December 26, 2008 @ 8:52 AM

  65. tributegirl • December 26, 2008 @ 12:32 PM

    I don’t really see how it’s going to ruin the original one. I won’t watch this copycat version, so I can’t see how it will affect me at all, or anybody else who watched the original and won’t watch the copycat.

  66. cream_o • December 26, 2008 @ 1:58 PM

    i really dont see the point in making this version. im a filipino but im saying this. they’ll make it look crap! i hate it. it will ruin the whole twilight saga. and how are they going to translate edward’s lines? where would forks be? they really need to stop this crap.

    Couldn’t have said it better myself…

  68. hulahoop • December 26, 2008 @ 3:53 PM

    Zana- completely agree with you. and people stop bashing Filipinos! and to those Filipinos – have some pride in your country. yes you do a lot of remakes but won’t you say it in a nicer way? you’re all right on board with those non-filipinos who say you have no originality blah blah blah. and you’re all just nodding your heads and saying ‘yup!’. even if you think this idea is crap or corny, fine but don;t go putting down your culture.

  69. tel • December 26, 2008 @ 4:16 PM

  70. Ben • December 26, 2008 @ 4:22 PM

    I didn’t realize so many people were so racist…..

    Personally, I don’t think this is the best idea in the world, but mainly because the original movie JUST came out.
    Typically, remakes wait a decade or so before launching.

    But, if the Phillipines wants to do this, let ’em.
    It’d be interesting to see this flick performed in Tagalog.
    AND the Filipina playing Bella is definitely a knockout

  71. HK_film_fan • December 26, 2008 @ 9:34 PM

    If I have to suffer through soul-less Hollywood remakes of The Ring, The Grudge, and Dark Water, Then American tweens can deal with Takipsilim.
    Americans can’t handle subtitles apparently. Why should Filipinos?

    you sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  75. Pinoy • December 26, 2008 @ 11:08 PM

    You are all so culturally devoid. They are doing a Filipino version of “Twilight” because vampirism plays a big part in Filipino history. Do your research before you spew racist propaganda.

  76. Kathleen • December 27, 2008 @ 12:25 AM

    I really hate this!! It makes me sick and feel so terrible,, ABS-CBN is really finding a way for their own downfall….Just spit this out! Go find another movie or series which you can copy easily, No reactors..The actors,staff, and other stupid copycats might regret this as well after realizing their freaky too-obsessed to be famous,,,, as if u look like bella and edward but u don’t… the both actors look like part of the werewolves…so typical, so SHIT…:(-

  77. melrice • December 27, 2008 @ 1:22 AM

    are they crazy..?? why are they doing such nonsense things..?!they will definitely and absolutely ruin the twilight movie..haven’t they ever thought that they are just STAINING the name of the Philippines..?ABS-CBN, u better put an end to this…aren’t u ashamed..?many foreigners are complaining about this..!!! what the hell…!!! pls, don’t!!! have mercy… plus, rayver cruz and shaina magdayao are so eewww…wala ra sila sa kumingking nila ni robert pattinson ug ni kristen stewart..!! do u understand that..??!!!!

  78. pogz • December 27, 2008 @ 1:46 AM

    why are filipinos like that..? are they really copycat..? what..?
    You are my life now – ikaw ang buhay ko ngayon

  79. ann • December 27, 2008 @ 2:05 AM

    i dont think its a good idea..
    twilight is hit not only because of the story but also because of robert pattison and kristen stewart.. as i see, no local actor will suit for the character of bella and edward..especially rayver as edward?! NO WAY!!
    i cant help my self laughing when i read the casting..
    what do you think if PIOLO as EDWARD?!
    LOL.. 😀
    juz kidding..

  80. bella • December 27, 2008 @ 2:38 AM

    the english version sucked BIGTIME! what more the tagalog version? errrrr!!

  81. secret • December 27, 2008 @ 5:47 AM

    Hey, I know this sucks, but I’m still want to watch takip-silim… the English version of Twilight isn’t quite great so I’m just curious if the Filipino version would be the same or worse… I want to compare… I’m a Filipino and I’m also a twilight fan.
    It’s just that, why rayver cruz???
    Hate it!!!

  82. michael • December 27, 2008 @ 5:52 AM

    holy sh*t!!!! filipino version!!! you must be joking……. I mean really, filipino version!
    god!!! this is madness!!!

  83. kimberly • December 27, 2008 @ 6:00 AM

    My god please don’t do it… its madness. you are ruining the essence of it. besides, i would rather patronize the american base rather than the filipino ones.Just donate the i million to the people who are in need rather than spending in a production that will cause humiliation to all filipino people.

  84. kai • December 27, 2008 @ 6:24 AM

    filipino version of twilight?!!!! pls, don’t do that! the movie is beautiful and they are ruining it!!!

  85. pauline • December 27, 2008 @ 7:39 AM

    im a filipino and of course i watch filipino tv series and most of the tv series here are filipino version of other tv series from other countries but i dont care about it, but when i knew that they made a filipino version of twilight i laughed at it and at the same time i got mad. why should they make a filipino version of twilight? i wish that they know that everyone is getting mad about it! they should stop this!!!

  86. wat.d.h • December 27, 2008 @ 7:48 AM

    my GHad!screw the pipol who have thought of making the filipino version of twilight…wers the ORIGINALITY here..??!!bunch of copycats

  87. Unna • December 27, 2008 @ 8:09 AM

    I’m Filipino.
    But i gotta say, i hate this. It’s going to ruin Twilight. Even those two actors don’t fit the role.
    I hope the petition will be a success.
    But please dont flame us Filipinos, some Filipinos DO HATE the idea too.

  88. kesley • December 27, 2008 @ 8:26 AM

    hahaha. natatawa na ko. amp. panget lahat. lalo kung abs ung casts.
    ahm.. stop wasting your time on watching nonsense movies. hays. panget twilight, eh ano nlng if ginawa pa nilang tagalog? mas lalong panget. TSS

  89. GMA7 is cheap • December 27, 2008 @ 8:49 AM

    WOW. i really love TWILIGHT, i also like ABS CBN rather than cheap GMA.. but, i dont think that making a filipino version will be a good idea.. in fairness, gabi conception will do justice for carlisle cullen (i think), but im still not convinced with raver cruz as edward.. PLS. SAHINA as BELLA?? EEEEWWWW!!!! change the cast if ABS want this project to be successful somehow.. i also agree with takipsilm “do you guys have 1 million dollars to buy the rights to make another version of the movie?
    well if you dont, then shut up and let the people with money do whatever they please. “

  90. psh • December 27, 2008 @ 8:58 AM

    at least ABS CBN will do the remake.. not GMA! HEHEHE

  91. TAKiPSiLiM HATER. • December 27, 2008 @ 9:20 AM

    WTF?! This is the most idiotic thing the Filipinos have done. They’re putting shame on the country. TWiLiGHT is waaaaay to good for them to spoil. SUBTiTiLES. Thats what they really need. Damn it. Havent they heard of it?! >______>

  92. Edward Justice • December 27, 2008 @ 9:43 AM

    This sucks!!! No matter what you do, you can’t make a film nearly half as good as the real thing! Edward Cullen doesn’t fit this Filipino feeler and Kristen Stewart deserves a better counterpart. Not to mention the gorgeous Ashley Greene. C’mon people. Stop this crap! Balderdash!

  93. pAoLa viteno • December 27, 2008 @ 9:44 AM

    I think it’s a great idea. If you’ve ever seen a play, you know that it can be redone by any other theatre company and it may be better than the original production, or not, but it’s still fun to watch someone else’s interpretation of the original work. Broadway musicals are done in different languages all over the world with different casts.

    I guess Stephenie Meyer trust abs-cbn,, soo we should also trust them,, ayt,,??

    but I just don’t like rayver and shaina as edward and bella,,

  98. len • December 27, 2008 @ 11:12 AM

    HA! I really don’t care , I’m a filipina and I swear they don’t stand a chance. What will it change, anyway? The movie’s awesome, we love the original twilght and we’ll just watch this version to make fun of it.They start filming in february and then it comes out a month later -__-

    Let them do whatever they want, it’s just going to be a huge joke for us.


  101. sheii • December 27, 2008 @ 12:38 PM

    are thy nuts or sumthin? filipino version of twiglight? takipsilim? what the heck!!they’re wasting there time and of course money..i mean.. seriously? that’s be honest.the casts itself sucks..rayver as edward? oh heck seriously..when i found out that they’re gonna make a filipino, i laughed hard..they’re sick..if i were them..i’ll cancel this piece of crap..

  102. doublesided • December 27, 2008 @ 1:06 PM

    why freak out about them making a version of their own.? they have the money..Stephenie Meyer gave them the rights to have a remake & it’s fine with her…. so you people who doesn’t want the new version, go pay S.M. $2million dollars & not to give the rights to the Filipinos..=p

  103. berrie • December 27, 2008 @ 1:07 PM

    What’s the point of doing a filipino version of twilight??? are they crazy or nuts or something?? cause for it is stupid to copy the original version of twilight because for sure Filipino versions will be “CORNY” as a corn field!!!! and they are also proving that Filipinos are such copycats and don’t have originality….

    Rayver and Shaina???? oh please…..
    and whole cast… people expect the worst…

    It’s going to be corny and that’s it!

  104. doublesided • December 27, 2008 @ 1:12 PM

    let’s just think this remake is a way of how Filipinos show their support for Twilight.. i heard Filipinos are big fans of twilight anyway..
    don’t watch if you don’t like it..
    peace out.!^_^

    “now i’m afraid”^_^
    afraid of losing hope for this stuff..
    i can foresee that this will be a humiliation..
    1)what would the special effects look like.?
    -cheap & unbelievably funny like cartoons.!
    2)will they insert commercials like what they did w/ the remake of MY GIRL.?
    -in MY GIRL it was really stupid seeing rejoice appear in some scenes..haha.!
    3)can Rayver sing, play the piano, and can he dazzle me.?
    – definitely NOT.! he can dance but not sing, he can only dance but ot play the piano..he dance and not dazzle me..!

    My gosh, No one fits the character of the original movie. mylene your correct rayver dont have any impact to girls. They were just ruining it. Shaina is not a good actress at all. i think she dont fit the character of bella being clumsy sometimes.

    With all due respect for those who have no access on Filipino shows, We are not really good in making remakes and chances are we will just make a fool of our good actors who will do the remake… this network, ABS, have done quite a number of remakes and personaly i’m not pleased with it!

    I’m not even an avid twilight fan!

    I’m doing this, because this is insane! The Hell!

    Don’t ruin Shaina’s reputation, please!

    are you mad??!! for the Filipino fanatics of twilight that is really an abomination……

    but my friend told me that he can see the point why they are making the Filipino version of twilight, “Takipsilim”. It is for the other filipinos who can’t hardly understand english even though there are subtitles, some of the viewers might be having a hard time reading it and can’t understand the real message of the movie….

    It’s not like i’m kinda approving this…
    Well… guys think about it…
    the movie might be nice also… maybe… i hope so….

    If i’m following my instinct being a TWILIGHT FANATIC..
    I won’t approve of this also….

    But following my instinct as a Filipino…
    why not…. let them give it a try…

  121. Crazia • December 28, 2008 @ 9:42 AM

    that would be just my GOOD and BAD comment about it guyzz ……

    think about the things that all you want… that won’t hurt me…
    it’s just a comment for heavens sake….

    but a little advice…..
    choose a person who really suits the characters in twilight……

    I know that… for the us being a TWILIGHT FANATIC no one could fit in as a right character……

    CHOOSE the “BEST” ones please……

    well ABS…..

    I hope if they read all of the bad comments for them, they’ll stop it but i think its impossible.
    ABS-CBN both the right to translate the Twilight into their UGLY Tv series.
    Its worth US$1 million, would abs trash their money for some bad comments of fans.
    I think not.
    In the first place, they did this crazy idea for money and fame.
    They think it would be a big hit if they publish this kind of Tv series like the original Twilight MOVIE and they will have so much money and fame like the Twilight.
    This is a SELFISHNESS!

  132. its a hoax • December 28, 2008 @ 6:57 PM

    There is no Philippines version of Twilight headed for TV. It was in fact a hoax that totally duped a celeb blogger and several sites.

    As hoaxes go, it was a good one. It was timed right before the Christmas holiday making it completely impossible to verify with official sources, who when they get around to reading our email inquiry are going to think that someone spiked our eggnog.

    Fortunately someone in the Philippines checked with the management of the station supposedly airing the show and got this reply, “Save the effort and hate words, guys! Buzzbox clarified with ABS-CBN Corporate Communication Head Bong Osorio and after checking with ABS-CBN Television Head Cory Vidanes categorically stated: There is no plan for ABS-CBN to remake Twilight.

    instead of buying rights.. why dont filipinos make their own movies.. coz im tired of seeing another version of twilight.. ONCE IS ENOUGH!! do filipinos have any originality at all????? come one.. they can do better than this..

    please dont do this.. BE ORIGINAL!!!!!!!!!

  135. JAM! • December 28, 2008 @ 10:15 PM

    ok…first…im a filipino and yet i have to say NO to this one!!! its a SOLID NEVER evry1!!!

    we will be a laughing’stock by every country who had a great respect 4 d movie nd d novel… and by doing this…we have juz justified filipinos being type’casted as “great imitators”!!!
    come on!!!

    it is also a waste in money!!! 1 million?! hello?! whats d point of makin one? THE twilight is enough…wat wud b better is 4 abs-cbn 2 think of sumting original…why not use d one million for a different production? that wud earn dem respect…

    now i know FILIPINOS are juz being OPTIMISTIC about this one. they think they can make a better and more romantic version…but hello?! it is THE TWILIGHT!!! it has juz been released november 2008, pipol still hav hang’overs for d movie, and boy abs cbn will ruin d “han’ovr” with this one!!!
    u can be OPTIMISTIC but dont forget to become REALISTIC!!!!

    foreseeing…it will be…

    1. corny
    2. acting’skill – dumb!!!,
    3. fight’scenes – awkwardly for amateurs!!!
    4. stunts – yeah ryt!! AS IF!!! dream on!!! it will be lame as other filipino action stunts…

    ABS CBN, be realistic!!! can you juz focus more on building up d quality of your movie/tv series production…

    you will never avoid COMPARISON!!! and trust me, it wont be good!!!

    filipinos r good for romantic luv stories..dat i hav 2 admit…but twilight is not entirely “luv story”…sum actions r der!!! think of a different one!!!

    I’m a Filipino. Please don’t drag “racism” into this issue. I’m not really a fan of the Twilight Saga but many of us here in the Philippines are against this “so called TV adaptation” of the novel. There are a lot of protesting bodies who are making a petition for the TV Network not to push this project. And I think the management of network released a statement about this issue
    ABS-CBN remake of Twilight a hoax!
    By : Edgar O. Cruz | Entertainment Editor
    27 December 2008 | 2:23 PM
    Di ko alam ako pala magdi-direct ng Twilight, director Cathy Garcia Molina curtly replied when Buzzbox asked her if she is opting for a localized version of the blockbuster vampire novel. The buzz is that ABS-CBN had acquired the rights to the novel for US$1 million and that Cathy has been selected to direct it with Rayver Cruz as Edward Cullen and Shaina Magdayao as Isabella Swan.

    Cathy informed Buzzbox her schedule is heavy as she has to finish principal photography and post-production of the John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo starrer A Very Special Love 2, Star Cinemas Valentine offering, before she could work on a new project.

    This led Buzzbox to inquire from the talent managers of the actors in the unofficial cast if they have been casted for specific roles. Anjie Ureta, manager of Chin Chin Gutierrez who will do the role of Esme Cullen replied, As of today we have not received information or inquiry regarding Twilight remake for Dos. Becky Aguila, the manager of Joross Gamboa as Jasper Hale and Empress Schuck as Angela Weber, texted, Di ko alam. Wala pang sinasabi. Veronique del Rosario, the manager of Nikki Bacolod as Victoria answered, Wala pang offer.

    Could this dont-know approach be a ruse? I got this idea when Carlo Orosa, the manager of Karylle as Rosalie Hale, originally answered Wala pang official. When asked for a clarification, replied, Cant be revealed yet. Could it be the whole project is still a top secret and people in the know were asked not to talk about it. This may be similar to the information embargo ordered by ABS-CBN top management for I Love Betty La Fea as to the actor who would play the role of Armando. This turned to be John Lloyd Cruz which Buzzbox correctly second-guessed.

    There are strong reactions from Twilight cult fans that a petition for ABS-CBN not to proceed with the project is on-going. The petition centers two issues: ABS-CBNs lack of ability to do justice to the novel and Rayver not being fit to do the Edward Cullen part. Before they do this, they have to find out first if the buzz is for real or a hoax?

    Save the effort and hate words, guys! Buzzbox clarified with ABS-CBN Corporate Communication Head Bong Osorio and after checking with ABS-CBN Television Head Cory Vidanes categorically stated: There is no plan for ABS-CBN to remake Twilight.

RAVER CRUZ AND SHAINA?? hello! common now. who would actully watch this? find something else to copy not twilight its to above filipino status,even though im filipina i dont agree with this. i think u should just think of something better.original and we can at least call it something our own.right?

I would even lie with my face flat on the floors of abscbn. please dont do this to the book. kindly wait for the fourth movie installment to finish before you even dare to destroy the story. pls dont add any or enormously to the pile of shame that our country already has. i bet nations would be looking up at us if we stop this craziness. dont spoil the book and the movie. if abscbn unfortunately cannot really come up with something of their on, then at least respect the twilight fans by letting twilight finish its movies first.

Twilight is still going to have its second movie,i think its best for “takip silim” not to be shown, this would just ruin it all. Twilight is Twilight.

    First of all, who cares if they do make one. If you don’t like it, then don’t watch it.

    Second, shame on you filipinos who talk shit about your own people.

    Third, twilight fans that are FRIGGIN mad about issues such as this, PLEASE GET A LIFE. There’s a real world out there that does not revolve around twilight.

    Sheesh stop acting like kids people. SHAME SHAME. Sure twilight is an awesome series, but when it gets you addicted like that, wooohooo. GET A LIFE.

  165. me • December 31, 2008 @ 12:53 AM

    This is madness!!! They are not giving justice to the Twilight film/novel..T_T

  166. CHOCONesQuik+MilO • December 31, 2008 @ 2:24 AM

    According to ABS-CBN they dont know anything about TWILIGHT remake but if they have plans to make it they would announce it.
    Guys the two couple playing the roles i think so is SHAINA and RAYVER CRUZ….
    i repeat ABS-CBN confirms they have no rights to produce the film thank you
    for ppl curious if it is true or not please refer to ABS-CBN news…..
    Please THINK before you SPEAK…

  167. kaycee • December 31, 2008 @ 4:13 AM

    Shaina, Rayver, and to the other characters and especially to those people started making this idea…you all sucks!!!all of you don’t have the right to copy especially if you can’t go to the level of the real characters of twilight…Stop fooling yourselves!!!

  168. rukia • December 31, 2008 @ 7:57 AM

    yuck!why make another one???
    besides,it is not true.

  169. anne • January 3, 2009 @ 7:59 AM

    yuck!!! raver looks like a fish he would never been edward cullen.. and i’m sure if you continue planning this copyrighted film no one will support this!!! you’re wasting your time and money

  170. Reyssel Rj • January 3, 2009 @ 8:25 AM

    I don’t agree, I don’t like it, Its to awkward. Why do they have to fallow the another version,What would be the American director will think that we Filipinos are copying of what they have. So whats the point & I don’t like Shaina she’s a fiend.

  171. Anonymous • January 3, 2009 @ 9:28 AM

    eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!…….rayver and shaina!
    no one will emiitate the twilight!
    I LOVE TWILIGHT♥and i dont believe that filipino will emitate it!

  172. Johanna • January 3, 2009 @ 2:43 PM

    WOW, this is so gay. I am filipino and I love Twilight but the fact that TFC or ABSCBN is re-making their own version of Twilight is so pointless and dense. I don’t even like watching TFC for the simple fact that everytime I watch their singers perform, they never have their own songs, either they copy Beyonce and other American artist, and this just KILLS it, for every twilight fan out there, you guys know how this feels. STOP THIS SHIT.

  173. Jennifer • January 4, 2009 @ 12:41 AM

    just because the american version was a hit doesn’t mean this will be a hit toon…..that’s just gay to make a remake…waste of MONEY!!!!

  174. ella • January 4, 2009 @ 5:07 AM

    am a pilipino and i dont agree of takipsilim they are pigging the real twilight…its stupid..stop this stupid movie right now..

  175. Dee • January 4, 2009 @ 6:05 AM it wasn’t true that they’re going to make our own version..

    but if they really want to, make them try…
    i mean, you’re not going to lose anything anyway. the thing is, if you don’t want to watch it, then don’t.

  176. carde • January 4, 2009 @ 6:16 AM

    yeah it is pretty humiliating for our part because once again, our countrymen are planning on remaking something. and yeah for sure you have thought that our version is going to suck, and that we don’t have originality…blah..blah..blah…

    i basically don’t want them to remake twilight. i hope they will leave the saga alone.

    and hopefully, they can practice having more originality. i mean, maybe that’s why the industry’s not flourishing the way they want it to be…because they just keep on copying things.

  177. nelle • January 4, 2009 @ 8:20 AM

    what the heck! Filipino version of twilight?
    Oh cmon! It really suckz! grrr

  178. kitkat • January 4, 2009 @ 4:53 PM

    omg disgusting

  179. Leave Filipinos alone! • January 4, 2009 @ 11:10 PM

    This isn’t true! Rayver and Shaina stated that they didn’t know anything about this. This was featured at Entertainment Live. This is just a photoshop picture! Also Twilight ruined itself!

  180. Jackie • January 4, 2009 @ 11:13 PM

    Not true, Rayver and Shaina stated on Entertainment Live that they didn’t know anything about it. What’s wrong about a country making theire own version of a movie? Americans does it all the time! Leave Filipinos alone!

  181. Nancy • January 5, 2009 @ 12:07 AM

    Hey GABX18…there’s no need to call Brittney a “moron”!

    By the way, while you are calling her a moron because she misspelled a word….you spelled her name wrong! So, what does that make you?

  182. Only pinoys marinig • January 5, 2009 @ 1:00 AM

    hey haters!
    I understand u filos, and im a filo myself but i think,
    its not gonna be dat bad. IF!!! they make the sp.effects soo shitt! like that show Dyosa man i will defntley burn the abs-cbn down and i will be ashamed of myself being a filo. Even da game efx. from the ps2 games is way better than the effx. from Dyosa.

  183. uhhh • January 5, 2009 @ 3:54 AM

    well, if they’ll continue this…this would be such a great shame because i don’t think they can do all the scenes in the original twilight! hmpf!

  184. Anonymous • January 5, 2009 @ 4:36 AM

    i dont think na mganda 2ng ginagawa nyo…it is stupid

  185. isnoy • January 5, 2009 @ 2:17 PM

    What about now !!!! you people shut up… of all the bad comments you stated… there’s no truth about the rumors. Leave the actors involved alone. I am Filipino and very proud of it. I’m not a fan of those actors or ABS-CBN or any other network or whoever wants to make the movie…but cannot stand those stupid comments about the filipinos or even those Filipinos itself (mahiya kayo sa mga sarili niyo at tingnan niyo ang sarili nyo sa salamin kung ano ang naitulong or naidulot niyong maganda sa Pilipinas…shame on you!!!)….so now, shut the f******* because there’s no truth about it.

  186. liezl dee • January 6, 2009 @ 3:09 AM

    asa kaung magugustuhan ng twilight fans yan.
    better not do it. it’s a disgrace.

  187. Fan • January 7, 2009 @ 12:33 AM

    hmmm… it will not come out good but hey the filipino my girl version was quite a blast, and admit it maybe your just a some kind of “kapuso” fan thats why you dont like my girl!!! twilight to takipsilim is not a very good idea but hey guys live my girl alone ok??

  188. glenda • January 7, 2009 @ 4:17 AM

    no no no no way…
    i don’t want to be rude but they SHOULD not do it because its coping like plagerizing and its stupid…just because they change the characters and the name dosen’t mean that they made it
    omg its making e so mad…
    they better not make it

  189. Ann • January 8, 2009 @ 2:18 AM

    It’s not true that there’s a Filipino version of Twilight. The people involved were interviewed and they said that there’s no truth to it. Their pictures have been photoshopped. Even the network where they work denies that there’s a Twilight version called Takipsilim.

    Wow! That’s amazing! I’m really looking forward to this! I’m a really big fan of Shaina Magdayao… She’s a very good actress… I’m begging all of you to support this! PLEASE!!! ♥

  194. Anonymous • January 25, 2009 @ 2:18 PM

    You know what, compared to the book, the orginal twilight wasnt that much of a hit either. Nothing could ever compare to the book but anyway yeah I dont understant why they dont just have subtitles? but whatever, anyway im a huge twilight fan, but honestly this dosnt really bother me, im kind of excited to see it. I hope they follow the book line.

  195. hikaruchan • January 26, 2009 @ 11:29 AM


  196. prince_aTemu • January 27, 2009 @ 11:14 AM

    well, i think most people here who are reacting are Filipinos?, know why we reacted that much?
    Beacuse entertainment companies here in the Phils ruins every story they remake…. that’s the point,..

    Many Filipinos loved twilight, that’s why they reacted negatively..

  197. rOweLyn_twiLight_4ever • January 31, 2009 @ 11:44 AM

    uuughh….this is stupid,,insane…pinoy version of twilight….duh…they’re just goin to ruin it!!!!…and please…rayver cruz as edward cullen..duh…( ugly )..shaina as bella swan..she’s not pretty as kristen stewart!!!…it’s not great!!….i hate it…i hate it…im a big big big fan of twilight..please dont ruin it!!!

  198. Pia • February 8, 2009 @ 9:20 AM

    I’m a Filipino but I think they should not make a Filipino version of Twilight….

  199. red_phoenix08 • February 8, 2009 @ 1:03 PM

    this is not good.

    i believe filipinos can make their own creative stories so why do they have to remake this awesome movie?

  200. poklo • February 9, 2009 @ 6:39 AM

    ew!!!!!!!! twilight fans like me would watch this it would be the distraction of twiligth… ewwwwwww…… yuk… what the hell nman,,, shaina playing as edward… ew,…..

  201. The FILIPINO • February 14, 2009 @ 12:17 AM

    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

  202. The FILIPINO • February 14, 2009 @ 2:50 AM

    see.. your not even sure if it is actually true
    next time check your facts before to sue someone else
