Paulo Avelino is confirmed to play the leading man of Jane de Leon in Star Cinema's adaptation of Darna.
This is according to a post by Paulo's manager, Leo V. Dominguez, on his Instagram account last February 6.
Dominguez posted a screenshot of a report from a showbiz blogsite, which reported that Paulo is Jane's leading man in Darna.
Paulo's manager simply wrote in the caption, "#PauloAvelino joins #darna"
Paulo is the second confirmed cast member of Star Cinema's Darna.
In July 2019, ABS-CBN announced that Jane is taking over the role of Darna, after Angel Locsin and Liza Soberano both backed out from the project.
At one point, it was even rumored that Tony Labrusca will play Liza's leading man after he was seen in a meeting with Darna's former director, Erik Matti.
Jerrold Tarog is now the director of Darna.
Tarog recently announced that they are already in the seventh shooting day of Darna, according to his post on Instagram last February 7.
