Pre-production preparations are ongoing for the upcoming Mars Ravelo superhero film Darna.
This was recently confirmed by Jerrold Tarog who is set to direct the much anticipated movie.
In his interview with ABS-CBN, Direk Jerrold emphasized that there is no bad blood between him and movie’s former director Erik Matti.
Direk Jerrold explained: "Kasi kailangan ko ulitin yung script na tinatrabaho nila Erik Matti.
“So, nandoon ako sa stage na 'yon na kailangan ko siyang i-rewrite. Nagte-take off ako doon sa draft nila.
“So mula roon, kailangan ko mag-research ng kaunti. So medyo may reset nang kaunti."
Direk Jerrold also clarified that even if changes are being made in the material, Liza will still star in the movie.
"In this case kasi si Liza lang naman ang naka-lock talaga, e. Okay naman ako doon, wala namang problema."
Kapamilya actress Liza Soberano is set to portray the iconic female character, notwithstanding previous rumors that the show had been cancelled.

The filmmaker also confirmed that wardrobe alterations will be made.
"May mga gagawin pa kaming iba sa costumes, mas praktikal. Basta kasi mayroong design na ginawa yung previous team, medyo iba yung direksyon na gusto kong gawin. Kung ikukumpara doon sa nasimulan na, medyo may iba lang akong gagawin."
When asked if they have already set their target shooting date, the director replied, "Kapag natapos ko na, doon ko pa lang malalaman kung kailan namin masisimulan."
