Director Erik Matti who was supposed to be the director of the upcoming movie adaptation of ‘Darna’ shared his personal pick to be the next Pinay superheroine after actress Liza Soberano announced that she will no longer be part of the project.
In his interview with Ricky Lo for philstar.com, the director shared his personal pick for the role and mentioned how actress Nadine Lustre would be his only choice if not Liza.
He said: “After her [Liza], I only see Nadine Lustre so far as someone who can be Darna. Very sultry. She has a lot of female sensuality and at the same time still looks tough and very Filipina. The key to casting Darna has always been someone who can look plain and ordinary in her Narda alter ego but can be tough, spunky and can be very sexy as well when she transforms to Darna. Nadine can look all of that.”
Matti has been replaced by Jerrold Tarog after the former announced last October 2018 that he will no longer be directing the movie.
