Apparently, lumalala ang sakit sa likod ni Angel kaya naman she will never be able to do the much-awaited Darna movie.
In a press statement made by ABS-CBN and Star Cinema it said:
“It is with deep regret that we announce that ABS-CBN, Star Cinema, and Angel Locsin have mutually agreed that Angel will no longer do the “Darna” movie due to health reasons. Because of her passion, dedication, and commitment to the project, she underwent various rigorous training regimens for two years. Unfortunately, this led her to developing a disc bulge in her spine. This then limits her from doing strenuous activities such as stunts, liftings, and the usage of harness, all of which will be required of her for the action scenes in the film. Aside from that, she will need to undergo rehabilitation and treatment.
“And so while we have envisioned her to do the iconic Filipino heroine, Angel’s health and safety are both our primary concern. Hence, the decision.
“Fans need not worry. They can still look forward to seeing her in a movie that she is currently shooting with Vilma Santos. Angel’s physical condition does not prevent her from finishing the said project.
“Again, we sincerely thank Angel for her hard work and pray for her recovery.”
Todo-support naman si Luis Manzano kay Angel when he tweeted, “Health first! :) i’m sure she has another big project coming up soon! :)”
With Angel’s absence, baka tuluyan nang ibigay kay Liza Soberano ang role. Maraming fans niya kasi ang nagme-message sa Facebook na gawin niya ang Darna movie dahil bagay ito sa kanya. Kung matutuloy, aba, siya na ang pinakamagandang Darna.
