ABS-CBN says Pinoy Twilight adaptation is not true

ABS-CBN has finally decided to address the issue of the Pinoy Twilight adaptation on their website, 5 days after the story broke on Christmas Eve:



"There is no truth to the Web reports, particularly in the Perez Hilton blogsite, that ABS-CBN is doing a local adaptation of "Twilight". ABS-CBN will be the first to announce if it is, in fact doing so," according to ABS-CBN Corporate Communications' Bong Osorio.


Read the entire article here.

The parting shot (for now): In the same article, ABS-CBNNews.com claimed that they did post a story on an Internet report about the adaptation. This is the same post that disappeared from the site about 24 hours later, and that told Filipino fans that they have cause to "celebrate". Click here for a screencap of their first news post (thanks, Rome! thanks, Google!) That certainly did not read like a story about an Internet report because no other report was quoted or linked. And shouldn't the ABS-CBN News Site have confirmed the story with their Management in the first place before writing a story about the "Internet reports" so that they can clear the name of the station in the same article, thereby preventing any misinterpretations?

Nevertheless, we're glad that there is finally some sort of official word about this.

But hey, we will still be on Constant Vigilance.

    I can't still be quiet and just sit here. I read the articles from ABS-CBN site and Yehey.com written by Edgar O. Cruz. I think something is really behind these articles, specifically the article posted in YEHEY. You know, the answers of the managers of the actors are always like "Wala pang offer", "Shouldn't be revealed yet", "Wala pang sinasabi or information sa amin eh".

    WALA "PA". So, magkakaroon sooner or later? I love ABS-CBN too much but just hearing this makes me HATE the NETWORK AS MUCH AS I HONOR IT BEFORE. We are also Filipino CA students and we are starting to hate the way films and productions are made here in our country. Philippine MOVIE Industry is really deteriorating...IT IS "ONLY" saved by DOCUMENTARY AND INDIE FILMS winning INTERNATIONAL AWARDS, I must add. :(( Please have some originality. Don't do this Takipsilim thing. It ruins our ears, you know, it ruins our day. Why don't they just make an original Vamp Production since VAMPIRES ARE IN TODAY. We have our own DANAG...Make use of their [ABS-CBN] creative team's minds. They shouldn't waste it. They mustn't reuse others' ideas. They should NEVER COPY. We HATE almost all Filipino remakes - they MUST do something unique. Paulit-ulit na lang sila pati ng kabilang station. Nakakasawa na, sobra. Wala nang nabago, pati artista, iyon at iyon. Whew. What's happening?! Argh.

    *I WOULD LIKE TO GLADLY THANK TCP FOR THE UPDATES. YOU'RE DOING GREAT JOBS, I NOTICED AS I'VE BEEN VISITING YOUR SITES (including Multiply) FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS NOW.

    About this issue, I am still a lil bit uneasy...We all want confirmation that this idea won't come to real life. Really, thanks for updating us. :D God bless you.


    Yours,
    *EAP*

    whew! glad to hear this Takipsilim thing is not true. I really hope this nightmare is over.

    I'm glad we got some resolution over this whole dreaded Takipsilim issue.

    But I still wonder why they never made the official statement on TV. I mean, it's all over the Internet, right? Whenever something is making news on the net, ABS-CBN always airs the news first.

    Hmm... I guess they didn't because the issue is "kasiraan" on their part.

    (constant vigilance -> very HP. haha. :D)

    THANK GOODNESS!!! A confirmation!
    No more stufed "Takipsilim"!
    I hope they stick to there word... coz if they dont, I'll make them hear(or see) words they never want to hear in their entire life O.O

    But I do think ABS-CBN is true to their words at the moment coz I just saw a News Segment of it in TV Patrol World just now... and THEY DENY IT 100%

    What a happy new year's gift!

    *sigh of relief*
    Well I hope this gets to their brains: Twilight fans all over the world would hate ABS-CBN to death if they even tried that remake. Don't even dare because you won't get an insy bit of profit but HATE and bad criticism! Puhh-lease do not make people all over the world hate the Filipinos. No one else has the right to play Edward Cullen other than Robert Pattinson (*wink wink*) hihihi (^_^)
