Pinoy Twilight "Takipsilim" is a Go According to ABS-CBN News.

Good morning everyone! And what a sad morning it is with the news that yes, we are now almost 95% sure that a Filipino remake of Twilight is real. (The remaining 5% is us vainly clinging to the hope that Santa will come down our relative chimneys tonight and yell "Surprise! It's fake!") Check out the little ditty over at the ABS-CBN news site.

Filipino fans of Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" series will soon have another reason to celebrate after broadcasting giant ABS-CBN bagged the exclusive rights to make a local television series based on the vampire novels.

Initial reports said ABS-CBN paid $1 million with co-producer Ignite Media for the rights to the Twilight series.

The new series, tentatively titled "Takipsilim", will reunite the onscreen tandem of Rayver Cruz and Shaina Magdayao.

Taping for the series will start February of next year. Some parts of the series will be shot abroad and the other locations include Tagaytay, Bukidnon and Baguio. The series will be directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina.

In fairness, our Danag idea would probably be WAY more original, despite it being just a parody. Which reminds me, we called this (circa Danag Podcast Episode 1) and obviously you haven't been listening so better pay up! Haha!

I am not sure that a "celebration" is in order, ABS-CBN. But whatever. You have the money to do whatever you want, right? We just can't believe Summit Entertainment and Stephenie Meyer actually approved the idea.

Edit:
For those who want to flood ABS-CBN with email (let's hope we annoy them so much they'll veto the idea... lolz... or at the very least SPEED UP their confirmation or denial) here it is: feedback@abs-cbnNEWS.com.


Edit: Maybe the 5% will come true? This site claims that someone from ABS-CBN denied the news. However, the link to the "testimony" (which led to plurk) doesn't exist. Let's keep hoping.

    "Filipino fans of Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" series will soon have another reason to celebrate"

    Celebrate?!?!? Really?!?! As in Pinoy Twilighters would go yay-all-the-way party and celebrate because of this?! OH, COME ON!!!

    This is really pathetic. They know us fans are not going to like this at all. What, just because Twilight is "in" right now, they'll just remake it and think fans are going to love it?! Sheesh.

    If this even push through, I'm sure they will change everything in the series! *shudders*

  21. Dianne said...
     

    err, I'm not really a big fan and all but please... for the sake of christmas or anything else breathing in the world, please don't remake it. Can't you guys just come up with your own story...? I mean, it has no originality and.. ugh. Its not great, I think... I don't like it to happen... but do it if you want, who am I right?

    thank goodness no tv station in the Philippines tried to make a superhero like Batman because that would surely suck.

  23. Nene said...
     

    Maybe if we write to Stephenie Meyer that we, Filipino fans of the Twilight series, do not and did not and will never ask for this stupid TV remake, maybe she can stop this from happening. She has the power to stop this. She's the author anyway.

    hey
    is there something wromg with me
    i mean, every thoughts about twilight for me is good
    for example the thoughts of changing lautner as jacob appeals perfect for me now this... i think there's something wrong with me
    :D

    but guys bit in to the bright side atleast GMA didnt get it, i mean this is a big project and iam sure they will give the role to marian and dingdong which means we will be stack in marian-dingdong thing. you get what i mean....

    oh and the thought of shaina being bella was also a perfect thing to me
    you know when someone ask me about this thing i first thought of shaina as bella....

    maybe they can get gabby concepcion as carlisle, though

    dont get annoyed please
    i still love this project

  28. edwardlovesjec said...
     

    oh i just change my mind
    yeah i think it sucks
    know why?
    because of the special effects
    have you seen dyosa
    i hate it so much

    maybe this will turn out good if the twilighters is involve in this stuff for example, they could consider some views and ideas from the twilight people
    (may be i can be the director hahahah just kidding, i know it didnt help)

    *LEXAPRONE, that's one good plan!:D but i'm not sure if the no-one-will-watch-it plan will work because i found a site, i just can't remember what that friggin site is, and they kinda approve of the idea.

    hello, guys. i know you hate the idea. but why dont we just look at the bright side of it; that StephMeyer and Bella and the Cullens and Jacob had inspired a lot of hearts, enough to make a Filipino version. Why don't we give them little chance? ABSCBN might have a knack for changing/altering some things, but they're also known for airing good soaps, and they use good special effects. let's judge it after the first few weeks of airing. After all, if it's that bad, it definitely wont work...

    I dont think its such a bad idea. the original movie isnt even that great... Come on you guys, I know at some level if this is true, some changes may occur to the original story line, pero they have to do this if they're going to show it on tv. Hullo, i can read the whole book in half a day's time, alangan namang gumawa sila ng series good for 2 weeks.

    ang daming naging "twighlighters" dyan na ang daming sinasabi. Eh naging twighlighter langn aman kayo when you saw the movie. They have the right to do what they want, kung ayaw nyo, just dont fucking watch it. Tapos. Ang dami kasing taong panay satsat.

    I still like the idea. Shaina is not a very good actress but this character doesn't require that caliber. At least she's really beautiful.

    Ung mga nagagalit dyan, i bet inggit lang! Waaaaaaaaaaaah. Kagatin ko kayo lahat dyan eh.

If there's a petition, let us know now. THey should know better than mess with something that so many people consider precious and dear to them. But all they see is money, money, money.

    You know what? Let them run it! Let's not watch. This is just so.... ugh. Makes me ashamed to be a Filipino. Why not make their own series? Stop piggy backing on a popular franchise.

    Anon. 3 and Lara:)= I agree. Takipsilim does sounds like porn. haha!

    lexaprone= That's a great idea. But you wouldn't really know that nobody's going to watch it. I, myself, ABSO-FREAKIN'-LUTELY HATE THE IDEA. But I'm kind of curios too. And I know, somehow, deep down all of us are curios also. Remember: "curios" it doesn't mean we'll watch it. (But I really can't 'cause we don't have TFC yet.)

    And, dammit, everyone, they said the petition doesn't work. I already passed my petition the day it came out so I have no problem with that now. And I'm not really telling you to stop signing it. Maybe it does work, maybe it doesn't.

    Whoever said,
    "Robert Pattinson= Drop Dead Gorgeous
    Rayver Cruz= Drop Dead Hideous"
    damn that was funny! Oops. I don't think it was here. :D

    Anyway,I agree with the idea of flooding ABS-CBN's website with our comments. Please do that. Ha ha!

    Hoax. The perez hilton link is fabricated (the other page links don't work, the language assumes that Americans know about ABS-CBN, etc.) and the abs-cbnnews.com link to the news article is inexistent.

    Please stop spreading stupid rumors like this. The Philippines' entertainment industry is steadily improving, and having a rumor questioning and degrading its capability for originality is pathetic and stupid.

I think it will even suck more...

    I hope this blog will be seen by abs and it will not be too late to stop this taping... because seriously, IT WON'T BE A HIT...

    OMG! I really hate this!
    This is really lame.

    NAKAKA INIS! sana wag matuloy to'!!

    sigurado pag natuloy to masisira lang ang reputashon ng TWILIGHT at yun ibang makakapanood ay sasabihing "alam nila ang twilight" kahit hindi nman nila nbsa ang SERIES (BOOK)at siguradong magyayabang sila na alam nila lahat. blah.blah.blah.

    It's a piece of CRAP!
    I think ABS is soooooo desperate to do this.

    well, whatever we do, we can't stop it, i'm not much of a twilight fan, but i'm sure as hell that i wouldn't want that takipsilim on my tv screen....come on..the twilight movie already sucked ....what makes them think that creating a filipino one,,,with tagalog lines...(w/c i'm sure will be very corny and "gag"-worthy and the vomit-inducing sweetness! spare me.)

    but on the ratings thingy, i think abs did a right thing here....i mean, even if it will be bad....i know that a lot of people would still watch it just to compare it with the real thing. the same thing happened with lipgloss (you know the super obvious ripoff of gossip girl), and i don't think sm would stop this....i mean, cvg of gg didn't stop lipgloss .....and besides, it's not like they care about it or anything...


    and well..if you people are just so disgusted with the idea, then don't watch it....

    i for one would not watch it.


    merry christmas :D

    Let's just support it anyway. Let's have faith in the Filipino entertainment industry. I think they're doing their friggin' best to come up with something great, and I think they thought this is great. So let's altogether think this is a friggin' great idea.

    i hope i know what I'm saying.

    this is the most pathetic, craziest idea i've ever heard in the filipino film industry! they're so much of a loser! they'll ruin it! i cannot believe this.. not because there are a lot of fans here in the phil, they could make a filipino version of it.. damn! It's a very bad idea.. just this early, i pity them.. no one's gonna love this.. its pretty much of a waste! grrrrrr.. right now, it's getting on my nerves! it's totally annoying!

    in the event takipsilim will materialize, it will be a major SUCKfest (no pun intended)

    so... my mom's and brother's guess was true that soon there would be a Filipino version of Twilight and that it would be entitled Takipsilim..

    the idea is the worst ever!! I cannot believe they're destroying the Philippines' image AGAIN!! If we even still have an image.. urgh! I am soooooooooo pissed of at this friggin' idea!!!

    i can't find the words to say how disgusting and disappointed i am when i heard about this.. it ruined my christmas.. i'm still researching if this is a hoax or not.. or ABS finally realized that its a very bad idea, and that not doing the "takip silim" BS!

    Stephenie Meyer must have the rights for this project and should come here in phil,just incase, of course it was her book, her story. And
    about "takipsilim" it really sucks,,, do they think this project would cost them alot of money??? anyway...if ever this "takipsilim" thing would resume SM should be here [and if that's the case we'll have the chance to see Meyer, just her! nothing more]

    The news article about Takipsilim is no longer accessible. It is possible ABSCBN took it out of their website - and probably with good reason.

    HOAX!

    none of the people are bagay for the twilight movie... they don't portray what the readers see as the characters of the book and THE AMERICAN VERSION of the movie.. the movie by directed by hardwicke was a good portrayal.. the people were perfect.. i don't know about these ones they look too old (ie gabby.. carlisle is supposed to look young and this edward needs to be changed he isn't at all the way hes supposed to look he isn't that cute. and bella isn't supposed to look better than edward.. fyi..) that is all for now

    Whatever. Pressure man. A big fat flop even before it gets aired. Crazy idea. Gawa na lang sila ng mga mas makabuluhang pelikula kesa ipain ang sarili sa kahihiyan. Takipsilim, sus. Bwisit lang pati pangalan, sana umagahin yang takipsilim na yan. Tanghaliin, gabihin. Sigurado LALANGAWIN.

    i don't like this idea.
    but you know, it's up to us if we will really consider this as an adaptation of Twilight or not. (ugh! the thought of it makes me want to puke!)

    sorry, I'm a Kapamilya, but I'm never going to support this show. Never.I think it's disrespectful for a Twilight fan like me (I can only say for myself cos I don't know others' prespective on this much). So bad. Unless probably, they don't adapt EVERYTHING and make a story on their own, then, maybe..maybe, er...no-I just can't get myself to thinking I'll support this thing.

    sorry!

    please, please please ABS - im begging you with all the thousands of pinoy twilight fans - stop this nonsense!! this is not like "my girl" na you can just decide and create your own version coz it sold well to some viewers..!!

    i like abs than gma before but now...... jeez! im sure they can get the best writer, best actors out there but please, CREATE YOUR OWN IDEA and not hook something thats selling well right now...

    everybody hates the concept. please realize that. so pathetic. what a stupid idea to do a pinoy version...

    I'm a huge fan of the twilight and when I heard that this station is planning to do a remake of it, I was soo pissed...........I'm sure no one would watch it. Ang let's admit it na magiging disaster yung pag remake nila. Please make an ORIGINAL SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!

  111. 22_qcaj said...
     

    when i first heard this news i was like "are they kidding me?!". I think (if this were really true) that ABS is relly just desperate, hoping that many would watch if they'll make twilight a local tv series. totally pathetic (riding with the popularity of Twilight). I hope they'll forget this and spend their money on making a new tv show that is creative and ORIGINAL.

    God you guys piss me off. all the twilight haters simply because they want to be seen as someone who is "above all the crap".

    yeah right. i didn't like the movie. and the books were so mediocre. but please stop complaining about filipino originality... it's not as if you'd watch an original filipino movie or show if they ever produced it.

    There's nothing wrong about making our own version.

    if you have anything to voice out it should be that they do it well, not that they don't do it at all. whether you like or hate it.

    if you don't want it, just don't watch it. but as far as i'm concerned, they should be given a chance.

    late comment:)I guess this is so not right. They shouldn't adopt some outstanding films. Sa kanila un eh. hindi sa atin. if they want to have a higher viewing rates, magisip dapat sila ng ibang gawin. hindi ung gagawa pa sila ng bagong version. they should try to be creative, to be original. nde ung ganun. papangit ung name ng twilight. right guys?:]
