OME!

Tweenies all over are outraged over news of a Filipino version of Twilight for television set to begin production soon.

Actors Rayver Cruz and Shaina Magdayao will be portraying Edward and Isabella, respectively, in the ABS-CBN production which will treat the vampire love story as "drama, romance, and fantasy."

It will be directed by Cathy Garcia Molina and is scheduled to begin filming sometime in February, in both the Philippines and abroad.

The news comes as an upheaval to Twilighters across the internet, who have started an online petition to halt production on Takipsilim because it will "ruin the real Twilight."

Oh don't worry, the American money-grubbing sequel is already working on that!

    hahahha thats hilarious. I don't think it will be that good. it's gonna have a corny story line and corny effects. I'm filipino and I dont think it's a good idea. Filipino productions need to come up with their own ideas instead of getting ideas off of other shows like they usually do..

  13. 13

    Ppl don't know the fucking meaning of being original nowadays….



  14. 14

    who really gives a shit! Just do not watch it if you it bothers you. Besides it will be hard to ruin this movie franchise, the movie sucked and still made a lot of money.

  19. 19

    um…why can't they just replace the english voice with filipino voice if people don't understand english there??!!! there's no need to make another new movie. It would suck big time!!



  20. 20

    Re: tom951

    Agreed.

    But I think the Filipinos have the right to make a crappy remake just as much as we do with our numerous VERY crappy remakes.



  21. 21

    Re: You like my face?

    Most do understand English actually. They start learning at around 6 or 7



  22. 22

    GOOD MORNING Y'ALL!



  23. 23

    Fuck. No. I'm Filipino but dear Lord, NO NO NO.



  24. 24

    Ok I am filipino and will never watch this version



  25. 25

    Fuck the tweens. Let them make the movie….and if it works, good for them. A petition? Are you serious!? I tell you some of you people can be so pathetic.
    .
    .
    Oh, and BTW: The Lost Boys > Faglight



  26. 26

    Hell no…………………… their just going to rape the movie and "Edward" is really ugly. in this movie kill him…. wow every countrys going to want to have their own twilight movie



  27. 27

    the filipino bella is waaaay better looking than kristin stewart. if they are going to replace jacob can they replace KS too?



  28. 28

    Don't question the magic in the Philippines-they did find a new lead singer for Journey there.



  29. 29

    omg. how embarrasing. edward's so ugly! lol



  30. 30

    Re: mazza_lozza – no, you know what is "highlarious", mazza_lozza, is your third-rate rip off of a man parading as a woman. next time, you might want to think before you subject others to listening to your ignorant incompetence. congratulations on proclaiming to the world wide web that you are a flaming racist.



  31. 31


  32. 32

    ARE YOU FCUKING KIDDING ME????? Did the filiponos remake Titanic or Star Wars or any other of our "great"movies??? NOPE but they sure want to remake Twilight cus it will bring in the big bucks. I hope Summit & Stephenie Meyers SUE THE SH*T out of these people for ripping off Twilight.
    As a Twihard or Twilighter I'm wicked pissed they are dissing us like this



  33. 33

    wow people are racist. its prob because most twilighters are white and they don't want to see people of any other colour portraying it. besides, hollywood ALWAYS steals famous movie scripts from other countries and converts them. in fact, they even steal real history and change it! so shut up!

    ps i'm white and i can even see right through their tactics!



  34. 34

    Whites do it all the time to Asians–copy their movies and ruin them, so it's good to see Asians doing the same for once, rather than accepting the white version. If it's not good enough to sell an Asian movie in the white west, then it's equally not good enough to sell white faces in the east. Love it!



  35. 35

    who cares, didn't we remake the ring? Other countries are entitled to make their own movies.



  36. 36

    WOW, can't anyone be original anymore.
    This is really lame.



  37. 37

    are u fukin kiddin me



  38. 38

    I think its odd,I mean its okay to have a Filipino version of it (im a filipino)but I guess it wont work..The original is much appreciated and much better..

    the picture is unattractive…

    -_-,anyways,good luck to TAKIPSILIM,HAHA.

    rob and kristen = R.O.C.K.S…



  39. 39

    Why is it such a big deal um, no one was crying when Smallville came out before the last superman movie…The hypocrisy damn let the filipinos copy that shitty ass tween crap..America copies off the japanese with their remakes and adaptations of like hmm say the ring or the grudge for example…God some need a bitch slap of reality..It's freaking 2008 almost 9 everythings almost been done already so shusdh with the originality speeches…



  40. 40

    Re: perez_reader – I don't agree. This girl is extremely typical. I could go to the mall and find a girl that looks very similuar to her. My grandma has the filipino channel and all the girls look like her.Kristen's pretty and has a unique look.



  41. 41

    SERIOUSLY! SSSEEERIOUSLY! I FEEL SOOO OFFENDED!! I'M FILIPINO MYSELF AND IIIII DON'T WANT A SEE A FILIPINO VERSION OF THIS MOVIE!

    Sorry, but Filipinos copy North Americans too much. Get your own ideas… I'm so sick and tired of seeing people with the same ethnicity of myself be the biggest copiers in Asia. SICK. SIIIICK!



  42. 42

    Re: Executive – you have never lied my man high fives to you



  43. 43

    PUTANGINA!!! I DON'T LIKE THIS! *bursts into tears*



  44. 44

    the new bella's really pretty actually…i'd have to see the guy that's supposed to be playing edward to better compare.

    and yeah…who cares if they're making a copy? many "american/hollywood" movies are copies of asian ones. get over it!



  45. 45

    Re: fluxthing – so your trying to say cause she's asian all asians look alike? but since kristen is white she is out of the ordinary not a plain jane? get serious…..Kristen looking chicks can be found all over NJ malls and elsewhere in america stop trying to hold a crackhead on a pedestal thank you



  46. 46

    you are all RACISTS!!!
    god forbid that another country remakes this sorry excuse for a movie or replaces your crackhead of a heartthrob with an actor that is of another race, other than white.
    wow, maybe you should be educating yourself on other cultures rather than wasting your money to watch twilight for the seventh time.



  47. 47

    Ew, that guy is FUGLY!! I think his lips are even bigger than that girl's! LOLZ



  48. 48

    Re: *_*B*_*

    no. they can't sue the filipinos because they always do remakes with PERMISSION.



  49. 49

    Lol anyone complaining about this is stupid. Hollywood rips stories and movie ideas from other countries ALL the time. No one is seen whining then. It's easy to complain when it's another nation but how about taking a look at how 'original' hollywood is? Give me a break. Let the people make their movie.



  50. 50

    is it going to be in english?

    and ewww that edward cullen is soooo ugly..

    not happy



  51. 51

    I wish abs-cbn would just stick to remaking those classic filipino drama movies into a soap opera rather than remaking twilight or making some crappy "fantaseryes" coz its really corny. I would rather watch "eva fonda" (this is a drama soap opera in the philippines) rather than this one.



  52. 52

    Re: perez_reader – haha! i agree



  53. 53

    NOOOO!!! FOR GOD'S SAKE!!! CHANGE THE LANGUAGE IN TWILIGHT INTO FILIPINO AND THAT'S IT!!!



  54. 54

    haha. it's actually quite a big issue right now, isn't it?



  55. 55

    I don't think they should do this. He's ugly, but she's pretty. But still, NO.



  56. 56

    Hahahahahahahaha!
    That is going to be fucking hilarious!
    Oh Joseph…Hi Jill.



  57. 57

    Re: mazza_lozza – Yeah, like all of those American remakes of Asian movies weren't huge rip offs? Like you guys needed your own version of the Ring, the Eye, etc??? I guess because subtitles aren't cool anymore, and only movies with Americans in them are interesting to you.

    Sucks when another country pulls the same shit, no?

  58. T & B says – reply to this


    58

    Seriously, is it that hard to get talented writers?
    because I'm sure many of them are struggling just to get by.

    This is too bad to be true, I'm hoping it's a hoax.



  59. 59

    RACISTS



  60. 60

    OMG. You have to be joking. It's a fake Kristen and Robert. Haha :) ) There will be a German version next. Then Duetch, then Japenese, then Icelandic, then global :) This is will cause some (brilliant and juicy) controverse worldwide! Thanks Perez :) ))



  61. 61

    remember when america BUTCHERED/MURDERED korea's "my sassy girl"???

    it was considered as one of the most beautiful romantic movies in korea but look what america did to it. TOTAL CRAP!



  62. 62

    where's the online petition?
    ugh



  63. 63

    O_O WHUT.



  64. 64

    To bad they didnt think to make it a TV series here first, they could have really stuck to the books better and explored the charters better. Even the effects would have been better. Summit really put no effort into the movie, and I dont see them doing any better with New moon… they just want the $$$.



  65. 65

    Um….LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!



  66. 66

    hey taylor lautner fans dont hate! atleast your boy can play jacob in another country if they dont pick him for this one!ha!



  67. 67

    UM
    LMFAOO
    The guy has black worms on his eyebrows..
    he's ugly as F@$@ too.



  68. 68

    Fuck Twilight..and fuck you Perez!



  69. 69

    Okay, I think Twilighters need to CTFD. I mean I take things to the extreme too when it comes to Twilight. But I'm also Filipino. And alot of you people really need to shut up. Let them do what they want to do. I don't think it's a good idea either, but still. I think it'd be funny. They do bad re-makes but it's funny how corny they are. And Americans have their share of bad re-makes as well.



  70. 70

    wow,they want to fake a movie?
    that pretty cheap.
    and it won't work because the actors are ugly…
    the person who got that idea should be careful,i would like to scratch his/her eyes out !



  71. 71

    Sounds like Racism to me. Fuck these stupid white shits that think the world revolves around the U.S. & Europe. I say go for it my Philipino Bros & Hos…



  72. 72

    I'm PINOY>… and I HATE WHAT ABS CBN is DOING… WHAT ARE THEY DOING PULLING THEIR RATINGS DOWN?

    IT's NOT THAT TWILIGHT HAS BEEN A HIT TO MOST OF THE TEENS… MEANS IT WILL BE A HIT HERE? HELLO?!?!? SHAINA AND RAYVER? LIKE… OMG!!!!

    TAKIPSILIM…. LULUBOG NA ANG ABS…. shit…

    if this is true? this is shit… like what i heard they'll be doing GOSSIP GIRL too!!! fuck.



  73. 73

    I'm Filipino and I think this is retarded. They're gonna ruin Twilight ! and c'mon RAYVER CRUZ ?! WOOOOOOOOOOOOW -______-"



  74. 74

    Apparently American teenagers heart racism. ABC bought the rights - don't be mad at Filipinos, be mad at Stephenie Meyer for being a big, fat media whore. Ha! Loves it.



  75. 75

    oh c'mon whats the big deal?american copy a lot of things from asians and the result????



  76. 76

    LOL!!! that is so awesome! And how the hell is it going to ruin the original??? They won't even show it in the US!



  77. 77

    Re: yoitspaulina
    and you are retarded crab mentality



  78. 78

    Filipino version.
    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.
    I had figured the Japanese would have a stupid anime version first. They like their women cartoonish, with giant wide-set eyes, no noses, and itty-bitty tiny pouty lips. And teens with cartoon-slut bodies.



  79. 79

    Re: elsaaa
    yes i believe you crab mentality



  80. 80

    ummm so what? is the filipino version going to be inserted in to the sequel??? how is going to spoil anything???



  81. 81

    This "petition" has got to rank up there as the biggest waste of time and effort ever. The people whining about this on this thread and in the petition seriously need to chill the fuck out. I have seen what ABS-CBN has come out with, and there seriously is no need to worry. Your precious little story/movie will not get overshadowed. If they got the rights to produce it, then let them do the damn thing! Are other countries not allowed to use the story and create something that they feel will be suitable to their viewers??
    Anyways, all you guys saying "Not gonna watch it" either have the choice not to or do not even have access to it! So it doesn't even matter that it will be shown…YOU WON'T SEE IT. All it is is an ADAPTATION for the channel. Let them do it. Seriously, relaaaaaax.
    Also, I'd just like to say that Rayver Cruz annoys me.



  82. 82

    THIS IS SOOOO JOKES!!!!! the girl is okay but WTF is up with the guy? PAHAHAHAHA!



  83. 83

    Re: You like my face?
    That's rude. Most Filipinos can actually speak English quite well.



  84. 84

    Eww, wtf. This sucks. What does Meyer and Summit have to say about this? Isn't this illegal copyright infringement shit? P.S. they are both heinous.



  85. 85

    UGHH IM FILIPINO AND IT SUCKS THAT THEY ALWAYS TRY TO COPY US. ITS REALLY REALLY ANNOYING. I JUST DONT UNDERSTAND WHY THEY CANT COME UP WITH THEIR OWN SCRIPTS AND SHOWS. THEY SHOULD JUST STICK TO SINGING KARAOKE



  86. 86

    the bella girl is pretty but WTH - HES MEANT TO BE EDWARD CULLEN??? - U DO KNOW HES MENT TO BE PERFECT?!



  87. 87

    fuck the racists.
    anyway, its going to air in the philipines so
    stop fucking crying about it being aired in the US.



  88. 88

    to everyone
    it's not true
    its just the RIGHTS to SHOW IT IN TV
    its like HBO versus STAR MOVIES on who's gonna get it



  89. 89

    Typical American response. So what! Let them do their movie. I bet they get tired of seeing white people in these roles.



  90. 90

    what ever!!



  91. 91

    I can't understand how they can do this? The poster looks the exact same as the one from Summit! How does this not violate copyright and the rights to Twilight?

    This couple cannot hold a candle to Rob and Kristen, so it's like an insult to them.



  92. 92

    ew thats weird…
    i mean i am filipino
    but i don't want them to make it lol



  93. 93

    Re: sbk_kb – why is it an insult to them? the girl ont eh phillipine cover is like 100 time better looking than "i'm a deer in headlights with no personality" Kristen Stewart..

    if only that was Rob Pattinson instead of that weird looking guy…I'd love it!

    Stupid Twilight RACIST fans..all of you wasting your time on that petition should get kicked in the kidneys…really hard…
    Heaven forbid another country decides to re-make something the US did… and heaven forbid they don't use white skinned people.
    bunch of racists!

    That girl is really pretty and she would have probably been a better Bella than that Kristen douche.



  94. 94

    Who cares, it's obvious is a brand name by now. They going to suck the milk of the golden cow ’til the last drop. If this people could sell naked pics of their grandma with a Twilight theme they would. In the other hand that's a great idea. I need to call nana.



  95. 95

    Re: jaymo82 – jaymo82, don't even begin to call yourself a Filipino. You are a fucking disgrace. how dare you insult your own people and give yourself the label of a Filipino. Your parents should be ashamed of brining up such an gago with no values. go suck the "puti" dick that you so willingly let be shoved up your ass.



  96. 96

    ew, fuck no.



  97. 97

    MAYBE NOT EVERYONE IS WHITE IN THE WORLD AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOMEONE OF THEIR OWN CULTURE??? WHO CARES!!! ITS NOT LIKE TWILIGHT INVENTED VAMPIRES!!!!



  98. 98

    look below the abscbn logo.
    there's the
    www.twilightmovie.com signage

  99. 99
