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!

    Okay, this has to stop. I also watched entertainment live and the people involved have already spoken about this JOKE. It isn't funny reading Pinoys hating their fellow Pinoys without confirming first if all of this are true. And if ever this is true, we have to RESPECT them. Fil version of twilight is all based from ENTERTAINMENT purposes. And yes, not all Filipinos are aware of twilight, because they are unfortunate individuals who suffer from the result of corruption and apathetic elite Filipino community who just care about themselves. Creating Takipsilim is just sharing what is popular to those who can't even relate who Bella and Edward are. So shut your mouth everyone and don't give a damn. There are other things in life to care for like oilprice-hike and toll fee hike. :P

    I really like Marian Rivera from the Philippines. She is so beautiful.



  3. 503

    OMG its so so so like a million time gross!!! i swear ill never ever watch takipsilim like ewwww!!!!



  4. 504

    That is so not true ! even the selected actors were suprised to see their name ! that picture of a girl was taken during her 18th birthday and that poster was photoshopped ! [according to e-live, a talkshow from the phil]



  5. 505

    guys, stop it. dis isnt true.
    Perez, i soo like ur site. weeee



  6. 506

    that's bella's hair !

    twilight the movie is so popular right now!
    that a blog made up some stories!!
    about making a tv series of twilight!!
    filipino version "twilight" is not true!!! according to the ABS-cbn network they are the 1st one who will tell people if they will make a tv series like that!!
    it's allover filipino news - it's a hoax ! the abs-cbn company just announced that There is no such adaptation by ABS-CBN channel in the works and Robert Pattinson will stay the only Edward Cullen for now.

    After the news broke on the web on numerous media blogs, Buzzbox clarified with ABS-CBN Corporate Communication Head Bong Osorio and ABS-CBN Television Head Cory Vidanes who stated, “There is no plan for ABS-CBN to remake ‘Twilight’.”

    And there you have it. Now you can safely go back to playing with your Robert Pattinson action figure…

    so guys!?
    dont believe it and stop insulting the filipinos !



  8. 508

    OMG!' leave twilight alone don't be so numb filipino don't you think that people will compare it to the original movie our local artist may be affected about the negatives feedback just translate it to a tagalog version if some don't understand it^^ oh gosh", have your ORIGINALITY filipino



  9. 509

    Even though i'm a filipino I think that this is really a bad idea. I mean, ABS is just showing the world that filipinos are like 'copycats'.
    Plus, SHAINA & RAYVER? I mean, COME ON! They could've thought of a better couple!



  10. 510

    The Philippine remake of Marimar was really nice. Marian Rivera the Filipina Marimar is so gorgeous. She is the hottest star in the Philippines right now. A lot of us here in states are big fan of her.



  11. 511

    hello!!!!!!!!it was being photoshopped.,obviously.,and shaina magdayao assured that this picture was taken during her 18th bday.,.,.



  12. 512

    idiot are those who didn't notice that this is an OBVIOUS photo shop.,.,,.hahaah.,.,



  13. 513

    To all haters, shut up. Most of the people here are right. You are either racists or rip-offs yourselves, too. But good news to everybody! This issue is NOT TRUE!!! abs-cbn confirmed this matter and the actors and director spoke themselves about it. They didn't even know anything about the rumor or a project regarding doing a tv remake of our dear TWILIGHT. Maybe this story was made by some crazy jerk who had nothing to do with his/her life. Stupid ass… or was only making up stories for his/her own imaginary 'twilight' story. We don't know. I apologize for judging. But we all judged, too. So I hope I made things clear for everybody and hope again that they would stop being such haters… As for the actors, dont blame them. They're just victims of this issue… Shaina and Rayver are great actors if you all just know them. But I prefer Jake Cuenca playing as Edward… Then again, you all wouldn't care. HA! PEACE to all racists and rip-offs and to those who care and don't care!!!

    KISS*



  14. 514

    oh puh-lease!
    this rumor is not true ok?
    there's maybe someone out there tried to photoshop the poster of twilight and made a BIG JOKE about the filipino version of TWILIGHT.

    OBVIOUSLY the poster is photoshoped, and if ABS-CBN will do a REMAKE, of course…they don't need to photoshop a poster..they will shoot on their own…ABS-CBN IS BIG TIME YOU KNOW….

    and by the way, TWILIGHT BOOK IS GOOD..BUT THE TWILIGHT MOVIE SUCKS BIG TIME!!TOO EEEEEEMOOOO!!



  15. 515

    Ugh. I'm Filipina… and I have lived in the USA most of my life… This is sooooo a bad idea. UGH. Their effects are going to be UGGGS! and ewww why did they pick that guy? Filipino dudes aren't that sexy… but there are some… hello RICHARD GUTIERREZ or what ever his last name would be better for edward… this guy is FUGS man….. Shiana has big lips already but this guy has like ten times bigger lips… I've seen him in some shows before and he's just fucking ugly…. like for reeeallll! UGHH. Shiana is prettyish like her sister Vina. Vina Morales is banging hot. Man that guy is UGGSSSS can't get over it. How is he edward?

    Why the eff is ABS-CBN doing this fantaseerya crap… it's a bunch of crap I see them on GMA or whatever and I'm just like wtf? UGHH. So glad my mom took out our filipino channels… I'd probably get pissed off just seeing that fugly guy play Edward.

    Oh and PS. Filipinos can speak english… as the language is very much spoken in Taglish and rarely pure tagalog anymore.

    Blah. It will probably be a hit in the Philippines because people love crappy soap operas with a bunch of drama there… you'll see a lot of hair pulling and evil mother in laws… I bet what their faces… uhhh Cherry Pie or some other "contrabida" will play the bad guys. UUSYFBddefljnad



  16. 516

    First of all he is fucking ugly! and she is no better.. the orginal is what they need to stick with. Why is stephanie meyers allowing this???



  17. 517

    its not even true
    …….



  18. 518

    eeewww..are they serious?!
    I am filipino and i will not support that film…
    And they are such an ugly couple.
    I'm pretty sure they dont have what it takes to shoot that film, to get almost everything right.

    Leave twilight alone.

    To the filipinos who'd love to see this film, and are against me, talk about kissing my ass.



  19. 519

    What?!?!?! are they mad?? are they trying to murder the original Twilight movie? I know the Filipinos like to make revisions and remixes on other movies but..Twilight?? They can never reach the level of effects and the scenes are way out of their league.. I don't approve of this and neither do the Twilight Fans club faculty and staff..



  20. 520

    It was already confirmed by ABS-CBN ((the alleged producer of 'Takipsilim')) that they have no plans to make the Filipino version. So, calm down, vampires.



  21. 521

    This can ruin everything… Yeah it won't be shown in the US but still.. they can try making a filipino Twilight movie and let's see if they don't get negative comments.. I'm sure..If compared to the original it won't even reach a 5 in the scale of 1-10 and ten being the highest..



  22. 522

    i h8 it!get lost & grow up!



  23. 523

    fuck the fakers!



  24. 524

    ••uhmm .. I think . I don`t like it .. It`s not just like that to make ur on version !



  25. 525

    .stupid people.
    .it's a hoax u see.
    .the picture is photoshopped.
    .the abs-cbn prod have released an official statement saying it's a fake and they're not planning to do anything like that.
    .shaina and rayver also said it's a fake, too.
    STUPID



  26. 526

    omg all of you guys are very pathetic you are exaggerated to react negative on this rumors. well,here in Philippines that rumors is not true,so many filipino artist are embarrass on this. the mere fact of this the young couple on the picture are also embarrass to that issue because they do not know where this rumors came from,maybe there is a people behind this want to make issue just to get mad of some Filipino artist. well sorry you are pathetic guys. for all your information Filipino are talented and very nice compare to other race,unlike others artist specially singer because of advance technology and enough money for budget their they will do evrything just to sell hahahahahahaha… its also the same in movie because of the effect and story,technology but the artist are not delivered well the character its very horrible hahahahahahahahaaha…….. Filipino are good whether there is not enough budget to sustain it but still they deliver well and also the same to the singers here in philippines are very excellent.



  27. 527

    Re: Feets :) – PAKI KO KUNG DI KA MANOOD?



  28. 528

    it is confirm.. that's not true…
    it is confirm.. that's not true…

    celebrate!!! lol!



  29. 529

    :P



  30. 530

    Even if its not real.. the idea of making a filipino version of Twilight still haunts me..it is like a nightmare…



  31. 531

    come on! do you have plastic eyes? the picture was photoshoped.. everything except their faces are the same with the original picture of rob and KS, even KS's hair and hands rob's neck and jacket…. so obvious that the ones who made this just cropped a picture of rayver and shaina, then basically glued it there!! and BTW, these filipino actors arent even aware about this 'remake'.. they were even shocked when the Philippine media showed them this picture.. and ABS-CBN already released a statement that denies this so-called remake.. so get over it guys!! i hope before you say rude things about us Filipinos, u make it sure first.. and oh, one more thing.. we do start to speak and understand english during prep!!



  32. 532

    Re: You like my face?

    okay…first of all, the remake of TWILIGHT IS SOO NOT TRUE!!

    second,filipino's are really good in speaking english okay?so you DON'T dare say that filipinos can't understand english cause in case you don't know most filipinos make a living through call centers around the world.

    and third, IF and heaven forbid they do decide to do a filipino version of twilight, they aren't stupid enough to actually make it into a movie!they'd make it a series cause they know that they will only be wasting money if they turn it into a movie!okay?!

    by the way I'm a filipina and not that i support this whole catastrophe of a remake,cause i really don't and i don't really like the way these actors shown above act, but I am going to defend my race against people like you. cause your not the only race that lives in this world. people should think about that before saying anything mean to people with or without colors!i mean hello?! we're all humans!no race is superior to the other we're all the same, we just have different colors and cultures!…RESPECT TO EVERY RACE PLEASE!



  33. 533

    Re: juLs_07 – actually,we learn to peak english when we start to learn how to speak cause some of us learn to speak using the english language like me, english was my first language cause my parents and grandparents spoke to me and taught me how to speak in english..haha



  34. 534

    Re: masterdeluniverso

    OMG!!thats just plain disgusting and rude!in case you have never met a filipino,we have GREAT respect for our elders and we dont sell naked pictures of our grandma or of any of our relatives!only people who are sick do that and one more thing, philippines is known to be a conservative country. go educat yourself before saying things like that.



  35. 535

    its a cute picture!!!!!!!!!



  36. 536

    I just watched a show where they denied even having this copycat created. Hopefully it's true though. Me and my friends who have read the book were so disappointed (to say the least) when we heard about this. Hope all the comments made by fans made them think twice about actually doing it.



  37. 537

    Goodness NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And im a Filipino."Cmon, Philippines! Have some originality for a change."



  38. 538

I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY ALL THESE HOMO TWILIGHT FANATICS REACTING TO THIS USELESS ISSUE…THE ABS-CBN NETWORK PHILIPPINES CONFIRMED ON THE BUZZ SHOW THAT THE RUMOR IS NOT TRUE AT ALL, AND NO INTEND TO COPY THIS DOWN TO THE LOWEST CRAPPY MOVIE…HOMO PEREZ NEED TO APOLOGIZE PUBLICLY TO ALL FILIPINO'S FOR HUMILIATING OUR ACTORS AND THEIR REPUTATIONS…



  45. 545

    that's not true. according to entertainment live that's not true. And they said that, that picture was only edited from Shaina Magdayao's debut. THAT'S A RELiEF right?



  46. 546

    Its been confirmed that its never gonna happen.
    Hah, best to open your eyes damn wide and see
    where the photoshopping happened. Yeah!
    Anyways, its best to keep your mouth shut.
    P[]E/A(C[]E



  47. 547

    Re: spexxxy
    Yeah, Richard Gutierrez looks like a vampire when you see him in person (in a good way)! That coming from my Kapamilya friend! Dingdong Dantes is sexy too as he's E! CHannel's #3 Sexiest Man on earth. TJ Trinidad and Rafael ROsell can pass as vampires too.



  48. 548

    okay okay people listen up i was watching ABS-CBN news and they CLAIRFID that it is just a rumor someone photoshoped this picture, they interviewed them both and they said that ITS JUST A RUMOR so don't panic!!!!
    THEY ARE NOT MAKING A FILIPINO TWILIGHT (YAY)



  49. 549

    I'M A FILIPINO!!!!

    OMG!!

    Who the f*_*k started this "Takipsilim" thing?

    Who's to blame?

    Who's to be sued?

    Filipinos look totally INFERIOR because of this issue in the internet…

    Our reputation and pride were slashed AGAIN…
    Although it's confirmed untrue
    it made a great perception on us Filipinos that we are TRYSTS…

    I grieve about this issue…

    ALTHOUGH ITS LATE
    magtatagalog ako ha… naku naman ang blog na to na ang interes ay ang paramihin ang manunubaybay ng blog na to ay napaka makasarili naman na laitin at gawing kahiya hiya sa mukha ng ibang bansa ang Pilipinas…



  50. 550

    almost all of da pipol hir are racist and so stupid 2 believe it easily that their gonna remake it… i mean come on it's obviously just a hoax… just da picture itself it's so obvious that they photoshopped it..



  51. 551

    who ever made this picture shame on you! abs-cbn already announced this is not true and if ever they plan to make a filipino version of twilight,they will be the first one to announce about it…and for you FLIPS who dont like it then dont watch it!



  52. 552

    hahahaha
    DONT WORY everyone.
    this isnt even truee!!!



  53. 553

    this conflict has been confirmed. this filipino version of twilight does not exist.
    yes it's been confirmed that it's not true. i even watched the interview on the cast of this version, and they even said that they didn't even know that there was a filipino version of twilight. and they said that this picture was obviously photo shopped. so nothing to worry. but if they do make a version, it doesn't matter because america also made some american version out of asian movies. that's all.



  54. 554

    Goodness NOOOOO!!!!!! And im a Filipino! "Cmon Philippines, have some originality for once."



  55. 555

    you are such a loser, who ever you are who owns this site. i've watched about this controversy on tv and i was so pissed. not that i'm against of filipino version of "twilight" but of you spreading rumors and lies on your blog entries.

    first of all, there is no truth of the filipino remake of "twilight" that would be entitled "takipsilim" in the local version.

    second, that poster is obviously photoshopped by some fans of rayver cruz and shaina magdayao in the philippines.

    third, if we filipinos do a remake of your remarkable film, i think the outcome would be a lot better than the original because filipinos are high caliber artists and and has professional and hardworking production staff and crew. besides, the rumored producer of the film is abs-cbn and abs-cbn is known as a highly commendable network in the philippines.

    other thing is, it is always star cinema, the film production department of abs-cbn, is always in charge of producing movies. not abs-cbn directly.

    lastly, isn't it the americans who are fond of doing remakes from asian movies? need examples? "the ring", "the eye", "the grudge" and the upcoming original filipino movie of iza calzado, "sigaw." the remake dubbed as "the echo." so don't diss us, filipinos. we can offer more talent than you know.



  56. 556

    Re: gwelaise
    very well said gwelaise!!!

    and i wanna clarify things up, "betty la fea" is not a mexican production. it is colombian.



  57. 557

    yes, dont forget filipinos had lot of talented guys, great singer as well, they produced new lead singer "Journey" and the 14 year old girl guest from Oprah her name is CHARICE - she got strongest voice for a little girl.



  58. 558

    Every Twilighter in the world no need to make a big fuss about this.
    It has been confirmed that this is nothing but a lie and whoever made up this BS is just stupid. I am happy they are not making a remake because it will ruin the original( my opinion). The poster looks so fake how could you people have fallen for it. Filipinos are talented and they can create a much better poster than this crap. Perez you dumbass stop lying to these people before someone beats the crap out of you. LOL!!!



  59. 559

    Thisss is just a RUMOR…
    The peoplee who is in the picture never knew about it.
    They said it was only photoshopped, so
    theres no need to react and type down NEGATIVE comments…
    Goshh can't people be nice and STFU!!

  64. 564

    PEOPLE PEOPLE!!! The issue ws cleared and ABS-CBN IS NOT making a re-make of the movie… It's just some dumb-guy-who-has-nothing-to-do-with-his-life's stupid prank..!!.. So y'all jUst Chill!…

    But seriously, ROBERT PATTINSON vs RAYVER CRUZ??… lOl!!.. It's like comparing a boat to a yacht (get the comparison?).. If ABS-CBN really was gonna make a filipino version.. It'd be a real shame.. haha.. Rayver Cruz??.. people should really find something worthwhile to do :)

    565

    This is not true…ABS-CBN announced it.



  66. 566

    GROSS!!!



  67. 567

    People need to READ other people's comments first before they start blabbing their big mouths off. I mean..

    1st: ABS CBN has denied that they are making a remake of Twilight.

    2nd: What's up with the racist comments, which target Filipinos/Asians/Whites alike?

    3rd: People who have lived a "sheltered life" in the US don't realize that they are not the only English-speaking country in the world. Most Filipinos learn English even before they start their schooling, and those who are not fortunate to have a private education learn from other resources. The effect is that 99% of Filipinos speak English. I am a Filipino living in the US, and people still keep asking me how I learned to speak English well. Sheesh. I am not being racist, I am merely trying to correct a common misconception.

    4th: If they did decide to make a movie based on Twilight, so what? Like other posters have said, Americans have done it too. However, I would definitely re-cast because I don't think those two suit the roles.

    I suggest that if they (ABS CBN) decide to make a vampire movie, don't base it on Twilight. Just make it up, adapt to suit what the Filipino viewers would be able to relate to, such as it is, considering it is a mythical story. Oh, and I would prefer Alessandra de Rossi in the lead. She's the only Filipina actress who can actually act. She's dark, and she's crude, and I think she would be better than the normal wannabes.



  68. 568

    hey guyz i just wanna clear all this things…..
    im sure you dont like about this thing,,,but ill assure that whole is just a FAN FICTION…..dis gossip is not true….the abs-cbn mgt. and also the stars involve in this thing was surprised about dis whole thing…..dey already give their official statment about this…
    and the photo…one thing is for sure…PHOTOSHOP…..
    the picture of shaina is taken from her debut…and i think the photo of rayver is taken from his previous suspence tv drama "SPIRITS"…..correct me if im wrong..

    so to the twilighters,,,dont worry dis is not TRUE…..dont be angry w/ them bcoz they are all victim of this they had nothing to do w/ dis one……

    actually im not a twilight fan…the story is very common..nothing surprise me at all…i still prefer to chose harry potter than dis….



  69. 569

    hey guys dont be so mean on rayver,,,,,actually he is really cute,,,but not on this one……and his very talented too…

    to the one who photoshop this photo u suck…next tym pick a cute photo…



  70. 570

    Many had said this before, but I don't care–you guys claiming to be Filipinos and insult our country should move out. Wherever you'll go, nobody cares. You hell. You're making me dizzy. You don't deserve to be called Filipinos, and surely, you aren't! Oh yeah, twilight is it? So?



  71. 571

    it's very STUPID to make a cheap version of TWILIGHT!!!

    it's so AWFUL…

    and..as if rayver cruz could be as Edward Cullen…
    NEVER…

    still…ROBERT PATTINSON…

    WHATEVER…
    Hu Cares..

    hu cares…



  73. 573

    i wonder who did that poster… whoever he or she is… must be a real genius… LOL… for making a big issue out of a simple project… i bet he/she must have done that out of boredom… must give him/her the royalty! for that!!!



  74. 574

    HALLLLERRR!!!!!!!! GUYS!!!!!!!! AS IF AMERICANS TRY TO MAKE REMAKES OF THE GRUDGE AND THE RING AND THE PHONE???!!! WUTEVER THA FUCK IT IS!!!!!!!!!! FIRST OF ALL, WHAT I MEAN IS THAT ALL FILIPINOS UNDERSTAND ENGLISH.. BECAUSE WERE VERY WELL EDUCATED. 2ND, ABS-CBN HAVE CONFIRMED THAT THEY WONT BE DOING THE FILIPINO VERSION OF TWILIGHT. AND IF THEY DO, THEY WILL BE THE 1ST ONE TO ANNOUNCE IT,. NOT JUST SOME BLOG LIKE THIS. AND FINALLY, FILIPINOS ARE JUST SO GREAT, WE GET TALKED ABOUT AND FEATURED IN PEREZ HILTON'S BLOG… GREAT ISNT IT…?! DIE BITCHES DIE!
