Nadine Lustre is the top pick to replace Angel Locsin in Star Cinema’s upcoming Darna reboot, as reported by ABS-CBN. Nadine leads the pack of young actresses to bag the coveted role in an online survey conducted by ABS-CBN’s Push.com with a whopping 48%! Damn, girl.
And what does Nadz have to say about this? “Of course I want [to be the next Darna]! Gusto ko, siyempre. It’s a privilege na maging Darna ka.”
“Bigyan nila ako ng gym time. Bigyan nila ako ng time mag-train,” she jokingly says. But she clarifies that no official word has been addressed to her: “Pero bahala na. I don’t know. Wala, wala. Walang sinasabi sa akin.”
Oh, and as for her love team partner James Reid, he’s willing to continue their tandem BUT as superheroes, “She’s Darna, then I’m Captain Barbell.” AWWW!!! This could totes work, you guys!
The actor, though, only had words of support for his leading lady, “She could do it. I told her she could do it. Yeah, she does [have the body for it].”
PLEASE JUST MAKE THIS HAPPEN!
