ABS-CBN said there is no truth to the rumor that they are doing a local television version of the hit novel and movie 'Twilight'.
Last week, abs-cbnnews.com reported the local television adaptation but according to ABS-CBN Corporate Communications� Bong Osorio "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."
The so-called local television adaptation was supposed to be called 'Takipsilim' with Shaina Magdayao and Rayver Cruz as the lead stars. According to the report by abscbnnews.com, the rights for the tv remake of Twilight was bought by ABS-CBN for the price of 1 million US Dollars with Ignite Media as co-producer.
It was also mentioned in the article that the taping of Takipsilim will begin in February 2009 with Cathy Garcia-Molina as the director.
After the rumor was published in the popular Perez Hilton blog, Twilight fans all over the world reacted negatively with 7,600 entries in the petition against the Filipino version of the vampire film.
