Paulo Avelino has just been confirmed as one of the cast members in the upcoming movie adaptation of Mars Ravelo’s “Darna.”
The news was confirmed by Avelino’s manager Leo Dominguez in an Instagram post last week.
“#PauloAvelino joins #darna,” the caption reads.
Avelino will be joining actress Jane de Leon who will be portraying the role of ‘Darna’ itself.
Aside from “Darna,” Avelino is also part of the upcoming ABS-CBN series “Burado,” which reunites him with Nadine Lustre. It also stars Julia Montes, Zanjoe Marudo and Thai actor Denkhun Ngamnet.
There’s no word yet on when the film will start production, but director Jerrold Tarog is eyeing a late 2020 release.
