According to Erik Matti, his team will work on probably more than 15 costumes. But they will try to come up with the design which fits Liza Soberano.

In his interview with PEP.ph and other members of the press, he said they still maintain the iconic references adorned on the Darna costume.

“But we’re trying to bring Darna to the modern contemporary setting,” he noted.

However, he refused to divulge details regarding the designers and materials which will be used in making the 2017 Darna costume.

Watch his interview in the video provided below.

The movie adaptation of the titular comical story is slated to hit theaters this 2017.

The famous role of the Pinay heroine has been played by veteran actresses over a different generation on the big screen.

The very first actress to portray Darna was Rosa del Rosario on 1953 and then followed by another female artist such as on the following order, Liza Moreno, Eva Montes, Gina Pareno, Vilma Santos, Rio Locsin, Anjanette Abayari and Nanette Medved.

And the last artist to play the role of the female hero is Marian Rivera.

Meanwhile, Erik Matti is also behind the award-winning movies, “On the Job” and “Honor Thy Father,” which earned him nominations for Best Director in the Gawad Urian Awards and Film Academy of the Philippines Awards.
