A Filipino version of Twilight is going to be produced for television by ABS-CBN, which bought the rights for over $1 million. Actors Rayver Cruz and Shaina Magdayao have been chosen to play Edward Cullen and Bella Swan in the film, called Takipsilim. Cathy Garcia Molina will direct the production, which is set to begin filming in the Philippines February. However, some Twilight fans think it will “ruin the real Twilight,” so they’ve started an online petition to put a stop to the production.
