    The call for auditions comes months after Liza Soberano, who was originally set to star in the film, backed out over a reported finger injury. We also remember Erik Matti, Darna's supposed slated director, having dropped off the project October of last year due to creative differences. He was then replaced by Jerrold Tarrog shortly after.
