Erik Matti has officially dropped out of the upcoming Darna film that he had been slated to direct, ABS-CBN Star Cinema announced today.

The statement cited the same old reason: creative differences.

"ABS-CBN, Star Cinema, and director Erik Matti have mutually decided to part ways in the filming of Darna because of creative differences and to allow the filmmaker to work on his other projects under his own production company Reality Entertainment.

"ABS-CBN and Star Cinema, however, are fully committed to bringing the iconic character to the big screen for today’s generation of moviegoers to witness the story of the well-loved Pinoy comics superhero. The new Darna director will be announced soon."

The upcoming Darna film was first announced in 2014, with Angel Locsin slated for the role of the titular heroine. Then in 2017, to the excitement of fans, it was announced that Liza Soberano would play Darna instead.
