From Pulis Pangkalawakan to San Martin de la Costa

Just when Team Sugoi thought that GMA 7 has maxed out and eventually will go back to your usual heart-gripping dramas, (Well, we can dream, can’t we?) comes another surprise.

The rumor mill (a.k.a. local tabloids) has it that GMA is remaking Marimar. And who else but to take the title role but their primetime favorite, Angel Locsin.

Angel Locsin as Marimar?

Excerpt from People’s Tonight, May 16, 2007
Hindi na naghirap ang GMA-7 sa paghahanap ng actress na gaganap sa Pinoy version ng Marimar dahil kay Angel Locsin nila ibinigay ang project.


Who’s playing Sergio? Who’s playing Corazon? Who’ll voice Polgoso? Will he even talk like the talking piggy in that Sailor Moon rip-off-but-not-really-or-whatever?

Wait, I think the best question to be asked here is: “What great show from my childhood is next in line?!??”

  1. I will be waiting for that where Angel will dress-up like the pic above left for the obb/cbb.


  2. Ambilis, Hoto-chan! Hehehe mamaya ko pa ipo-post yung sa akin. Hahaha! Magugulat sila lalo 😛

  3. Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs? With Richard Gutierrez as Saber Rider, Dennis Trillo as Fireball, and Robin Padilla as Colt? XD

  4. … Dennis Padilla as Colt?!? O_o

    Isn’t Colt some boy genius driver, the youngest champion race car driver ever? O_o

    That was the sound of my brain leaking from my head.

  5. Dennis Padilla? Robin daw.

    Di pwede si Dennis kasi iniwan na siya ni Marjorie. Tsaka depressing yun kapag si Dennis.

    Binoy for Colt!

  6. Dennis Trillo as the race car driver. Robin Padilla as the cowboy dude.

    Though Dennis Padilla as any of those guys is a good idea. XD

  7. ****

    That goes to show I shouldn’t be commenting 5 minutes after I wake up. Seriously.

    And Fireball *is* the race car driver. I guess I was still dreaming. Should’ve glanced at wiki first T_T

    *hides in shame*

  8. parang ang pontless naman na i-remake ang marimar.. i-replay na lang nila!! XDDDD

  9. Brilliant idea. We could have Sergio’s chest hair in dreadlocks for effect. Dennis Padilla can play Pulgoso himself.

  10. Still vouching for an opening credits where she wears nothing but sea shells.
