He did not reveal what Paulo’s role was going to be in the movie, however. In the FashionPulis article, it was alleged that Paulo was cast to be Jane De Leon’s leading man but it has yet to be confirmed.

It was only last January 20 when director Jerrold Tarog revealed that shooting for Darna has commenced. It is unknown who else apart from Paulo and Jane are part of the cast.
