From a goddess to a snake queen -- that seems to be the fate of Anne Curtis as she is being tapped to play the lead role in Anak ni Zuma. In a Journal Online report, ABS-CBN has already brought the rights of Anak ni Zuma from its maker Jim Fernandez who's currently in the United States.
Zuma has been a popular comic character in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The intensity of its popularity propelled two Zuma movies in the 1980s. In the Anak ni Zuma sequel, Snooky Serna played the role of Galema, the daughter of Zuma. Many people are excited that Jim Fernandez gave the TV rights of the Anak ni Zuma to ABS-CBN.
In that same Journal Online report too, the article declared the Zuma maker Jim Fernandez is allegedly seeking legal action towards Zuma movie remake wherein Dingdong Dantes plays the title role and Carlo Maceda is one of the producers. It appears that the film rights for the Dingdong Dantes movie have not been ironed out yet. We hope this can be done immediately as the Zuma film is reportedly scheduled on December 2009 in time for the Metro Manila Film Festival!
