The Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) is eyeing to tap Kapamilya stars Daniel Padilla, Kathryn Bernardo, and Liza Soberano to star in an adaptation of Noli Me Tangere.
"I'm [planning on] getting millennial actors that our students can relate to, modern actors like Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo, and Liza Soberano," CCP president Arsenio Lizaso said in a virtual interview as reported by ABS-CBN News.
He shared that pre-production has already begun and they have already outlined the roles that they are planning to give the Kapamilya stars.
They are planning for Daniel to play the role of Elias, Kathryn for the role of Salome, and Liza for the role of Sisa.
CCP is planning to have 12 to 14 episodes for the upcoming adaptation.
The series aims to aid senior high students when they study Noli Me Tangere.
Arsenio shared that they have already discussed the planned adaptation with Education Secretary Leonor Briones.
