ABS-CBN to Remake Hikari Sentai Maskman?
After the brouhaha from the Philippine Shaider remake, a new rumor about a Philippine remake of one of Japan's Super Sentai Series surfaced from Mike's blog.

ABS CBN 2 will possibly remake a popular sentai MASKMAN.and guess what sure roles na for Gerald Anderson as Michael Joe/RedMask, Kim Chiu as Princess Rio and villainess Igamu, maganda ang role n ggampanan ni Alfred Martinez as Commander Sugata,syempre si Niña Jose ung mganda at matangkad sa PinoyBBigbro teen ay si MaryGrace/PinkMask and mostly si Michael De Mesa bilang Emperor Zeba of Tube Empire. Mas comprehensive and visual at special effects than Rounin because of the pure on going coordination of Japan Mazda Sentai maker of Bioman etc..ano may sinabi pa Shaider GMA 7?
For those who are too young to remember, Maskman was one of the first super sentai series shown in the Philippines with matching Tagalog translated theme songs. I think it was shown in the 1989, 1990 or 1991, the same time as Shaider.
IF the remake could match or even surpass the special effects of Rounin, then I'm for the remake. I've watched Rounin and definitely the series boasts one of the best special effects ever produced in the Philippines, and of course quality actors and directors. Rounin has no cheezy love stories and settings. The atmosphere really feels that you're watching an epic story from another world and not from a studio.
Tagalog Opening Theme
Tagalong Ending Theme
But if ABS-CBN's doing the Super Twins / Darna / Encantadia / Atlantika / Asian Treasures way... then screw you and stop destroying our childhood memories.
