Filipino fans of Shaider have the reason to jump for joy as the Philippine remake of Shaider has been scrapped. The original owners of Shaider revoked the rights for a remake after supposedly reading all the negative reactions of fans when the news of a remake was announced.
But this wouldn't stop GMA-7 from releasing a Shaider series. According to the article from Philippine Entertainment Portal, GMA-7 would be releasing a series based on Shaider and it will not be a remake of the original but more of like a sequel or side story of some sort.
Napag-alaman ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) na hindi na pala matutuloy ang paggawa ng Philippine version ng Shaider, na matagal nang nababalitang gagawin ng Kapuso Network.
Ang dinig namin, hindi pumayag ang may-ari ng rights ng Shaider sa Japan na gawin ang local version nito sa Pilipinas.
Rumored title of the show surfacing the internet is Pulis Pangkalawakan (Space Police).
Ang magiging titulo nito ay Pulis Pangkalawakan (Descendants of Shaider). Tentative pa lang ito and so are the cast. May nakapagsabing Shaido raw ang magiging final title.
Nandito pa rin si Marky Cielo, but not as Shaider anymore and he won't be the only lead star. Makakasama na niya sina Dennis Trillo at Raymart Santiago.
Also in cast are Diana Zubiri; Lovi Poe; StarStruck 1‘s Dion Ignacio; StarStruck 2's LJ Reyes; Starstruck 3's Iwa Moto, Arci Muñoz, and Vaness del Moral; Starstruck 4's Aljur Abrenica and Kris Bernal; Ian de Leon; Paolo Ballesteros; Karel Marquez; at si Jay Manalo still playing the lead villain.
Sina LJ, Iwa, Arci, and Vaness ang gaganap na mga Amazonas.
Pulis Pangkalawakan will be directed by Dominic Zapata.
Shaido? Can't they think of another catchy name? And I thought the SEXBOMB GIRLS are the Amazona villains. Anyway, the new show will just be another rip-off from our favorite director :)
UPDATE: According from a RELIABLE source... it seems that the final title of the show would be PANGKAT PANGKALAWAKAN :~)
