Tarog officially became part of “Darna” in October 2018. He replaced original director Erik Matti, who departed from the project due to “creative differences” with producer Star Cinema.

Actress Jane de Leon will be playing the titular role, and Tarog had described her as an “instinctive actress.”

De Leon, 20 and an exclusive talent of Star Magic, has appeared in a number of TV projects, including "Halik" where she played Jericho Rosales's sister Maggie Bartolome.

She also appeared in 2017 fantasy drama series "La Luna Sangre" as one of the moonchasers.

She was also part of the girl group Girltrends of "It's Showtime."
