GMA-7 acquires exclusive rights to "Shaider"
Tuesday, May 8, 2007
Shaider, or Uchuu Keiji Shaider (English translation: Space Sheriff Shaider), is a Japanese live action series that originally ran in Asahi TV Japan noong 1984. Sa Pilipinas, it was first broadcast and dubbed in Filipino sa IBC-13 noong 1992 ,then re-telecast sa GMA-7 noong 2003. It's last syndicated run was in Hero TV, cartoon channel of ABS-CBN, two years ago. It had 48 original episodes.
Tulad ng isa pang popular Japanese work na Lupin, nakuha rin ng GMA-7 ang rights ng Shaider. Isa isa ito sa mga susunod na primetime shows ng Kapuso Network.
Dominic Zapata is set to direct the Philippine version of Shaider after his Super Twins stint.
Ang StarStruck 3 Ultimate Sole Survivor na si Marky Cielo ang nakatakdang gumanap sa papel na Shaider. Ang StarStruck 4 Ultimate Female Survivor namang si Kris Bernal ang napipisil na gumanap na Annie.
Si Jay Manalo naman ang gaganap sa main villain na si Commander Kom. He will have five female assistants—four of which will be Bianca King, Isabel Oli, Arci Muñoz, and Iwa Moto.
Ang Shaider din ang magiging follow-up primetime show ni Raymart Santiago after Narito Ang Puso Ko with Jolina Magdangal.
Sa original version ng Shaider, ang main character bilang Shaider/Dai Sawamura ay ginampanan ni Hiroshi Tsuburaya. Sa Philippine version nito ay ginawang Alexis del Mundo ang pangalan ng alter-ego ni Shaider. Si Annie naman ay ginampanan ni Naomi Morinaga. Namatay si Hiroshi noong July 24, 2001 sa edad na 37 dahil sa liver cancer.
Balitang ang Shaider ang papalit sa Asian Treasures nina Angel Locsin and Robin Padilla na magtatapos next month.
I wonder what version would look like the remake, the original or the Pinoy version. And oh F*ck. It's being directed by Direk Dominic. :~)
I remembered watching Shaider on a movie house with my father and seeing the preview of Maskman at the end of the movie. Please GMA-7, stop destroying our childhood heroes. Please.
