Posted on January 16, 2013 | 10:57 AM

ABS-CBN will finally air this 2013 the much-awaited Pinoy remake of one of the most-loved Mexican telenovela, Maria Mercedes. The series aired on ABS-CBN from August 1996 to April 1997. 

Maria MercedesWho will play Maria and Jorge Luis in Maria Mercedes Philippine Remake?

Maria Mercedes is the first of the "Marias" telenovela trilogy followed by Maria la Del Barrio and Marimar, all of which starred Thalia. It is a story of a poor girl who is abandoned with her brothers and sister by her ambitious mother. Because of the lack of support from her perennially drunk father, she is forced to raise her brothers and sister on her own, working in the streets of Mexico City selling lottery tickets and flowers. Maria will fall in love with a rich guy named Jorge Luis.

ABS-CBN is already done remaking Maria La Del Barrio which was topbilled by Erich Gonzales and Enchong Dee while GMA had Marimar (initially for Angel Locsin before she transferred to ABS-CBN) which launched the career of Marian Rivera. Now, it's time for another Maria to hit Philippine television.

There are no reports yet on who will play the title role of Maria Mercedes but last year, it was rumored that Andi Eigenmann will be playing Maria with Martin del Rosario as his leading man.

There are also reports claiming that Angel Locsin will be playing Maria Mercedes while Jericho Rosales will be playing her leading man Jorge Luis. However, all of these are mere rumors and no official confirmation yet from the network on who will be playing the lead roles.

According to byxspeaks, auditions are now being held for the other characters in the remake of Maria Mercedes, which will air sometime soon in 2013.

Are you excited for Maria Mercedes Pinoy remake? Who do you think will fit the role of Maria?
