Can you believe it's been 17 years since Pages of Life first aired?! (17 years, 7 months, 29 days to be exact.)
Why in the world did Pages of Life end?
When Pages of Life came to an end after 1 year in March 2007, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Nanda (Fernanda Vasconcellos) and Helena Camargo Varella (Regina Duarte). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Pages of Life reunion disappoint people?
Pages of Life aired from 2006-2007 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Duarte said she's not sure if Pages of Life would work today. “I don't want to see old Helena Camargo Varella,” she told a journalist (Duarte turned 77 in February). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” she added.
Still hoping for a Pages of Life movie?
In a recent interview, Sônia Braga (who played Tônia) said she can't imagine a Pages of Life reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Regina Duarte has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Pages of Life movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
On the subject of whether there could be a Pages of Life film, Ana Furtado stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
What about a Pages of Life reboot?
Recasting Pages of Life for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Pages of Life reunion, a Pages of Life movie, or a Pages of Life reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
