    Re: Twilight: New Moon

    I had heard that they were going to Italy, no idea that the location was changed to Volterra.. that is cool.

    Its funny that when she wrote the Volterra scenes in the book, she had yet to name the city.. and found Volterra by accadent, after already naming the Voltari. There is a wonderful book club interview that was posted somewhere in one of her threads on FORT that she talks about it. I loved how she said that the town had everything that she wrote about and it clicked in to place so perfectly. She also talked about her visit there and how great the town was to her. I guess you just cant help BUT love vampires, even if they are living under your city for 3000 years, lol.

    Taylor still doesn't work for me as Jacob, but I guess I will have to begrudgingly get over that. Each time I see the movie it gets a little better.

    On the other hand I think that Nikki Reed was perfect as Rosalie. I can't imagine anyone else playing her and I hope that she is not switched out.

    AnnaLynne McCord as Heidi in New Moon???

    Ohh this is as bad as Nikki Reed playing Rosalie. Please let this just be an ugly rumor.. if not at least Heidi has only 2 lines or something maybe it will be less tragic in that case.

    I know nothing about this actress, so, I have no opinion. Heidi is such a small role though, really just walking by in the long hallway, leading the humans to slaughter so hopefully, it won't be tragic like you said FireWoman.

    Re: Twilight: New Moon

    Tantrums and tears at Twilight audition
    VANCOUVER — Tears and arguments broke out Sunday as hundreds of first nations teenagers from all over North America were turned away from a casting call for New Moon, the sequel to last year’s vampiric blockbuster Twilight.

    Some of the young people, who had flown in from as far away as Florida, began lining up as early as 5 a.m. at Second Avenue Studios in Vancouver’s Main Street area.

    So when casting assistants told the crowd at 12:30 p.m. that no more people would be allowed in the building, the hundreds left outside were heartbroken.

    Some even turned on those who had barely made it through, hurling accusations of cutting in line.

    Rosanna Razor, 22, was one of the disappointed fans who didn’t get a chance to meet the casting director.

    “It sucks,” she said. “I was here since 9 a.m. I came up from Seattle.”

    The crowd flooded to the open casting call as a result of ads posted on Craigslist a few weeks ago for “any first nations/aboriginal actors and actresses between the ages of 15 and 25” available to film between March and May.

    New Moon, based on the second book in the Twilight series, follows the main character Bella and her time spent with friend and Quileute Jacob Black on the La Push reservation in northern Washington.

    “This is more than we expected,” said Bim Narine, a casting assistant at Vancouver’s Aikins/Cossey. “It’s definitely a good turnout.”

    The fans and aspiring actors in the crowd, which ran all the way down Second Avenue and around the corner of Crowe Street, came clutching copies of New Moon and headshots.

    Some, like 17-year-old Jenny Gustafson, wrapped themselves in blankets to fight the cold and ease the jitters.

    “I’m from the San Juan Islands near Friday Harbor,” the half-Athabascan teenager said, huddled in a black-and-blue fleece wrap.

    Gustafson and her mother, Mary Long, had to wake up at 4:30 a.m. to catch a 6 a.m. ferry.

    Even though Gustafson had no previous acting experience, her love for Stephenie Meyer’s series was more than enough motivation for the trek.

    “I like any romance novel, and this one was kind of unique because of the forbidden love thing,” she said.

    “I thought something would come up and she’d forget about it,” Long laughed at the mention of this teenage craze. “I hate to get up early. But she pushed through.

    “Then again, it’s an experience,” she continued. “I told these guys around me who are getting discouraged and worried that, either they’re going to be in it or they’ll say, ‘Hey, I was standing beside that guy!’ So that’s gotta mean something, right?”

    Jason Allen, 22, a firefighter from Portland, had some friends who saw the ad and insisted he come up to Vancouver.

    He was happy he did.

    Just before noon, Allen walked out of the studio with a smile on his face, a piece of white paper in his hand and an audition time scheduled for the afternoon.

    “I haven’t even had a chance to look at the script yet!” he said, pointing to the dialogue on the page in his hand, his voice shaking with excitement.

    Allen also admitted to not reading the entire series, save for a bit of Twilight.

    However, the buzz surrounding the New Moon film—and the thought of taking a vacation from work—was appealing.

    “If I get it, that’s great. If not, I still love my job,” he said.

    Scripts were only handed out to successful candidates who met casting director Stuart Aikins’ pre-screening requirements.

    Although there was some mystery about which movie the casting call was for, the audition text, which blacked out any familiar Twilight names, was still recognizable to fans.

    One script was pointed out as being the dialogue between Bella and Embry at the bottom of page 327 in the book.

    Razor, who was disappointed about not getting into the studio, said she wanted to be one of the aboriginals to promote the first nations nationality in the movie.

    “This is a proud moment for me,” she said. “Native people don’t always get opportunities like this and I thought it would be really cool to be a part of it.”
    Well hopefully with turnouts like this they can manage to find some decent choices and hopefully, surprising newbies.

    Re: Twilight: New Moon

    how can they not think that they would have a huge turn out.. lol.

    I hope that yes, casting is better this time around.. because some of the smaller parts here in NM end up being bigger in later books. I also hope there is a better script. Better SEs and better make up lol.

    in case anyone wants to read it. Basically she said that she was offered a lot of money to direct New Moon but didn't want to due to the really tight timeline and tight budget.

    Re: Twilight: New Moon

    Interesting.. since I had read that Summit pretty much didn't want her. I was happy to hear because I dont think she was the right person to make this movie.

    Im trying to recall who the interview was with, but it was from someone AT Summit. I know that Summit Entertainment Co-Chairman/CEO Rob Friedman said that they agreed to part ways.. but after that statement another came out saying that her vision was just TOO different and that they didn't feel that they could work with her, but she is doing a Director's cut of TW with Summit and that she would have a book out about the movie as well.

    Re: Twilight: New Moon

    I've read conflicting reports as well. Didn't CH want there to be a love triangle between Edward, Jacob and Bella? She wanted to bring that out strongly, whereas CWeitz calls Jacob the best friend, which is how many of us see his character. In Eclipse, with Jacob's manipulation, Bella feels it may be more.....

    I'm excited for CWeitz, I think he'll make a good movie.

    Re: Twilight: New Moon

    Twilight is on the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly. The covery story is about Catherine Hardwicke's director's notebook for Twilight (the book is on sale in early March). In the article she says that Summit offered New Moon to her plus a big salary but they wanted a quick turnaround and the budget wasn't as big as she wanted; she chose to decline their offer. The article noted that the budget that Chris Weitz ended up getting was closer to what Hardwicke had wanted. Perhaps it was sort of a constructive dismissal from Summit- they knew she wouldn't agree to their terms and that was their way of getting rid of her yet making it seem to the public like it was her choice to leave.
