Lainey Reports: "Last night the Twilight Eclipse crew was back to work shooting under a bridge - a “Seattle” scene with Bryce Dallas Howard and Xavier Samuel as “Victoria and Riley”. Victoria seduces Riley so that he’ll carry out her orders to make new vampires. As you can see, they’ve wigged out Bryce’s hair to resemble Rachelle Lefevre’s".
CanMag Reports -Fans of the Twilight books kind of know what to expect from New Moon. Edward takes off, Jacob steps up and wolfs out. Still, Taylor Lautner thinks there are some surprises in store.
Taylor Lautner on The Twilight Saga: New Moon “I honestly don’t think they’re expecting to be as heartbroken as I think they will be,” Lautner said. “I know when I read New Moon I really felt bad for Jacob’s character and Bella’s just because Jacob can’t have her and he’s trying to get her and everything that’s going on and her being torn and confused. So I felt really bad but actually when I lived the experience with Kristen, it was much worse and I just can’t imagine what the fans are going to think when they watch that.”
For people who haven’t read the books, and just wait for the movies, Lautner has a sales pitch too. “Somebody like me would enjoy the action because I love action movies and New Moon takes that to another level than Twilight was. That, and it’s a lot more complicated this time around. It takes what her and Edward developed in Twilight and it smashes that at the beginning and then it becomes complicated until the end of the movie.”
After Twilight, there were rumors that Lautner may be recast. He took on an exhausting workout regimen to ensure he would continue playing Jacob.
And, as the promiscuous Mallory, she even offers to service The Sopranos star.
Reports suggest Stewart walks around naked in many scenes and was so terrified of stripping on camera she insisted Twilight co-star and pal Nikki Reed join her on the set of the film in New Orleans, Louisiana.
In a recent interview with About.com, Reed said, "I’m going with Kristen to New Orleans... while she’s shooting and I’m a good support system... I have to go to be with Kristen."
And now Stewart is talking about the project, telling WENN she thinks the film will be a hit - because Twilight fans will want to see what she looks like naked. She explains, "It's an independent movie that nobody would normally see and now it’s like, 'Oh, let’s go see Bella (Twilight character) in this stripper movie; it’ll be crazy!'"
And Stewart admits the shoot was a blast: "Working with James Gandolfini and (co-star) Melissa Leo, who is just incredible, was the most fruitful life-changing experience on a movie that I've ever had. "It was just the hardest subject matter I've ever had to deal with - I play a very broken young girl who is a runaway. She’s a street kid. She’s working in a strip club and James Gandolfini’s character is just as dead inside as she is - and they wake each other up."
The Examiner reports:
The Twilight Saga: "New Moon star Jackson Rathbone might've gotten all the fight training he needed for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse in filming his M. Night Shyamalan movie The Last Airbender. He sat down with MTV to discuss The Last Airbender, and had a lot of very interesting things to say about the physical activity that he was responsible for in bringing his character Sokka to the big screen - especially when it came to fight sequences.
Jackson - "Jasper is so composed and kind of holding it all back, so getting to play a character where I can just run into people was great! I got to do this fight scene where I get attacked by three different people at the same time; I’m running through a battle trying to find my little sister, worried about where she is, and this guy charges me with a sword!
So, I make the split decision to just tackle him, take him straight to the ground, and then someone else comes behind me and tries to slash me in the back - so I pull that guy over me, and he hits his own guy."
This sort of triple threat scenario is exactly what we should expect when it comes to some of Jasper's flashback sequences in Eclipse. Not to mention, when he joins his Cullen family members and the wolfpack on the battlefield with Victoria's newborn army, he will be the ringleader in waging war upon the looming threat issued by many other vampires.
That said, perhaps Rathbone isn't suffering the same issues of endurance mentioned by his co-star Ashley Greene and others as a consequence of the recent fight training they were subjected to. In either case, since The Last Airbender and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse open back to back in the summer of 2010, it seems we'll get a double dose of Rathbone in action - literally.
28 year old Boston native Julia Jones has just been cast as Leah Clearwater in the upcoming Twilight saga “Eclipse” (due out June 30 2010). SEGN.com reporter Nick Rico was the first to talk with Julia about the news. Some Highlights from the interview -
On Vanessa Hudgens rumored to be auditioning as Leah: “No. No truth to that.”
Audition Process: “It wasn’t too tricky. David (Slade) really spent some time working on the character with me.”
When she found out she got the role: “Maybe the last day of July”
On reading the books: “I got very obsessive and went through all 4 of them. In the last week and a half, I’ve read the first 3. I just finished Eclipse today. I think the books are incredible. Stephenie Mayer managed to capture a level of humanity, especially with Bella’s character. Her inner thoughts are the similar thoughts you’ve had in similar situations but they’re so deep down, ones that you sometimes don’t even admit to yourself.”
