On the 4th of July the Twilight Cast & The New Moon Cast did something good for charity in the form of the Vampire Baseball event in cooperation with the Make A Wish Foundation of Oregon. Peter Facinelli’s (Carlisle) Team “The Veggie Vamps Dancing with Wolves” beat Rachelle Lefevre’s (Victoria) “Portland People Eaters” Score 6-3.
Congratulations to all of the Vampire Baseball Make A Wish Foundation recepients!!!
Within a couple of weeks word came he landed the part of Embry Call. “My mom got an e-mail. She was ecstatic.” After speaking to the director on the phone, he was off to Los Angeles for a “cyberscan.” It’s a technique used in many movies to create real-life animation. “A machine went around my body to create a computer image so I could be transformed into a werewolf.”
“When I went to Vancouver, the first person I met was Alex Meraz. During the first three weeks I hung out with the wolf pack. We worked with a personal trainer. I gained five pounds. We all bonded and became like brothers,” Gordon said. “I’m the smallest (physically) but I’m the tallest.” Gordon is 5 feet 11 inches tall.
Peter Facinelli did a quick interview with The Sunday Post. He revealed a particular scene in New Moon that he hopes wouldn’t end up on the cutting room floor.
Are there any scenes from the books that you hope make it into the films?
For “New Moon,” there’s a scene with Bella (Kristin Stewart) where I stitch her up. I was excited to shoot that scene because it was a pivotal scene. It kind of sets up the whole reason why Rob’s character doesn’t want to change her into a vampire. I hope it stays in the movie because I feel like it’s essential and it’s a really nice scene for Carlisle and Bella; it’s an intimate thing. It’s a scene where a lot of information is being given and it shows another side of Carlisle, a soft side of him that I like. I’d be bummed if that was out.
Will we see Breaking Dawn SOON AFTER Eclipse? There has not been a confirmation from Summit Entertainment but there are rumors circling in the net about its possibility, fueled by an interview with Ashley Greene. Stay tuned!
Nadya Viasoff at Deadbolt.com reports:
One could say that executives at Summit Entertainment are obviously seeing the impending implosion of the vampire craze given the breakneck speed at which the Twilight Saga sequels are being produced. Breaking Dawn will focus on Bella and Jacob’s perspectives following Eclipse, which is slated to wrap filming on October 31 before Breaking Dawn gets underway soon after.
But here’s the funny part of the latest Twilight, Breaking Dawn news that happens on each Twilight film like clockwork:
Robert Pattinson has already signed on for Breaking Dawn but it appears that Kristen Stewart is only “rumoured” to be attached to the fourth Twilight Saga movie.
“We’re going to start right after Eclipse,” says Ash.
Apart from the movie and the trailers, Twilighters can now download Stephenie Meyer’s books Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn and The Host into their iPhone and iPod Touch.
On the 4th of July, 2009 The Twilight & New Moon cast will team up with various fansites and appear at the Vampire Baseball game in Portland, Oregon. The cast & crew will be playing for a good cause and spectators can watch Rachelle Lefevre throw the first ball to open the game. They’re working together with the Make A Wish Foundation whose main mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
We’ve seen the changes in the lives of the Twilight Cast ie we see them everywhere! The Oregonian’s Kristi Turnquist talks to 3 local actors who were part of the Twilight cast about how the movie has changed their lives.
Team Edward or Team Jacob?: Fans have crushes on both vampire heartthrob Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner), the Quileute tribe member who can turn into a wolf. “I’ve been asked that many times. My new motto is, I’m Team Berry Cobbler” (the dessert Cora serves Bella). I did get to meet Robert Pattinson a couple of times, and he was fantastic. I actually met his parents before I met him. I have a day job as an optician and they came in, looking to have some glasses repaired.”
How she got the role: “Well, I was kind of scared, because there were a lot of people auditioning, and I really wanted to get the part. I did the scene that I did in the movie, and then I did a few other things. I had to know the lines and stuff, and we had to make up some stuff. (Director Hardwicke) was really nice to me. She was awesome. My mom and dad read the books. I just had to read the sides (her lines) to see what kind of character Bella was.”
“‘Twilight’ definitely opened doors. I have a bunch of modeling projects lined up; I’m working on a poetry book;…”I’m interested in acting but also in going to law school and working for national urban Indian health care. I want to stop the trend toward diabetes and alcoholism, and the disparity in health between us and other people. I want to have my hands in the change itself.”
Sydney Morning Herald has a video interview with Rachelle Lefevre during her visit to Australia a few days ago for the Supanova Pop Culture Expo. She reveals a lot about New Moon and how Victoria’s character develops in it.
Q: How much are you in the second film?
Rachelle: I’m actually in it a fair amount… One of the thing that they try to do in the film that the fans really appreciate is when they condense a 600 page book.. a lot of it goes missing. But in the interest to keep it moving and put a little something for everyone they would also – I wouldn’t say embellish – but they certainly enlarge something that might be smaller and has a little more intensity in it. And one of the things that they did in New Moon is add some of the Victoria trying to get a breakthrough the Werewolf circle and what is Victoria’s journey in trying to get to Bella and why that it matters so much.
And they put that in the film – I am really thrilled! And its certainly very clear that Victoria is now out for vengeance and really about avenging the death of her lover James. And so I stuck very true to that…

Michael Welch aka Mike Newton spoke to MTV’s Larry Carroll and revealed some ‘New Moon Mini-Movie Details’:
Welch stopped by the MTV studios to discuss such far-ranging topics … and the “three-way date,” a scene that has Bella, Mike and Jacob at a movie theater, watching a horror film. But, in the grand tradition of such films as “The Player”, “Bowfinger”, and “The Purple Rose of Cairo,” director Weitz is inserting his own mini “movie within a movie” into the mix.
“The film is called ‘Face Punch,’”revealed Welch, telling us about the tongue-in-cheek movie that Bella, Mike and Jacob will be watching on the big screen. “It’s an action film.”

When I realized I had the attention of everybody I kind of felt self-conscience and stopped. I looked up and Catherine said, “You can do this!” and I was like, “Yes I can do this!”. Then she said, “You’re not what we’re looking for for Jacob, but you are Sam in my mind!” I was like, “Sweet!” but I didn’t know what that meant at the time.

We’ve heard news that Lionsgate might buy Summit Entertainment? Check out these two articles by The Wrap and /film respectively:
Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment are in talks to merge their two companies, according to two people familiar with the negotiations.
The plan, if the deal goes through, is for Lionsgate to buy Summit’s library of six films and the rights to the “Twilight” franchise. Early talks last year involved the merger of only the domestic divisions, under the terms of the reported deal. Source.
According to the report, Lionsgate would pay Summit an amount worth nearly two years of operation costs, in exchange for the rights to Summit’s library of six films, a cable distribution deal through Showtime, and most importantly, the rights to the Twilight franchise. Source.
