The Twilight Movie That ALMOST Was!

Here’s an interesting article found at

According to a recent interview with Hollywood Life, Twilight producer Mark Morgan reveals a completely differentTwilight that the studio wanted…..a vampire action pack movie with FBI agents!

Twilight producer Mark Morgangave the exclusive scoop at the LA premiere of Nikki Reed’s new film, Last Day of Summer, Sept. 22. “I actually found the material originally and then [sold it to MTV] and then sold it to Paramount,” he confided. “Lo and behold, six months later, after we chose a writer [Melissa Rosenberg], we did a draft and [Paramount] put the project in turnaround.”

Mark noted that it was hard finding a buyer for the script — believe it or not, nobody wanted it! “We went shopping to every studio around, but everyone passed,” he told us. “Every studio passed! Finally [Summit] said ‘let’s do it.’ It was a total blessing that Summit [chose to do the movie], because frankly, Paramount would have chosen a different director [over Catherine Hardwicke]. Their rewrite wasn’t exactly like the book.”

“They wanted to go more with an action movie,” Mark explained. “They had Bella [Kristen Stewart] fighting back. They had her father dying in one of the scripts, actually, and her becoming a vampire in the first movie. There were a lot of weird things that I don’t think they understood at the time, because the books were just becoming popular. By the time [the script] got to Summit, they were smart enough to say ‘You know what? Let’s throw out all the old scripts and let’s start from scratch.”

“[They wanted to change] everything,” he confirmed. “Ironically, I love Paramount, but I do not think they would have hired Catherine, our first director. They would have gone for someone bigger. Boys. More action. I mean, one of their drafts literally had a Korean FBI agent who was hunting and tracking vampires across the coast. There was SWAT in the trees and literally it was like, ‘Red leader, read leader 1′ and the vampires were picking them out of the woods. It would have been a different movie.”

Mark is well aware of what could have happened to Bella, Edward and the Cullen clan — and he’s only too happy that things worked out the way they should have! “[The fans] would have killed us,” he acknowledged.”They would have stoned us.”

I couldn’t imagine Twilight being done another way besides the movie that it is.

Nikki Reed Confirms That Edward & Bella’s Honeymoon Will Be Filmed in South America!

Here’s another article on Breaking Dawn, found at has an exclusive interview with Breaking Dawn Vampire Nikki Reed (aka Rosalie Hale). Hollywood Life caught up with Nikki Reed during the premiere of  her movie Last Day of Summer. When asked aboutBreaking Dawn, Nikki dished out someBreaking Dawn filming deets –

“They are filming a few days [in South America], but I’m not there,” the 22-year-old actress confirmed exclusively at the LA premiere of her new film, Last Day of Summer, Sept. 22. “It’s Bella and Edward’s honeymoon.”

We have reported on several occasions that Brazil has been in negotiations to have Bellaand Edward’s honeymoon filmed there. However, nothing has been confirmed as of yet. But we now know for sure that it will be filed somewhere in South America!

Breaking Dawn Will NOT Be Filmed In 3D!

Here’s an article on Breaking Dawn, found at

Gossip Cop has busted the rumors floating around online that Breaking Dawn was going to be filmed in 3D –

A rep for Summit tells Gossip Cop, “Neither film is being shot in 3D,” and calls the rumors “fabricated.”

And a source informs Gossip Cop that while 3D effects can be added during post-production (as they have with some recent releases), right now it is too premature to say whether either part of Breaking Dawn will be converted.

Breaking Dawn News: Casting Of Renesmee Has Already Begun!

Here’s an article on Breaking Dawn, found at

Shocking title? No? Didn’t think so. Reports are now hitting the Internet like wildfire stating that casting of the most anticipated role for Breaking DawnRenesmee, has already started. However, it has been reported now for over 2 weeks that auditions have already been going on for a couple of weeks now. BUT now ‘official’ word has been released, so we can all now jump for joy .. we will soon know who ‘she’ is going to be!!

Here is some more info via

The casting directors for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I” are now casting the role of “Young Renesmee”. They are looking for a young girl who has some acting experience and is confident on a film set environment. This girl should have self-composure, good physical posture, and be very attentive, able to take direction well, and be quick to react. They also would prefer a girl with dance training.

The casting directors are not having open casting calls for this role due to the extremely high profile nature of the project. Rene Haynes, who was the casting director that handled Native American roles for the Twilight Saga films New Moon and Eclipse, held open casting calls for the films. She was quoted as saying, “It was crazy, especially in the early days, in the first four weeks after the announcement that my office was casting these roles we stopped counting emails after 20,000. We had created a dedicated email address for the project. We got so many we had to create another one.”

After an open casting call was posted on Craigslist for The Twilight Saga: New Moon, the day was filled with tears and disappointment as hordes of teens from all over North America were eventually turned away. Since many teens came from far and wide, including some from Florida, Washington, Oregon, and other cities, the early end to the open auditions sparked a wave of emotions as tears began to flow while others in the crowd became angry after standing and waiting almost all night in the Vancouver cold for the casting call.

There are currently three casting companies working on Breaking Dawn 1 & 2, and they all have gone public with email addresses. These email addresses have been flooded to the point of becoming filled to capacity and many submissions are being returned as “undeliverable” or “email not valid”. These email addresses are likely created mainly to appease the masses and are not being used for actual casting purposes.

Eclipse Officially Tops $300 million

Here’s an article on Eclipse found at,

Here is the information from Gossip Cop:

Meanwhile, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse hit a major milestone.

It’s official! Summit Entertainment confirms the film has now earned more than $300 million in North America.

Eclipse became the fourth release to cross the $300M threshold in 2010, joining Toy Story 3, Alice in Wonderland and Iron Man 2.

The movie is also closing in on $700 million worldwide.

New Moon Makes Guiness World Record!

Here’s an article on New Moon, found at

The Twilight Saga: New Moon has become a part of Guinness World Records 2011 for its successes in the box office.

Reports MTV, “‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ earned a place in the book for having the Highest Opening-Day Gross, $72.7 million, beating previous record holder, ‘The Dark Knight.’”

The Twilight Saga: New Moon also has number one opening day and single day gross totals as well as the biggest midnight opening.

Each year, the Guinness World Records book chronicles the biggest, smallest, longest, and shortest records associated with nearly every conceivable aspect of the world, but being placed in the text is a very coveted feat, so it’s a pretty big deal that New Moon made this year’s cut.

The Guinness World Records book was released on Tuesday, September 14th.

Last year, both Twilight and its director, Catherine Hardwickewere placed in the 2010 edition for “Highest-Grossing Movie by a Female Director.”

Exclusive: Jackson Rathbone Speaks on Breaking Dawn Filming

Here’s an interview with Jackson Rathbone, aka Jasper, found at

Alice Cullen Jasper Hale Breaking Dawn Twilight Movie

Life is pretty good for Jackson Rathbone these days.

The Twilight Saga star will appear on No Ordinary Family, a critically acclaimed new series on ABC. He’ll also reprise his role as Jasper Hale in Breaking Dawn, which comes out in November 2011. THG spoke to the actor this week and asked him about filming the latter…

What are your thoughts on working with director Bill Condon?
I’m extremely excited. I think we’re very blessed to have a director of his level being in this film. We’ve had such amazing directors and now we have an Academy Award winner directing the last two installments. It’s lovely because I get to learn something from each director. Their style and the way they run sets. One day when I pick up a script and start directing it myself, I’ll have a lot more to learn from. I’ll be able to use, or basically steal stuff from the directors I’ve worked with.

How do you feel about filming in Louisiana?
Louisiana is my home state. I’m from Texas to a certain degree, but my mother and my father were both born and raised in Louisiana. I get to see family, so that means real Louisiana home cooking, and there’s a very important aspect that we’re bringing a lot of work into Louisiana at a very difficult time for the state. It’s been one thing after the other and it hurts me that things are the way they are but hopefully we’ll be able to bring a little ray of sunshine, which is kind of funny since it’s a vampire film.

Breaking Dawn comes out on November 18, 2011.

Interview with Twilight’s Kristen Stewart

Here’s an interview with Kristen Stewart, found at

Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett in 'The Runaways'

Kristen Stewart tells about Twilight, her reputation for moodiness and her rumoured romance with R-Pattz

It’s tough being Kristen Stewart. Her performance as the indecisive, lip-biting heroine, Bella Swan, in the Twilight films has seen the 20-year-old American actress emerge as a rather reluctant poster-girl for 21st-century teenage angst.

She has lived out much of her teens under the media spotlight: she had just turned 17 when she made the first Twilight film and, on its release, became an overnight sensation.

The franchise has gone on to make more than $1.75 billion (£1.1 billion) at the box office worldwide, attracting hordes of teenage fans and their equally smitten ‘Twilight moms’.

Meanwhile, Stewart’s on-screen (and off-screen) relationship with her co-star Robert Pattinson has turned her into a regular on the covers of gossip magazines.

It’s not surprising that she has struggled to cope with the media attention, and her discomfort when dealing with interviewers has opened her up to accusations of being surly and defensive. I have not found her so on the previous occasions we have spoken.

She can be unnervingly silent – she thinks carefully about each question and often has many stabs at a reply before settling on a finished sentence – but she is intelligent and engaging. In truth, like many women her age, she’s probably just a little bit embarrassed.

‘I am quite shy and people think I’m aloof,’ she explains, sitting opposite me in a suite at a sumptuous Beverly Hills hotel.

‘I get that all the time: “She should not be in this position because she can’t handle it,” and, “She is stuck up and doesn’t want to talk to anybody. She is miserable, and if you are so miserable stop doing it.”

But do you have a choice? I want to be an actor, I am just not very comfortable talking about myself.

‘When I did the first Twilight movie they were like, “Now you have to go and do media training,” and I was, “Screw you! Do you think you are going to wrap up all my little insecurities and throw them out the window?

Do you think you are going to put soundbites in my mouth? I’ll do your course, but that’s not going to happen.’

And she is, indeed, refreshingly soundbite-free and unashamed of her insecurities.

She smokes one cigarette during our interview (‘I’ve pretty much given up’) and describes her outfit – her slender form is wrapped in a combo of black skinny jeans, black T-shirt, red checked shirt and open-top ankle boots – as ‘just cookie-cutter, really,’ claiming that ‘everyone’s wearing these boots’.

Stewart is by far the most accomplished young actor in the vampire- and werewolf-infested world of Twilight, eclipsing both Pattinson and their muscle-bound co-star Taylor Lautner.

This may be thanks, in no small part, to the fact that she already has a decade’s experience in front of camera.

In 2002 she was cast as Jodie Foster’s diabetic daughter in Panic Room and went on to take roles in Speak (2004), playing a 13-year-old traumatised into silence after enduring sexual abuse, Into the Wild (2007), directed by Sean Penn, and the offbeat comedy Adventureland (2009).

The actress’s most recent release in Britain, meanwhile, The Runaways – a biopic of the all-girl 1970s rock band fronted by Cherie Currie and Joan Jett – only confirms her status as the hottest young talent in Hollywood, offering up a character that fits Stewart like a leather glove.

She plays Joan Jett, a brooding adolescent who ripped up the rulebook when she and the music impresario Kim Fowley launched the Runaways’ three-year career, which finally imploded amid a blizzard of drugs and recrimination.

The film, in which Stewart shares some sapphic moments with her co-star, 16-year-old Dakota Fanning, was first screened at Sundance earlier this year, but, though it earned plenty of critical plaudits, it bombed at the American box office, recouping barely a third of its estimated $10 million budget.

‘The Runaways started everything for chicks in rock and roll,’ says Stewart. ‘So many women in bands say, “I’m in
a band because of the Runaways.

It was initially a small movie, then because of the whole Twilight thing it got a lot of attention. I now know Joan and I have a relationship with her, and if we didn’t do a good job everything would fall away, so it was important we got it right.

‘I felt comfortable in Joan’s clothing,’ she says. ‘It’s like armour. Punks put it on because they are protecting themselves, because they are outsiders, and because they are fighting something.

And it’s weird – I did a lot of press for the second Twilight movie when I was shooting The Runaways, and I was feeling a little insecure, which doing those press things makes me, and I didn’t go to my normal defences, I went to Joan’s.’

Having met both women, I suggest that their defences are actually quite similar. She fiddles with her long dark hair and ponders this.

‘I wore a T-shirt in kindergarten that said kick butt first. ask names later on the back,’ she says suddenly. ‘I just thought of that randomly, sorry, but I think it might show that I’ve always been overly indignant in my reactions to not being able to be myself.

And when other people are in that position I get enraged, too, so I think that I share that with Joan. I’m a bit easier than Joan, although she’s really thoughtful and quiet underneath.

With everything she wears she’s not trying to be cool, she is trying to be tough, she’s compensating. At the time, it wasn’t normal to do what she did and she was always told, “You’re not right, you’re different, so you’re a bitch.’

It is a line with which Stewart can empathise. She grew up in Los Angeles, her father a television producer, her mother a script supervisor, and started acting at a young age.

At nine she was cast in a film for television, The Thirteenth Year, and a year later appeared in The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas. She found her peers’ reaction to her experience somewhat difficult.

‘I didn’t walk around talking about doing movies,’ she says, ‘but then someone saw an old movie I was in, The Safety of Objects, and realised that the little boy in it [she played a tomboy] had grown up into this girl – me. And then I got a lot of, “She’s such a bitch!”

And yet most of these kids had never even spoken to me.’

She left high school when she was 13, unable to balance the pressures of a burgeoning professional life with a full-time education – ‘I was glad to leave school.

I was missing a lot of classes and they were failing me’ – and says that she does not feel as though she was deprived of a normal childhood (she’s since completed her high-school education via correspondence courses).

‘I couldn’t relate to kids my own age,’ she says. ‘They are mean and don’t give you any chance. Once you have done with school, you realise that it is just a smaller version of life, and really I have felt that I should have been an adult since I was aged about five.

I remember when I turned 18 everyone asked me if I felt more mature, but I felt the same as I always did. Juggling work and school, and helping my mother; I’ve always had a lot of responsibility.’

She remains close to her parents and talks fondly of her mother, who studied history and has a passion for vampires; she has even written a script about Vlad the Impaler.

‘She was so excited when I got the Twilight gig,’ says Stewart. ‘My whole family were. Before Twilight they were like, “Why are you doing all these Sundance movies that no one will see?’

S tewart is less forthcoming about her relationship with her co-star Robert Pattinson.

The very first time I met Pattinson, before the original Twilight film, he enthused about her and laughed about the rebuffs he got when trying to ask her out (Stewart was dating Michael Angarano, her co-star from Speak, at the time).

Since then the pair have become a couple, although neither one has gone on record to confirm it.

The last time I saw Stewart and Pattinson was at this year’s Bafta dinner, where they sat together and left together. They definitely acted as a couple.

‘It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve spoken to someone or how well they know me, I’m just not going to talk about that,’ she says when I ask.

‘But it is weird with the paparazzi,’ she continues. ‘We are not on the top of the paparazzi list, but it is definitely tougher for Rob.’

The pair looked to have been rumbled when a photographer caught them cosying up on the Isle of Wight over New Year.

‘That was some kid, not paparazzi, who took that shot,’ she says, smiling. ‘That’s the kind of thing that just baffles you. I can’t believe that came out.’

She says that she finds London an easier place to roam than New York or Los Angeles, and concedes that she can no longer live a normal existence in her home-town.

‘I have friends who say, “Hey. We are in a restaurant today. Want to come? A bunch of us are hanging out?” And yet I am like, “Do you want to go to someone’s house? It would be so much more fun.

Bring everyone round to my house!” It is weird never to be just some girl. Everybody knows me so I can never be just a new person with somebody. New people always have an impression of me and I am so aware of it, and it probably changes me.’

Her hobbies, she says, are simple. Along with her interest in the guitar, she’s an avid reader and likes to write (‘not stories per se, just thoughts and bits of prose’).

She also adores her cat, Max, who is ‘insane. He’s like the antichrist when I try to travel with him. I like to take him with me when I’m away filming.’

Stewart is currently shooting an adaptation of On the Road, directed by the Brazilian film-maker Walter Salles. ‘I play Marylou and I am f–ing freaking out about it. Nobody has ever tried to make it and yet, reading the book, it is insanely iconic.

It is my favourite book. It is so f–ing cool that I am doing it. A friend introduced me to it when I was 14 and I have read it a couple of times.’

When that finishes she’ll begin work on the final chapters in the Twilight saga (the novel Breaking Dawn has been divided into two films).

‘With Twilight we all really got lucky. It is a rare thing on a movie, when it hits and it gives you freedom. Because of Twilight I could make a film like Welcome to the Rileys.’

Yet to be released in Britain, this indie film, produced by Ridley Scott, sees Stewart play a prostitute. ‘I’m happy that people might think, “Let’s go and see that Twilight girl in a stripper movie!” I’m cool with that.’ Perhaps being Kristen Stewart isn’t so tough, after all.

The Top 5 Extras We REALLY Want From the ‘Twilight: Eclipse’ Blu-ray

Here’s an article on the Eclipse Dvd, found at


What’s a Twilight fan to do during the long, agonizing wait until Breaking Dawn Part 1 hits theaters in November 2011?

If you’re like us, you’re obsessing over the newly announced home video release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which hits shelves December 4, 2010 packed with special features, commentaries, and more on DVD and Blu-ray.

In fact, the list of extra material was so tantalizing that it momentarily distracted from reading the Stephenie Meyer-endorsed The Hunger Games, and we started thinking… what do we really want to see in the Eclipse bonus features?

The Gore We Were Promised, Kinda

Eclipse director David Slade, who made all sorts of delicious red stuff spill in the snow in his other vampire flick 30 Days of Night, kept things pretty PG-13 for the Twilight crowd. But back in June, he told us that at least one of his vampire battle decapitation shots was too hot for the MPAA’s sensibilities. (“We had this one part in the battle where Emmett just tears someone’s face off,” he said. “The face kind of breaks off into pieces of crystal that shatter.”)

Will we get to see extended, unused footage of Emmett ripping some vampire faces off on Blu-ray, even if they shatter bloodlessly like pieces of marble? Let’s hope.

What Rosalie Did to Those Horrible Old-Timey Men

In Eclipse, stiff old Rosalie (Nikki Reed) finally got to loosen up a bit, telling her origin story in flashback: After being raped by a gang of men and left for dead, she returns newly vampirized like a bride from hell to wreak bloody revenge on her attackers. In other words, it’s Rosalie’s I Spit On Your Grave moment — and we’d like nothing more than to see a deleted scene of her tearing that cad Jack Huston limb from limb.

Victoria and Riley’s Vampire Love Nest

There were no indications that they’d shot such a scene for the film, but this being our fantasy list ofEclipse bonus material, we wish we could get a peek at Victoria’s hidden love nest as described in the spin-off novella The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. (Read our book review here.) This is where Riley has his sexy rendezvous with Victoria and where he gets his orders to lead the newborns to the fight in the clearing, unaware that he’s just a pawn in Victoria’s game, and it’s also where more than one unfortunate young bloodsucker meets their end.

(While we’re at it, we’d LOVE to see more of Jodelle Ferland as Bree, the confused newborn given a second chance by Carlisle who meets her fate at the hands of the Volturi. Bree’s first kill, her adventures with her ill-fated mate, Diego, even her last-act psychic exchange with Edward Cullen — they’re all fascinatingly drawn events in Meyer’s supplemental novel that would be nice to see included in the comprehensive filmed version of Eclipse that, alas, only exists in our minds.)

Taylor Lautner in That Infamous Spandex Wolf Suit

Our fingers are crossed the hardest for a glimpse of Taylor Lautner in the gray spandex suit he wore on set to help co-star Kristen Stewart visualize Jacob in wolf form. Slade described the scene: “He came in and he put out his fist, and she kind of nuzzled his fist and stroked his hair.” Somewhere in the Six-Part Making-of Documentary included on both the DVD and Blu-ray editions, there’s got to be at least one shot. Forget those silly jean cut-offs. The fans demand Taylor in spandex!

Last But Not Least, We Want To See KStew and RPattz Confirming Their Love on the Record

Hey, don’t judge. Who among us won’t be listening hard to the Kristen Stewart-Robert PattinsonEclipse commentary track for clues and dead giveaways or some public acknowledgement of their alleged off-screen relationship? Expect the same kind of awkward, random banter from these two that we got on the first Twilight release, in which they shared a commentary track with director Catherine Hardwicke — especially when it comes to the fan-favorite “leg hitch” make-out scene, the tent scene, and KStew’s hot and heavy lip-smacking scenes with both of her leading men.

For now, we’ll have to wait and see if any of our Eclipse Blu-ray wishes come true… check out the announced list of extra features below and mark your shopping calendars for December 4, 2010…

Twilight Behind the Scene-On the Set 19

But I might even find more later. But here they are. I do not own anything. I have gained all of my photos from several sources. Enjoy!
