Producer Wyck Godfrey was also interviewed by the four entertainment sites invited for a set visit in May about a week after we were there. We’ve met Wyck ourselves on more than one occasion and he talks a lot. We mean that in a good way, he gives out lots of information and is interesting. he’s not a yes and no answer kind of guy. Here’s the highlights of what he covered:
* Why the production shot in Montepulciano vs. Volterra, Italy
* On whether the cast members are all locked into four picture deals.
* On actors and directors campaigning to be part of the new films.
* Will there be celebrity cameos in “New Moon”?
* On casting Dakota Fanning as Jane.
* Quantifying original writer Stephenie Meyer’s involvement in the movie franchise.
* On why David Slade was chosen to direct “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.”
* The difficulties of adapting “Breaking Dawn” to the big screen.
