Movie News

Cam and Taylor made this years breakout stars list on The Daily Beast.


The Twilight DVD has a release date in Australia.


We’ve been getting a lot of repeat questions in our mailbag regarding New Moon, so we thought it might be a good idea to do a recap.

USA/Canada release date

  1. November 20, 2009
  2. This date as with any movie date is subject to change based on filming, marketing, any number of factors.

Chris Weitz

  1. Is hired to direct New Moon
  2. He is currently exploring various locations for filming in the USA and Canada
  3. He has not been hired for any other movie. That is not to say he won’t be, but it’s just not in the focus right now.


  1. They are not filming the upcoming movies concurrently a la Lord of The Rings style.
  2. Filming is scheduled for late February/early March. Specifically where has not been announced though various Western Canadian locations and Portalnd, Oregon locations have been scouted.


  1. Taylor Lautner will continue as Jacob (We’re mystified why we are still getting mail on this one.).
  2. The role of Leah is not in the New Moon script as confirmed by screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg. So all speculation on "Who is playing Leah?" is ridiculous given that she’s not even in the movie. Please, for the sake of our sanity, no more Leah emails. We swear, Melissa swears we are not making this up: No Leah in the New Moon movie.
  3. Vanessa Hudgens did not at any time audition for any part in New Moon as confirmed by her management, and Summit.  Pel is starting to get this odd twitch every time she opens the email and sees the word "Vanessa" or "Disney" in the subject line.
  4. America Ferrera did not audtion for Emily Young, but actress America Young did. It is unknown whether America Young has landed the role, or who else has auditioned at this time.
  5. Dakota Fanning is in talks to play Jane.
  6. There is a call out for Native Americans fitting certain descriptions to apply for New Moon. There is not a general call out for any other part. In other words, don’t call them, they’ll call you.
