Twilight News and Gossip

Twilight fans I have some news and gossip that I wanted to share with you. For the past few months since the anticipated release of Eclipse in June rumors have been flying left and right about Breaking Dawn’s filming locations, scenes that will make it on the film, new cast members, filming dates, etc. Summit Entertainment has done their best to put a stop to these rumors by putting out official statement of their plans. One of these statements is the release date for Eclipse on DVD December 4. Summit has also confirmed that Breaking Dawn will be split into two films with part one being release on November 18, 2011 and part 2 a year later on November 16, 2012. Another confirmation from Summit is that Breaking Dawn will be filmed in both Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Vancouver over the next year. The script is currently being written by Melissa Rosenberg with Wyck Godfrey, Karen Rosenfelt and Stephenie Meyer producing.

I also got my hand on a half confirmation from Godfrey regarding when filming will begin for Breaking Dawn in his interview with Reelz Channel. Godfrey said and I quote "We're going to start finding our locations and designing sets and we start shooting in November" and probably extend until roughly March 15. Nothing has been set in stone so it is a “possible” start date.

Now with all of these rumors still flying around like flies over honey I have come across a few myself. The other day I happen to come across a very interesting (to say the least) ET interview. Kate Gosselin correspondent for ET talked to The Pacific actor Rami Malek at ET’s exclusive emmy party about an upcoming role in Breaking Dawn. Malek goes on to tell ET that he is “thrilled” about his upcoming role, but he did not say specifically what role he would be taking. It has been rumored that he is up for the role of Benjamin one of the members from the Egyptian coven. You may recognize Malek from his role as the Egyptian mummy in Night at the Museum one & two. There has not been an official statement from Summit Entertainment in regards to Malek joining the cast. We just have to wait and see. He appears to have the Egyptian part down but the question remain can he pull off becoming Benjamin? Let me know what you think. Here is a link to Malek's ET interview

The other Breaking Dawn casting rumor is that Drew Roy and Guri Weinberg may join the Twilight cast. According to Reelz Channel Drew Roy is rumored to play Nahuel, a human-vampire from South America. Roy was seen in One Wish and he is in the upcoming movie Secretariat with Diane Lane. Guir Weinberg of Munich is allegedly playing Stefan, a Romanian vampire who allies with the Cullens against the Volturi. Weinberg was in the movie You Don't Mess with the Zohan as Aharon. These casting rumors ar still wishful thinking until we hear from Summit Entertainments. Personally, I can see Weinberg as Stefan, he has that "I won't stare cause you're scary" kind-of a look that is perfect for Stefan. Roy on the other hand really does not sell it to me as Nahuel, because his character is taller and has darker skin. I could see him as one of the Volturi guards, but as Nahuel, no way! Do you think Drew and Guri are great matches for the parts they are rumored to play? Love to hear you thoughts on this.

The final casting rumor that definitely caught my particular attention was that of who will be playing the part of Edward and Bella’s daughter, Renesmee. Casting for this role has been said to be the hardest of all. Stephenie Meyer herself has said that the casting for the role will be near to impossible, do to the fact of Renesmee’s rapid growth in the novel. There has been talk about multi-actresses to play the different stages of Renesmee. According to Model Management Group, there is one young lady being courted for the part of an older Renesmee she is identified only as Kayla D. MMG's Facebook page reads, "Attached is a photo of Kayla and Daniel D. ... Kayla is the little girl up for the role of Bella's daughter in the new film in the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. Kayla is pictured with her adorable brother Daniel who has already had two castings since signing with us this month! Daniel will be submitting a video audition for another role in the Twilight film! Good Luck guys!!!!” Of course Summit has not confirmed this allegation to be true.

Contrary to what meets the eye, Daniel and Kayla are actually not twins. Kayla is actually 3 years younger than Daniel. Both children are extremely talented. MMG scouted the siblings at the IPOP convention in Las Vegas in July 2010. Both kids received training from John Robert Powers School in Montreal, Quebec prior to attending the convention and signing with MMG.  I do thing that with the brown hair she would make a perfect Renesmee. Kayla to me has that “mentally older then what I physically look like” thing going on that is Renesmee. But of cores that is my opinion. I want to know your thoughts on Kayla, is she right for the part of Renesmee?
