New Moon Cast Gearing Up for a Tight Shooting Schedule
01.30.09 by REELZ
With shooting scheduled to begin in Vancouver in mid-March, and a release date in November, you'd think that everyone on the cast of New Moon would have gotten a peek at the script. Soon, but not yet.
In a series of video interviews with Collider, Edi Gathegi, Rachelle Lefevre, Ashley Greene, and Kellan Lutz talk about getting ready for the Twilight sequel, what scenes they are most looking forward to filming, and how they are dealing with what looks to be a pretty tight shooting schedule. Despite the looming deadlines, they seem more enthusiastic than anxious about the challenge.
Gathegi, who will return as the vampire Laurent, admits he hasn't seen the script yet and adds: "We haven't even begun filming yet and we'll be in theaters on November 20th watching the movie. That's wild!"
There are signs that production is starting to get going though. Movieset is calling attention to this somewhat cryptic early February casting call that, while not mentioning New Moon by name, sure does look like it must be for the Twilight sequel: "Looking for First Nations/aboriginal actors and actresses between the ages of 15 and 25" for a speaking part in a major motion picture that begins filming in Vancouver in March.... Hmm.
