Kellan Lutz Talks The Twilight Saga
Posted 10.27.09 by reelz
Kellan Lutz, the man behind "monkey man" Emmett Cullen, spoke to MTV about The Twilight Saga and how each director has brought something new to the franchise.
On the subject of differences within the saga, Lutz had this to say about directors Catherine Hardwicke, Chris Weitz, and David Slade:
Catherine Hardwicke was very energetic, and she made this beautiful movie. Chris Weitz had this really cool, really laid-back vibe, but has a great sense of how to do CGI and how to make these wolves look real and bigger than life versus just some computerized image. Then David Slade, with his action background and his indie style, just mixed the two. The movies are going to be unique in their own aspects, and that's what's really interesting — it's not the same director doing each one. We, as actors, got to see different styles of directing. So it doesn't feel old, ever.
When asked about his favorite New Moon scene, he replied with an answer sure to please the many fans of Charlie Swan and Billy Burke.
My favorite scene is probably anything that Charlie is in, played by Billy Burke. He just has this great comedic timing, and every scene with him, I get a laugh out of. And there's just tons of action. That's the thing too, seeing the wolves actually fight each other and roughhouse. It's really interesting to see what Chris did.
So, Twilighters, what's your take on the saga's directors? Who's your favorite? Do you think they'll do a good job bringing the characters to life? Let us know in the comments.
