My buddy Earl put me up on game today when he forwarded me an email from his Facebook’s Twilight discussion board, and now Summit Entertainment themselves have confirmed any further speculation!

  1. Interesting (and somewhat obvious?) choice for Harry Clearwater! I would have liked him as Mr. Black but the current guy is hilarious! “I’m down with the kids.”

    LOVE THIS BLOG. it is my LIFE. have fun in VA ladies!

  2. Dakota Fanning?

    WTForks???

  3. First…

    I already thought New Moon to be in production (filming) already.

    Second…

    What I enjoyed about the first film was the relative absence of any “big names.” It made it feel like more of an independent film than a major studio feature – which I loved. Though I usually feel this way with any film or television show(s). I cringe whenever a well-known actor is cast on an existing show, as I almost always associate them with the actor’s previous films or work (i.e. Michelle Rodriguez when she joined the cast of LOST, etc).

    Third…

    Not so sure about the production company filming New Moon & Eclipse simultaneously. It would make more financial sense (seeing as if they have not yet locked up all essential actors for the third installment), but it is rarely done (The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions are a perfect example that it could happen though – they were filmed at the same time – but that did not turn out too well).

    I work with a director who is actually signed to Summit… so I will ask him if there is any truth to this rumor. But you can usually tell by the projected length of filming and budget alone.

  4. As soon as I confirm who Isabel is at Summit… I will update What The Forks?! to the rumors.

    (The email address the response came from is legit but… I will hold off for now)

  5. so i heard New Moon & Eclipse are being filmed simultaneously. Eclipse is set out to be out 11.21.10.

    Have you guys heard about this? and if you did do you have more detail about it. Like WHEN Eclipse will start filming.
