Twilight the Movie
For those of you who havent heard, Twilight by Stephenie Meyer will be turned into a movie. It is scheduled to be released on December 12, 2008. Here's the plot:

Twilight- Based on the best-selling book series by Stephenie Meyer. Bella Swan has always been a little bit different. Never one to run with the crowd, Bella never cared about fitting in with the trendy, plastic girls at her Phoenix, Arizona high school. When her mother remarried and sent Bella to live with her father in the rainy little town of Forks, Washington, she didn't expect much of anything to change. But things do change when she meets the mysterious and dazzlingly beautiful Edward Cullen. For Edward is nothing like any boy she's ever met. He's nothing like anyone she's ever met, period. He's intelligent and witty, and he seems to see straight into her soul. In no time at all, they are swept up in a passionate and decidedly unorthodox romance - unorthodox because Edward really isn't like the other boys. He can run faster than a mountain lion. He can stop a moving car with his bare hands. Oh, and he hasn't aged since 1918. Like all vampires, he's immortal. That's right - vampire. But he doesn't have fangs - that's just in the movies. And he doesn't drink human blood, though Edward and his family are unique among vampires in that lifestyle choice. To Edward, Bella is that thing he has waited 90 years for - a soul mate. But the closer they get, the more Edward must struggle to resist the primal pull of her scent, which could send him into an uncontrollable frenzy. Somehow or other, they will have to manage their unmanageable love. But what will they do when Laurent and James, the Cullens' mortal vampire enemies, come to town, looking for Bella? Based on the #1 New York Times Bestselling series by Stephenie Meyer, Twilight is a cultural phenomenon, with a fanatic fan-base that eagerly awaits this movie. Critically acclaimed director Catherine Hardwicke brings to life this modern, visual, and visceral Romeo and Juliet story of the ultimate forbidden love affair - between vampire and mortal.

So guys, im so excited about this movie. I'm a Twilight fan and I'm excited that Robert Pattinson is going to be Edward Cullen. He was in Harry Potter 4 as Cedric Diggory but thats done and over. He's our Edward now! I cant wait till they announced who will be Jacob Black. Rumors are going around that it will be Taylor Lautner but since they had an open casting for the role and they wanted an authentic native american, its pretty much up in the air.

Please discuss your opinions about the movie here but please dont bash any of the actors. Wait till the movie comes out! I'll update this page as more news becomes available to the public Big Grin

**Taylor Lautner is officially Jacob Black
Lets go to hell, with our hands clasped, together. As we enter its fiery gates and hear the cries and shouts of the damned, we'll walk in with smiles in our faces and scorn God, for not even death can withstand our love.
Wow, a long and detailed introduction! Big Grin It does sound really interesting, and I just *knew* I had seen Cedric Diggory's face somewhere! Smile I think I might well be going to see the movie... will try and find the book first though!
Twilight Moms did an interview with Peter Facinelli who would be playing Carlisle Cullen for the movie. Enjoy:

Peter : Hi... Dr.Cullen here.

TM: How often do you get to see your family while you are shooting a film? Do they get to come visit you? Is it hard to be away from your kids for a long time?

Peter : I try to see my family at least every two weeks. But it doesn't always work out. I haven't seen them for three weeks now. Although I'm trying to head back this weekend.

Sometimes they visit, but with the kids in school, its difficult. But with Skype we video chat every night.

TM: So, how are they going to change your eye color for the movie. Contacts or CGI?? Can't wait to be dazzled!

Peter: We are all wearing contacts. They look amazing, very golden, and I hope you all like them.

TM: How did filming go today???

Peter: Filming went well, although, we really can't shoot in sunny weather, so they had to go to indoor stuff. I got to shoot some of the baseball playing later in the afternoon.

TM: Have you read all three books?

Peter: Yea, I have read all three books and can't wait for the next one. I'm hooked.

TM: After reading the books and the script, what do you consider to be the most important characteristic of Carlisle and why?

Peter: Great question. I love Carlisle's compassion towards others. I love that he's from another time period too. I see him as very gentlemanly and refined.

TM: How would you describe the dynamic of the relationship between Carlisle and Edward?

Peter: The relationship with Edward is very much like a present day father/ teenage son relationship to me. Edward is going through a difficult period, trying to find himself, trying to figure out who and what he is, and Dr. Cullen is their to guide him. Cullen's been there, and understands what Edward is feeling but there is only so much I can do. Edward has to figure things out for himself as well, just like typical teenagers. You can advise them, try to protect them, but at the end of the day they need to figure things out for themselves.

TM: What did Luca and Lola first say when they saw daddy's new hair?

Peter: I could shave my head and I don't think they'd notice. Kids get wrapped up in their own lives. I actually had to say, what do you think of Daddy's hair?" and they were like, "cool dad."

TM: Do you believe that vampires have souls? (Just Stephenie Meyer's vampires of course)

Peter: As Dr. Cullen, yes I do believe that we have souls. In my view of this character, Dr. Cullen feels like he is stronger than what he was forced to become. Speaking as Cullen, I believe that Vampires are like rabid dogs. They live to feed. What I have accomplished goes beyond being Vampire. I have held on to my human side. And in doing that, I believe that the way of life I have created is stronger than the ordinary vampire. To be strong enough to choose not to feed on humans, takes great will and strength. To be able to pull that off makes us neither Vampire or human, but more super human. To have the abilities we have, and immortality, is a gift. That is what I bestowed upon my family and tried to convince the Volturi many years ago.

Edward doesn't always agree.

TM: Where do you stand on Bella becoming a vampire? Are you pro or anti bite?

Peter: As for Bella... It is a difficult situation. I understand why she wants to become one of us, but, I also cherish humanity and would not want to take that away from her if she had a choice.

TM: Where you one of the cast members that had dinner with Steph? Did she give you some background on Dr.C?

There is so much hinted at in the books about his background, his library, lots of books, pictures, his father's cross.

Peter: Yes. I had dinner with Steph. She is amazing, and I am grateful that she has created these characters. We didn't really get into the character that much. I felt from reading her books, and all of the information I gathered on the web, I had so much information to have an understanding of who I thought Dr. Cullen is, and at the end of the day do my job of interpreting that information and creating a character.

TM: The Twilight Fans can be pretty critical when it comes to the movie. How do you keep from letting any negativity get to you?

Peter: There is a great pressure to appease the fans, but I am realistic that not everyone is going to be appeased, as everyone has there interpretation from reading the books, and some may be different then others. I have processed all of the information and created my own interpretation. My job is to be truthful within that interpretation, and to the facts in the books. I hope people are happy with my rendition. I have put a lot of work thinking about him and understanding him, as have the other cast with their characters.

TM: Can I just say that this is so fun? Thank you so much for coming and answering our questions.

Peter: Glad to be here. I am a fan myself so it is just as fun for me.

TM: What scene are you most excited about filming??

Peter: I take it day by day. Right now we are playing some wicked Vampire Baseball and having a blast.

TM: Are you all playing your own baseball? Are you as good as vampires?

Peter: I played baseball while in High School so it has been fun reliving my glory days. Some of the cast had not played, so like Dr. Cullen would have, I taught them some pointers.

TM: Have you changed any bad habits you might have had prior to filming since they have so many younger fans that might try to imitate them?

Peter: As far as bad habits... I stopped biting my nails for the first time in my life to play this character. And got a manicure for the first time in my life. I just didn't think Dr. Cullen's nails would be chewed up.

TM: Your wife is quoted as saying: "Marriages aren't easy, and we're just like any other couple. We have our roadblocks, but we get around them, and our family prevails. We are so happy we have a normal, grounded life to keep us centered."
How do you maintain a grounded life?

Peter: My wife and I have been together for 13 years. I don't exactly know how we survive. I think it’s just being fully committed to making it work. We have an amazing family, three beautiful children, a great house... We have our bad days but our good days outweigh them, and we try to remember how fortunate we are.

TM: What do you enjoy most about making Twilight?

Peter: This role has been a lot of fun to take on. Dr. Cullen's lived through many centuries, time periods, and places. I felt the need to understand all of the time periods he lived in, and what the places were like at the time. I went through many books, and websites, gathering all that information, to help me understand all the periods he's gone through that have affected his character. It was a great history lesson and fun researching.

TM: What do you enjoy the most about being on location?

Peter: As far as Portland. I shot my first movie here 14 years ago, so its kind of feels like coming full circle to be back.

TM: Any idea when the movie will be released? There's been a lot of talk about this December! Do you know if that's legit?

Peter: I believe it is December.

TM: How does it feel to be the leader of the Cullen family? How are things for the Cullen family both on and off screen?

Peter: I'm about 12-14 years older than most of the cast. So in a way I feel like the dad of the group. We all get along pretty great. It’s interesting because in a way, we’ve taken on some of the traits of our characters, so it is easier to see each other in the roles.

Emmett is always in the gym... HAHA.

TM: Do you know how long filming is going to take?

Peter: We will be filming until the end of April.

TM: The books are for 'young adults' (obviously not strictly)
Do you think they are taking the movie a step further to create a bigger audience? Such as, adding more action, more romance.

Peter: I believe the movie will be PG-13. They are doing their best to add action to make it entertaining, but I promise it won't undermine the love story.

TM: What do you think of the way they are going to promote this movie? I hear so much about how bad promotion can hurt a movie. What else can we fans do to help make this beyond huge?

Peter: I think the trailers will be great, and will help draw people that are not familiar with the book. But if you guys want to see the sequels then, we have to make the first one successful, so word of mouth, by all of the TWILIGHT fans, would be a big help, to get audiences in the seats this December. I am looking forward to fighting alongside some werewolves...

TM: Who are your heroes?

Peter: Paul Newman and Robert Redford. When I was younger I read biography on Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. They inspired me.

TM: What made you want to become an actor?

Peter: To explore different facets of myself, to live many lifetimes in one, to study human nature, and be able portray different people is different occupations; with different lives in different circumstances is why I act.

What other occupation would allow me to explore the world of a 350 year old Vampire?

TM: So much of Stephenie Meyer's characterization is nonverbal. Does it translate well to the screenplay, or is a familiarity with the novel(s) necessary for this project?

Peter: Kristen is so good at conveying so much without saying a word. She is Bella... I think everyone will be very pleased with her performance.

I want to thank everyone for writing in. Unfortunately, I, unlike Carlisle, need a bit of sleep, and have to get up very early for some more baseball.

Just so you know... Jasper, Rosalie, and I are winning. Although Esme thinks we cheat so it's debatable.

Love to do another one again soon. Maybe next time in character as Dr. Cullen

Goodnight Twilight Moms... And thank you for all of your support. Sorry for any misspelled words. I was trying to type as fast as I could peck.


Twilight Moms also interviewed Ashley Greene awhile back and here it is:
1.) TM: Have you read the books?

Ashley: Yes of course I’ve read all three books! A few times actually. I finished all three books, and become a fan before I was even cast!

2.) TM: What do you do in Portland with your spare time? Do you need a local tour guide? No charge. My number is (XXX) XXX-XXXX. Ha ha.

Ashley: Time off. HA! No, um just trying to explore the city. It really is a gorgeous place! I’ve decided I would like a house here. And thank you for the offer, that’s incredibly sweet.... I might just take you up on the offer when I’m here on my own time

3.) TM: What is your favorite Alice moment in the books, if you have read them?

Ashley: Favorite Alice moment? Hmm.... there are a few but a moment that always makes me smile is the whole yellow Porsche bit.... it shows a playful warm connection between Edward and Alice

4.) TM: Have you heard any chatter about sequels?

Ashley: Definitely heard the chatter I would love if there were sequels. We shall see.

5.) TM: Can we come and do an interview in person some time on behalf of

Ashley: The in person interview could probably be arranged. That’s something that will have to go through my management and the movie publicist though. I would love to though, if it can be arranged.

6.) TM: Are you getting along with the other cast members?

Ashley: The Cast is amazing! Everyone pretty much "clicks" which is very nice considering we are family now.
7.) TM: Can you please ask Rob if he got the Jack Nicholson DVD's that we dropped off? A production assistant names Derek said he would give them to Rob.

Ashley: I will certainly ask Rob if he has received the DVD.

8.) TM: What actors or actresses to you look up to?

Ashley: I love love, love Audrey Hepburn. She's so timeless and classically beautiful. Gina Davis is also great... long kiss goodnight was a favorite of mine for a while. Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep and Felicity Huffman are some others I look up to.

9. TM: What's the biggest difference between the Alice from the books vs. the Alice we will see in the movie version?

Ashley: I am trying to keep the character pretty similar to the book. Everyone has a different take though. I don't want to give anything away, but I am trying to give the character layers that people may not have picked up on. Most people see her as a cheerful cute bubbly girl, and there is just so much more to Alice than that.

10. TM: Has Alice's hair been a big concern about getting accurate? Or are you doing your own version of it? Will it be a wig or your hair?

Ashley: Oh the hair! Haha, it’s definitely been a work in progress. I think you'll be pleased though. Again, I’m trying to keep her close to what the fans see. I'm not fictional though, so we have to work with my face

11. TM: Have you seen any of the costume designs for the movie yet? Stephenie Meyer has a very specific look for Alice's prom dress on her website. Is the costume designer going off of that or using something completely original?

Ashley: The wardrobe I have seen is awesome! I love it. Unfortunately, the prom dress is just as much of a mystery to me as it is to you.

12. TM: I'd love to know more about the casting photo that was done of the Cullen’s. Was it really a last minute thing? Are wigs going to be used in the movie?

Ashley: Yes, the photo was just a general idea. Don’t worry. We were no where near finished.

13. TM: What did you think of Stephenie Meyer?

Ashley: Stephenie Meyer was so pleasant. She really is a sweet and talented woman I was a little nervous to meet her, but the second we sat down and began chattering away, I was completely comfortable. I’m very excited I was able to meet her!

14. TM: In what ways are you like Alice? How are you different?

Ashley: Well, physically, there are a few differences. At this point I think we all know I'm much much taller which much longer hair. I relate somehow with any character but this one is a little different considering she is a vampire who can see the future. I do have the same intense love for my family I’m very blessed to have such an amazing family. And I care a lot about others feelings, I would never want to intentionally hurt anyone. And what girl doesn't love shopping!?

15. TM: Are you under contract to do a sequel?

Ashley: We don't talk about contracts.

16. TM: What do you think your life will be like after this movie comes out? Are you excited or nervous about all the exposure from crazy fans like us or is that just something that you take as part of the job?

Ashley: I am a little nervous. A good nervous though. The exposure will definitely help my career and enable me to keep doing what I love ya know? I am a little scared of the privacy level that will probably be next to nothing, but aside from that I’m ecstatic!

17. TM: What kind of big stunt work is being done? We have heard about flying thru trees - will you get to do anything like that?

Ashley: We are doing a good amount of stunt work. So neat! I’m trying to do all of my own stunt stuff.

18. TM: What are you doing to prepare for this role? Or what have you had to do?
We've heard Robert is doing a lot of physical training and also work on the dialect/accent. Have you had to do anything like that?

Ashley: Well, baseball. I’ve never played before so it’s quite a challenge. I've been studying few books, films and my own personal exercises.

19.TM: What is it like to work with Catherine Hardwicke?

Ashley: Catherine is a ball of energy. Positive energy. She's very fun to work with!

20. TM: Some actors only like to read the script and not the book the script is adapted from... what do you like? Since a lot is changed in a script from the book version, do you think that knowing the character from the books point of view helps or is distracting?

Ashley: I think anything I can get my hands on helps. Books, the script, twilight sites, Wikipedia..... it gives me so many more places to pull from.

21. TM: What was the audition process like for the role of Alice? can you talk about who else was considered? (or that you beat out ) How long have you known that you had the part?

Ashley: The auditioning process was really long for me.... a couple of months. And I don't really know the people considered. I try not to focus on that stuff.
And I knew about a month before I flew out.

22. TM: How is the chemistry between yourself and Jackson Rathbone? (on and off screen)

Ashley: Jackson is an awesome guy! Such a fun person to be around. And I think there is a bit of chemistry with everyone in the cast. We all get along great. We all hang out and goof off together.

23. TM: Ashley does it surprise you that Twilight has a huge Adult fan base? What do you think of all us crazy TMs lusting after Edward/Jacob?

Ashley: I am pleasantly surprised. My mom loves it too though.
Haha, well Jacob and Edward are perfect. I mean I’ve read the books and now I've met the people and they should be lusting!! They are very lust-able guys haha.

24. TM: What’s it like on set? Is it a fun cast or is it more serious?
Is anyone the funny one? Peter said in his MySpace blog that he gets called the ~dad~ has anyone else gotten a nickname?

Ashley: Oh its very fun. Its a very young, fun cast. Um, the "wifey" and "Hubby" terms have been tossed around. And we go in and out of being called jasper alice ashley jackson and such....

25. TM: Why has the cast been kept so secret? Is it just so that the production company can spread it out to keep up the buzz?

Ashley: I’ve got no idea about the cast. I think they wanted to wait until things are solid and set in stone really. But the Buzz was a positive too.

26. TM: Happy belated Birthday wishes!! Did you do anything special or where you working?

Ashley: Thanks!! I’m 21! I was working but a friend flew in and a couple of the cast took me out for a chill night. It was really nice, and I remember it!

27. TM: Where do you stay when you are filming? Do they put you up in a hotel, apartment, etc.?
What about meals? Do they have everything catered so you don't have to leave the set?
What about free time? Can you go sight seeing? What is the funest thing you have done in Portland?

Ashley: Oh yea, we get fed. They put us up in hotels for most films. And we get Per Diem for food each day, even though they feed us! Not a ton of free time but when we're off we have been trying to look around. I want to go hiking, it’s so gorgeous out! Um, went to Powells the other day, I love that place! A lot of the fun is on set actually. Wire work rocks!

28. TM: Being a crazed fan - I can't get a good perception on how the outside world is going to react to Twilight the movie - is the buzz around set that this is going to be huge? Or obviously that’s the hope of every movie, but does it seem to be a big topic that comes up? Is there a lot of weight laying on this having a huge opening? Will that effect the possibilities of sequels happening or are the sequels already being set up?

Ashley: There is the hope that its a huge film. There is that pressure to appeal to die hard fans and also people who have never heard of the book. If we can achieve that I think there is a real possibility of this movie doing great in the box office. Of course I think the numbers effect if there is a sequel. If we open huge then it would seem like the most logical thing to do. If we fizzle then I highly highly doubt the second book would be filmed.

29. TM: What is the buzz about us fans? Do we differ from most movie fans in that we aren't really about one particular actor- but excited about the whole dang movie even down to the cars they are using?

Ashley: We love the fans! Your the reason the films getting made and such a buzz! So thank you!

30. TM: We fans are obsessed about every little detail. Is this something Director Catherine Hardwicke is taking into consideration? If she is - can you give us an example?

Ashley: We all take that into consideration. No movie is a spitting image of the book, but we are going to try to keep you guys happy. There are a lot of similarities but there will be differences.

31. TM: What is your favorite book/movie (aside from Twilight, of course!)

Ashley: Favorite book? hmm.... I’m in the middle of "Eat Pray Love" ... it’s a good one. Really enjoyed the Da Vinci code and well as Demons and Angels.

32. TM: What's your dream role in a movie? Do you even have one? This could be a book character, or a movie that has already been made... whatever Just curious. AND, if you could appear opposite from any hottie in a movie who would it be? (So many wonderful possibilities here... I have my own hottie list...)

Ashley: Haha I am right there with ya!
Dream Role: I really would love to do a piece like Julia Roberts or Charlize Theron in Erin Brockovich or North Country. They were both so amazing and so inspiring. I would love to touch someone in the way they're performances touched me. Obviously that will be when I play 30 and not 16 so I have time. Also a time piece.
Playing Alice is pretty ideal as well. I get to do everything!
Hmmm.... well I’m already working with a bunch of hotties now haha. But besides those guys Mr Johnny Depp is the first that pops into my head.

33. TM: Can you tell us all about Alice's wardrobe for the movie????

Ashley: Alice's wardrobe is a mixture of modern edge with elegance and magic I have the best wardrobe.... I think I’m going to try to take it all back with me!

34. TM: What is a typical day like for you on set? How early do you start? How is your time spent!

Ashley: Nothings typical with us. Some days are suuuuper long and some are short. The times vary as well.... usually don’t have days that begin before like 8 so that’s good. We just began filming though. The last few weeks was all training and hair and makeup.

35. TM: I just was wondering, if any of the other actors have been freaked out at all by the dedication of the fandom, and by any of the Twilight Mom's stalking adventures.

Ashley: No, not at all. Right now I think its a blessing we have you guys as fans and supporters.

36. TM: What scene in the movie can you not wait to get to??

Ashley: Fight scene!!

37. TM: Is Robert speaking in an American accent while in character?

Ashley: Yes I believe he will.

38. TM: I'm trying to be really good and not ask a thing about MY favorite! (Emmett) (Tell me everything you know!!)

Ashley: I’m thrilled about Emmett as well...
Kellan and I have been friends for a few years so I was extremely happy about being able to be on screen with him.

Ashley’s response to multiple well-wishes and congratulations on her casting as Alice-
Thank you so much for all the support. It’s a big relief to know that in general people are happy with our cast!
Lets go to hell, with our hands clasped, together. As we enter its fiery gates and hear the cries and shouts of the damned, we'll walk in with smiles in our faces and scorn God, for not even death can withstand our love.
