So it’s official, Twi-stalkers. Nine year old Mackenzie Foy has been cast for the role of Renesmee in the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. (***Spoiler Alert! If you are one of the 7 people left who have not yet read Breaking Dawn, then you may want to stop reading now!!**)
Perhaps the most anticipated cast member to be chosen since her characters parents, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and June’s mega-mougar of the month, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), Mackenzie Foy has been creating a lot of buzz already throughout Hollywood as rumors began flying that she was a potential candidate for the role of Renesmee Cullen. Twilight Saga author Stephenie Meyer confirmed the studios choice on Facebook Wednesday night.
“Very excited about our new Renesmee, Mackenzie Foy,” Meyer wrote. “She’s an amazing young actress and I’m excited to work with her.”
So how will they pull it off? With a baby who ages rapidly through the book, it may be tricky. According to recent reports, Bill Condon, the director for the last two installments of the Twilight Saga, is expected to use the same special effects that were used to de-age Brad Pitt’s character in the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
It has also been reported that the studio is considering using younger actresses for the earlier parts of the role.
Recently the studios announced that they had cast Lost’s Maggie Grace to play the role of Irina from the Denali clan, joining MyAnna Buring (as Tanya) Casey LaBow (as Kate), Mia Maestro (as Carmen) and Christian Camargo (as Eleazar).
So it sounds like the studios have been busy, which is great because shooting for the first half of the final installment starts next month in Louisiana.
You can expect to see all of the new additions, along with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner and the rest of the returning cast members November 18, 2001 and November 16, 2012 for the last two movies in the series.
So how do our Celebstalkers feel about the new additions? Are you excited about the choices they have made? Do you plan to see the last two movies in the Twilight Saga?
In a suit that the Twilight Saga star filed on Monday he claims that his dad negotiated a deal with an Irvine, CA McMahon’s RV dealership to deliver a custom trailer to the set by June so the star would be able to use it while filming his newest movie.
After the deadline passed, Lautner and Shark Kid Entertainment sued for a breach of contract and fraud.
So what is Taylor suing for? Nobody knows, but we sure would like to!
Taylor, if you’re reading this…just take off your shirt and tell us Celebstalk what happened!
Filming for the remaining two installments of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn 1 and 2, begins in the winter!
So what do you think about Tay Tay’s law suit?
Do you think he is justified?
Or is he just being a diva?
Are you totally stoked about the upcoming filming of Breaking Dawn?
Do you even care about Abduction knowing that Breaking Dawn is right after?
What do you think Robert Pattinson would say?
Most of our Celebstalkers probably have at least heard of Jackson Rathbone in one way or another. As one of Tinseltown’s hottest up and coming stars, you are sure to see a whole lot more of him really soon.
Here are some of the things we’ll bet you already knew about Jackson:
1.) He has starred as Jasper Hale in the Twilight Saga movies (Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse), Edward Cullen’s gifted adopted brother who has the ability to control the emotions of the people around him.
2.) He also starred in the movie The Last Airbender as Sokka.
3.) Before his Twilight success, he had guest spots on popular teen shows such as The O.C.
4.)He is super freaking hot!
1.) Is musically inclined. In addition to his band, 100 Monkeys, he also plays the harmonica and the guitar. He enjoys bluesy types of music and also writes, sings and produces.
2.) Was born in Singapore and raised in Midland, Texas. Remember that sexy southern draw in Eclipse? That was the real deal, ladies. Everyone loves a guy with an accent and a southern gentleman is always sexy!
3.) He has a background in the theater. Just a few of his theatrical credits include leading roles in plays like “A Midsummers Night Dream”, “Macbeth”, “Grease”, “Jesus Christ Superstar”, “Les Misrables” and “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe”.
4.) He enrolled at Interlochen Arts Academy as a high school theater major where he excelled at Shakespearean roles.
5.) Originally when Jackson auditioned for the movie Twilight, he went for the role of Edward Cullen and nearly won the role until the super sexy Robert Pattinson came in to audition. After Rob won the role, they offered the part of Jasper to Jackson.
So are you ready to see lots more of Jackson? We are too! Lucky for us, Jackson has a few new projects in the works. You can see him in the movie Girlfriend which is coming out sometime this year and he is also signed on for three more films, two of which are Twilight Saga’s Breaking Dawn 1 and 2, which are slated to release in 2011 and 2012, where he will return as Jasper Hale.
If you don’t want to wait that long, you can always share some alone time with Jackson and watch him in Twilight and New Moon, or you can head to your local theater where two of his films, The Last Airbender and Eclipse are still showing! And as always, you can always check back at Celebstalk!
In the past months, there has been a lot of rumors circulating about Kristen Stewart replacing Angelina Jolie in the sequel to 2008’s Wanted. While Twilight Saga’s leading lady says that she can neither confirm nor deny the rumors, she is finally speaking out about them in a recent interview with MTV News, saying it’s a project she wouldn’t pass on.
“I mean, like, it’s weird to answer questions like this. The only two projects that I’m confirmed on right now are ‘On the Road’ and ‘Breaking Dawn 1 and 2.'” Stewart says.
But does that mean that she would be interested in portraying a super assassin in the Wanted sequel?
“Yes. Definitely, as long as it was good and I mean, it’s really exciting to see (that it could be an opportunity),” she admits. “‘Wanted’ was a great movie, like, James McAvoy makes that movie different because he’s a real guy, and I feel like most action movies don’t have that. So if it had that (element), definitely. But I wouldn’t just want to be in a mindless blow-up movie. I’m not into it.”
Apparently, there have also been rumors circulating about Kristen making her London stage debut, too, and MTV News asked her about those rumors as well.
“People have been asking me that. That’s so weird. I don’t know where that came from,” she says. “I would love to. That’s also something that really intimidates me and I have no experience in it. But I would want to, definitely. I’m just not doing that right now.”
So, what do you think, celebstalkers? After seeing Kristen play Bella Swan opposite heartthrob Robert Pattinson for the 5 films of The Twilight Saga, do you think that you would like seeing her in something so different? Do you think she has the chops to pick up where Angelina Jolie left off? If not, who would you like to take over the Wanted role?
