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?
BUSTED!! James Franco was recently busted again for his fascination with The Twilight Saga. James was quoted on MTV News as saying that not only has he read just about all of the Twilight Saga books, but he has seen all three movies that have been released so far. Not only that, he had some issues with some of the scenes in the books and movies.
“I read part of it,” Franco told MTV News about the final book, Breaking Dawn. “I think I got to the sex scene but it was so brief, I didn’t even know it was actually the sex scene. It was kind of really a letdown after all that build-up.”
“I wouldn’t say I enjoy them but I’m fascinated with them,” he said. “I really am interested in the metaphor of the vampire placed in the high school setting and … general feelings that people have as teenagers. And the obsession people have with that is also kind of fascinating to me.”
Franco continued talking about the outrageously popular saga, referencing a particular scene in the third installment, Twilight Saga: Eclipse. “It’s almost like a Brokeback Mountain scene where the two guys are talking in a tent and the girl’s asleep and they’re having the romantic moment almost through her in a way and one of them says, ‘Well I’m hotter than you. It’s almost like they’re winking at all the fans, to the Team Jacobs and the Team Edwards,” he said.
Well, this isn’t the first time that James has brought up Twilight in an interview. Recently, in an interview with Esquire Magazine, he admitted that he was currently reading the last book in the saga, Breaking Dawn. When asked about it, he said he was doing research for an upcoming project. So, what does that mean? Could all of James’ Twihard dreams be coming true? Could he be up for a part in one of the last two movies? If so, who could he be? Nobody knows yet, but Celebstalk has an even more pressing topic to address…Is he Team Edward or Team Jacob? So far, James has been very vocal about his fascination, but since nobody knows which side he is on…Celebstalk investigated this!
At first, we thought for sure that James Franco was Team Jacob. It just seemed more likely to us. Especially after spotting this cute pic of Franco. We know, we know…Jake turns into a wolf…but he can’t just make it obvious people!
Besides…how many Hollywood stars do you see posing with the heads of deceased animals? Just this evidence alone made us think that James very well could be Team Jacob…
But before we made any judgments, we needed to exhaust all of the evidence. And there WAS more evidence…much much more….
Exhibit B: Look at this hair. No self respecting Team Jacob member would wear this hair! This has Team Edward written all over it!
Unless Franco was out in the woods practicing his wolf attacks, we think it’s pretty obvious that this is Team Edward hair all the way…
BUT! As we said…exhaust ALL evidence!
So we are now 1:1, Celebstalkers… We weren’t sure where to turn…we even almost gave up once or twice…but we knew that we couldn’t sleep until we delivered the verdict to you…
Finally…it happened….We found this…
Disturbing? Yes…but you know what they say, sometimes the truth hurts, Celebstalkers! We believe after finding this hardcore evidence that James is not only hardcore Team Edward, but that he is somehow modeling his image after this authentic Team Edward doll…
So there you have it. James Franco: Actor, Teacher, Hottie and now Team Edward lovin’ Twihard!
What do you think Celebstalkers?
Are you shocked?
Are you thrilled?
Do you hope that James will star in Breaking Dawn?
Do you care about any of this at all?
Immortalize yourself and COMMENT BELOW!!!
Super sexy Twilight star Robert Pattinson has been spotted in the southern states filming scenes for his latest project, Water For Elephants, this week. As the temperatures in Georgia continue to rise, Rob makes it even hotter by struttin’ his stuff in this dapper ensemble.
Fans arrived to spend hours in the smoldering heat at 5 am just to catch a glimpse of the dazzling star and his costar, Reese Witherspoon.
Water for Elephants will release next year, as will two of Rob’s other big films, Bel Ami and the first installment of Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn, making next year Robtastic!
No word yet on where else Rob is headed next, but you can bet as always, you can find out about it here on Celebstalk! Until then, we leave you with this tasty dish! Enjoy!!
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!
Edward Cullen, Robert Pattinson, RPattz and KStew Dating Rumors “confirmed”, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn…all in one sexy post!!
With The Twilight Saga: Eclipse just hitting theaters and filming Water for Elephants, Robert Pattinson has been one very busy boy! And with June coming to a close, we are sad to see our June Moug of the Month, Edward Cullen, go with it, so without further adieu, we give you the post of all posts!!
We were there Tuesday at midnight with thousands of others waiting to see all the bloodsucking action unfold at the Eclipse premiere and let us tell you…it was the best one so far!! David Slade did not disappoint us as we watched our favorite vamps and werewolves duke it out for Bella Swan. We won’t tell you too much just in case you just happen to be the one person who didn’t read the books or see Eclipse yet…but we will say that the latest installment of the franchise will not let you down! The only things you will be left wondering is why hasn’t David Slade been the director for ALL of the films??
Okay, so whether you are Team Edward, Team Jacob or Team Newt, GO SEE ECLIPSE!
As we said, RPattz has been very busy. He just finished Bel Ami, Eclipse was just released yesterday, breaking records all over the place and he is currently filming Water for Elephants with Reese Witherspoon. Ugh! Makes us tired just thinking about all that work! But Rob never forgets the fans and he took some time out to discuss his thoughts on the casting for the next film in the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, with E!
E! thinks that Bill Condon should cast former Golden Girl Betty White in the film (pause for WTF?! moment) and asked the British star his thoughts on the idea.
“Definitely,” he says. “She can be the baby.” Of course, the baby he is referring to is Renesmee.
Rob wasn’t the only cast member to get on board with this idea.
“Oh, my gosh,” Kellan Lutz, who plays Emmett Cullen, said. “I love Betty. I would love for them to do what they did in Benjamin Button with her and she can be Renesmee. I would change some scenes up so we could have Jacob (played by Taylor Lautner) and Emmett going for her. I want to work with her. That would be so much fun.”
Elizabeth Reaser (Esme Cullen) agrees with Kellan and Rob. “Is there a part for her?” she asks. “I’d love for her to be in Breaking Dawn. We could all learn a lot from her.”
Julia Jones (Leah Clearwater) suggests that Betty play Bella’s “great great grandmother in a flashback.”
Stephenie Meyer, the author of the novels the films have been made off of immediately saw White as a vampire. “We have so many vampires in Breaking Dawn, surely she can fit in somewhere,” Meyer says. “Wouldn’t it be amazing if she was like just sitting there with a big group of the Vultori? That would be amazing.”
Peter Facinelli (Carlisle Cullen) has bigger plans for legend Betty White, saying “I think Betty White should be in…everything!” he said. “I’d put her in Breaking Dawn and then I’d like to see Betty White do an action movie in 3-D. She should be in the next Avatar.”
Yikes! Well, you never know, right?
And last, but certainly not least, the RPattz/KStew rumors… Ah, the rumors. They have been flying all over the place for the past 2 years, driving all the fans crazy with suspense and suspicion. Well, although there still has been no confirmation from Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, the evidence just keeps piling up for these two. We have followed the pair all the way to Budapest and back and now, producer of the Twilight Saga: Eclipse movie, Wyck Godfrey, confirms the romance, saying that he hopes they can manage to keep their relationship afloat for the sake of the final two films.
The producer says, “The thing I do think about is, ‘Oh my God, I hope they stay together.’ Because it could be awkward on set in the next movie if they have a huge falling out. It’s like ‘Wow, they have to portray this love story through two more movies. God, I hope they stay together; please stay together.’ That’s what affects my day-to-day.
“If you look at people who have a stable personal life, the rags (tabloids) get tired of them. I think we’re heading to that place, where they are together and that’s their life and we better find someone new to create drama out of.”
Don’t be so sure, Wyck. It looks like the fandemonium is starting up again with the newest movie and won’t be stopping anytime soon. At least not until the hype from the last movie dies down.
So as much as we hate to, it is time to say farewell to our June Mougar of the month, Edward Cullen, for now. If you can’t take the torture, then check out Twilight Saga: Eclipse, in theaters nationwide now!
Tell us what YOU think, Celebstalkers!! Did you love the newest Twilight movie? Do you think Betty White is right for Breaking Dawn? Which part? And do you think that Rob and Kristen really are dating? Or just messing with people?
Alright Twihards! It is finally official! The fourth and final book in Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, WILL be two movies! Summit announced on Thursday that due to the length of the book (about 750 pages), they knew it would be difficult to fit all that vampy goodness into one 90 minute flick. The tricky part was that the stars of the mega-money franchise were only locked in for 4 films, so Summit had to cough up the big dough for renegotiations if they wanted Edward (Robert Pattinson…swoon!), Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Jacob (Taylor Lautner) to sign on for a fifth film.
The first of the two films will be released November 18, 2011. We aren’t sure about the fifth film yet, but we do know that they plan to film them back to back and that Bill Condon will be in the director’s chair for both of them.
The fourth and final book centers around Bella and Edward’s marriage, the honeymoon, Bella’s subsequent pregnancy and her finally fulfilling her desire to become transformed into a vampire.
Don’t wanna wait till 2011?? Neither do we! Check out The Twilight Saga: Eclipse in theaters on June 30th and check back pronto for more Twilight news!!
