Facinelli, Reaser Sign Up for Vampire Flick Twilight, First Images

I’ve been a fan of Elizabeth Reaser (pictured below) since “Sweet Land”, so it’s good to hear that she’s been cast in the vampire movie “Twilight”, which is based on a series of young-adult novels by Stephenie Meyer. Peter Facinelli and Jackson Rathbone also join the cast, which already includes the film’s two young leads, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. The film is basically vampires in high school.

More:

“Twilight,” a vampire tale that also contains strong elements of a high-school romance, tells the story of a girl (Stewart) who moves to a small town in Washington state to live with her father and is drawn to a mysterious classmate named Edward Cullen (Pattinson) who turns out to be a vampire. She then encounters the entire Cullen family, all of whom are creatures of the night.

So wait, if the heroine’s classmate turns out to be a vampire, how does he go to school in the daytime? Or are they changing up the vamp rules here?

Anyways, there are three installments in the “Twilight” series — the first is “Twilight”, followed by “New Moon” and “Eclipse”. Catherine Hardwicke will direct from a script by Melissa Rosenberg.

    I don’t think that anyone is perfect enough to play the part of edward. the way that i view him is completely incapable of being brought into the movie. the books make him completely god like, and its even hard to get him just right when you picture him in your head. although i do think that they did a good job in casting. the only complaint that i have is i don’t like the girl who is playing alice. shes the farthest thing in the world from how i picture her. when stephenie meyer was choosing who she thought should play, i think rachel lee cook would have been perfect. she is so tiny. and alice is supposed to have pixie like black hair

    • Krystal

      I totally agree with you on the Alice thing and I like all the characters in the movie they just need to do better at their acting skills. I think Jasper was freakin hot in the baseball scene and needs to be more like that during the whole movie.

      alice does have pixie black hair, she is tiny, and it doesnt matter what u think, stephanie thought that she was goos 4 the part, so, that is what matters, what stephanie pictured her as… but u r right about edward no 1 could really bring him 2 life… she makes him sound so god- like and amazingly handsome and classy

    You have to think, they’re not in the costumes, hair and makeup yet, I mean there is a little less then a year until the movie comes out, and some big changes can happen between now and then.
    I happen to love the person playing Edward, I think he’s a fine actor after seeing him in Harry Potter. I can’t wait! :]

  • isela

    i dislike the character that plas edward cullen hes cute and all but hes just not write to play him!!!

    • Karoline

      Robert Pattinson is the best person to play the part. actually i think that everyone is the perfect person for the part. Ashley Green (Alice) is the only person who could fit the part and i think that if someone wanted to change it i would have to kill them.

      • Kaykay

        thank you very much (karoline) because i also think that every 1 in the cast is best 4 the part, they pull off the way stephanie discribes them as best they could, i personally think that they did a kick a** job!!!

    quite honestly, i agree with katie with the casting of edward. i don’t think that they could cast him and make everyone happy. he’s not human so it’s impossible to cast him and get all of his amazing good looks. i think robert pattinson will do just fine as edward.
    now bella is another matter. yes, i think that kristen stewart will be an ok bella, but they could have definitely picked someone who fit better.
    as with the other cast members, they’re all ok. emmett looks the part but should be more buff, rosalie looks like she’s wearing a wig to me, and carlisle and esme look too old. but these are just my opinions, which i’m not everyone shares.
    one last thing, tayler, jasper does not have black hair. the cullens try to pass off rosalie and jasper as twins, so they both have blonde hair. and i agree with everyone else that’s commented on your spelling, you need definite help with that.

    • Kaykay

      thank you very much… i agree with every thing u said. ur absolutely right
