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 agree with everyone about the actors they just don’t fit the part but I don’t think you should call someone ugly because of that(Tayler) besides they casted those people for a reason so hopefully the movie will be as good as the book.

    ok so im totally obsessed and i can’t wait for breaking dawn to come out along with the movie later this year . . . but i can’t get over the fact that the casting is all wrong.

    Bella~ i think kristen is an okay choice but for me i think alexis bledel would have been better.

    Edward~ henry cavill was WAY better for the edward position, definatelly hot and had all the bone structure right.

    Carslisle~ he definatly looks too old. I’m pretty sure he supposed to look about 25 . . . and he doesn’t.

    Esme~ I think they totally ruined Esme. I had pictured Esme as more of a tall, thin woman with a kind face and dirty blonde hair, not at all like the woman they cast.

    Emmet~ emmet should be buff and some what bulky i suppose. plus i pictured him with darker hair

    Jasper~ jasper was a pretty good choice i must say . . . probably the best of all

    Rosalie~ now she was deff a great pick too

    Alice~ okay im sorry but didn’t alice have a pixie cut hair style for one and for two i always thought of her as having VERY light auburn hair.

    well hopefully this doesn’t ruin the book but for me the book is always going to be better than any movie could make it. Stephanie Meyer is an amazing author and i can’t wait till the next book rolls onto shelves

    i agree that it would probably be physically impossible to have any actor live up to the written version of Edward Cullen so every one just needs to get over that…
    the only problem i have is that edward IS NOT supposed to be british… according to the book edward was born as human and vampire in the US if… i recall right i believe he was supposed to have been born in chicago (as a human) i think its the same when he was on his death bed and changed to a vampire… so i think that will be the only problem (outside the looks bc we cant do anything about it) that i will have while watching that movie…
