Bill Nighy is the one singing Christmas is all around us, right? :lol:

But isn't Caius the only one with white hair? So wouldn't that make Aro and Marcus a little younger when they were changed? I'm not really sure about their age, but if they were in their 20s/early 30s, we should get two good looking Italian actors or something to play Aro and Marcus 8-)

Yeah...Christmas is all around us, it's in the air...He was very funny in that movie. Maybe SM pictured them as younger, but not me, so thats why I see Bill in that role...I just can't picture a younger Volturi...just can't, so I guess if they do cast younger folks I'll have to adjust to them. I thought Marcus was the only non-white haired Volturi, I'm going to look tonight fter work unless someone wants to do it before then. :::bats eyes so sweetly:::

Wow! I absolutely love Italy, I vacationed there once and it was the most amazing experience! It would be incredible if New Moon had a bit higher budget and they could actually film scenes in Volterra, but that's probably doubtful :? Those pictures are great, thanks for sharing! The one with the "dark looking entrance" really made it New Moon-ish to me.

Aro & Marcus have black hair, Caius has white. I think maybe it was the description of their skin and the general aura of ancientness that they give off, but I can't picture them as young either... I envision more 50's +, maybe 40's +.

We all know the word "Twilight" was mentioned in the book Twilight and in Eclipse, the word "Eclipse" was mentioned when Jacob said it in the end.
I also couldn't find the words "Breaking Dawn" in BD. But who knows if SM meant to do that to each book.
OK, I can never leave a Twilight challenge untouched. Yes, new moon is mentioned in chapter 3, pg 74, when Bella is laying down in the forest after Edward leaves. :cry:

"Perhaps there was no moon tonight -- a lunar eclipse, a new moon. A new moon. I shivered, though I wasn't cold."

I personally hated the absence of Edward in New Moon, in fact I hated it so much that when I re-read the series I just totally skipped over half of New Moon so I wouldn't miss Edward. Well, when I read the series the third time, after Breaking Dawn came out and I knew how it all ended, I reread New Moon in it's entirety, and I still missed Edward -- don't get me wrong -- but I enjoyed it SO much more!! I got to like Jacob more in Breaking Dawn, so reading about him and Bella in New Moon was just really . . . nice. I personally might be more excited for New Moon to be a movie than any of the other books!! I don't know why, but if I have a good cry in a movie then I love it that much more! And I have a feeling that Rob and Kristen could send me into hysterics with their amazing acting!!

Oh, and I'm not sure whether Breaking Dawn is mentioned in that book. *going to do more research*

New Moon was my least favorite book...no Edward, too much whining, too much Jacob...but if New Moon gets made, my hope would be Eclipse would be made, which is my very favorite book!

There's already talk of New Moon being on the production slate. Are you going to be involved with that, if it's happening?
I would be, yes. But you have to understand, nothing is official yet. We're not announcing it, and it's not a final conversation yet. This is all still in the works. But if and when it happens, I will be involved in it, yes. And I'm just thrilled. I'm such a huge fan of Stephenie's work and this vivid world that she creates. It's so complete and so rich and complex emotionally. It's just a delightful world to play in. As a reader I'm a huge fan, but as an adaptor, I couldn't ask for a better world to work with.

There you have it. :)
Whew!!! I'm breathing a sigh of relief having heard this. I heard that another screen writer before Melissa wrote a terrible script for Twilight -- involving Bella being a track star and the FBI appearing at some point. :roll:

Melissa has said, and many other people involved in the movie have said this as well, that she's trying to stick to the book as closely as possible -- and I know that Catherine Hardwicke is all about keeping it true to Stephenie's words as well.

I've seen this as someone's avatar somewhere and I thought it was hilarious:
Twilight: mess up the movie and die :evil:

That's how I feel!! LOL

It'll be the only part where we get to see what 'normal' vampire lives are like instead of the Cullens... and it's going to take place in a really awesome place... you know, where's it not green. I just think it's going to be neat to see.

I wonder if Kristen and Rob will go visit while they're in Rome?
Do you think they'll actually film it in Rome? That would be amazing!!! I seriously hope they do now-- they have to have the clocktower and everything. I've read that part so many times- Bella running as fast as she can through all the people and finally, she sees Edward!!! Hooray!

I really, really hope they can go to Volterra, Italy to film. I was just thinking the other day when I heard that Catherine, Rob, and Kristen were all going to be in Rome to a Twilight panel or something -- can't they just swing by Volterra and do some New Moon filming now? You know, just in case??? It'll save them air fare later . . .
LOL

I hope they can go to Volterra too, that would be awesome, at least to film the outdoor scenes, they might have to do some of the crazy indoor Voltera castle scenes on a production set.

I think after the see the turnout for Twilight they will be able to have a bigger budget for when they do New Moon, yes? We should all help by seeing the movie multiple times!!!
