Casting Complete for New Moon? New Director for Eclipse?

Although we previously reported Entertainment Weekly's claim that Drew Barrymore was in the running to direct Eclipse, LIVE-PR is reporting otherwise. They also say that casting is finally complete for New Moon although Summit has yet to comment on either issue.

New Moon Casting Complete, Eclipse Gets New Director

The casting director for New Moon, Joseph Middleton, has announced that "We are finished with the casting process". No details on the cast list has been released by Summit Entertainment.

( - The rumor mill has been on fire with talk of Madonna, Vanessa Hudgens, AnnaLynne McCord, and Dakota Fanning being hired for a coveted spot on the New Moon cast, however there has been no official confirmation of any of them being hired.

There have also been rumors circulating that Drew Barrymore will be directing the third installment of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Series. These rumors are false. Due to the New Moon production schedule for director Chris Weitz, his brother and co-owner of "Depth of Field Productions" - Paul Weitz - will be directing Eclipse. Chris Weitz is about to start directing "New Moon" but will still be in post-production when the third film starts shooting. Just last week, Summit officially announced "Eclipse" will be released in theaters June 10, 2010.

Eclipse will NOT be filmed back-to-back with New Moon, and there will be completely separate casting cycle. Details about future auditions and open casting calls for Eclipse can be found on the following auditions website: acting411.

  1. Can you please reconsider Kristen Stewart because she makes a terrible Bella. She is destroying this wonderful character and I really think that she can be replaced by a quality actress. Pay a little more and get someone good.
