Writes reader Valdemar303:
they say that New Moon won't be shot in Volterra but in Montepulciano because the locations are "more beautiful for the movie"Thanks, Valdemar303!Also, Olguita wrote in with a translation of Piera Detassis' blog post, which was the original source of this story:
the source is the official italian fanclub of the twilight saga. They took the news from Piera Detassis, the director of the main movie magazine in Italy. she was at dinner with the producers of the movie when the bomb was dropped!
"At lunch in Los Angeles with one of the producers of Summit Entertainment, responsible for, and now Twilight, New Moon, the continuation of the saga is from the books of Stephenie Meyer, the bomb explodes: Despite ads, previews and generous offers of all sorts from part of the Mayor and the City, the vampire sequel will not be filmed in Volterra, where the novel takes place, but in Montepulciano, where the troupe has found the location "to be the most beautiful film."Thanks, Olga! :-)
