Apparently the body double of Robert Pattinson for the Italian shootings in Montepulciano was finally chosen (the guy posting in the indicated blog is a journalist) and you'll find a youtube video of the guy (whose name is Alan Cappelli), who is the protagonist of an Italian tv commercial running on most tv channels these days.Check out the body-double story at TwilightItalia and learn more about Montepulciano filming details here (if you can read Italian). Thanks, Shire!
One guy of our staff was also chosen as a walk-on actor for the shootings, we're thrilled!And a hearsay from Italy: it seems like they're going to shoot one scene inside a building, and probably it's going to be the one when some tourists get trapped (and killed) into the Volturi palace.
For the square scene, it's also rumored that there's going to be something like 1500 walk-on actors involved. Initially, the company that's managing the casting decided to choose just 500 people, later increasing that number to 800: now, rumors are indicating 1500 people as the final recruiting number.
