Drunk-Blogging About Volterra: My Next Vacation Destination (I wish...)

The Volturi Town Blog has a new article about the Three Etruscan Heads. Since the article is in Italian and I studied French in high school, I have no clue what it says, but it looks bee-yoo-tiful and I wanna go.

Happy Saturday, everybody! I am sitting here enjoying Tabla's Tart n' Fruity Sangria (my *favorite* sangria recipe -- TRY IT (only if you're 21+), it's amazing, I promise!), prepping for a dinner party and drunk-blogging. :-) Well, just tipsy.

P.S. Thanks Volturi Blog for letting us know about this! I hope that your petition to have New Moon filmed in your lovely city works out.

New Moon Casting Process is Complete, so where does that leave Solomon Trimble?

Live PR reports that Joseph Middleton, the casting director for New Moon, has announced that the New Moon casting process is finished.

With this news, where does this leave Solomon Trimble? Team Solomon has a slew of recent Solomon interview links up on their website, and encourages everybody who is interested to sign their petition to retain the original Twilight cast -- including Solomon Trimble. In a recent interview with Twilighters Anonymous, Solomon mentioned how touched he is by fan support:
"Are you aware of the countless petitions all over the web to support you and bring you back for New Moon? How do you feel about the dedication that all of your fans display?

Solomon: I’ve just recently become aware of the petitions and feel so supported by the fans. I am deeply moved. It helps me focus in the gym and keeps me motivated to stay on my Quileute studies. They’re awesome."

Another Potential Hat in the Ring: Paul Weitz May Direct Eclipse?

Acting411 has an Eclipse audition update that says that Paul Weitz will be directing Eclipse.
There have 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 post-production schedule for director Chris Weitz, his brother and co-owner of "Depth of Field Productions" - Paul Weitz - will be directing Eclipse.
Note: This is an *unconfirmed* rumor. As with all rumors, let's wait and see what actually happens.

Coincidentally, Film.com suggested Paul Weitz as a possibility for Eclipse director in their New Moon Rumor Roundup:
Rumor: Chris Weitz has already been fired from Eclipse.

Verdict: I know it sounds harsh, but it’s pretty much true. In order to hit that June 30, 2010, release date, Eclipse will have to begin shooting while New Moon is still in post-production. Weitz can’t be in two places at once; therefore, a new director will need to be hired to helm Eclipse. It seems to me that Summit is taking a big risk here. What if the fans love what Weitz does with New Moon and become angry that he was never given the chance to return for Eclipse? (Easy solution: Summit can keep things in the family by hiring Chris’ brother/frequent collaborator, Paul Weitz, to direct Eclipse!)
Thanks to Cullen Boys Anonymous for the Acting411 tip!

Kristen Stewart & Taylor Lautner Sang Karaoke in Japan Too: More Details!

Looks like Robert Pattinson isn't the only crooner in Twilight. Just Jared Jr. reports that Kristen & Taylor also joined in on Robert & Hugh Jackman's Karaoke fun.
At around 10PM on Wednesday (February 26), Rob joined Australia star Hugh Jackman, director Baz Luhrmann and producer John Palermo at a karaoke bar near their hotel, as first reported by E!. Here’s the connection: On Sunday, Rob presented at the Oscars, Hugh ably hosted the swank event, John created the flashy opening number, Baz choreographed the “Musicals Are Back!” number and everyone wound up taking the same flight to Japan together.

A Tokyo journalist confirms to JustJared.com that the foursome (plus friends) sang for a few hours before Rob’s costars Kristen and Taylor joined in on the fun. Photographers caught them leaving bar around 3AM.

Another Hat in the Ring: Drew Barrymore up for Eclipse Director?

First, the Spanish director of The Orphanage, Juan Antonio Bayona, and 3:10 to Yuma helmer James Mangold were rumored to be in talks to direct Eclipse. Now Drew Barrymore may be throwing her hat into the ring.

reports that Drew Barrymore is being considered to direct Eclipse:
As Summit Entertainment looks to lock in a director for the third installment of the Twilight series, Eclipse, the company is talking to a select group of directors -- including actress-turned-helmer Drew Barrymore, EW has learned. While this news may come as a surprise to some, Barrymore did just finish work on her directorial debut, Whip It! starring Ellen Page. Neither Summit nor Barrymore's reps would comment for this story
Interesting! Just for old times sake: :-)

Rumors, Rumors: Dakota Fanning *May* Have Officially Signed (?) + Volterra Filming May Not Be Set in Stone

If -- and ONLY if -- Production Weekly is a reliable source, then looks like Dakota Fanning may have signed on for New Moon. Justajerseygal, who provided the first New Moon update from Production Weekly, shares an updated version, with updates in bold:

Feature Film 02-12-09

STATUS - March 23 LOCATION - Vancouver - Italy
PRODUCER: Patrick Wachsberger - Wyck Godfrey WRITER: Melissa Rosenberg DIRECTOR: Chris Weitz LP: Bill Bannerman PM: Barbara Kelly
CAST: Robert Pattinson - Kristen Stewart - Taylor Lautner - Billy Burke - Gil Birmingham - Peter Facinelli -Elizabeth Reaser -Ashley Greene - Jackson Rathbone - Kellan Lutz - Nikki Reed - Dakota Fanning

All is not well between demon-magnet Bella and Edward Cullen, her vampire Romeo. An innocent papercut at Edward's house puts Bella in grave danger when various members of the Cullen family can barely resist their hunger at the smell of blood. The Cullens promptly leave town, afraid of endangering Edward's beloved, and Bella sinks into an overwhelming depression. Months later, she finally emerges from her funk to rebuild her life, focusing on her friendship with besotted teen Jacob from the reservation. Bella's unhealthy enthrallment to Edward leads her into dangerous and self-destructive behavior despite her new friends, and supernatural complications are bound to reappear. Bella's being hunted by an evil vampire, and Jacob's adolescent male rage turns out to be incipient lycanthropy: It seems many Quileute Indians become werewolves in the presence of vampires, their natural enemies. (March 23 - May 20 / will shoot in the ancient Tuscan city of Volterra for two weeks in May - Release date Nov. 20, 2009)
We shall see if this holds true! However, given that there is a petition to get Volterra in New Moon, looks like Volterra is not necessarily set in stone yet, so this could be B.S.
