New Moon and Eclipse Auditions

Summit Entertainment has started preparing the sequel New Moon, based on Stephenie Meyer's second book in the series, and to contain costs, the studio is filming the third book, Eclipse, back to back using a new director now that Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke is being replaced.

    BURBANK, CA, December 01, 2008 /24-7PressRelease/ -- "Twilight," the film that drew legions of fans of Stephenie Meyer's vampire book series, earned an estimated $70.5 million in North American box-office receipts during its opening weekend. The movie rang up the fourth-highest November opening weekend of all time. That's an extraordinary result for an independently produced film that cost just $37 million to make and was passed over by Paramount's MTV Films.

The film, tells the story of a Romeo and Juliet-type romance between a mortal and a vampire. As with the "Harry Potter" franchise, "Twilight" tapped into a rabid fan base. The series of four books has sold 25 million copies worldwide and generated more than 350 fan sites.

Summit has now officially announced two sequels based on the second and third books, "New Moon", and "Eclipse". Now that "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke is being replaced, the next two installments of Stephenie Meyer's vampire book series will be filmed back to back. The casting and auditions information is available for actors and extras who wish to work on the films.
