Last year they had Bella cast in November and then Edward in December. I think the rest of the cast was announced either the end of January or beginning of February, so we should be hearing it soon, but we may have to wait until February.

I just hope they do not let the large budget go to their heads and forget about the great story beneath the special effects.

I completely agree. Though the special effects in the movie could be amazing, it is really the story line that makes it. I hope that Kristen will be up to portraying the heartbreak that really makes the story, and I have faith that she will. As for the micalculations in Twilight, I personally believe that they couldn't be changed if they had a higher budget. As you said, money won't fix a flawed script or screenplay.

Agreed. I hope that the special effects are better... Not that they weren't good in Twilight, just that they could have been better. But, I don't think that money will solve many things. It was the screenplay, script and I guess the storyboard. I just hope that the special effects are as awesome as the book makes them seem like they would be. Espically the cliff diving, wolves, Italy, and the motorcyles.

Everyone is making me all worried. Ha ha. I didn't think too much about how much special features are needed in the following movies... And I think they failed at the minimal ones in Twilight... Oh no :shock:

They better not mess this up! Ha ha.

Melissa ruined the first movie, hopefully she will do better with these two. Why couldn't the fans have written the script? It would have been SO much better!

I'm putting a lot of faith in the fact Chris will turn things around and fix the mess Catherine and everyone else with the first movie made. (Well not everyone.)

Please do better! :(

What a higher budget can, in fact, help is a longer movie. Obviously quantity doesn't mean quality, but for New Moon, more movie time could also mean less stuff cut from the book - which I believed was a huuuge sacrifice for the first movie.

Oh, and the tagline "The Cullens aren't the only family with a secret" is aweeeeesome! I hope they put that on the trailer.

LOVE the one "Forbidden to Remember; Terrified to Forget." THAT one sends chills up my mortal spine. :)

Can't wait to see who's gonna be playing the Volturi gang. ;)

Yeah, I can't wait to see who plays the Volturi and the pack.

Here's a random question...

How old are the members of the Volturi supposed to be??
What? Are they like twenties or fifties. I always thought that they were in their fifties. Just because that's what I assumed. But, maybe since they are friends with Carlisle they are like his age...early twenties. Carlisle is twenty-three. Also, another point I just thought of. I don't know who many people heard the rumors that Ben Barnes is aiming for the role of Aro... But, this guy is definalty early twenties. So, I have no idea what to think...

Hmmm I guess I have to re-read the book to remember what kind of age-frame I had in mind for them, since I don't think it's mentioned. There might be a better explanation on that on Stephenie Meyer's FAQ on her website.

I guess Jane seems like she could be a teenager, Aro and his brothers could probably be in their late 20s or early 30s, I'm guessing.

Ben Barnes, huh? Interesting choice for Aro, if the rumor is true. But somehow I always pictured them to be more Italian-looking. Assuming the characters are, uh, Italian. If you guys saw Interview with The Vampire (the movie), I always pictured the Volturi like Armand, Santiago and that evil clan from Paris. Those vampires were not kidding around ;) :)

Well I always pictured them old, it is never really specified. But I think they are supposed to be old since they were so popular for painters to admire, I would think that means they are gorgeous and young. Well not now, now they are all dusty looking :?
