Twilight sequel New Moon is officially on its way.
“I can tell you the original cast will all be coming back,” screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg told People. “They’re on set right now, in Vancouver! They’re all up there prepping the movie to start shooting very soon.”
In addition to being stoked about having the film underway, Rosenberg is praising new director Chris Weitz.
“Chris Weitz directed The Golden Compass, which was a beautiful-looking film,” Rosenberg said. “And I think it’s wonderful we have someone who has worked with CGI animals … that will be a big part of New Moon. I’m delighted we have someone who’s so expert at that.”
She also shoots down reports that High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens will be in New Moon as werewolf Leah Clearwater because Leah doesn’t appear in New Moon, but the third novel Eclipse.
