News Round-Up: December 12

Catherine Hardwicke spoke to MTV about the Twilight DVD which is due to be released next year. She revealed details about the commentaries, deleted scenes, bloopers, montages, and other exciting stuff that she wants to include. She also talked about her recording session with Rob and Kristen for the commentaries.

Rosario Dawson, Rob Pattinson's co-star in his next movie, Parts Per Billion, reveals more about the movie and Rob's role in it. [Sounds interesting.]

Like everyone else in the industry, Reelz Channel is chiming in with their choices for who should helm New Moon.

For those with a more technical interest in the Twilight film, Make-Up Artist Jeanne Van Phue reveals her make-up techniques for the film, and in the same article, we see the character sketches that she used as reference for the look of some of the characters for the first time. In another website, she specifically described Nikki Reed's make-up regimen for Rosalie.

We don't normally post Hot Topic merchandise updates because they're really not available locally, but this one is just too... amusing not to post. Twilight Edward Body Shimmer. [Now you know how they achieved the sparkle effect in the movie, because you know, they only had $20 for special effects.

...

...
[insert Sparkling Edward sound effect here]
...

...

Kidding. :p
] More Hot Topic Twilight merch here.

In today's installment of the New Moon Telenovela: Celebuzz is reporting that Taylor Lautner is definitely out, and now NewMoonMovie.org is reporting that Michael Copon (Scorpion King, One Tree Hill) might just have gotten that role. Also, Entertainment Weekly seems fairly certain that Chris Weitz is indeed about to be hired as the new pilot of the New Moon Express. [Please take all of these stories with a grain of good quality salt mined from First Beach, after all, Summit hasn't released an official statement, and one of these sites is reporting that the new actor that will take on the Jacob role should have good chemistry with Kristen Bell (NOTE THE SARCASM). Just sayin'.]

And if you need some cheering up on this rainy day, no need to leave the house [there's a big rally in Makati and that spells traffic hell], hit your kitchen and make some Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge [you know you need the sugar rush after all the dramz]. If you just want to laugh, preferably at something Twilight-themed and Christmasy, watch The Twilight Before Christmas [hilarious, and the acting is spot on].



If you just want to see some bloodshed, pay homage to Emmett and take a look at the Things Bears Love. Random! [I know, I know, a couple of these links aren't Twilight-related, but what the Hale, right? We all need a diversion before the dramz dazzles us all to undeath.]

    Nooo! I LOVE TAYLOR!!!!

    But, you know, Michael Copon is Filipino. So maybe we can rejoice even just a little bit.

    Oh wow, really?! I didn't know! Okay, that softens the blow a bit if ever totoo nga. But still... Taylor. Wah!!!!

  3. Jei said...
     

    I also didn't know until I Googled it. I haven't heard of him before.

    Still... we all have learned to love Taylor as Jacob, and this news really hurts. :-(

    Thank God for that one!

    But still, even though Michael Copon is half-Filipino, I don't think that he would fit the role as Jacob Black. Yeah, he might be tall, dark, handsome, and well-built... but from what I've seen in his past projects, he isn't that great actor at all. He's just plain eye candy to me.

    Well, that's my opinion.

    STEVEN STRAIT AS JACOB BLACK! :)

    I have seen the link you've posted (NewMoonMovie.org)... Hmmm. I've seen some not-nice comments about Michael being a Filipino (because Jake is, as we all know, Native American). But I say, so what if he's Filipino? He is an actor!

    Oh well, let's just hope this is all just a rumor.

    The rain, like tears
    so appropriate, you know
    for all news that's sad

    On to other news:
    I was watching Nokia Football Crazy last night on Star Sports (don't know why), when the hosts suddenly flashed these totally cool Twilight merchandise--mugs, a shirt, CDs, a poster---a WHOLE BAG OF GOODIES they're giving away if you answer the question:
    WHO IS THE AUTHOR OF THE TWILIGHT NOVEL?
    They flashed an email:
    feedback@footballcrazy.tv
    where people can send the answer, with a chance to win THE BAG. Of course I joined (They didn't say it was for Singaporeans only).
    Let's all join!

    My goodness gracious! The Body shimmer! hahahaha But I am very much guilty of purchasing Shimmer lotion from Body Shop to get that sparkling effect everyday:)) hahahahahaha

    I think even though Michael's Filipino and all, I don't believe he'd be a fit Jacob!!!! I wanna see me some Taylor hotness! hahahaha or if they're really gonna replace Taylor, make Jacob Steven Strait! hahahahaha

    You guys are so funny. Haha. I was so LOL-ing throughout the whole entry.

  11. frustratedtwilighter said...
     

    OH no! no! no! NO! he doesn't fit the part..! i'm a proud FILIPINO but copon is simply not good enough to play jacob black! when i see copon all i can remember was he's-the-guy-from-one-tree-hill-that's-"friends-with-benefits"-with-brookedavis!come on! i love taylor, but if they'll replace him, find someone more suitable for it! like the guy from the covenant, he's stephenie meyer's choice for jacob in the first place! wooh! glad that's off my chest now... ;p

  12. Rome said...
     

    Hmmm... Michael Copon???

    Well, I checked his IMDB page and it says he's half-Filipino. Objectively speaking, he looks like an older and taller version of Taylor Lautner from the pictures available. I hardly remember seeing him in OTH but I guess I'll have to watch.

    But still... Taylor... WAH! [quoting CdL]

  13. Rome said...
     

    Reading and watching Catherine Hardwicke discuss DVD details makes me sad. =(

    oh i thought i'll be the first one to tell that micheal copon was a half filipino....:(
    i saw it last night in the twinews account in friendster....
    actually i'm excited for this one
    i dont really feel taylor as jacob... i think thats the reason why i hate jacob because of him.... (i'm so sorry to all taylor lautner fans... i didint mean to hurt you, its just my opinion)
    but i thought lautner already signed up for new moon and eclipse? iam looking forward to see him pa nmn in the next twilight franchise
    and i also heard that they will film new moon and eclipse back to back
    is this true?

    i cant believe we cant have twilight merch here...
    i wanna have them all
    iam saving all my money for school just to avail one but ugh!
    i am so frustrated i wanna have twilight merch huhuhu!

  16. Charlene said...
     

    wtf!??
    TAYLOR'S NOT COMING BACK?!

    Summit is ruining the franchise by making all these sudden changes and rushing NM! Twilight hasn't even been out at other countries, and now they're already RE-CASTING?! I am so pissed right now. AND THEY'RE ONLY GIVING $50m for NM after Twilight grossed over a hundred?!

  17. beari said...
     

    micheal copon is hot.
    he'd be perfect as jacob.

  18. anne said...
     

    my personal opinion is this.
    first
    i think that it's sooo rude and unproffesional for them to replace taylor. i mean, i can't imagine how taylor felt the moment he learned this. i haven't heard any issues like this. COME ON. was it like, 'sorry tay, you don't fit the role' WHAT THE HECK.

    second
    chris weitz to direct new moon? well it's kind of okay i think. i haven't seen any of the films he directed so i have no clue. but having directed american pie makes me doubt lol. i still believe that they should have gotten mike newell of HP because he's really good.

    third
    i saw michael copon's pic. and he looks weird to me. i don't know why.

    fourth
    oh i think the guy who played warren peace in sky high could be okay as jacob black.

    fifth and last.
    i think they should really seek the help of stephenie in doing the screenplay. the script for twilight was bad. there were weird lines that did not fit the scenes...blah blah blah. the script for the 1-4 of HP are really good.


    sorry for the grudge.....
    but i do love twilight it's just that you know.....

  19. anne said...
     

    STEVEN STRAIT IS ONE OF STEPHENIE MEYER'S FAVORITE TO PLAY AS JACOB. NOW WHY DON'T THEY EVER LISTEN WHO CREATED THESE BOOKS?!!!
    THEY DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER HER OPINIONS. WOW THAT'S JUST WEIRD.


    STEVEN STRAIT REALLY IS PERFECT FOR NEW MOON!!!!! CAN'T U PEOPLE LIKE IMAGINE? MICHAEL COPON IS SOO NOT GONNA HAVE CHEMISTRY WITH KRISTEN BECAUSE HE'S TOO OLD AND IS SOO WEIRD LOOKING.
    BESIDES STEVEN REALLY IS GOOD IN ACTING.


    LIKE SO WHAT IF HE'S FILIPINO? IS THAT WHAT YA'LL CARE? LIKE THAT'S WEIRD. JUST TO HAVE SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF? OH SHEEZ. THAT'S SO WEIRD. OKAY? ! IM FILIPINO ALRIGHT BUT COME ON PEOPLE. THE TWILIGHT SERIES HAVE BEEN A DISASTER IN THE FILM AND I PREDICT IT WILL BE TOO IN THE NEXT ONE.

  20. isabelle said...
     

    I think he fits the role. Can't wait to see him face to face with Edward.

  21. edwardlovesjec said...
     

    oh i love it
    if steven strait will become jacob i think it'll be like a fish bone in robert's neck, know why
    as we can see the competition that you were excpecting is on... steven strait was one of robert's competitor for edward's role...
    me, team edward also pictured steven as edward so if he'll be jacob, i dont know, but those who's team edward and promised to never be a team jacob will hesitate...
    lets just wait and see what will happened next....
    (i cant wait)
