"Consider this nothing more than a rumour - if only because our source, though seemingly on the level and able to provide sufficient information to pass the BS detector, is a first-time scooper - but alas, it’s too good not to print, so we are, but with that disclaimer. And, quite frankly, there’s no real reason why this wouldn’t be true.
According to the tipster, who works in licensing, Stephenie Meyer’s book The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner - released in March - is headed to the big screen. Tanner, of course, is a character that popped up ever-so-briefly in this year’s The Twilight Saga : Eclipse.
Tanner is the newborn that surrenders to Carlisle and is killed by Jane at the end of the book.
“It goes without saying Summit want to continue this franchise… Tanner is the one they’re looking at post-Breaking Dawn”, we were told in an email.
Pushing for more information, our tipster said “It’s too early to talk casting, and everything we’re hearing is just speculation or off a wish list, but I don’t believe they plan on using the original actress,Jodelle Ferland, for the spin-off film. It’s all about numbers and names - you guys know that.”
We asked which names they were hearing and had an email sent back, a couple of hours later, with : “Chloe Moretz. Elle Fanning.”
Both those names come as no surprise - Moretz (Kick-Ass, Let Me In) is the go-to girl for most young female roles in recent months, while Fanning is not only the sister of a Twilight cast member but carries that famous surname.
More if and when we hear it."
What do you think Twifans, is this just a *rumor* or maybe a possible *fact*... if it is true, would you go see the movie?
EDIT: TWILIGHT LEXICON GOT WORD FROM SUMMIT THAT THIS IS ALL *SPECULATION AT THE MOMENT*...TAKE THAT FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH...
