TWILIGHT SAGA NEWS JUNE 18TH: MELISSA ROSENBERG, JULIA JONES, NEW ECLIPSE CLIP & MORE

Melissa Rosenberg Clears ‘Breaking Dawn’ Rumors

Hi y’all! Not sure where some of you got the impression I intended to leave birth scene out of Breaking Dawn, but it’s inaccurate. Of course the birth scene will be in there! And the sex scenes! And the feathers! And the blood! Perhaps you misinterpreted what I said about not needing to see BUCKETS of blood in order to convey the terror of the birth scene. But rest easy all! xoxo Mel

Meet Julia Jones, ‘Eclipse’s’ Lone Lady Werewolf

www.fearnet.com: Among the new characters introduced in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is Leah Clearwater, the Wolf Pack’s one and only female shape shifter. Understandably, Leah’s more than a little bitter about her new lycan status; you’d hate life, too, if your werewolf boyfriend dumped you because he “imprinted” on your BFF and you were forced to join his pack (and hear his thoughts) for all of eternity.

Describe the audition that landed you the role of Leah Clearwater.

I have had a relationship with the casting director, Rene Haynes, for a couple of years; she cast me in at least one other thing. I went in and I read for her and for David Slade, spent about 20 minutes working on the character and figuring it out, and I came back about a week later and read for Renee and David and some of the producers again. And then I waited a whole month and heard that I got it, and then I waited another month until I could tell anyone! So it was normal in the beginning, and then pretty bizarre.

What scenes did you read during the casting process?

It was a scene pretty much straight out of the book, Breaking Dawn. The scene where I come and tell Jacob that I want to join his pack.

You and Boo Boo Stewart are new to the cast, playing new additions to the Wolf Pack who are brother and sister.

Boo Boo I think is in just one scene. I hope to [work more with him in Breaking Dawn]; that’s a really fun one. I have a younger brother, also, so that’s a dynamic I’m familiar with, and I love my younger brother so it would be fun to have one on screen for two more movies.

Emma Roberts deletes Twitter account after ‘Twilight’s Team Edward fans find out she’s Team Jacob

Robert Pattinson didn’t seem to mind when Emma Roberts revealed on “The Tonight Show” that she is on Team Jacob — but Team Edward definitely did.

Since telling Jay Leno she preferred the hunky werewolf to the brooding vampire on Tuesday’s “Tonight Show,” Roberts has been bombarded by nasty tweets from Pattinson’s fans.

They were so vicious, in fact, that the 19-year-old actress was forced delete her Twitter account, E! Online reports.

“Team Jacob? Ewwwwwwwww!!!!! >.<,” wrote one user, whose comment was mild compared to several others.

20 Things to Do Before Watching ‘Eclipse’

The final countdown to Eclipse has begun, and we know you Twi-hards out there are writhing in anticipation. As you’re waiting to check out the intense battle scenes, see Edward’s golden eyes or Jake’s muscular physique on the IMAX screen, here are 20 fun things you can do with your friends to pass the time.

  • 1. Read “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella”

The fifth installment of the Twilight book series brings plenty of surprises. Writer Stephanie Myers says reading “Bree Tanner” before seeing Eclipse will provide fans with additional background information to enjoy the film even more.

  • 8. Listen to the Eclipse Soundtrack

The soundtrack is already available online for purchasing, packed with 15 tracks of alternative, indie and even R&B songs. Muse, Meyer’s favorite band, is listed with the first single titled “Neutron Star Collision.” Music has always been an integral part of the movies and books. As with all her Twilight novels, Meyer has created her own Eclipse playlist (with lots of Muse songs), as well as a “Bree Tanner” playlist.

  • 12. Read “Eclipse”

If you haven’t yet, there’s still time! Stephenie Meyer crams her third Twilight novel with all the familiar elements – blood lust, hot vampires, hot wolves, the evil Volturi, and heats things up a notch by throwing in Victoria’s whole army of vampires! As you can imagine, condensing 629 pages into a two-hour screenplay is a daunting task for screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg. To get all the details, reading Meyer’s “Eclipse” is a must! And if you’re a fast reader, plowing through “Twilight” and “New Moon” (for the hundredth time if you’re a Twi-hard), will be a cinch.

Wow, that new behind the scenes was amazing! Edward and Carlisle train together, if my memory serves me right they went all against Jasper, if that did change in the film I don’t mind. The more we get to see of the Cullens fighting is fine with me :) This is just more excitement to get the fans ready for the big day! On the other hand, poor Emma, those people who just tweeted nonsense should not be called fans. They bring a bad example to those who do know how to behave themselves. Could it have gone so far that they made them delete her account? Some of my friends are Team Jacob, some are even Team Demetri.

What are some of the scenes you’re looking forward to seeing in Eclipse?
