The upcoming vampire drama Twilight is facing some recalls to add more scenes to the movie. But fear not, these are not reshoots, but simply adding more content.
MTV has just announced that the entire cast of the highly anticipated vampire drama Twilight is back shooting extra scenes for the film. According to their source, these aren’t reshoots but all new scenes to help flesh out the story a little bit more.
Peter Facinelli, who plays Carlisle Cullen in the flesh, has insured MTV that there is nothing wrong with the film as it stands now. Executives were just so happy with the wrapped film that they decided to add some more spice to it, making it the film that everybody is eagerly waiting for. Peter stated, “They liked it so much, they are bringing us back for some encore time to beef it up. Add a little salt and pepper.”
When a movie faces “reshoots” it typically means there is something wrong. Facinelli was wise to state very bluntly that they just want to add more to an already good film to make it great. They are not changing any of the existing scenes, just adding more.
Sometimes in extended cuts of movies on dvd we get to see long scenes that were cut for one reason or another and in many cases we like the longer version. In this case they realized that with a handful of extra scenes in the movie it could be better, so they dragged everyone involved back in to do some more. I like that they are not waiting for the dvd release to give us these scenes.
This show has an insane cult following that much like vampires do not like to be seen. I had never even heard of this before the promotion for the film has started. John mentioned the rabid devotion of Twilight fans at ComicCon and I tested these waters at FanExpo. There was a booth promoting the film (among 4-5 others) and handing out posters. I asked them which poster gets picked up more and they said without hesitation: Twilight.
Twilight looks to be the right replacement goth/fantasy fit as it too moved up its release date to November 21st – Thanksgiving weekend. (A good month after the Real Thanksgiving – Thanks Robin!) because of to Harry Potter’s eviction from the Christmas season.
