Sure, New Moon's producers are being understandably tight-lipped about where they will shoot the scenes from the upcoming movie in the Stephenie Meyer's movie adaptations of the Twilight book series. But we still applaud the Vancouver Sun for speculating and offering their own suggestions:
When Bella goes searching in the forest for the meadow where she and Edward had their first romantic encounter, it is described as a beautiful round opening in the forest and difficult to find, in part because there are no trails and in part due to the Washington state undergrowth. Bella "bushwhacks" her way in and is confronted by a vampire, Laurent, whose appetites are not so well controlled as Edward's. Stanley Park might do the trick for this scene, but it is so close to the city and so exposed to foot traffic that the shoot would not be secret for long.
Everett Crowley Park in southeast Vancouver has mature trees and undergrowth like those described in New Moon, as well as small open spaces that could serve as meadow. Compared with Stanley Park, it is almost devoid of human life. For total secrecy, Strathcona Park near Campbell River is beyond the reach of the urban vampire fan and nearby Elk Falls Park has one of the prettiest forest meadows on the West Coast.

TDN.com tells us that Chris Weitz toured Kalama High School last week to assess whether it would should be included in the making of New Moon movie. Filming is scheduled to being on the latest movie adaptation from Stephenie Meyer's Twilight book series in late March.
Several producers and director Chris Weitz — who didn’t direct the original “Twilight” — visited the school last week, said Kalama Superintendent Jim Sutton. The sequel is called “New Moon,” the title of the second of four novels in the popular series by author Stephenie Meyer.
“The whole point of the trip was to show Chris Weitz all the locations they used up here in the Northwest,” Sutton said.
The visit was short, and moviemakers didn’t commit to filming at the school again, Sutton said. It’s possible they shot enough footage during the filming of “Twilight” last spring to supply the sequel, he noted.
USAToday.com says there's a trend in Hollywood for werewolves in 2009, and the movie adaptation of New Moon (due in Nov 2009) will lead the "pack." (Get it?)
New Moon director Chris Weitz says he loves Stephenie Meyer's characterization of werewolves because they are "grounded in reality."
Meanwhile, he also says that Taylor Lautner, the actor playing the part of New Moon's Jacob, has "has packed on 29 pounds, most of it muscle."
