Breaking Dawn will be Two Movies!

By afterthebite · June 14, 2010 · 0 Comments · ·

It's been announced that Breaking Dawn will not just be one movie, but will be broken into two!

Summit Entertainment officially announced its decision to split the final "Twilight" adaptation, "Breaking Dawn," into two separate movies, says the Hollywood Reporter. The move makes sense for anyone familiar with the novels, since "Breaking Dawn" the book is somewhere in the neighborhood of 730 pages long.

Stephenie has a new vampire book

By afterthebite · March 30, 2010 · 0 Comments · ·

WHAA??? Did anyone see this coming?

Stephenie Meyer announced today the upcoming release of a new "novella" titled The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. And what's more? She's going to make the whole book available to read for FREE online.

Seriously awesome stuff; here's what Stephenie says about it:

Actually, this has been a surprise to me, too. The reason why it's a surprise was that I never intended to publish this story as a stand-alone book. I began this story a long time ago—before Twilight was even released. Back then I was just editingEclipse, and in the thick of my vampire world. I was thinking a lot about the newborns, imagining their side of the story, and one thing led to another. I started writing from Bree's perspective about those final days, and what it was like to be a newborn.

This story was something that I worked on off and on for a while, just for fun, in between the times I was writing or editing other Twilight novels. Later, when the concept for The Twilight Saga: The Official Guide came up, I thought that might be a good place for Bree. Her story is a nice complement to Eclipse; it explains a lot of the things that Bella never knew.

Then I got the news: my "short story" was nearly 200 pages long when typeset. It was too long to fit into the Guide—without ending up with a tome as heavy as the Oxford English Dictionary. My publisher approached me with the idea of releasing the Bree story on its own. One of the major benefits of this plan was that it would be out before the movie, so people would get to know Bree before they saw her in the film. That made sense to me, and we decided to go ahead with it.

Stephenie Meyer leads stable of new Mormon writers

By afterthebite · March 2, 2009 · 0 Comments · ·

The Boston Globe has an article today that points out that Stephenie Meyer is just one of a growing group of Mormon writers that focus on young adult fiction.

That Mormon writers have come to loom large in an increasingly popular literary genre can be linked to several unique characteristics of their faith and culture: an aversion to the sex and swearing that prevails in adult fiction, a propensity for large families that often means a child-focused life, and an affinity for fantasy writing.

It's Cheaper to Film in Canada

By afterthebite · February 28, 2009 · 0 Comments · ·

This article by Oregon Business Magazine outlines why filming for the Twilight sequel, New Moon, will take place in Vancouver, British Columbia, instead of Oregon or Washington.

Porter says filmmakers were partly concerned that Oregon wouldn’t have the production resources to support two Twilight sequels being made back-to-back. The lower Canadian dollar also made filming in British Columbia cheaper.

Estimates show that $20 million was spent in the state of Oregon during the filming of Twilight.

Stephenie Meyer tells Vogue magazine she is still an "amateur"

By afterthebite · February 28, 2009 · 0 Comments · ·

Big feature on Twilight author Stephenie Meyer in the March issue of Vogue magazine

Stephenie admits that she considers herself to be an amateur writer, but she does know her audience.

To her great credit, Meyer knows she is not Gertrude Stein. "I'm not a professional yet," she says. "I'm still just an amateur." But she knows her audience like Nielsen. "A twelve-year-old girl has already in her head imagined out fourteen different lives, including if she gets married, if she doesn't get married, if she falls in love with someone who lives in Paris," Meyer says. Indeed, one might argue her authorial success has something to do with her being surrounded by non-girls. "I live in a house filled with testosterone," she says. "There's always sports on my television, and there's nothing except hockey and scooters, and there's nothing of that side of myself left, and so it's great to have a different place to find it."

AnnaLynne McCord (from 90210) as Heidi?

By afterthebite · February 26, 2009 · 0 Comments · ·

Rumors have it that 90210's AnnaLynne McCord might be cast as the vampiress Heidi. 

The character is a "fisher" who brings humans to the Volturi vampires to eat. She's also known as "bait" because of the way she uses her stunning looks to attract humans. In her brief appearance in the book, Bella describes Heidi as having "exceptional, unforgettable" beauty. She has stunning legs, long hair and violet eyes.

Her 90210 costar Kellan Lutz—and rumored real-life boyfriend—played Emmett in Twilight and will return for the sequel.
