Here’s a casting news update from the world of Twilight. Earlier this week we heard that, due to manager Guy Oseary‘s involvement as movie producer, Madonna might be appearing in the upcoming Twilight sequel New Moon … in some capacity. While it was reported that her association with the film may be limited to just appearing on the movie’s soundtrack, there were whispers that may also appear in the film as a character as well. Today, we are hearing that Maddy will deffo NOT be appearing IN the film but will, more likely, have a song on the soundtrack:
Madonna may not be seen in “New Moon” after all. Citing on a source close to the production, Entertainment Weekly reported contrary to the circulating rumors suggesting that Madonna will make an appearance in the”Twilight” sequel, Summit Entertainment have no plans in bringing the “Evita” star into the project. Though slamming the casting rumor, the trade hinted on the possibility of her making a contribution to the sequel’s soundtrack. “However, because Madonna’s manager, Guy Oseary, is a producer on the project, there is some talk of her providing songs for the sequel,” EW’s report read. Still, it should be noted that no deals have been set in stone so far on the matter. An adaptation to Stephenie Meyer’s second novel of her “Twilight” series, “New Moon” will be directed by Chris Weitz and penned by Melissa Rosenberg. To see the return of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Ashley Greene, Taylor Lautner and other original stars, it will be filmed in mid-March in Vancouver before moving to Italy in May.
And Twilighters the world over heave a collective sigh of relief. Judging by the response from just the Pink readers, I don’t think that anyone thought that the idea of Madonna starring in some way in the upcoming Twilight movie was a good idea … at all. I, personally, believed that she would most probably get a spot on the movie’s soundtrack … but it wasn’t unfathomable for me to see her secure a tiny cameo spot in the film as well … mebbe as an elder Vampire who exclusively feasts on the blood of much younger men, of the Latino variety. That’s a role that I think she could really sink her teeth into. Ah well. And so, New Moon is saved … for now.
