Exclusive Video Interviews with Edi Gathegi, Rachelle Lefevre, Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz – NEW MOON

Earlier tonight I was on the red carpet for the premiere of Summit Entertainment’s upcoming action sci-fi thriller “Push”. In case you haven’t heard of the film yet…click here to read the synopsis and watch some clips. And to those wondering if “Push” is any good…I’ve heard nothing but good things from the people that saw the press screening.

Anyhow, while on the red carpet tonight I managed to interview a number of people. And even though I’d love to post all of them tonight…I knew what the most important interviews were and it’s with the cast of “Twilight”.

As most of you know, the second book in the series is called “New Moon” and it’s scheduled for release this November. But what might surprise all of you is…they haven’t started filming yet! Yup, Summit Entertainment is walking the difficult path of trying to make a movie with a lot of special effects and release it in the same year with little time for post production. While this is definitely going to be a challenge, it can be done. It’s called overtime. And with the money they made off “Twilight”, I think they can afford it.

But let’s get back to why you’re here.

As I said, I interviewed a few of the cast tonight and they all spoke about “New Moon”. I asked them if they’d read the script, when they were shooting the movie, where they were shooting, what were they looking forward to film, what has this experience been like and a lot more.

Trust me, if you’re a fan of “Twilight” you’ll really love these interviews as it gives you an update as to where each of them are right now and what’s on the horizon.

So enough of my words…watch the interviews! And at the very bottom of this article are some links to our previous “Twilight” coverage from the press junket of the first film.
