One of the most popular book series Twilight, written by American author Stephanie Meyer, is getting its movie version. If you haven’t read the books yet, you probably heard about it on TV or from your friend because Twilight fans are very excited about the movie.

For those who don’t know already, Twilight is a young adult novel that follows the story of seventeen-year-old Isabella Swan who moves to a small town called Forks. There she meets extremely handsome Edward Cullen who turns to be a vampire like the rest of his family. Edward tries to keep Bella away from him because of the danger he represents for her, but that can’t stop them from falling in love with each other. However, her vampire boyfriend is not the only danger for Bella; there comes another coven of vampires who are not “vegetarian”.

After the movie was announced to be in production, Twilight fans are searching for all possible ways to get more information about it. The director of the movie, Catherine Hardwicke, is famous for directing movies like Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown and The Nativity Story. She was also the production designer of many movies, so we are hoping for the best movie version of Twilight.

What excites Twilight fans even more is the cast. Kristen Stewart, who will play Bella, is a young American actress born in Los Angeles. She is known for her roles in movies The Messengers, Panic Room, Zathura, Catch That Kid and Into the Wild. Edward Cullen will be played by Robert Pattinson, an English actor who is famous for his role of Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Peter Facinelli will star as Carlisle Cullen, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme Cullen, Ashley Greene as Alice Cullen, Nikki Reed as Rosalie Hale, Kellan Lutz as Emmett Cullen and Jackson Rathbone as Jasper Hale. Cam Gigandet will play James, a tracker vampire who is the major antagonist of the movie.

At first some Twilight fans were a bit unhappy with the cast because everyone had different image of who should play their favorite character. Now, as filming goes on, the fans like the actors more and more. This movie won’t be just another movie for teenagers because not only teenagers like the book. That’s the reason why there are some fan communities like Twilight Moms. If you search the Internet, you will find all kinds of back-stage material, pictures of cast and even videos of fans who record everything they can manage to see during the filming. Twilight obsession is making this movie one of the most anticipated this year. All we can do now is wait and see will the movie fulfill our expectations. Of course, it probably won’t be like we imagined while reading the book, but it will be nice to see it on the big screen. Fans from all over the world guarantee the movie will have big audience.
