Rising starlet AnnaLynne McCord (“90210”) might be up for a role in the “Twilight” sequel (which, as Moviehole confirmed earlier today, is headed to Vancouver).
E! Online reports :
Iâ€™m hearing that filmmakers have been considering the idea of casting 90210 star AnnaLynne McCord as Heidi in the upcoming New Moon, the much-anticipated sequel to Twilight.
Heidi isnâ€™t a major character in the book, but McCord definitely has the gorgeous looks to pull it off.
The character is a â€œfisherâ€ who brings humans to the Volturi vampires to eat. Sheâ€™s also known as â€œbaitâ€ because of the way she uses her stunning looks to attract humans. In her brief appearance in the book, Bella describes Heidi as having â€œexceptional, unforgettableâ€ beauty. She has stunning legs, long hair and violet eyes.
Sources tell me McCord has auditioned for the role. â€œItâ€™s not a big part,â€ one of the sources said. â€œHeidi would be more like a cameo.â€
Director Chris Weitz is expected to start shooting the flick with Robert Pattinson & Co. next month in Washington state and Italy with a Nov. 20 release date. Summit has yet to make any major new casting announcements for New Moon. However, as I exclusively reported, Dakota Fanning is in serious talks to play Jane.
