Catalina Sandino Moreno
By Jean Bentley – MTV.com
Colombian actress Catalina Sandino Moreno has signed on to play Maria in “Eclipse,” the third film in “The Twilight Saga” that’s set to begin filming in less than a week. The Oscar-nominated star of “Maria Full of Grace,” 2004′s drama about a pregnant teenage drug mule, will tackle some decidedly less heavy subject matter a vampire who creates an army of newborn bloodsuckers, including future Cullen family member and then-Confederate soldier Jasper Hale (Jackson Rathbone). Jasper becomes a key member of the army, helping Maria conquer Mexican territories.
Though “Twilight” covered the back story of swoon-worthy teen vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), “Eclipse” delves deeper into the pasts of the rest of his vampire coven. On Wednesday, Jack Huston was announced as Royce King II, the human fiancé of Rosalie (Nikki Reed) who plays a key role in her transformation into a vampire.
Huston and Moreno, who was last seen in 2008′s two-part Steven Soderbergh epic, “Che,” are the latest additions to an ever-expanding cast. Summit Entertainment made headlines last month when they announced the controversial decision to replace Rachelle Lefevre with Bryce Dallas Howard as Victoria, a vampire hell-bent on getting revenge on Edward and his human paramour Bella for killing her partner, James. Xavier Samuel and Jodelle Ferland have been cast as Victoria’s newborn vampires Riley and Bree.
The David Slade-directed “Eclipse” is set to be released next June. Chris Weitz’s installment, “New Moon,” the second film in the series, will hit theaters on November 20. A leaked French trailer for “New Moon” that made the Internet rounds on Wednesday showed the first glimpse of Dakota Fanning as Volturi guard member Jane, but it’s since been taken down

Ron Perlman, speaking with Fangoria Radio, gave the world an update on his long-gestating follow-up to Don Coscarelli’s Bubba Ho-Tep. In the new film Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires, Perlman will be replacing Bruce Campbell as Elvis in what is sure to be an over-the-top adventure unlike anything we’ve ever seen.
Perlman hopes to shoot the film in the fall, stating, “Well, I have this window that’s about to open. I’ll be done shooting Sons of Anarchy in September, and we’re hoping to get into production on Bubba Nosferatu: Curse of the She-Vampires in my hiatus between seasons two and three. I just spoke to Paul Giamatti (set to play Elvis’ manager, Colonel Tom Parker) and Don Coscarelli this morning, and we’re just moving the ball down the field, trying to get her done.”
Also reported in the same story is that Don Coscarelli’s favorite actor, and star of his Phantasm films, Angus Scrimm has joined the cast as a Boris Karloff-like horror star who Elvis meets on the set of a vampire movie.
About starring in the film, Perlman stated, “Elvis is so iconic because there was never anyone like him and never since. Elvis created an entire new place for that image. He’s so iconic, he’s mythic. I’m very titillated to see what it’s gonna be like to be inside the white jumpsuit.” The sequel currently has a proposed release date of 2011.
