Though the principal photography of vampire drama "Twilight" has been wrapped up months earlier, the cast and crew of the Summit Entertainment's romantic thriller are going back to the production set once again. They are getting back together starting on Monday, August 25, to shoot several extra scenes to spice up the movie even more.

Talking to MTV News, Carlisle Cullen's depicter, Peter Facinelli, suggested that the additional shooting is not reshoots of previous scenes. "They liked it so much, they are bringing us back for some encore time - to beef it up," he said. "A little salt and pepper." In the same positive tone, another cast member Taylor Lautner stated on Friday, August 22, "We actually just had a rehearsal at [director] Catherine Hardwicke's house the other day for a new scene. It was a ton of fun."

The additional filmings which will be done on Monday (August 25), Tuesday (August 26) and Thursday (August 28) have been hinted to contain a flashback scene explaining the background story of the Cullen family. "I can tell you it's a flashback scene," Facinelli shared. "It gives us a little bit of history of the Cullen family...They are just shooting a couple of different added scenes, and the scene I'm in, I can tell you it's me and Robert Pattinson...Rosalie and Emmett are in that scene."

Giving out more details, Lautner said that some of the new shots are taken to add his character, Jacob Black, to the end of the movie. "Well, I am going to be in the prom scene now, at the very end of the film," he explained. "At first we didn't film that, and now some people are saying they want to see a bit more of Jacob, and they want him in the prom scene at the end."

Adapted from Stephenie Meyer's bestselling novel of the same name, "Twilight" resolves around seventeen-year-old Isabella 'Bella' Swan, her mysterious vampire classmate, Edward Cullen, and their unlikely romantic relationship. Finding acceptance from one another, their romance blossoms. However, it puts Bella's life in grave danger as Cullen's nemesis comes to the town and sets his eyes on Bella.

Pushed up to be released on November 21, the Catherine Hardwicke-directed movie is also starred by Kristen Stewart, Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone, Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz. The script is provided by Melissa Rosenberg.

I was brought up around Mormons, (some family, though mostly friends) and they are wonderful people if you don't claim a faith of your own, (which I don't) but for god's sake, doesn't anyone want Edward and Bella to get into each others' pants? I've been thinking about having a good friend retype the scene in "Twilight" (just for me) when Edward takes Bella to the meadow and inserting some new kinda magic to be had on top of those wildflowers. I just want a totally new sexy wanton retake, and my friend is quite the romantic sensualist, so I am granting myself a whole re-read with a love scene inserted. Don't get me wrong, I love Stephanie Meyer, but I am 28 and want Edward and Bella to get it on! Not just that, but to actually make love, since there's such a burning, yet gentle connection between them both. Either way the yearning between them is almost enough to set me on fire. But a love scene implanted would just turn my world upside down in the best of ways. I actually grew up on the WA State Peninsula as well, so this is just a total godsend of a series from Meyer, and I would kiss the woman myself if I could for granting us with such an amazing escape into one of the finest novels/sagas/escapes I've ever laid my eyes on. Amazing!

["Well, I am going to be in the prom scene now, at the very end of the film," he explained."] If that's the case, i'm so totally glad they decided to add more scenes!! Why would they remove jacob from the prom scene??!! ugh,,, can't wait for the movie. i'm totally excited about the flashbacks. i was curious before if they'd actually explain carlisle's history. so, i HOPE they actually do it!!!

I hope it's as good as the books - and doesn't change too much just for hollywood.

i think this scene is when the cullens make the pack w/ the werewolves.. like when jacob is telling bella the story he's heard and stuff, you actually get to see what happened.. something like that...

I can't wait til the movie comes out! Three more months to go and I seriously don't know what I'm going to do until then. However, I do have plans to watch it at least 3 times during opening weekend because I'm going to be too busy hyperventilating the first two times to really sink my teeth in (pun intended). I have full faith in the entire cast and crew to make this movie a GINORMOUS hit!
