Another casting speculation for "New Moon" has been thrown out. Reporting for E!, Marc Malkin exposes that "90210" star AnnaLynne McCord has been considered by the filmmakers behind the "Twilight"sequel as the potential actress to take on the role of gorgeous-looking Heidi.
Malkin further reports that insiders have claimed the 21-year-old actress has auditioned for the role which has been described to "be more like a cameo". If the Eden Lord of "Nip/Tuck" indeed secured the part of Heidi in the sequel, she will join her "90210" co-star Kellan Lutz, who will reprise his role as Emmett. Both McCord's rep and Summit Entertainment have yet to give comments on the speculation.
Described as a "fisher" who brings humans to the Volturi vampires to eat, Heidi isn't a major character in the "New Moon" book. Still, she is known as "bait" because she uses her stunning looks to attract humans. In the book, Bella describes the long-haired and violet-eyed character as having "exceptional, unforgettable" beauty.
Adapted from Stephenie Meyer's second novel of her "Twilight" series, "New Moon" is the sequel to hit vampire drama "Twilight". It follows Bella Swan as she deals with her personal conflicts following Edward Cullen's abrupt departure. The production of "New Moon" is scheduled to begin in mid-March in Vancouver followed with the filming in Italy in May. The Summit Entertainment vampire drama will see the return of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Ashley Greene, Taylor Lautner and other original stars. To be directed by Chris Weitz, it is scheduled for U.S. release on November 20.
