Years after the final Twilight movie was released, some serious on-set drama has come to light…
It comes from none other than Anna Kendrick.
“Yeah she only had a few scenes in that series, probably upset she wasn’t cast as Bella,” one fan commented.
Scroll on for the full story…
Twilight started out as a series of novels.
Written by the American author, Stephenie Meyer in 2008, the novel series has sold over 100 million copies worldwide.
And, in 2008, Summit Entertainment released their adaptation of the novels with the first movie, Twilight.
With Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson taking on the lead roles of Bella and Edward, Stephanie’s love story was not only brought to life — It was turned into a total phenomenon.
The world quickly became Twilight obsessed.
And it wasn’t difficult to see why…
Instead of portraying vampires as the typical blood-thirsty creatures that dwell in the darkness of gothic castles, she instead created a whole new league of vampires that we all quickly fell in love with.
But for a tie, things were all quiet on the Twilight front.
And, understandably, fans have been wondering over the years whether Meyer will be bringing anything else to the Twilight story.
As it stands, there are 4 Twilight books…
Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn — plus the additional book Midnight Sun.
And in incredibly exciting news this week, Meyer has confirmed that there is even more Twilight coming our way.
Meyer confirmed to USA Today that there are 2 more books in the works.
“I have got them outlined and a chapter written I think of the first one, so I know it’s there. I am not ready to do that right now, I want to do something brand new,” she said.
“For me, a lot of the joy of writing comes from creating and I really want to do a new world and new rules and new mythology. Mythology is kind of my thing.”
It’s not yet confirmed whether these 2 novels will be connected to Midnight Sun.
Or whether they could possibly be from a whole new character’s perspective.
Either way, it seems as though we might have some time to wait to find out!
But it has been revealed that there’s some serious drama in the Twilight world…
And it all comes courtesy of Anna Kendrick.
She played Jessica Stanley in all 4 Twilight movies — but it’s safe to say she doesn’t remember her experience too fondly!
She told Vanity Fair that the experience was a “hostage situation.”
“I really thought it was such a blow-off audition. I just thought, ‘well, I’ll you know, do as well as I can so that the casting director thinks of me for other stuff’. I actually saw my friend Mae Whitman at that audition and we were both like, ‘What are we doing here? We’re obviously not going to be this like mean girl character.’”
But they did cast Kendrick, and when she arrived at the filming location in Portland, she was in for a nasty shock…
She described it as “cold and miserable.”
“I just remember my converse being completely soaked through and feeling like, you know, this is a really great group of people and I’m sure that we would be friends in a different time, but I want to murder everyone.
“There was like something about it that was like, you know, like you go through like some trauma event, like people who survive like a hostage situation. You’re kind of bonded for life,” she recalled
Kendrick also claimed that after the first movie, the other kind of blurred into one.
“They all start to blend into one at some point because my whole job was just to go to like this family of very pale people who we never see eating,” she said.
“But you know, they just wanted me to like have something to do.
“I was in the fourth movie and it was just like a wedding scene where again, I’m like, ‘Mmm, these people are so weird,'” Kendrick joked.
“Everybody else has been like giving their blood, sweat, and tears to the project for months. I show up at the end and I’m like, ‘Guys, we did it’s over,’” she said.
