In a recent press release, Summit Entertainment has officially announced the wolf pack from the upcoming “Twilight” Sequel entitled The Twilight Saga: New Moon which has begun shooting in Vancouver. “New Moon” stars Robert Pattinson (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), Kristen Stewart, Nikki Reed (K-11), Ashley Greene (Skateland), Jackson Rathbone (S. Darko) Dakota Fanning and Kellan Lutz.

Los Angeles, CA March 23, 2009 – Summit Entertainment announced today that Native American/First Nation actors Chaske Spencer, Bronson Pelletier, Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon and Tyson Houseman have signed on to star as the members of the wolf pack in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON. In the film, the wolf pack defends humans against vampires although they have a tribal history intricately entwined with Edward Cullen and his family. The wolf pack members will join Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and fellow wolf pack member Taylor Lautner in the film directed by Chris Weitz which will be released domestically November 20, 2009.

In THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON, Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) but her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). Suddenly she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and finds her loyalties tested.

Each member of the wolf pack is of Native decent. Spencer is Lakota (Sioux), Pelletier is Cree-Metis, Meraz is Purepecha (Tarasco), Gordon is Hualapai, and Houseman, who was discovered at an open casting call, is Cree. Casting of the wolf pack was overseen by award-winning casting director Rene Haynes who is well-known for her work on Native projects ranging from DANCES WITH WOLVES to BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED KNEE.

The action-packed, modern day vampire love story and blockbuster success of the first film in the series entitled TWILIGHT was released in theatres on November 21, 2008 grossing $69.6 million domestically during its first weekend. To date the film has grossed nearly $380 million worldwide. TWILIGHT was released on DVD, Blu-ray and VOD this past Saturday, March 21st and sold over 3 million DVD units in its first day of release making it one of the top five best first day DVD releases over the past two years.

  1. Just an FYI…..Umm… that photo at the bottom is of Solomon & Krys who were in Twilight, and they were not re-cast in New Moon.

    ( I would have liked to see Solomon & Krys back)

  2. These are the ONLY two actors that should have remained on the casting sheet! Psychosicianicole, you got my agreement. My advice, do not put up old photos of actors that are no longer going to be in NM…it breaks my heart!

    *film director Chris Wietz and casting director Rene Haynes— WAKE-UP! and bring back Solomon and Krys!!

  3. I have never commented on any of these fan sites before, but it has to be said. #1 solomon and krys have NOT been re-casted in New Moon. #2 Her name is Bella, not “Ella”. #3 Robert Pattinson was in Harry Potter and the goblet of fire, not Harry Potter and the order of the phoenix. Well, at least you have the native American part right. Being of native descent myself, it is nice to finally see some of my own blood up on the big screen. Peace and Love, JenniferLee

    There have been numerous actors and actresses of Native American descent. This movie is not the first time for Native Americans to receive screen coverage. That said, the wolf pack are a handsome lot, both old set and the newbies.
