New Moon and SAG Leaders Meet

New Moon

The Twilight sequel, New Moon, due out November of this year may be getting more tween star-power.

Vanessa Hudgens of High School Musical fame, who was rumored to be up for the role of werewolf Leah Clearwater, has apparently auditioned for the role. In a quick interview on the red carpet of the Golden Globes on Sunday, Twilight actress Ashley Greene was asked to comment on the potential new co-star. Enthusiastically, Green answered, “I think she'd be great.”

The Twilight series has a big enough following on its own but I'm sure they wouldn't mind drawing a few fans from High School Musical to sweeten the pot.

SAG Leaders Hold Emergency Meeting

Have no fear, it looks like film entertainment won't be interrupted in the near future.

It appears SAG board members, in an emergency two-day meeting in Los Angeles, will be putting the strike-authorization vote on hold. If guild members were to vote, a 75 percent yes vote would be needed to authorize a strike.

The strike authorization is not the only topic being discussed. The new moderate majority may also try to remove the current lead negotiator, Doug Allen due to increasing frustrations with his tactics surrounding the strike-authorization. The moderates, who gained control of the board four months ago, are eager to make changes in the organization.
