wolfpack Twilight Sagas New Moon Reveals The Wolf Pack

Summit Entertainment has made a casting announcement for New Moon regarding the wolf pack, who play an essential part of the story for in the sequel to last year’s Twilight.

The wolf pack members share history with the Cullen family and in this movie they act as protectors for humans against vampires. Taylor Lautner who plays Jacob Black in Twilight is of course, back for the sequel and is also a member of the wolf pack.

I’ve taken the casting announcement part of the press release for you to see:

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.

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.

I applaud Summit for selecting appropriate actors for these roles rather than simply casting recognizable actors – They obviously have a strong enough fanbase to do this and are riding on the success of last November’s Twilight which brought in over $370 Million in worldwide box office sales.

So, now they’ve completed casting for New Moon and are set for filming which is supposed to begin this week.

Are you Twilight fans excited for the quick release of the sequel or does the speed of its production concern you?

The Twilight Saga: New Moon opens November 20, 2009.

  1. What kind of Wolf Pack is this!?!?!

    Where the hell is Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, Syxx, Konnan, Macho Man, Sting & Luger!?!
    nWo 4 Life!

  2. Was pretty indifferent to this article, just have a ton of friends that like all that is Twilight and I try to keep them up-to-date.

    But SK47, really, I died laughing.

  3. I like this Wolf Pack! and Im so glad there unknowns. Dakota as Jane got me a bit worried.

  4. This pack WILL work! they all look like 16-20 years old and they look fun but at the same time intense. Like family, well a pack. I feel good about their picks!!! Very pleased. Good job Summit! Congrats to the pack for their signing to New Moon.

  5. I Like the look, i’m just concerned. Will they be using the same guy who was cast as Sam and Embry in the last ones? or are they out? Wont it be weird to have different people since we fans know who was who?

  6. they wont be using sam & embry. the guy who is to the left of Jacob is supposed to be the new sam, its unfortunete but thats teh business i guess.

  7. lol SK47,

    That would make the movie much more popular (and hilarious) amongst the male fanbase.

  8. Well I think the pack looks good, but I am conceened about them releasing it so soon. Is it going to be good? lol. I am not so sure about dakota as Jane, I think the whole saga should be unknowns.

  9. The wolf pack looks adorable. Good choices. I could easily the Twilighters investing their fandemonium in this group. (Is fandemonium a word? Well, it should be.) I hope that kid gets to keep his glasses. I like the idea of a nerdy werewolf/reservation kid.

  10. Rob and Reverend
    Imagine if the real Wolfpac actually came out and gang beat down the main vampire guy, the dude with the monotone expression on his face which all the eleventeen year olds love. Then perform all their finishing moves, spray paint a body outline on him and nWo all over his back? HA, that would be greatness!!!

  11. What I want to know is where are the original wolfpack. I thought the other two guys in twilight were going to be part of the wolf pack. I mean they are going to have to have 12 all together by eclipse. I’m kinda happy and kinda not, I really think the original guys should be there too.

  12. I wonder who’s playing Sam Uley??
    What bout Embry? and Paul? and Jarred?
    And Quil?

  13. i’m not much of a werewolf fan (Team cullen all the way) and the new moon book sorta depressed me cause the cullens were gone… but i hope the movie will be good… and this pack looks good too. contrary to others, i love dakota as jane, she fits the part plus she’s a great actress… i think there should be less unknowns coz i really want the acting to be good.. so the movie will be good too… i hope they get experinced actors and actresses, but that’s just my opinion.

  14. So what does one do with their glasses when morphing into a huge wolf?

  15. I figure they spend a lot of money on replacing them. :-P

    Vic

  16. The guy at the bottom left sould be Sam, for obvious reasons.

  17. The ones to Jacob’s side should be Quil and Embry.

  18. Now that’s what im talking about-some fine native boys.

  19. Good looking choices! I like that they are pretty much using unknowns. That gives struggling actors a chance instead of big names that already have their career established. Not quite sure how I feel about Dakota being in it yet but she is a good actress so I will give her a chance. I love that they cast real native american/ first nation people! I’m looking forward to this movie big time!

  20. I think the one under Jacob, obviously, <3 Seth <3, he looks like Seth and well i just bet anyone willing to bet against me that it will be Seth! And the one to far left, i think its Paul he gots that look, and obviously the one next to Jacob, Sam.
