[Update: We now have more pics of the Volturi to share!]
All right you twi-hards (I know you're out there), we've got some great news for you. Not only has the final cast list for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse been confirmed, but we've rounded up some new pictures of the malevolent Volturi from The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
Let's start with Eclipse.
To accompany stalwart Twilight veterans Robert Pattinson (playing Edward Cullen) and Kristen Stewart (playing Bella Swan), Eclipse has added a number of new actors to its mix. Among the newbies are Xavier Samuel as Riley, Catalina Sandino Moreno as Maria, Jack Huston as Royce King, Julia Jones as Leah, BooBoo Stewart as Seth, and Jodelle Ferland as Bree. Bryce Dallas Howard will also be joining the cast as Victoria, controversially replacing actress Rachelle Lafevre. Eclipse was written by screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg and is being directed by David Slade.
For those who need a little primer on The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which is the third film in the Twilight series, here's a description of the film from Summit Entertainment's official press release.
In THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.
