Wanted: Birth and Brawn

Apr 21st, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News

USA Today updated their site with more information on the wolf pack!

“They had to have papers that proved their heritage,” says director Chris Weitz, who was the one who insisted on hiring within the community. “And they had to be in good physical shape.”

The Twilight sequel is filming now, and between takes, the actors usually are working out with barbells, doing push-ups or chowing down on steak, Weitz says. “They went through wolf camp together, and they are in constant training. It paid off as a bonding thing for them and helped them to get to know one another. They drove each other to get more buff.”

No amount of weightlifting, however, would allow them to act out the wolf portion of their performances; the beasts are about the size of horses and race around on all fours.

Instead, the transformations are computer-generated, although one part of each wolf might seem familiar.

“They all have the actor’s eyes,” Weitz says.”

    so I’m pretty sure they messed up some of the info on the actors.. like it says that Alex is from Mesa and Kiowa is from Peach Springs.. but I know that Kiowa is from Mesa because I went to high school with his brother in Mesa
