Our fine friends over at the Twilight Turkiye fan site have posted an interview (in Turkish) with Lana on the casting of “Twilight,” the progress of “New Moon” and the upcoming John Hillcoat film “The Road,” based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy (“No Country for Old Men“).
We were going to post Lana’s original answers, but this version adapted from Google Translate is a LOT more fun. Enjoy!
Hi, Honorable Lana Veenker
I’m from a website, which serves Twilighters in Turkey. Our Website is the biggest Twilight-Fan website in Turkey.
Sorry to disturb you, but if I can take 5 minutes, you will make more than 1000 Twilight fans happy. We have got some question for you, for “the most beautiful Casting Director of Twilight”, there are less than 10 questions, if you can answer any of them, and if you don’t break us, we will be pleased. Thanks already now.
Onur Kahveci: Why this profession?
Lana Veenker: I like the combination of talents and intellectual perspective, it is necessary for selection.
Onur Kahveci: “The Road” is on the way, do you know fully if exit date has been set?
Lana Veenker: “The Road” movie will run when I do not know, but I can not wait. It will be a great movie. The book was great and scenarios.
Onur Kahveci: “New Moon” “Twilight” Is that you can beat?
Lana Veenker: To look at this will be interesting. I think “New Moon” is much more difficult to screen as a story.
(Onur Kahveci: I asked a couple of things about the selection of players, but for New Moon” they do not work, so about that she says something is not known.)
Onur Kahveci: That Dakota Fanning will assume the role of Jane got some gossip. What you can say about this topic? What do you think? If you were elected, would be the best Jane who?
Lana Veenker: I like the idea of Dakota Fanning. I have not heard anything about other options.
Onur Kahveci: What do you think about choosing Entertainment Weekly’s Volturi? Stephen Meyer or Crispin Glover for Aro? For a character to character, Christopher Lee and Kristen Chenoweth for Jane and Caius have been recommended. Especially if we consider the reputation of Christopher….
Lana Veenker: Very interesting ideas, some suspense, I would be anxious to hear whom they have to choose.
Onur Kahveci: Some say Taylor Lautner’s Jacob Black character in “New Moon” will not continue…. the search is between other actors. Even Michael Copon was proposed. Steven Strait as Jacob was a spectacular preference for the fans. However Taylor takes again the role of Jacob. What thoughts about this issue? Instead of Taylor as Jacob, would you like someone?
Lana Veenker: Taylor I’m happy he is to hold his role; it’s hard for changes to work.
Onur Kahveci: Thanks for all the answers.
Lana Veenker: Important Not!
