Beyond “Eclipse” – What’s next for the “Twilight Saga” cast?

Though Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and the rest of “The Twilight Saga” cast are best known for their “Twilight” roles, most of the actors in the Saga have more brewing during and after “Twilight”.  After researching multiple sources, below is a thorough list of upcoming projects that the actors are involved with or pursuing. ( If you’ve heard differently, or have something to add, please add a note in the comments. )

So,  if you’re wondering what on earth you’re going to do once you’ve seen “Eclipse” for the 17th time, you have these other films to look forward to!

Authors Note: “Breaking Dawn” is not greenlit.  Therefore, any reference to “Breaking Dawn” is speculation at this point.

Kristen Stewart:
K-11: Though this movie is receiving funding, it might not start filming this year between Kristen’s schedule and the loss of Nikki Reed (who is no longer a part of the picture).  Kristen, however, is still attached.

An American Girl: Kristen is attached to this film, though no contract is signed.

Breaking Dawn: “Timing TBD”.

Despite only these two projects on the radar, we have no doubt that Kristen will have PLENTY of projects to keep her busy.  In 2010 alone, she’s debuting “The Yellow Handkerchief” (technically debuted in 2008), “The Runaways”, “Welcome to the Rileys” and “Eclipse”.
Robert Pattinson
Breaking Dawn: Timing TBD.

Water for Elephants: Though this movie will film in 2010, it won’t hit theaters until 2011.

Bel Ami:  If you’re an RPattz fan, you’ve undoubtedly seen recent pictures and videos of Rob dressed in lovely Parisian garb. Again, though filming will be completed in 2010, this film is set to debut in 2011.

Unbound Captives: Though Rob is attached to this film, with his current schedule, the studio likely won’t be able to start filming until 2011, particularly if/when Breaking Dawn gets greenlit.  However, Rob Pattinson and Hugh Jackman is a whole lotta pretty for one film!

Kellan Lutz
Meskada:  With filming completed, the movie will be out this year.  Check out a clip below!

A Nightmare on Elm Street: With a release date of April 30th, it will be interesting to see happy-go-lucky (but loves-a-good-fight) Emmett Cullen try to fight Freddy Kreuger.  Although, since vampires never sleep, Emmett may have a leg up 😉
Warrior (co-starring with Ashley Greene)

War of the Gods: Currently filming, this movie is set to release in 2011.
Love, Wedding, Marriage: Co-starring with Mandy Moore and currently filming, this movie is set to release in 2010.
Breaking Dawn: Timing TBD.
Death Games: Though not yet signed for this film, Kellan Lutz is in negotiations to star along side Samuel L. Jackson.  Filming starts in May in Louisiana.

Peter Facinelli:
Breaking Dawn: Timing TBD.
Paz (aka “Paz: The Vinny Pazienza Story”): It will be very interesting to see peacemaker Dr. Carlisle Cullen play a boxer.  But after some newborn vampire butt-kicking in Eclipse, he might be perfectly set up to play the role.  The film will release in 2011.

The Absinthe Drinkers: This film is listed as pre-production on IMDB along with a 2010 UK release date.  Doubtful.  Let’s shoot for 2011 filming and release, assuming we are approaching “Eclipse” promotion and *fingers crossed* “Breaking Dawn” may start filming shortly after.

Thicker : Another interesting IMDB take. In pre-production and releasing in 2010.  My money is on 2011 for filming and release.

Loosies: This film will star Peter Facinelli and his wife, Jennie Garth.  Similar to “The Absinthe Drinkers” and “Thicker”, I doubt there will be a 2010 release date.  If Peter can fit all that into a year, he truly can move as fast as Carlisle.

Taylor Lautner
Breaking Dawn: Timing TBD.
Abduction: This timing looks much more realistic – 2012 release.
Cancun: Not must to add to this film.  It’s in development and Taylor Lautner is supposedly attached to the film, which is releasing in 2011.
Stretch Armstrong: Taylor Lautner will play Hasbros’ Superhero, Stretch Armstrong.  There was a bit of controversy when Taylor took this part, as it came at the same time that he pulled out of playing the lead in Mattel’s “Max Steel”.  This film is in pre-production and had a release date of 2012.

Anna Kendrick

Untitled Seth Rogen Project: Currently filming, Anna Kendrick plays a lead character where she’ll get to stretch her comedic chops.  This film is set to release in 2010.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: If you try to narrow down the genre of this film, it doesn’t look possible – adventure, action, fantasy, etc.  The film is set to release in August of this year.

Breaking Dawn: Timing TBD.

Dakota Fanning
Betsy and the Emperor: This film was originally set to star Dakota Fanning, then moved to Emily Watson, and is now supposedly back with Dakota Fanning.  The film is in development, so stay tuned for details.

Breaking Dawn: Timing TBD.
Much like Kristen Stewart, though her schedule isn’t jam-packed with upcoming films, there is no doubt she is receiving so many scripts she doesn’t have time to go through them all.

Billy Burke

Fresh off his band’s new single, Billy is burning the candle at both ends!  Where does he find the time?

Drive Angry: Starring Nicholas Cage, the film is set to release in 2011.
Highland Park: Starring Danny Glover, this film will release in 2010.

Luster: Playing the lead, this film will debut in 2010.

Ticket Out : Starring Ray Liota, this film is set to release in 2010.

Baby O: Starring Eric Roberts and Billy Burke, this film is also set to release in 2010.

Removal: As the star of the film, this movie should come out in 2010.

Breaking Dawn: Timing TBD.

Ashley Greene

Butter: There’s been a lot of press surrounding this film.  Ashley stars with Hugh Jackman, Alicia Silverstone and Olivia Wilde in this 2012 film.

Breaking Dawn: Timing TBD.

Warrior:  (Co-starring with Kellan Lutz).

The Apparition : This horror film casts Ashley Greene in the lead and is set to release this year.

Radio Free Albemuth : This film has already hit the festival circuit.

Skateland: Though this film has already hit the festival circuit, it doesn’t have mainstream distribution yet.
Jackson Rathbone

Truckstop : Rumored to be in this 2011 film, we won’t know if Jackson’s in it until he signs on the dotted line.

The Last Airbender:  This is M. Night. Shyamalan’s latest effort.  Need I say more?  Go see it!

Girlfriend : In a starring role, Jackson will appear in this 2010 movie which is currently in post-production.

DaZe: Vol. Too (sic) – NonSeNse: I really couldn’t tell you what this film is about.  Try yourself.  Here is the synopsis: “A post modern avant guard dramedy musical non-musical told nonlinearly.”

Breaking Dawn: Timing TBD.
Nikki Reed

Privileged:  This film is completed and should be out in 2010.

Chain Letter:  Though the film had trouble getting off the ground, it will release in August in about 400 theaters nationwide.

Breaking Dawn: Timing TBD.

A note about Xavier:  He is quite popular now and on a lot of people’s radars.  Watch for him to start appearing in more films in 2010 and beyond.

    You suck as a journalist, Tracy. Half of these films have been cancelled or the actor/actress had dropped out. This is the 2010 list. Kristen is not filming K-11 anytime soon if ever. Backwoods or An American Girl are her next projects. Taylor has also not been finalized for all the movies you claim. Unbound Captives will likely never get made because of funding and RPatz will be too old for the character. I wish these crappy sites would give some actual researched news for once, but I guess that’s too much to ask

    Hi David,
    In response to your e-mail, Taylor Lautner has signed contracts for both Abduction and Stretch Armstrong. The other films I mention above he is attached to (not signed). Kristen is attached to American Girl, not signed, so I apologize for leaving out that film. Backwoods is a rumor at this point, and she is attached to K-11, but as I mention, production is TBD.

    Jackson has already been confirmed for Truckstop. DaZe: Vol Too has been in the can for a while but at this point its not likely to ever see the light of day. (He and bandmate Ben Graupner met bandmate Lawrence “Uncle Larry” Abrams on the set of this movie…so in the end who cares about the film ? 😉 )
    Kellan’s Meskada just had a primere and multiple showings at the Tribeca Film Festival. Believe they are just looking for distribution.
    And werent we supposed to see Kellan and Ashley’s Warrior sometime last year?

    Kiowa Gordon has been cast in the upcoming film “The Sacred Oath”. He will be playing the lead role of Dasan (pronounced Da-si-an). Filming begins in 2011
