Casting is underway in British Columbia for speaking roles in the sequel to the Portland-shot vampire feature "Twilight", titled "Twilight: New Moon", scheduled to shoot in Vancouver mid-March to May.
The open casting call is looking for Canadian First Nations/aboriginal actors interested in a speaking part in the film, playing 'werewolves'.
"New Moon" will contain parts for both male/female aboriginal actors.

At the auditions, potential candidates will receive script-sides and be asked to return the same day to read.
