“Oh this is very amped up, yeah,” Sheen revealed. “This is, I think we spent something like four or five weeks shooting that scene and it takes up a big chunk of the movie,” he added. “And it’s got extraordinary things going on in it, so it certainly won’t be anticlimactic.”
Sheen’s comments will hopefully be music to the ears of “Twilight” fans hoping for some actual action in those big final sequences, and they fall in line with the bits and pieces of information we’ve derived from other castmembers.
“I don’t want to give away too much, but if you’ve read the books, it’s the standoff with lots of vampires in play,” he said. “There’s like 70 people going through the works at once. It’s a little maddening, but fun.”
Breaking Dawn Movie cast announcements have been released left right and center, but we haven’t heard much about who will be returning from the Volturi cast members, or the humans. However, we do know, thanks to Variety, that Michael Sheen (aka Aro) is returning to reprise his role. They write:
“Michael Sheen is returning as a vampire leader in Summit’s “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.”
The British thesp closed his deal with the studio to reprise his turn as Aro, the leader of the vampire royalty Volturi.
Bill Condon is directing “Breaking Dawn,” based on the final tome in the series, in two parts. Book centers on the mortal Bella (Kristen Stewart) marrying the vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella giving birth to a half-vampire, half-human daughter.”
Michael Sheen, who played Aro in New Moon, recently chatted with MovieLine about Breaking Dawn. He explained that he still isn’t sure he’ll return for the Breaking Dawn movie, but hopes he will!
And now I’ll showcase my own lack of imagination by asking about Twilight. We’ve asked some of the principals here and there how they’re feeling about it coming to a close, and with Breaking Dawn on the way, I was wondering about your take. I think it’s a very different experience for me than it’s been for a lot of people. I’ve had very little to do with it, to be honest. I’ve done one film!
You’re part of the culture, though, and— I’m part of the culture, but in terms of what will it mean to me when it’s over? Very little.
Are you not involved with the last two? Yeah. I mean, hopefully that’s going to happen. And it might be different then. But it’s totally different for Rob and Taylor and Kristen and Ashley and everyone. They’ve gone through the whole thing. It’s changed their lives completely. Ultimately I did two weeks on the set and one press junket and the premiere. And it was fantastic. I loved being a part of it. It’s such a delight that my daughter is into it. I’ve loved being a part of it so far. It hasn’t had the same impact for me; maybe by the time Breaking Dawn comes around, it will have.
I only ask because you’ve been reported to be attached. Well, my character is in it. It’s not done and dusted yet or whatever. But I’m hoping.
FEARnet.com recently had the pleasure of chatting with Michael Sheen, who many of you know plays Aro of the Volturi. During the interview he talked a little about the Breaking Dawn movie! Upon being asked about his involvement in Breaking Dawn, here’s what Michael had to say:
As for the fate of his Twilight character in Breaking Dawn, Sheen remarked, “Well, there’s no secret, because there’s a book out, so you just have to read the book to find out what happens. But it’s still early days really. There’s no script and nothing’s been set up definitely yet. I’m hoping it’ll all work out.”
