Chris Weitz, who directed The Twilight Saga: New Moon, is popping up in more and more interviews lately. That probably means he’s finally done editing the movie and getting all the effects right — always a good sign.
He recently talked to MTV about the Volturi, especially shooting with Dakota Fanning (Jane) and Michael Sheen (Aro):

For Sheen, it was a chance to play a vampire, versus the werewolf he had played in the “Underworld” series.
“He is one of those extraordinary British actors who is adaptable to any circumstance and who has not a millimeter of ego,” Weitz said. “Michael kind of approached this role — not as a gag but thought, ‘Well, what would a 2,000-year-old vampire be like?’ “
For Fanning, it was the chance to be the bad girl for once.
“She’s never really gotten to play a bad person before, probably because she is a very good person. She is really a lovely young person. But I think she had some fun playing, really, the most evil of all the bad guys,” Weitz said. “[Jane]‘s bad news. Very bad.”
