Casting Bites: Michael Sheen in New Moon, Zac Efron Confirmed for Johnny Quest? + William Hurt Cast in Robin Hood

williamhurt-041309Here are some of the latest casting additions, and rumors, in film.

  • Michael Sheen (who played the vampire Lucian from the three Underworld films) has been cast as the vampire Aro in the Chris Weitz-directed follow-up The Twilight Saga’s New Moon.  Says Weitz: Michael’s role is so important because he’s the head of all vampires. Aro is, on the surface, a very gracious and friendly vampire, but beneath that he is a tremendous threat. [The Daily Mail]
  • Rumored for months, Zac Efron has been confirmed as being signed on to play the lead role in the big screen live-action adaptation of Johnny Quest.  And apparently, Warner Brothers is considering dropping the title from the film in favor of something else. [Hero Complex]
  • Willaim Hurt has joined the cast of Universal and Imagine’s still untitled Robin Hood project being directed by Ridley Scott.  Hurt will be playing William Marshall, the Earl of Pembroke, a historical figure who was one of the most powerful men in Europe. [THR]
