    I just want to kow the rest of the cast. I want to know alec and valentine, also lukes second and thirds. i cant belive that this has been in pre production for over a year n a half and its the month they start filming and they still dont have a full cast. slack i say

  4. Sadly, I will not be near the set; in fact, I am halfway around the country from it. I am incredibly excited for the filming to begin because we will by then know the entire cast, and it marks that there is only one year until the movie’s release date. I am so excited that there are no words to express it. (Doesn’t it seem so? (-: ) but I really, truly am. But I don’t at all think they are slaking. Hundreds of actors audition for each role, and it would take a very long time to get a full cast. And they had to re-start casting for a few parts due to scheduling or the like.
