Summit Entertainment’s not wasting any time in keeping the vampire ball rolling.

Filming for the Twilight sequel New Moon just wrapped up last week, and already casting has begun for the third film in the series, Eclipse, E! Online reports.

Summit has released a casting notice for the next flick, which is due to begin filming  in August and will be lensed by David Slade (30 Days of Night). Among the characters who will be joining Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and the gang on screen:

  • Riley, a “handsome, blond, clean-cut college boy who falls victim to Victoria.” The character is in his mid to late 20s and “plays an integral role in Victoria’s attempt to murder Bella Swan.”
  • Seth Clearwater, a “tall, gangly-limbed boy with a huge, happy grin. Seth idolizes [werewolf] Jacob [Black].”
  • Seth’s older sister, Leah Clearwater, is described as 19 years old and the only female member of the La Push wolf pack. Summit is looking for someone who can pull off the following description: “Tall and slender with beautiful skin and short cropped black hair. She would be considered gorgeous if not for the perpetual scowl she carries due to a broken heart and her anger issues.”

For the last two roles, Summit is seeking Native American or First Nation actors.
