Michael Copon & Ben Barnes Starring In ‘Twilight’ Sequel?

One major casting change taking place in New Moon, the Twilight follow-up will be the replacement of young actor Taylor Lautner in the pivotal role of Jacob Black.

And according to the Facebook page of Scorpion King 2 actor Michael Copon, he’s going to be the new Jacob. It’s also been confirmed that 27-year-old actor Ben Barnes who recently starred in Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is being considered for the role of the vampire Aro.

All of this is circumspect, of course, except for the news that Chris Weitz will be directing the picture. But they better hurry up because filming starts in about 2.8 seconds.
