'New Moon' vampires (and screenwriter) descend on Rome Film Festival

October 22, 2009 |  1:15 pm

Rome became the center of the "New Moon" universe Thursday when the film's screenwriter, Melissa Rosenberg, and the three young actors who play members of the Volturi vampire coven -- Charlie Bewley (Demetri), Cameron Bright (Alec) and Jamie Campbell Bower (Caius) -- appeared on the appropriately red carpet to present a 20-minute preview of the sequel to "Twilight" at the 4th International Rome Film Festival. Tickets for the event were sold out in just a few hours, and fans braved a torrential downpour to catch a glimpse of the talent.

"New Moon" will enjoy its U.S. premiere Nov. 20.
