London (ANI): Filming of American author Stephenie Meyer"s Twilight sequel New Moon will be going on as scheduled despite the lawsuit that has been filed against her.
Meyer, 35, is facing legal action from her former college room-mate, who alleges that the writer based the novels on a short story she wrote as a student. As per reports, the lawsuit is said to have interfered with the filming of the second film, and Internet gossips also speculated that its shooting in Canada has been halted.
But now a spokesperson from Summit Entertainment, the company behind the movie, has insisted that New Moon will be released on November 20 as scheduled.
“Production is underway, in Vancouver, totally as planned. There is no delay. Whatever you're hearing about a lawsuit interfering with the film (and) its release, all I can say is it's totally false," the Daily Star quoted the rep as telling MSNBC.com.
