New Moon: What Naked Volturi Scene? Not Happening, Chris Weitz Says
New Moon: What Naked Volturi Scene? Not Happening, Chris Weitz Says
If Chris Weitz is to be believed, it seems Jamie Campbell Bower's so witty that he thought up of the craziest thing.  I mean, a nude scene for the Volturi on second Twilight film New Moon?

Surely you've heard it, but here's to get you up to speed anyway: in an interview with MTV News, the guy who plays Caius say there'll be a scene where the male Volturi members will be naked, pretty much.  "It's me, Michael Sheen and Christopher [Heyerdahl]," he said.  "We just sit there, naked."

Sure, the film's got a PG-13 rating, but if it's because someone's taking off their clothes then it shouldn't go that far, right?  I don't think that's the idea.  Well, sure, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner will go topless in a couple of scenes.

I guess what Jamie said got director Chris Weitz in some position, and now he's cleared things up.  Nah, there won't be a nude scene with the Volturi.

"I would like to put everyone's mind at rest and let them know that the Volturi are not naked!" he wrote in a note released through the folks at Summit.  "Jamie has what you might call a dry sense of humor, and almost managed to convince me--which is why he's such a good actor.  Anyway, be assured that, even though we do want the look of the Volturi to be a bit of a surprise, they are as always--as in the book!--fully clothed."

Must be a British thing, that dry humor.  But admittedly, the thought of a naked Volturi scene made me chuckle, and because it sounds a bit improbable.  Right?
