Ashley Greene, who picked up a Teen Choice award last night for her role as Alice Cullen in Twilight, is hitting back over nude photos of her posted on the internet. “The photos in question, which appear to be of our client, are illegal and are being unlawfully displayed,” Greene’s lawyer told People magazine in a statement. “Our client intends to take legal action.” Greene won the Choice Fresh Face Female award for playing the pixie-esque Cullen sister in the enormously successful Twilight franchise.

Actress Jodelle Ferland has been cast in the third Twilight flick, Eclipse, as a “vampire who has just been turned,” according to Variety. Ferland was recently seen in the CBS TV movie Pictures of Hollis Woods and will star alongside Renee Zellweger in the feature thriller Case 39. Although relatively unknown, the Canadian-born 14-year old has appeared in a variety of projects, including Terry Gilliam’s Tideland, the movie Silent Hill, and the TV series Supernatural.
Author Stephenie Meyer has been accused of plagiarizing small portions of Breaking Dawn, the fourth book in her Twilight series, from a novel called The Nocturne by Jordan Scott. After receiving a cease-and-desist letter with the claim, Meyer’s publisher, Hachette Book Group, issued the following statement: “The claim that Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer somehow infringes on an alleged book by someone named Jordan Scott is completely without merit. Neither Stephenie Meyer nor her representatives had any knowledge of this writer or her supposed book prior to this claim. Ms. Scott’s attorney has yet to furnish us with a copy of the book to support this claim as requested. The world of The Twilight Saga and the stories within it are entirely the creation of Ms. Meyer. Her books have been a phenomenal sensation, and perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising to hear that other people may seek to ride the coattails of such success. This claim is frivolous and any lawsuit will be defended vigorously.”
Scott’s attorney, J. Craig Williams, told EW he intends to file a motion for a preliminary injunction stopping the distribution of Breaking Dawn. In a statement, he added, “Jordan Scott began creating The Nocturne in 2003. As she developed the book, originally published in 2006, she regularly posted passages and chapters on her web site, http://www.jordanscott.com. In reviewing Stephenie Meyer’s Breaking Dawn, released in 2008, we found a number of instances where the text, characters and story line contain substantial similarities to Jordan Scott’s original work. We seek an admission from Ms. Meyer that our client’s copyright was infringed and that Breaking Dawn and all derivative works be discontinued.”
Twilight author Stephenie Meyer’s success story will be told in an upcoming issue of the biographical comic Female Force, the Bluewater Productions title which celebrates influential women in society and pop culture. Two versions will be released before The Twilight Saga’s New Moon hits theaters in November — a standard 22-page edition and a 40-page collector’s edition that includes bonus material such as the history of Forks. Writer Ryan Burton (Flying Saucers vs. The Earth) says an iconic vampire serves as the narrator. He did not name which one.
“We get to turn the tables on Meyer and she becomes the featured protagonist,” Bluewater’s president Darren G. Davis said in a release. “And we are going to tell her story in a very fun, respectful and unique way.” Other issues of Female Force have honored Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Palin, and Princess Diana.
