The cast of “Twilight” must be some of the busiest actors in Hollywood. Despite a relentlessly busy schedule filming the franchise’s installments nearly back-to-back, almost all of our favorite supernatural sensations are moonlighting gigs in other projects. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have already upped their respective cred in dramas like “Water for Elephants” and “The Runaways,” and Taylor Lautner is slated to go all leading man on us in “Abduction,” out later this year. But now it’s Ashley Greene’s turn to ditch her Cullen persona in favor of some indie fare.
In “Skateland” (opening May 13), Ashley stars opposite Shiloh Fernandez in a fun, coming-of-age story about how a group of friends deal with growing up and the demise of their local skating rink (the film is set in the early 1980s so the skating rink as the local hangout thing makes more sense…). And guess what!?! We nabbed an EXCLUSIVE scene from the film.
In one of the movie’s more contemplative scenes, Ashley’s go-getter character Michelle discusses the future with longtime friend/potential love interest Ritchie, played by Shiloh. (It’s a moment much less precognitive than we’re used to in “Twilight,” to be sure.)
