No, this is not a Real World Vancouver staring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and the cast of Twilight. But the newest reality show to hit the air might be based on Forks, Washington — the town where Bella Swan, Jacob Black, The Cullens, and the rest of the fictional Twilight characters live.
But as Zig Gauthier found out, it’s a real place, where about 3,200 real people live. And he’s been hanging around the small town, trying to “cast for an unscripted project” that geared towards Twi-Hards, according to The Wrap. “But don’t expect to see Forks townies pretending to be vampires and werewolves,” he said. (Or any appearances from the heart-throb cast-members.)
“We’re not going up there looking to cast people who have claims to the supernatural,” Gauthier says. “We want people who have a true connection to the community. We want to avoid people with outlandish claims.”
So just what will the show be like? The Wrap reports, “Possibilities for the structure of the show include focusing on a group of high-school students, following one or more families who live in the town, or a Real Housewives model, in which cameras tag along with several interesting personalities in the town.”
The only downside is that by the time this show gets off the ground, the third Twilight film, Eclipse, will probably have left theaters already … and nobody will care about Forks anymore!
