Elizabeth Reaser and Charlie Bewley will also participate in the Summit project, despite being unable to attend the San Diego convention.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 will hit Comic-Con this Thursday, and while Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and director Bill Condon are rumored to be on board for the panel, The Hollywood Reporter confirms that four other cast members will be involved in the madness from miles away.
Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone, Elizabeth Reaser and Charlie Bewley won’t be on hand for the actual festivities, but Summit Entertainment tells THR that fans will be given the opportunity to speak with them via telephone.
Attendees are invited to stop by the Summit booth (4029) and submit questions that they would like to ask each of the stars. The ultimate fans with the best questions will be selected to speak with the talent live on the phone.
Rathbone, unable to attend due to his 100 Monkeys tour, spoke with THR last week about his inner fanboy.
When asked about which summer blockbuster he was most looking forward to seeing, the actor immediately answered with Captain America. “I was a huge comic fan geek when I was growing up,” he added. “I loved comic books and graphic novels, so I’m sad that I’m missing Comic-Con.”
Summit will host one of the first panels in Hall H on July 21, where fans can view exclusive footage from the upcoming film and engage in a filmmaker and cast Q&A session.
