High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens may be appearing in a role in the Twilight sequel, New Moon. Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in Twilight, told MTV.com that Hudgens was being considered for a role as Leah Clearwater, a feisty native girl who becomes part of Jacob Black’s werewolf clan. “I think she’d be great,” Greene told reporters. She also added that the script for New Moon is currently being rewritten. It wasn’t mentioned whether Hudgens’ longtime boyfriend, Zac Efron, was also being considered for a role. New Moon is scheduled to begin shooting in Vancouver in March, for release in theaters on November 20, 2009.
Update: Hudgen’s rep won’t confirm that she’s being considered for a role in New Moon, saying: “I don’t know anything about the audition. As far as I know, it’s just a rumor.”
