While some actors have done well out of being in the Twilight franchise (Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Anna Kendrick), for many it hasn’t been quite the leap into the a-list it might have seemed like it was going to be. That’s true of Jackson Rathbone, whose role as Jasper Hale hasn’t really equated to major stardom.

The same is true of Diego Boneta, who may have thought the world would be at his feet after scoring the lead role in Rock Of Ages, but we haven’t heard much from him since. Now Rathbone and Boneta are teaming up for the thriller The Dead Men, according to THR.

The movie is about ‘an American running from his past who is brought into a group of young underground radicals called The Dead Men, only to discover a centuries-old spiritual battle.’

Sounds like it’ll be dealing with the supernatural then, but there’s no info on who Rathbone or Boneta will play. Kirk Sullivan, a longtime assistant to mega-producer Joel Silver, will be making his directorial debut with the film, with Andrew Poston on scripting duties.

Crush Of The Day: The Men Of Twilight

Although Twilight has the incredible ability to split people into camps of those who utterly adore everything about it and those who reserve a special hatred for it that infects every part of their soul, the series has brought us some very pretty guys.

So with the final instalment (well, until they find some way of keeping the cash cow going), The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, hitting cinemas on Friday (November 16th), I thought it was about time to present an appreciation of the men of Twilight. And we’re not just talking Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, as we’ve always got some nice pics of the likes of Peter Facinelli (Carlisle Cullen), Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen), Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale), Lee Pace (Garrett), and the incredibly hunky Wolf Pack.

There is a smorgasbord of hotties in Twilight, as it seems only pretty people can become Vampires or Werewolves. So even if you won’t be queued up this weekend to find out what happens to Edward, Bella, Jacob and co. as they try to protect half-vampire child Renesmee, enjoy the images below.
