It seems like only last week that filming wrapped on New Moon, but already the Twilight gang are starting to descend on Vancover, Canada, to begin work on part three of the vampire saga.

Three members of the Cullen clan – Nikki Reed, Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz – touched down in the city on Monday, ahead of the early August shoot date.

Charlie Bewley – who we will first see as Dimitri in the upcoming New Moon – was snapped grabbing a bite to eat downtown Vancouver.

There were also some new additions to the franchise in town.

Looking rather RPattz-esque in a leather jacket and shades - was Aussie actor Xavier Samuel, who makes his Twilight saga debut in Eclipse as Riley, the vampire corrupted by vamp villainess Victoria.
