LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Twihards, take note: The vampire coven known as the Denali clan has been cast for Summit's "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn," which is being adapted into two movies to be directed by Bill Condon.

MyAnna Buring -- the star of "The Descent" who had her own coven in "Lesbian Vampire Killers" -- Mia Maestro ("Alias") and Casey LaBow are the female members of the undead family. Christian Camargo (the Ice Truck Killer in "Dexter") is the patriarch.

Buring and LaBow will join the recently cast Maggie Grace as a trio of Russian vampire sisters of the Denali coven. Buring is playing Tanya, a rival to Kristen Stewart's Bella for the attention of Edward (Rob Pattinson), while LaBow will play Kate, who has the ability to produce an electric current that can shock opponents. (Grace is playing villainous Irina.)

Maestro portrays Carmen and Camargo is Eleazar, the two Spanish heads of the coven, which in the "Twilight" universe is the only other non-human-feeding vampire clan besides the Cullen clan.

A November start is being prepped. The first of the "Breaking Dawn" movies is slated to be released in theaters November 18, 2011, with the second one coming November 16, 2012.
