I keep getting emails and coming upon articles about the new director of New Moon. Now, NONE OF THIS IS CONFIRMED! These are just some rumors that have been swimming around the internet, and I thought you all might want to know.
It has been rumored that Summit has offered Chris Weitz the director position for New Moon. Chris Weitz has directed such movies as Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist and the Chronicles of Narnia.
Here is my opinion: While a lot of people were very disappointed with the Chronicles of Narnia, I think he will be great for New Moon. Think about it… In Narnia, they had to deal with large animals quite a lot, and they did a pretty great job with them! So, I think the New Moon wolves will be a piece of cake for him.
Yes, he’s had tremendous success working with tweens and teens (About A Boy as director and writer, American Pie as producer and uncredited director). But Chris Weitz also didThe Golden Compass (as writer and director), and my source says Summit Entertainment liked the look of that even if it didn’t heat up the domestic box office (but did better overseas). I don’t have official confirmation yet that this Twilight sequel offer has gone out to Weitz. But my insider says another reason it came down is because Weitz and Summit’s president of production Eric Feig are longtime pals. The source tells me Weitz is “still considering” the offer to helm New Moon and possibly also Eclipse if the sequel and threequel movie adaptations of Stephenie Meyer’s series of vampire books are made back-to-back. This info follows my news that Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke is off the film franchise.
But what do you think? [Source]
