Movie News: Twilight’s sequel ‘New Moon’ moving quickly

RaV | December 3, 2008 | 8:00 am

Here are several news articles about the fast moving Twilight sequel, New Moon.  But then again, when your opening weekend is $70.5 Million the studio heads will push as fast as their feet can peddle.


Director Catherine Hardwicke explained that “Although the novel greatly reduces Edward’s presence, Robert Pattinson insists that “New Moon” is the installment he loves best. “I’m looking forward to doing the re-emergence … at the end of the second book, when he’s killing himself,” the star said when we spoke with him last week. “I think that’d be kind of spectacular seeing that. And the second book is my favorite book, so I’m quite looking forward to doing it.”

The good news for fans is that studio Summit Entertainment recently took the official step of acquiring all of Meyer’s “Twilight” books and has rehired screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg. Pattinson even told the Seattle Times that Rosenberg’s “New Moon” script is already done.

Actor Lautner relates that “The quote I love the most is Jacob’s quote, ‘Does my half being naked bother you?’ That quote just cracks me up,” he laughed when we met him for the first time, on the “Twilight” set. “Because, you know, that’s when he’s shirtless, not wearing a top – we’ll have to wait to see what he looks like.”

Lautner plans to begin bulking up now that “New Moon” has received the official green light, and is also hoping to work some of his real-life martial-arts background into Jacob’s upcoming battles. “They found a YouTube video of me on ESPN when I was 11, and they were just freaking out and were watching it over and over again. … I said that it’d be cool if Jacob did some of that in the fight scenes,” he told us in August. “[Hardwicke] said, ‘Yeah, that would be cool.’ ”


And surprise, surprise — Kristen Stewart talked to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show about New Moon, which, according to the starlet, will head into production in March.

Stewart also spoke about the filming locations for the new film: “A lot of the book takes place in Italy, and I think we’re going to get to go to Italy, which is so cool. For a while there, they were like, ‘Oh, we don’t know if we have the money’, but now I think we may have the money!” Well, I guess that New Moon is a little closer on the horizon than expected.
