TWILIGHT – Director Catherine Hardwicke spoke about the sequel to the teen vampire hit film (see pictures above and below right), which was adapted from Stephenie Meyer’s novel of the same name. The novel’s story was continued in the books New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn so the studio has now turned its attention to adapting the second book.
Speaking about confirmed sequel New Moon, which begins filming in March, Hardwicke told ShockTillYouDrop: “In the other books, Stephenie [Meyer] went in completely different directions. She created whole new back stories with the werewolves and everything. So in a way they’re just automatically different, each book. She took it to a new place. She didn’t rest on what was successful in the first book. So that’s what I think the film would have to do, just take you on that journey.
“New Moon’s really taking a whole other leap with this new story and there’s really a lot of new characters in it. There’s the werewolves which is pretty crazy. All the wolves. Then there’s also going to Italy in the second book and there’s motorcycle riding and cliff-jumping and diving.
“What Summit wants to do is make the next one right away – we don’t want the kids to get any older because they’re not supposed to age. They’re vampires, they’ve got to stay young!”
