"Twilight's" Sequel, "New Moon" Gets Opening Date 


As we reported earlier, Chris Weitz is getting ready to take the helm from director Catherine Hardwicke for the "Twilight" sequel called "New Moon."

The second installment of the popular book franchise from author Stephenie Meyer will be released on...

NOVEMBER 20, 2009

Huh? That soon?

I remember Hardwicke complaining that she didn't want to rush into production, hence, she's no longer associated with the project.

Meanwhile, Weitz, more power to him! I hope they have a working script ready that captures the spirit of Meyer's vision.

Why the rush?

According to Variety, Summit Entertainment feels lucky about the date, and wants to duplicate the success of "Twilight" without too long of a wait:

Summit caught a lucky break when Warners decided to push back the release of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" from Thanksgiving 2008 to summer 2009.


More power to y'all! Good luck, but please, don't rush the emotion and the character development of the film, let 'em breathe just like Meyer's prose.
