It didn’t fit Catherine’s ideas for the film and she wanted more time to prepare. It has been confirmed that Chris Weitz (Director of About a Boy, American Pie and The Golden Compass) has agreed to direct New Moon. Chris Weitz won’t be directing Eclipse. Because New Moon, which Weitz is helming, and Eclipse are due to be released so close together, Weitz will be in post-production on New Moon at the same time that Eclipse will be shooting. That said, the source confirms a report that the movies will not be shot simultaneously or back-to-back; there will be a brief gap between the production of both films.
