  • The Tulip in the New Moon Covernew moon

    Stephenie stated in her website that there is not meaning of the (ruffled) tulip also known as Estella Rijnveld (not a bloody tulip). Thanks to the internet, doing research is not hard. The meaning of the tulip is, “According to Persian legend, the first tulips sprang up from the drops of blood shed by a lover and for a long time the tulip was the symbol of avowed love.”

  • Cast

-) Taylor Lataylor lautnerutner will be reprising his role as Jacob Black. “I have been working  out. I’ve been working out since the day we finished filming Twilight. I just weighed myself today; I’ve put on 19 pounds,” the noticeably larger Lautner told MTV news, promising that he’ll be big enough to fit Stephenie Meyer’s physical description of Jacob Black in New Moon when cameras begin rolling in 12 weeks. “I’m guaranteeing Weitz 10 more [pounds] by filming. I get to meet Chris on Friday, in two days, so I’m excited. I’m going to have lunch with him.”

-) 90210 actress AnnaLynn McCord did audition for the role of Heidi (the vampire of the Volturi clan,  that rallies the humans for food), and at this point Summit hasn’t released a statement whether she is cast or not. They are in negotiations at this moment.

Summit, Chris Wietz or Melissa have yet to confirm this.

-) Solomon Trimble will not be reprising his role as Sam Uley, he released this statement on his official MySpace. My agent heard from Summit Entertainment today that I will not be reprisidakota fanningng the role of Sam in New Moon.

-)  Summit Entertainment announced through their Email mailing list that Dakota Fanning has offically signed on to play the role of Jane.

  • Director

    Catherine Hardwicke won’t be directing New Moon, due to the time frame in which the production company wants the film to be released. 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. David Slade will be directing Eclipse.

  • New Moon

    Filming is schedule to start in March at the following location Vancouver, British Columbia Canada, and Italy. According to Oregon Business they aren’t fimling in Portland due to the budget. Filming in Canada is cheaper.

  • Eclipse

    According to Summit Entertainment the crew will be taking a 10 week break after the filming of “New Moon” and then get back to filming. Eclipse is schedule to be released on June 30, 2010

  • continuation after “Breaking Dawn”

    At this point no. Stephenie Meyer said that she will take a break from writing, due to the leak of Midnight Sun Edward’s version of Twilight. She also said I do not know yet. There are so many ways to explore, the characters can still evolve. I think Bella has a bright future But I am not working on it at the moment. I need to leave my vampires alone, before starting over. I wrote other stories, I have other ideas. And if I want to see Edward and Bella again , I will go and bother them! She also stated that she would love to go back into the Twilight world, and tell another story in Leah Clearwater’s point of view.

Jonas Brothers + ‘New Moon’ soundtrack = destruction/perfection?

“In the annals of teen girl fandom, could there be any more of a perfect storm than “Twilight” and the Jonas Brothers coming together? I think not, which is why we’re happy to report that the JoBros would totally be down with contributing on the soundtrack for “New Moon,” provided they’re asked.” Brian Jacks

‘Twilight’ Invades the 2009 New-York Comic Con

Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, and…Edward Cullen? That’s right, amongst the mutants and supervillains is none other than “Twilight.” The vamp franchise finds itself represented at Comic-Con in no less than two different areas on the show floor.

The publishers of Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” books is Little, Brown and Company, and the outfit has set up shop here at the convention, showcasing the work of their star author. “Twilight” fever also hit the Tonner booth, where their Edward Cullen and Bella Swan figures were on display.

Lucy Hale Auditioned For Same ‘New Moon’ Role As Dakota Fanning

Believe it or not, there is another actress – in addition to Dakota Fanning – up for the part of Jane in Twilight sequel New Moon. That great distinction belongs to Lucy Hale, star of the CW’s Privileged. She spoke about her auditions and her belief that, at this point, Fanning is a shoo-in for the role.
“Well, I did read [for the role of Jane]. We had some talks about it. But I think they just offered it to Dakota Fanning, the role I was interested in,” the teen told Twist magazine. “Which is great – I’m a huge fan of her! So I think she’ll probably take that. And I mean, as of right now, I’m not sure if it’s going to work out. But I’m definitely still going to see it!”
The casting notice that had been floating around the Internet called for Jane to be a “petite blonde with a … Botticelli angel-like face … [and] crimson irises,” a description that dark-haired Hale doesn’t really fit. But there is one character she thinks she might have the look for, and that’s the raven-haired Leah Clearwater.
“I’d take any role!” Hale told the magazine. “Leah Clearwater, but I think there’s already talks with somebody else. I think they’ve already offered it to someone. I mean, we’ll see. If not, it’s all good.”
When she was reminded that High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens was already up for the part, Hale said, “Right, right, right! Yeah, I wasn’t sure if that was true or not, but she’d be great for it!”

Stephenie Meyer’s New Moon News

http://www.stepheniemeyer.com/newmoon_movie.html

Good news about New Moon from director Chris Weitz:

I’m very happy to announce that Taylor Lautner will be playing Jacob Black in New Moon and that he’s doing so with the enthusiastic support of Summit Entertainment, the producers, and Stephenie Meyer.

The characters in Stephenie’s books go through extraordinary changes of circumstance and also appearance; so it is not surprising that there has been speculation about whether the same actor would portray a character who changes in so many surprising ways throughout the series. But it was my first instinct that Taylor was, is, and should be Jacob, and that the books would be best served by the actor who is emotionally right for the part. I think that fans of Twilight the book and the movie will be surprised by the Jacob Black that Taylor will bring to the screen in New Moon; and I’m looking forward to working with him and the rest of the cast in realizing the film.

very best

Chris Weitz

I’d just like to add that I was very much a part of this decision. My first priority was always what was best for New Moon—what was going to give us the best possible movie. I’m truly thrilled that Taylor was the one who proved to the director, to Summit, and to me that he is the best possible Jacob we could have. And I’m very much looking forward to seeing what he’s going to bring to Jacob’s character this year.

‘Twilight’ sequel: New details on ‘New Moon’

http://hollywoodinsider.ew.com/2008/12/twilight-sequel.html?iid=top25-Twilight%27+sequel%3A+New+details+on+%27New+Moon, Nicole Sperling

Summit Entertainment has tentatively slated Nov. 20, 2009, as the release date for New Moon, the Twilight sequel, which means any director who signs on to replace Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke has to be in Vancouver by Dec. 15 to begin 12 weeks of preproduction before a mid-March start date. Reports have speculated that Hardwicke was fired for being difficult on set, but sources close to her suggest Summit’s aggressive production schedule turned her off. “She’d love to do the sequel if she could do it better than Twilight,” says one. “It ­became clear that Summit didn’t have those same priorities.”

Indeed, at press time the second movie appeared to have ­little more than a rough first-draft working script. As Summit’s production president Erik Feig told EW during Twilight’s ­record-busting first weekend, “There is that first…script. All the finesse that turns a screenplay into a movie hasn’t ­happened yet.” Two weeks later, Summit is saying it’s happy with screenwriter ­Melissa Rosenberg’s progress.

Another of Hardwicke’s primary concerns was that hunky vampire Edward remains MIA throughout New Moon’s middle portion. In her own opening-weekend interview, she told EW, “You have to get the chemistry as strong ­between Jacob and Bella as it was between Bella and Edward. You also have to do ­some­thing with that arc: She’s in love with somebody, he disappears, she falls in love with someone else, and the first guy comes back. Movies like Pearl Harbor have tried it. It absolutely didn’t work.”

With or without Hardwicke, Summit ­faces other snags. Two sources tell EW the studio doesn’t want to rehire baby-faced Taylor Lautner (pictured) as Jacob, though Lautner’s agent has apparently reached out to the ­imaging company behind The Curious Case of Benjamin Button in an attempt to demonstrate to Summit how a digitally bulked-up Lautner could work. (Summit says it won’t make a decision until a new filmmaker is on board.) There’s also the matter of finding a cast of Native American actors to play Jacob’s werewolf clan — a difficult challenge Hardwicke was also faced with before ­settling on Lautner, who isn’t completely ­Native American. And with a slightly increased budget of $50 million — much of which is ­assumed will go to leads asking for heftier paydays, location shoots in Italy, and ramped-up F/X — Summit will have to scrimp somewhere.

So what director would want to take on such a big headache? Well, at press time, an offer was out to Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass), who put Summit on the map years ago when its foreign sales operation made tons of cash off of his first film, American Pie. (One source says Weitz has already had conversations with below-the-line crew for New Moon.) “We are in a recession,” ­reminds one Hollywood insider. “It’s a hit franchise. Whoever steps into it is guaranteed a $100 million gross. Everyone wants this movie.” Adds an exec at another studio, “You’d have to have a very high standard for art, hate the movie business, and hate ­money to walk off this sequel.”

‘Twilight’ Sequels Optioned; Studio Acquires ‘New Moon,’ ‘Eclipse’ & ‘Breaking Dawn’

Twilight” hasn’t hit theaters yet, but that doesn’t mean Summit Entertainment isn’t thinking well beyond the big-screen debut of Stephenie Meyer’s beloved vampire-romance novels. The Hollywood Reporter announced today that Summit has acquired the rights to the next three books in Meyer’s series, “New Moon,” “Eclipse” and “Breaking Dawn.” Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, who adapted “Twilight,” will pen the scripts for “New Moon” and “Eclipse,” while a writer has yet to be named for “Breaking Dawn.”

This means that Rosenberg will have to do a lot of reading in the near future, as THR reports that the screenwriter refused to read ahead in the series when she was adapting “Twilight.” With that in mind, one has to wonder what Rosenberg would say about tonight’s premiere of the new MTV movies show “Spoilers” (airing tonight at 7:30 PM EST on MTV) which promises to include some never-before-seen looks at the “Twilight” movie, among other high-profile previews.

According to THR, Summit is looking to build itself a film franchise with Meyer’s series — which, in what is certainly not news to many readers here, has a fan following to rival any property out there these days. (Heck, even President-Elect Obama is a “Twilight” fan.)
