domingo, 14 de diciembre de 2008 |

It’s official. Chris Weitz, the director of another book-to-film fantasy adaptation, will take over for Catherine Hardwicke on the set of “Twilight” sequel “New Moon.”

The director of “The Golden Compass” made clear in a press release Saturday that he would treat the next installment in the Stephenie Meyers series with care and reverence, preserving the story’s characters and themes.

“Twilight,” released last month to the delight of fans of the four-book series, has surpassed $150 million in domestic and foreign box-office receipts. “New Moon” will again star Kristen Stewart and is slated for release between late next year and early 2010.
