Stephenie isn't qualified to direct. It's sort of like saying "I like my mom - she should be president!" - there's a lot more involved than just saying "Action!"

What we should hope for is a director who will freely go to Stephenie with questions as they arise, a screenwriter who will glue themselves to the book, heart and soul, and passion for the real New Moon over rushed product or personal creative rights.

Tricky thing to find, to say the least.

I just really hope that the new director does us good. It would be heartbreaking to have seen Twilight do so well, and then have New Moon be...bad. I am just hoping for the best!

I am so dissapointed with Summit. The way i hear it they will not give any more $$$ for the special effect. That was a huge hangup for Catherine Hardwicke. From what I have heard (not what was released) CH wouldn't sign on without a larger budget to do better effects and ultimately make a better movie.
Summit felt that they made all this money on a movie with a low budget why through more money at it.
"Her existence alone was excuse enough to justify the creation of the entire world."

And, by the way, I adore you... in frightening, dangerous ways.

well I would actually have to say the exact opposite of you. I think Twilight was terrible (it only did well b/c of the large fan base), so even if New Moon is bad, it won't be a surprise.

I think Summit made a good decision letting Catherine Hardwicke go. But I do agree that they did it for the wrong reasons. So I really hope they make a good decision in choosing a new director.

Since Summit had other motivations besides "making a better accurate sequel" for passing on CH, I would have much rather she stayed because I don't think they'll be choosing the next director in the right state in mind...

We'll see what happens.

Yeah, well, to each her own, right? I though it was a really good movie, entertaining in the least! I wouldn't have seen it three times, if I didn't like it. :)

I vote Peter Jackson.He always sticks well to the books but changes bits to make the film better.

That would be awesome, but to get that coup, Summit would have to come up with a fee equal to GNP of some third world country to get him.

PJ would know exactly what to do and then some. :D
