Weitz Helms New Moon

So this whole TWILIGHT thing cannot be further off my radar, but apparently for some, the following is kind of a big deal. Chris Weitz, the director of THE GOLDEN COMPASS, has signed on to direct to the sequel to TWILIGHT called NEW MOON.

Eventhough TWILIGHT has grossed over 140 million worldwide, Catherine Hardwicke--the film's director--clashed with the studio throughout the film's shooting and therefor was not brought back. Apprently Weitz is a lot easier to work with. Weitz also directed AMERICAN PIE with his brother Paul and wrote and directed ABOUT A BOY. Clearly he knows a thing or two about working within the Hollywood system, so here's to happy times ahead for the Twilight franchise. On a personal note, I want to shout out to my girlfriend for not giving a f*ck about these movies. Love you!
Extra Tidbit: Chris Weitz starred in the indie film CHUCK & BUCK...a narrative film as far away from mainstream Hollywood as it gets.

OK, good for Chris Weitz-the movie's a guaranteed money maker. And he'll never have a problem picking up tween girls again (do I see a Dateline special?).

But I'd like to take a moment to point out how f#ck!ng gigantic that actor's head is. Holy crap! He's not a vampire, he's a mutant!

I'm embarassed to admit that I took my lady to see this and it wasn't too bad, but 140Mil? Come on, that's gotta be a misprint. maybe 14Mil. And for the record, I'm dumping my girl because she liked this movie. Ladies call me. Out!

Well at least the sequel has a good director aboard. He can handle drama and fantasy well, and not to mention comedy.

If Weitz is directing I hope this sequel makes even more than the first one. Why is that? So that Chris & Paul can get their Elric movie going. They were planning to start a potential franchise based on the Michael Moorcock character after The Golden Compass, but since that film disappointed at the Box Office it made the studio balk at letting them do another fantasy film.

They do seem to like their fantasy flicks though, Golden Compass, Elric, Cirque du Freak and now this.
