SCI FI Wire is reporting that there may be an anime version of Twilight in our future. According to this report, the dvd extras for Twilight include commentary from stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and director Catherine Hardwicke. During one exchange, Pattinson comments that he looks "Asian" in a particular scene. I think he already looks anime, and apparently he agrees: "...I look like an anime character." To which Hardwicke responds, "Hey, I think there's going to be an anime version of this in Japan. So you will be an anime character."
The rumor mills are circling the Summit Entertainment is set to peg Chris Weitz to be the new director of the Twilight Sequels. From what we hear, it is already a done deal and has been!
Just like the Catherine Hardwhicke news of her not directing the sequels was announced on Sunday, it was actually known for some time that she would not be on board but they were trying to not have the news leak since she and the cast were overseas promoting the movie.
They have known that Chris Weitz was their man all along, and although the rumors say they are courting him, they had him locked up before they let Catherine Hardwhicke go! It makes logical sense for a movie of this magnitude that is going to have more than 2 sequels to have someone in place before letting the current director go. So why haven't they announced him as director yet?
It's Hollywood politics at it's best. Summit does not want to appear all swarmy announcing the replacement of Hardwhicke so quickly. It's also a way to make sure this is not negative publicity in the press and with Twilight's legions of fans. You can also look at it as they are weighing fan reaction to his hiring as well.
I imagine the time would be right sometime around this weekend or later.-Dr.FB
This guy makes the girls swoon eh? Well, on his way out of New York, Robert Pattinson signed autographs and posed for pictures on his way out of the big apple.
The $70.5 million Twilight brought in is the biggest opening by a female director. I am sure Catherine Hardwicke is pleased to hear that. Let's see what the movie does next weekend.-Dr.FB
