“The Golden Compass” director, Chris Weitz, has signed with Summit Entertainment to direct “New Moon”, the sequel to “Twilight”. This means it is official. He is the next director, replacing Catherine Hardwicke.
I have mixed feelings about this, I don’t like the director choice. I do like the idea of a man directing the next Twilight movie though, I wish Summit would take their time, finding the right director. “The Golden Compass” was a terrible failure and that film didn’t look good at all. Weitz will probably fuck up “New Moon” too. I hope he makes the sequel better than the first but I doubt it.
