This is so unbelievable. I didn't even hear the rumour going around.
Anyway, it has been officially reported in an article by Deadline Hollywood Daily that twilight director Catherine Hardwicke will NOT be returning to direct the sequel, new moon!!
According to the article, Summit Entertainment said, "Catherine and Summit have agreed to part ways on the sequel because our visions are different." Wow.
Too bad. I think she did a great job with twilight. The movie was good enough to rake in USD70 million, for crying out loud!
DHD also reported that Summit may shoot new moon and eclipse back-to-back, but eclipse has yet to be confirmed... We'll see how it turns out..
Hopefully, the new director will do a job as great as if not better than Catherine Hardwicke...
