Twilight sequel in the works

Summit Entertainment has announced that the studio is officially moving forward with the production of New Moon, the second installment of its filmed franchise Twilight, which raked in over $70 million at the weekend box office. The sequel movie will be based on the second novel in author Stephenie Meyer‘s Twilight series. Meyer stated, “I don’t think any other author has had a more positive experience with the makers of her movie adaptation than I have had with Summit Entertainment. I’m thrilled to have the chance to work with them again on New Moon.”

    I am so excited that they have decided to move forward with “New Moon”. Twilight was an excellent movie, you captured the exact moments in the book that I had hoped. Excellent job. I cannot wait until New Moon. If it’s anything like Twilight count me in openning night.

    I’m excited about news of the sequal. I was never a fan of the books and didn’t even know about them until the hype of the movie became too big to ignore. My best friend is absolutely consumed with the books and Edward Cullen/Robert Pattinson. I was looking forward to the movie as I was extremely interested in this new modern telling of a vampire story. And I was so impressed with the movie that I went out and bought the entire book series later that day. Twilight was an exceptional movie. The story of Edward and Bella is one that I haven’t encountered before and one that was so beautifully told. I’m so excited to see how they interpret New Moon into a feature film.

    pft I tottally agree. I am a huge fan of the books, I think that they are excellently written. but the movie was horrible. the acting was bad, the script was bad, even the camra work was bad. I was completly dissappointed. They really shouldn’t make the sequel.

    Of course the movie is not as good as the book, it would be unrealistic to expect that. I can’t understand any of the complaints about the movie, it was fantastic!

    I’m just reading the book now, but took my daughter & 2 of her friends to the movie Friday night. I thought it was great, the best movie I’ve seen in a long time! Just like when Harry Potter came out, it is just a totally different story line than I’ve seen before, and very interesting.

    I am fully aware that the movie would not be like the book. that would be impossible to do considering the book is basically internal dialoge. However I felt that they could have done a better job, and the fact the my friend who saw it with me, and had not read the book had no idea what was going on. I had to explain the movie to her after watching it. this is what made it a bad movie.

    Well, I hadn’t read it yet, but I understood what was going on.

    No movie ever lives up to its written countre parts. No one single plot has or will ever. I thought twilight the movie was outstanding. Im glued to the story and cannot wait for the New Moon.

    I don’t know how a person has trouble grasping the story by watching the movie. It’s quite straight forward.

    It would’ve worked better if they hadn’t cast a lesbian in the lead female role. Kristen Stewart isn’t able to act as if she has feelings for men. That’s probably why she appears so stilted.
