Hardwicke Passes on "Twilight" Sequel
Variety is reporting that Catherine Hardwicke, who just delivered the highest grossing opening weekend ever for a female director with Twilight, has passed on directing the sequel, New Moon, slated for release late next year or early 2010.
The hurried production schedule doesn't bode well for the film adaptation of the terrible book, but it will be interesting to see what a fresh perspective will do with the franchise.
Alfonso Cuaron, anybody? Hey, it worked for Harry Potter.
