Twilight's Werewolf Booted from Wolf-Centric Sequel? [New Moon]
Dec 15, 2008 15:16
The blood-sucking beast Twilight is pushing forward with a release date for sequel New Moon faster than the Cullen family can scarf down a deer. Missing in action is one long-haired wolf boy.
According to Entertainment Weekly the next angsty vampire script is ready to go full speed into production as soon as December 15. The next movie adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's second book in the Twilight series, New Moon, is done and Summit Entertainment is pressed to start filming while the iron is hot with a tentative release date of November 20th, 2009 with the third book movie (Eclipse) out soon after.
Poor Jacob the werewolf, played by Taylor Lautner, is getting pushed out the door as sources say people don't think he can carry the next movie on his shoulders (as New Moon focuses on Bella's new wolfie love interest). According to their sources Lautner's agent even reached out to the Benjamin Button FX crew to see if there was any way they could buff him up digitally, and who wouldn't this movie is a cash cow.
But as for Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke, all signs are pointing towards the door. She balked at the grueling production schedule and wanted to make the dreamy vampire Edward Cullen a small part of the second movie (which aligns with the book but who will buy all the Edward Cullen dolls then?). And who's the rumored director none other than American Pie's Chris Weitz who produced all three Pie movies, so maybe this Twilight will be a little spicier than the previous film, or full of penis jokes.
Lautner is safe until a new filmmaker enters the picture, but methinks heads will be rolling soon. If there's a shred of doubt, I bet he's out. Just ask Hardwicke.
Although Netflix contends that the service is intended to be only a complement to cable TV programming, it is undeniable that the two media competes fiercely for the same public. After all, anyone who can spend money on a paid television system is also usually willing to invest in a broadband connection. In this scenario, the streaming service appears as an increasing threat to channels that provide exclusive content for payment. After all, not only is Netflix available for a large number of devices, but it has enough content to compete with the library of titles of any world-renowned network. Read more
