I've been combing the internet trying to find out more about New Moon, and I am sure many of you are doing the same. I haven't found an official website that will host information about the movie. Which is surprising since I know the script has been written and the actors signed/resigned for the new film. In an effort to learn more I went to Summit Entertainment and checked out their press releases.
From a press release on December 13, 2008:
"Production on NEW MOON is scheduled to begin in the coming months and the studio is planning to release the film towards the end of 2009 or early 2010."
More information on production and release dates was found at Reelz Channel:
If Reelz is right, the movie will start filming in March of 2009 and be released for audience (world-wide?) consumption on November 20th, 2009. That would be fantastic! While I honestly can't say that I love Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) I do look forward to this movie.
One of the things I hope they do is have Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) appear or briefly manifest himself during all of Bella's hallucinations. He could appear over her shoulder scolding her, or hover just out of eyesight and be blurry or ill defined... a menacing guardian angel.
Luckily for Edward fans 90% of the time he and Bella (Kristen Stewart) are separated from each other occurs in a blink of an eye... remember how the chapters became month titles? Not much to go on there - a reckless episode in Port Angeles with Jessica, the idea to refurbish some motorcycles, learning to ride the motorcycles, urge for gory movie, Jacob turning wolfy, more stunts, some cliff diving and wham - back to the hot vampires. 30 minutes to 45 depending on length of film montage... right? right? I hope!
