New Moon for December '09?
July 4, 2008

It's just a rumor at this point, but word was leaked on the internet that Summit Entertainment, who will be releasing a movie based on Stephenie Meyer's #1 New York Times best-selling novel Twilight on December 12, has also optioned the movie rights to the second novel in the series, New Moon, with plans to adapt it for release in December '09.

This would confirm what Twilight producer Wyck Godfrey told Ryan Rotten back in March which you can read here, saying that the script for the sequel was ready to go:

"The goal is, we've got the [sequel] script ready to go and come December we want to shoot it for about the same time - for the weather and stuff we don't want to be in the heat of the winter. Obviously, you know the next book and know we can go out into the sun a little bit more. Hopefully, we'll have it ready to go and ready to start prepping for the beginning of next year."

The popular love story between a high school girl and a young vampire who hasn't aged in 90 years is being adapted by Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen) although there's no word if she'll continue onto the sequel as well.

Stay tuned for more information as we get it.

First.....this is great but i wish we didnt have to wait another's killing me to wait 6 months for twilight

I hope Catherine does stay on board because no matter the result, I'm sure no one would be able to pull off a better adaptation of Twilight then she can. She seems to fully grasp how teenagers think and behave, and understand the characters and the story of Twilight itself.

As much as fans want this to be true, even if they have optioned the book, only a strong box office in December for TWILIGHT will green light the sequel. So, if fans want to see the entire series made, make sure you spend some cash for the first movie. And I think Catherine is the best option to continue our beloved series! I think Summit has done a stellar job so far keeping true to the source material and keeping the fans in mind.

I hope Catherine sticks around for ALL of them, she is so passionate about the story and has such attention to detail. I hope they get the green light to film the rest of the series back to back.

I don't know how big the box office has to be for them to do a sequel. They just have to make their money back and that shouldn't be that difficult to do with a budget of around 30mil. It would have to really flop to not make that back. I've seen a lot of estimates putting Twilight in 35-45mil range for opening weekend. I think we will at least see new moon as a sequel as for the others I don't know.

Posted by: maggie on July 5, 2008 at 11:12:35

Yes!!! They're making new moon! But why does it
have to be released so later. -_- Well I guess
the wait is on.

Posted by: Indispensable Nobody on July 5, 2008 at 13:16:45

We should be -happy- that it might see an '09 release... It's much better than waiting three years like many fans do for other series, right?

Posted by: Alicia on July 5, 2008 at 14:51:55

Since Twilight is low budget film, it really doesn't have to make a lot of money at the box office to do well. There will definitely be a sequel. No need to worry :)

Posted by: AEC on July 5, 2008 at 19:47:54

OH HOLY CRAP!!! i think i just had a seizure!! if this is true!! but i do hope that they stick to the book queit a bit on NEW MOON... and then they will be just one step to go to make ECLIPSE!!!(my favorite)!!

Posted by: Ashley on July 5, 2008 at 23:39:16

As much as everyone speculates how well Twilight is going to do in the box office, you have to look at the buzz already coming in for the film. At its the most watched trailer, all of the leading actors are most searched under the top thiry, and Breaking Dawn is the most anticipated novel of the year. This is without the biggest factor- fans sneaking onto the set every day of filming to watch. There's no doubt in mind mind that there's going to be sequels because its almost positive that Twilight is going to do well.

The only question now is, how is it going to fair up against Harry Potter?

Yeah i also heard in an interview somewhere that most of the cast signed up for their same roles in new moon :-)

Posted by: Helena on July 6, 2008 at 14:51:21

Well said, Ashley! There'll be no problems with it, for sure.

Posted by: Zach on July 6, 2008 at 17:20:14

Holy crap! They are making New Moon?! This is by far the best news I have heard since I knew Twilight was becoming a movie! Ashley, by the way, you are exactly right. I agree with you and Helena. :)

Posted by: edward on July 7, 2008 at 08:16:03

I,as a complete Twilight fan will,of course,support the idea of New Moon being made into a movie.But I sometimes wonder,won't it be a little hard as the whole front section of the book is about Bella being a zombie and all that and I think that it will kinda be boring in a movie.In a book,it's absolutely no problem as we get to read her thoughts and emotions and all that but in a movie,well...I had my doubts.

Posted by: edward on July 7, 2008 at 08:34:41

And i'm still thoroughly dazed that they're actually going to make it into a movie. I mean I practically screamed when I found out about Twilight. I just love Stephenie Meyer. And I'm waiting in vain for Breaking Dawn. Really, it's suffering.

Posted by: hannah on July 7, 2008 at 09:09:58

actually edward hasnt aged in 107 years

Posted by: joe asylo on July 7, 2008 at 18:13:56

Posted by: Emily on July 8, 2008 at 09:20:52

Wow! i cannot wait for twilight's movie..
The story in the novel, really make me love it.
I like horror,action, and the romance one.
And i surprise that twilight movie will play on December.
I cannot wait it anymore.
But it was a great novel book ever.

Posted by: LeeLee on July 23, 2008 at 03:19:37

omfg i cant believe this i really hope they go through with this even though New Moon wasnt the best book for me i still want 2 see it1

Posted by: Chelsea on August 7, 2008 at 19:58:12

I REALLY hope that they make the other movies. I don't think it would feel right if they didn't.

Posted by: Erika on August 25, 2008 at 15:13:01

Lisha Cullen,
do you know, or can you direct me to, the interview that you heard of the cast for New Moon?

Posted by: Carlie on September 24, 2008 at 22:55:01

New moon cast!!! please!!!

Posted by: Beth on October 5, 2008 at 22:26:29

I hope they make all the books into movies I agree that new moon that there is a lot less Edward but maybe they could put in what he was doing while Bella was alone.

Stephenie Meyer is a genius
