Weitz is a pretty good choice, considering he has experimented in similar genre shoes before with The Golden Compass
(a film I've yet to see). I'm more of a fan of his in regards to About a Boy
, and it is that film in which I think he has the chops or proven he has the chops to handle something like the Twilight
series, which is more about relationships than vampires.
I think I'm more curious about New Moon
than I was for Twilight
, mostly because it'll likely have a bigger budget, thanks to a successful first film, and because hopefully the main setting will be Italy, and woo for international locations! Plus I love Italy. What a beautiful country...
