    Hopefully Chris Weitz doesn't try to change the story too much. The changed ending for The Golden Compass was annoying. But Chris Weitz has had more experience working on an effects heavy movie compared to Hardwicke so we might be getting a better looking sequel at least.

    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...
