chris weitz forgot to put stephenie meyer into film about her book

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

chris weitz, the director of the testosterone driven ‘american pie’ and ‘about a boy’ films and the absolutely useless ‘golden compass’ was hired for some inexplicable reason to direct the sequel to ‘twilight’ (called ‘new moon’).

in this interview with time magazine he admits that he forgot to put the author of the wildly successful book series in the film. ‘But I had kind of forgotten that she had a cameo in the first one, and she never asked, she’s very quiet and gracious about it. I don’t know if she wanted to or not. I probably should have.’ that is what some women would say is a typical guy response ‘she never asked.’ i guess those tween-aged girls are wondering what sort of stuff david (i wouldn’t know how a girl thinks if she was feeding me the info on a plate) slade will forget in this next film.

it seems he’s already made his first mistake by throwing rachelle lefevre under the bus.

comic con coverage on youtube. hall c. the clips up now are primarily for new moon. when i find stuff on avatar, alice in wonderland, james cameron or tim burton, will post asap. this is a super cheesie clip from new moon. it just smells terrible. chris weitz has turned this into a beefcake movie. and the whole gothic look and feel of the original is gone. whats with all the warm tones and earth colors. this is a frickin vampire and shape changer (not werewolf) movie.
