Summit Entertainment has started preparing the sequel New Moon, based on Stephenie Meyer's second book in the series, and to contain costs, the studio is filming the third book, Eclipse, back to back using the same new director. On Sunday, December 7th, Summit Entertainment confirmed that Catherine Hardwicke will not direct the films New Moon or Eclipse. Filming begins on New Moon in March, 2009, and will continue right through completion of Eclipse. Auditions and any open casting calls for New Moon and Eclipse will be posted here.

wow! we've heard about this plan in the past but I didn't think that it would actually happen. I guess there are pros & cons with this decision, because now I'm thinking they have to rush off the script for ECLIPSE... though I'm hoping that now (if this is confirmed) that they are filming back-to-back the story's continuity would be awesome... the vampires would not age that much... But i'm praying that they would not rush things because TWILIGHTERS deserve better... we made TWILIGHT a box-office hit... they have to make sure that we get what we deserve for the sequels... budget is not issue now.. they have millions of dollars to spend... they dont have a reason now to have crappy CGI's... :D cheers everyone! :D
