The Hollywood Reporter: Chris Weitz On New Moon

The Hollywood Reporter has a new interview with Chris where he talks about New Moon, working with SM, and more.

lol I love the illustration! xD

The Hollywood Reporter: Why did you want to do a “Twilight” movie?

Chris Weitz: The tonality of the movie, which has a lot to do with heartbreak and longing, depression and reunion and ecstasy — these were emotions that struck a chord in me. I really loved the cast; Kristen (Stewart) and Rob (Pattinson) both are exceptionally talented. And I wanted to get my hand back in the game. There were a lot of things in this movie that I knew how to do: A combination of telling a character-based story but also handling special effects and working with young actors.

THR: How much did you interact with Stephenie Meyer?

Weitz: A lot; we’ve had a real good collaboration. Crucially, she approved me as director, and she didn’t have to. We had some discussions that were very important — my convincing her that I didn’t want to take her baby and run away with it, or tell a story that was counter to the spirit of what she was trying to tell. I see myself, in the last few movies I’ve done, as adapting literary properties into film, so that’s how I treated this one. We got along like a house on fire.

THR: How much do you interact with the Twi-hards?

Weitz: Quite a bit. I don’t have an online, direct relation with the fans; I was too busy making the movie. But I sort of feel as though every bit of footage I get out is speaking to the fans in a way. I’ve only addressed the fans directly twice: At the very beginning, when I said, “Don’t worry, I’m going to take care of this book,” and then to address an insane rumor that all the Volturi were naked in their introductory scene. But I listened to what they have to say by checking in on the Internet. I didn’t do it that much while we were shooting because I didn’t want to get swayed one way or another; it would be like a politician just going by the polls. But now that the footage is complete, I kind of enjoy just checking in various sites and seeing what they like.

Eclipse Set Update: Tent Scenes, Riley and Victoria

Lainey has the Eclipse set report for the week; apparently they shot more tent interiors as well as the scene where Victoria and Riley show up at the tent to fight.

“As for what she’s been working on this week, it’s primarily been scenes in studio. The first few days were “tent interiors” with Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson as “Jacob” and “Edward” gushing all over her. . .
Anyway, after the tent scenes were completed, they continued to shoot the same location but this time with Xavier Samuel. “Riley” and “Victoria” show up. And then of course “Bella” is the ultimate hero because she cuts herself and the good guys triumph. Apparently they filmed alongside some kind of wolf suit.”

The wolf suit must be Seth! 🙂 this is making me so excited for eclipse and new moon isnt even out yet, just 33 days to go!! 😀

Xavier Samuel Shoots Opening Riley Scene

According to Lainey, the opening scene of Eclipse involves human Riley running from Victoria and then getting bitten. She has several pics of the scene being shot.

Exclusive

This is Xavier Samuel on Wednesday night shooting Twilight Eclipse soaking wet, filming in the fake rain over and over again. My source tells me he’s wearing a wetsuit under those clothes to stay dry/warm(er). This is why he appears to be a little more robust. As you’ve seen from his candids, Samuel is rather slight.

Here’s a juicy detail:

I’m told exclusively that Xavier is working on what’s currently intended (at press time) to be the OPENING SCENE in Eclipse. “Riley” in human form is being terrorised down an alley in Seattle pursued by a sinister shadow which turns out to be “Victoria”. He cannot outrun her, she attacks him, and as you can see from the exclusive video below (from PUNKD Images) he writhes in pain from being bitten.

Oooh exciting!  🙂

im thinking its the scene where Jacob goes to talk to Bella and jumps into her room through the window and jumps back out again,it’s just a little confusing because it looks like shes just letting him instead of freaking out.               otherwise i think its awesome.what do you guys think ?

*Thanks again Jen*
