While we ignored New Moon's new logo announcement--I mean, c'mon, is that REALLY news, plus you can knock yourself out at Cinematical--we cannot ignore the announcement that there will indeed be a third installment to the Twilight series. As if there was any doubt eh,?
Interesting news though, New Moon director, Chris Weitz will no be helming the third flick. New Moon will be released November 20, 2009, and they are currently in preproduction. If that sounds like a short turnaround, well, it's because it is. The threquel will bow June 30, 2010, meaning Weitz wouldn't have enough time to start filming Eclipse as he would still be in preproduction, so get it out of your pretty little heads that it's anything more dramatic.
Eclipse is described as such: "As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob -- knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death."
Excited for a third film before a second one has even come out? And, again, I don't know how I got to be point person on all this Twilight madness considering the movie stunk for me and I've never read the books, so if you want to put me out of my misery on reporting this tween drama, tell us if you care or not about Twilight. Yay or nay?
