The development of "Twilight" sequel, "New Moon", is slowly taking shape. After "Twilight" screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg is signed to pen the sequel and Summit Entertainment officially give it the green light, Access Hollywood comes out with a news that the romantic vampire drama's helmer, Catherine Hardwicke, is in negotiations to direct the follow-up movie.
Though reporting on the speculation, Access Hollywood mentioned that the filmmaker has been avoiding on giving any clues on her return in earlier interview. When asked by USA Today about her future plans for Taylor Launter, the actor who plays Jacob Black, Hardwicke said, "I've got this to say about Taylor. He told me the other day that he had gained 14 pounds since I last saw him. He's only 16. I think he's chanting to make himself grow."
"New Moon" is an adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's second novel in her Twilight series. The official announcement of "New Moon" development came after "Twilight" scored big on its opening day with $35.7 million on its pocket. Previously, it has been reported that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will earn $12 million each for this sequel.
