Targeted to be released in between the end of 2009 or early 2010, "New Moon" is now leaning towards end of 2009 debut. Entertainment Weekly (EW) breaks the news that Summit Entertainment have tentatively slated the "Twilight" sequel for November 20, 2009 release.

Giving more update for "New Moon", EW continues to note that the production of this Stephenie Meyer's second novel adaptation will start in mid-March. With that schedule in mind, the publication mentions that the director who will replace "Twilight" helmer Catherine Hardwicke will have to be in Vancouver by December 15 to begin the 12 weeks of pre-production.

Through a joint statement from Catherine Hardwicke and Summit Entertainment released previously, it has been revealed that Hardwicke won't return to direct "New Moon". Following the announcement, the name of "The Golden Compass" director, Chris Weitz, came up to the surface as potential helmer. Still, none is certain yet on Hardwicke's replacer.

"New Moon" itself will be adapted by "Twilight" screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg. While both Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are expected to reprise their roles as Edward and Bella, speculation over the back-to-back production of the movie with the third film from the series, "Eclipse", has been making its round.

omj this is great. i cant wait til it comes out. it will be just as good if not better. i kinda wish they couldve released it on november 21st for like a reunion/traditional thing. and i really hope they dont rush it and keep the key moments in it. and make the end really intense and tear-jerking.
