Kristen Stewart has shared her thought on several early concerns related to "New Moon". Revealing to MTV that she is "really excited" about the "Twilight" sequel, the actress who is known for her portrayal as a teenage girl in love with vampire, Bella Swan, stated her confident on both director Chris Weitz and co-star Taylor Lautner for "New Moon".
While many worries about the changing of director from Catherine Hardwicke to Chris Weitz for the sequel, the 18-year-old who has met the filmmaker shows her support for the "The Golden Compass" helmer. "Chris is - on top of him being a really sweet guy - he is entirely devoted," she gushed in the interview with MTV at Sundance. "And he's very clearly not doing the movie just because it's the next big thing. He really likes it a lot."
On the occasion, Stewart also talked about her relief knowing that Taylor Lautner is returning as Jacob Black. Assuring that she will be able to establish chemistry with Lautner like the one she had with Robert Pattinson, she fessed up, "I'm so glad they didn't have to find somebody else; we already had him!"
"I didn't understand all the deliberation on [whether to bring him back]," she further added. "But now that it's set, we can all rest." On Lautner's physical transformation in his effort to keep the role, the "Panic Room" actress exclaimed, "He's really buff! He definitely is. It took him a lot of time."
Though excited to work on the follow-up of the vampire romance drama, Stewart pointed out that much are on the stake right now. "It's such a machine now. All of a sudden, this movie has become [something bigger]," she explained. "With all the expectations - usually, you make a movie and think, 'If it touches people, great; if it doesn't, then you move on to the next one, and no one's personally affected by it.'...Everyone needs to be on the same page to make the same movie [as the original 'Twilight' was]. Or else it will be a very disoriented project."
"New Moon" is an adaptation to Stephenie Meyer's second novel of her "Twilight" series. Penned by "Twilight" screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, it will be directed by Chris Weitz serving behind the lens. The Summit Entertainment movie is reported to start production in Vancouver in mid-March for November 20, 2009 release.
