‘Twilight’ Sequels get into Gear
Now that Quantum of Solace is open, all eyes are turning to next week’s release of Twilight. Summit Entertainment has begun putting the pieces in motion to adapt the second of Stephenie Meyer’s novels, New Moon. No final decision will be made until the dollars hit the box office but the worldwide reaction is expected to be intense and profitable.
Melissa Rosenberg has been signed to return and adapt both New Moon and Eclipse as screenplays. That just leaves the final volume, Breaking Dawn, to be assigned.
Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson)’s tragic romance continues through the two books with the introduction of other vampires and a werewolf who tugs at the teen’s heartstrings.
