The Twilight Saga: New Moon
Information about The Twilight Saga: New MoonNew Moon (marketed as The Twilight (54 walls) Saga: New Moon, also known as Twilight (54 walls) II: New Moon or just Twilight (54 walls) II) is an upcoming 2009 (8 years ago) United States romantic fantasy movie scheduled for release on Nov. 20, 2009 (8 years ago). It is based on the novel of the same name by Stephenie Meyer and is the sequel to 2008's Twilight (54 walls), which is based on Meyer's previous novel. Directed by Chris Weitz, the movie stars Kristen Stewart (43 walls), Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, reprising their roles as Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, and Jacob Black, respectively. Melissa Rosenberg returns as the screenwriter for the film. She handed in a draft of the movie script during the opening weekend of Twilight. Summit Entertainment greenlit the sequel in late Nov. 2008 (9 years ago), following the early success of Twilight.
PlotWhen asked about the sequel, Twilight (54 walls) director Catherine Hardwicke stated, "It's got werewolves, it's got visual effects that turn people into werewolves, it's got motorcycle stunts, you go to Italy. It's probably twice as much as this [to film]."
On dec. 13, 2008 (9 years ago), Summit Entertainment released a synopsis of New Moon, which states: "Bella Swan is devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love, Edward Cullen, but her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black. Suddenly she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and finds her loyalties tested."
CastingDue to major physical changes that occur in the character of Jacob Black between Twilight (54 walls) and New Moon, Weitz considered replacing Taylor Lautner in the sequel with an actor who could more accurately portray "the new, larger Jacob Black." In an attempt to keep the role, Lautner weight-trained extensively and gained approximately 30 pounds. In Jan. 2009 (8 years ago), Weitz and Summit Entertainment announced that Lautner would continue to play the role of Jacob in New Moon. In an interview, fellow cast member Kristen Stewart (43 walls) talked about Lautner's transformation saying, "He's an entirely different person physically."
In late Mar. 2009 (8 years ago), Summit Entertainment released a list of the actors who would be portraying the "wolf pack" alongside Lautner. The casting for the rest of the Quileute tribe was headed by casting director Rene Haynes, who has worked on movies with large Native American casts, such as Dances with Wolves and Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee. A casting call was also held in Vancouver in Feb. 2009 (8 years ago), specifically asking for "any first nations/aboriginal actors and actresses between the ages of 15 and 25".
Talking about the casting of Michael Sheen as Aro, director Chris Weitz claims to have "'aggressively' pursued the actor", and describes the character as "on the surface, a very gracious and friendly vampire, but beneath that he is a tremendous threat."
FilmingPre-production for New Moon was started in dec. 2008 (9 years ago). Filming was scheduled to begin on Mar. 23, 2009 (8 years ago) in Vancouver, but began a few days early. David Thompson Secondary School served as the location for the high school scenes in the movie. Filming in Montepulciano, Italy occurred in late May 2009 (8 years ago).
MusicThe score for New Moon is being composed by Alexandre Desplat. He replaces Carter Burwell, who wrote the score for the previous film, Twilight. New Moon director Chris Weitz has a working relationship with Desplat, who scored one of his previous films, The Golden Compass. The band Paramore, who had two songs on the Twilight (54 walls) soundtrack, will not be contributing to the soundtrack for New Moon. Weitz says that the soundtrack will feature songs from Radiohead, Muse, and Band of Skulls. On Jul. 26, 2009 (8 years ago), Jeph Howard of the band The Used stated on Twitter that he and his band were in the studio recording a song for the New Moon soundtrack. Death Cab for Cutie will contribute the soundtrack's lead single, a song written specifically for the movie called "Meet Me On the Equinox", which will debut sep. 13 during the MTV Video Music Awards. Bassist Nick Harmer says, "We wrote 'Meet Me On the Equinox' to reflect the celestial themes and motifs that run throughout the Twilight (54 walls) series and we wanted to capture that desperate feeling of endings and beginnings that so strongly affect the main characters." The soundtrack, which was chosen by music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas, will be released on Oct. 20, 2009 (8 years ago) by Chop Shop Records in conjunction with Atlantic Records.
DevelopmentIn early Nov. 2008 (9 years ago), Summit announced that they had obtained the rights to the remaining books in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight (54 walls) series: New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. On Nov. 22, 2008 (9 years ago), one day after the theatrical release of Twilight (54 walls), Summit confirmed that they would begin working on New Moon. "I don't think any other author has had a more positive experience with the makers of her movie adaptation than I have had with Summit Entertainment," said Meyer. Melissa Rosenberg had been working on adapting the novel prior to Twilight's release and handed in the draft for New Moon during Twilight's opening weekend in Nov. 2008 (9 years ago).
In early dec. 2008 (9 years ago), it was announced that Twilight (54 walls) director Catherine Hardwicke would not be returning to direct the sequel. Hardwicke cited time restrictions as the reason behind her leaving the project. On dec. 13, 2008 (9 years ago), it was announced that Chris Weitz, director of The Golden Compass (10 walls) and co-director of American Pie, had been hired to direct New Moon.
