More Edward in New Moon

While talking to E! Online, Twilight Saga screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg addressed the more-Edward-in-New-Moon rumors, as well as her personal pick for the character of Riley in Eclipse. She said:
In the book, [Edward]'s actually an enormous presence in [Bella's] mind. He's so present in her mind throughout the entire center of the book, so we really played off that, and it kept him alive in a slightly different way, but fans will feel it's true to the book. You can't have a Twilight without Rob Pattinson.
Whether this will go down well with fans is anyone's guess, as they're all very protective of the original source material. And rightly so, too. Why change an element that is adored by millions of Twilighters?
Rosenberg also talked about Channing Tatum, and how she feels he'd be perfect for the role of Riley in Eclipse. Well, he's definitely got the beefcake look going on, but a vampire? Hmm. He'd have to perfect a mean I'm-going-to-eat-you look first.
