The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has been nominated for a whole slew of MTV Movie Awards, including two nominations for Best Kiss, one for a Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson smooch and another for Stewart and Taylor Lautner. Catherine Hardwicke, who directed the movie adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight, was interviewed by MTV about the double nomination. She unfortunately didn't admit to which fella she was voting for.
Maybe it can be a tie? That would be perfect! I think [that's] the safest solution to this problem.
Well, we're going to go ahead and mark down for Team Edward.
The MTV movie awards air June 5, and fans will pick who the better kisser is. Though with the Twilight fans divided it might just go to Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis's Black Swan kiss. Posted 05.31.11 by Mandy

Director Catherine Hardwicke has finally completed her follow-up to Twilight and Twi-hards will be pleased to know she's still dealing with the supernatural, forbidden love, and werewolves. A new poster and trailer have arrived online for Red Riding Hood, Hardwicke's retelling of the classic fairy tale. While the official synopsis doesn't exactly reveal whether the werewolf will appear shirtless or not, it does show that there's plenty to keep Twilight fans happy.
In the March 11 release, Amanda Seyfried plays Valerie, a beautiful young woman torn between two men. She is in love with a brooding outsider, Peter (Shiloh Fernandez), but her parents have arranged for her to marry the wealthy Henry (Max Irons). Unwilling to lose each other, Valerie and Peter are planning to run away together when they learn that Valerie's older sister has been killed by the werewolf that prowls the dark forest surrounding their village. For years, the people have maintained an uneasy truce with the beast, offering the creature a monthly animal sacrifice. But under a blood red moon, the wolf has upped the stakes by taking a human life. Hungry for revenge, the people call on famed werewolf hunter, Father Solomon (Gary Oldman), to help them kill the wolf. But Solomon's arrival brings unintended consequences as he warns that the wolf, who takes human form by day, could be any one of them. As the death toll rises with each moon, Valerie begins to suspect that the werewolf could be someone she loves. As panic grips the town, Valerie discovers that she has a unique connection to the beast--one that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect...and bait. watch the trailer >> Posted 11.17.10 by Ryan

Melissa Rosenberg, the woman responsible for adapting The Twilight Saga for the big screen, recently spoke to the aptly titled Vampires & Slayers about all things Stephenie Meyer.
When asked about her involvement on third movie Eclipse, Rosenberg said of director David Slade:
David is very used to working with writers, so he's very collaborative. He's very strong visually, he's an artist, so he storyboards everything down to the most minute details. All my rewrites can really be tailored to his visions, he really stays true to his original storyboards.
Rosenberg also goes on to talk about working with directors Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) and Chris Weitz (New Moon), and how they helped her condense scenes for the book-to-movie adaptation.
What do you think of her work, Twilighters? Has she done a good job of all the major book scenes, or do Bella and Edward need more steamy screen time? Let us know in the comments. Posted 03.09.10 by reelz
Warner Bros. and Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way production company are moving forward with an adaptation of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood that they are hoping will be the next Twilight. The script, titled The Girl With the Red Riding Hood, apparently has been around for a while, but it wasn't until writer David Johnson (Orphan) did some revisions that the project started to pick up some heat. According to the L.A. Times, Johnson's updated take on the 19th-Century fairy tale contains "the requisite dark/dangerous/romantic elements that can appeal to Twilight fans..."
At the time of the initial announcement, Catherine Hardwick, the director of Twilight, was said to be attached to direct The Girl With the Red Riding Hood, but this has never been officially confirmed. The Times article also mentioned this as a possibility, citing the fact that the holding deal that Hardwicke signed with Warner Bros. is up this month and her involvement with Riding Hood would fit into Warner's plans to target the Twilight audience. No casting decisions have been made yet, but Amanda Seyfried (Dear John) is reportedly the top contender for the title role. Posted 02.23.10 by BrentJS
Robert Pattinson has finally broken his silence and has admitted he's dating Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart. Rumors have been flying for months, and were quickly denied, with both parties citing their friendship as the reason behind their close relationship.
Pattinson's admission came after he and Stewart attended the BAFTA awards on Sunday night, albeit separately. Speaking to British newspaper The Sun, he said:
It is extremely difficult but we are together, yes. We can't arrive at the same time because of the fans. It goes crazy. This was supposed to be a public appearance as a couple but it's impossible. We are here together and it's a public event but it's not easy. We have to do all this stuff to avoid attention.
Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke also chimed in on the news, saying:
In terms of what Kristen told me directly, it didn't happen on the first movie. Nothing crossed the line while on the first film. After I cast him, I told Rob, "Don't even think about having a romance with her. She's under 18. You will be arrested."
What do you think of this breaking news, Twilighters? Are you glad they've finally admitted their relationship, or don't you care? Let us know in the comments. Posted 02.23.10 by reelz
Kellan Lutz, the man behind "monkey man" Emmett Cullen, spoke to MTV about The Twilight Saga and how each director has brought something new to the franchise.
On the subject of differences within the saga, Lutz had this to say about directors Catherine Hardwicke, Chris Weitz, and David Slade:
Catherine Hardwicke was very energetic, and she made this beautiful movie. Chris Weitz had this really cool, really laid-back vibe, but has a great sense of how to do CGI and how to make these wolves look real and bigger than life versus just some computerized image. Then David Slade, with his action background and his indie style, just mixed the two. The movies are going to be unique in their own aspects, and that's what's really interesting — it's not the same director doing each one. We, as actors, got to see different styles of directing. So it doesn't feel old, ever.
When asked about his favorite New Moon scene, he replied with an answer sure to please the many fans of Charlie Swan and Billy Burke.
My favorite scene is probably anything that Charlie is in, played by Billy Burke. He just has this great comedic timing, and every scene with him, I get a laugh out of. And there's just tons of action. That's the thing too, seeing the wolves actually fight each other and roughhouse. It's really interesting to see what Chris did.
So, Twilighters, what's your take on the saga's directors? Who's your favorite? Do you think they'll do a good job bringing the characters to life? Let us know in the comments. Posted 10.27.09 by reelz
Collider.com recently spoke to Shauna Cross about forthcoming YA book-to-movie project If I Stay. Cross is currently set to write the adaptation, with Twilight's Catherine Hardwicke attached to direct.
Of the movie, Cross said:
It's about a young woman who gets in a terrible car accident with her family, and it follows the 24 hours of her outside of her body in a coma. We're just about to go to cast. It';s got an edge to it and it's funny and heartbreaking and it's a little Lovely Bones-esque. There is definitely a lot of humor in there but it's definitely more dramatic than I've done before. It's been an amazing experience and it's an incredible story.
When asked about Hardwicke's involvement, Cross said, "She is attached to a lot of things. It sort of depends on which lands first. I don't know where Hamlet is at right now." If I Stay author Gayle Forman is definitely happy about the prospect of a Hardwicke movie, saying:
I've been a Catherine Hardwicke fan since Thirteen, and I just think she is one of those teen-savants. There are people who are good at working with/dealing with teens. And then there are people who seem to have never stopped being teens in some essential way, so it's effortless for them to interpret the teen world. I've never met her, but judging from her work, Catherine Hardwicke falls into that latter category. Plus, her visual style! And she's so imaginative. As you can see, I'm over the moon at the prospect of her working on If I Stay. It makes me feel like my baby is in good hands..
With If I Stay set to be a teen version of The Lovely Bones, we're betting Summit are going to spend some money on this one. Drama, romance and tragedy -- what more could they want? Posted 10.03.09 by reelz
