Chris Weitz To Direct 'New Moon'
The Golden Compass director Chris Weitz is expected to direct New Moon, the sequel to the hugely successful film Twilight.
According to EW, “Weitz is best-known for his work with his brother Paul. The two directed and produced American Pie and then were nominated for an Academy Award for best screenplay for About a Boy, which they also co-directed. Chris’ first solo directing gig, The Golden Compass, didn’t do well stateside but was a hit internationally.”
It was announced earlier this week that Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke and the movie studio Summit Entertainment were parting ways.
