Hero Central: ‘Twilight Moms’ Donate Books to Children’s Hospital

www.13wmaz.com: A group of Central Georgia moms joined the Hero Army and donated books to children in need Thursday.

The Twilight Moms of Middle Georgia collected hundreds of books, packs of crayons and coloring books for The Children’s Hospital in Macon.

The group gets together to celebrate the Twilight books and movies. Member Cindy Adrien says about 30 women collected the items during a September 13 dinner for character Bella’s birthday.

Hospital staff say the donation helps keep bookshelves full and replenish a coloring book collection damaged by a water leak during renovations.

‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ hits Showtime in January

www.examiner.com: Back in July of last year, Showtime nabbed the pay cable rights to Twilight, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (they also house Peter Facinelli’s Nurse Jackie and Melissa Rosenberg’s Dexter), and they began running Twilight on cable in January of this year.

Thanks to HitFix, it is now known that New Moon will be hitting Showtime for its cable debut on January 8th, 2011!

Back when it was announced that FX had obtained the rights to show the Saga on network television, it was noted that FX would begin showing the films in 2011. So, as New Moon approaches pay cable release, Twilight nears time to hit the networks!

‘Twilight’ almost became a very different movie, says producer

popwatch.ew.com: Twilight producer Mark Morgan describe what almost became of Stephenie Meyer’s books. When the project was set up at Paramount — back before the books became a phenomenon and the fans were as vocal, in the studio’s defense — it was going to be an action movie.

“I mean, one of their drafts literally had a Korean FBI agent who was hunting and tracking vampires across the coast. There was SWAT in the trees and literally it was like, ‘Red leader, red leader 1′ and the vampires were picking them out of the woods. It would have been a different movie. They had Bella fighting back. They had her father dying in one of the scripts, actually, and her becoming a vampire in the first movie. There were a lot of weird things that I don’t think they understood at the time, because the books were just becoming popular. By the time [the script] got to Summit, they were smart enough to say ‘You know what? Let’s throw out all the old scripts and let’s start from scratch.”

It was sweet of the Twimoms to do that for the kids. It’s always good to read a good book when you have to wait or are sick. What did you think?

What do you think of the almost action Twilight movie? Would it have interested you?
