CHRIS WEITZ SAYS HE VOTED FOR HIS “HOMIE” ANNA KENDRICK FOR OSCAR
In an interview with People Magazine, Chris Weitz admits that he voted for Anna Kendrick for Best Supporting Actress, “because she’s my homie.” He also comments on how “New Moon” could have more nominations if the Academy had a different composition of voting members. He tells People, “If only the Academy were composed of teenage girls, I might be looking at a Best Picture nom,” he joked. “It’s a scandal that there are not more teenage girls in the Academy.”
DAVID SLADE TO TACKLE “THE SHADOW” NEXT
According to Collider, Slade might be scheduled to helm the project thanks to the “handing off the director’s chair” of the movie by Sam Raimi.
“Previously set up at Sony Pictures, the reboot will go back to the comic book and radio serial roots of the character,” reports Dark Horizons.
According to the Latino Review, “‘The Shadow’ debuted in 1931 on a CBS radio show which aimed to boost the magazine circulation of sponsor Street & Smith.
KRISTEN STEWART AND DAKOTA FANNING IN FINAL PROMO POSTER FOR “THE RUNAWAYS”
With the film debuting in theaters in select cities on March 19 (everywhere on April 9), the promotional push for Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning’s “The Runaways” is gaining momentum. While we’ve seen this image multiple times, this is the first time it’s been shown as a promotional poster for the movie.
CHRIS WEITZ ON “BREAKING DAWN”
In a recent interview with mtv.com, Chris Weitz shares his thoughts on whether the film should be done in 3-D, whether it should be two films or just one, and if he will return to direct the final installment(s) of the series.
Chris Weitz on Breaking Dawn in 3-D:
“I think that 3-D is great so long as it’s not used in a gimmicky fashion and it can supply extraordinary depth to the visual experience.”
One Film or Two?
“I think that it makes sense for it to be split into two parts, because it’s quite a dense book with a lot going on.”
Will he return to directing the Saga?
“But I think I’m on record saying I have a 2-and-a-half-year-old son, and each one of these movies — especially because it’d be such a long shoot as ‘Breaking Dawn’ — it kind of brings me to the edge of my physical and mental endurance. And I just don’t believe I have it in me, and I think that it’s appropriate that someone else go ahead and do it.”

ROBERT PATTINSON TALKS “REMEMBER ME” IN NEW PODCAST
“Remember Me” could be considered Robert Pattinson’s first big outing — not playing a vampire — and the studio, Summit Entertainment, conducts an exclusive podcast with Rob about the film.
So what does Rob really think about the film? In various interviews during a whirlwind promotional tour in New York, Rob said he felt it was a movie that had to be made.
Now in exclusive podcasts, he talks in-depth about the film, its characters, including Emilie de Ravin, and the making of “Remember Me.”
ARE STEPHENIE MEYER’S “TWILIGHT” BOOKS LOSING A BIT OF THEIR HOLD?
We’ve all gotten so used to seeing them there that it’s a shock to have them disappear. But for the first time in more than two years, none of the books in Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” series is ranked in the Top 20 of USA Today’s bestseller list. “Is that old vampire magic beginning to lose its spell?” the paper asks. “Maybe just a bit.”
So far, however, none of the books has slipped too far. “Eclipse” is at No. 23 (down from No. 13 last week), while “Breaking Dawn” is at No. 24 (it was at No. 14 last week), and “New Moon” is at No. 31 (down from No. 20). “Twilight,” the first book in the series, slipped from No. 27 to No. 44.
It could be that readers are restless for something more. Actor Kellan Lutz, who plays the character Emmett in the “Twilight” series movies, called on Meyer this week to write a new book. As “Twilight” fans know only too well, Meyer did begin a fifth book in the series, titled “Midnight Sun.” But she ceased writing when the manuscript was illegally leaked and posted online. She reported in her blog that, after the leak, “I feel too sad about what has happened to continue working on Midnight Sun, and so it is on hold indefinitely.”
I have to admit…I will probably get The Twilight Cookbook. I love to cook and I love Twilight and $10 is a reasonable price for a gimmicky cookbook.
I love Chris Weitz’s sense of humor about the Academy and their uppity attitude about films (OK, so I editorialized a little bit). I do agree that a lot of good films get overlooked because they’re not artsy-fartsy enough for the Academy. I hate that he won’t be returning for “Breaking Dawn”, but I completely respect and admire his reasons for it.
I don’t think that the on-demand enticement will be enough for me to get the movie from Amazon. I want the 3-disc set from Target anyway.
I am really looking forward to “Remember Me” opening on Friday. I love how he feels about this movie and the story that it tells. The fact that the “Eclipse” trailer will show just before it just makes it all the more exciting!
I find it funny that people are relishing in Stephenie Meyer’s books dropping in the charts. Hello….they’ve consistently been in the top 25 for YEARS. Haven’t these people ever heard of market saturation? It’s going to happen and it doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with people losing interest in the story or the genre. I’d venture to guess that she’ll remain in the top 100 for several years to come. When/if she completes “Midnight Sun”, it would be safe to say that we’d see a huge surge in the popularity of the first four books once again.
