    Kirsten Stewart set for 'Runaways'

    'Twilight' star to play Joan Jett

    By Erin Maxwell
    Variety

    Kirsten Stewart is shifting from vampires to rockers.

    The "Twilight" star is set to topline in "The Runaways," a rock biopic of the '70s all-girl band. Thesp will star as frontwoman Joan Jett.

    Film will follow the early beginnings of the Runaways, whose members include Jett, Lita Ford and Cherri Currie. Best known for their hit song "Cherry Bomb," the teen band was highly influential in the music scene of the late '70s and early '80s.

    Shooting will begin in early 2009 and will accommodate Stewart's commitment to the "Twilight" sequel, "New Moon," also slated to begin lensing at that time.

    I really think they are going to make the Edward-less time seem not so long in the movie. The scenes with the Volturi are so great too.

    SUMMIT BEGINS SEARCH FOR NEW MOON DIRECTOR
    Los Angeles, CA, December 7, 2008 – Summit Entertainment and director Catherine Hardwicke jointly announced today that the filmmaker will not be directing the next installment in the newly minted TWILIGHT film franchise. Summit’s targeted end of 2009 or early 2010 release of the film, NEW MOON, does not work with Ms. Hardwicke’s required prep time to bring her vision of the film to the big screen. Thus as has been done before with many successful film franchises, the studio will employ a new director for NEW MOON.

    “I am sorry that due to timing I will not have the opportunity to direct NEW MOON,” said Hardwicke. “Directing TWILIGHT has been one of the great experiences of my life, and I am grateful to the fans for their passionate support of the film. I wish everyone at Summit the best with the sequel– it is a great story.”
    “Catherine did an incredible job in helping us to launch the TWILIGHT franchise and we thank her for all of her efforts and we very much hope to work with her on future Summit projects,” said Erik Feig, Summit’s President of Production. “We as a studio have a mandate to bring the next installment in the franchise to the big screen in a timely fashion so that fans can get more of Edward, Bella and all of the characters that Stephenie Meyer has created. We are able to pursue an aggressive time frame as we have the luxury of only adapting the novels into screenplays as opposed to having to create a storyline from scratch.”

    Re: New Moon Movie (Twilight Saga Book #2)

    So the new movie won't look like Lords of Dogtown with vampires and wolves? Yay!

    (Sorry, the more I think about it the more quasi-angry I get because seriously it looked like a bad 70s movie.)

    I really have mixed emotions about this. The changing of a director can be a good and bad thing. With this announcement I worry that the cast itself will change too....

    Re: New Moon Movie (Twilight Saga Book #2)

    Okay... I can't handle the thought of a new director right now lol

    So let's talk about Volturi casting again

    I think the guy who plays Snape from Harry Potter could easily play Caius or Marcus.

    Re: New Moon Movie (Twilight Saga Book #2)

    As soon as I finish "Bright Lights..." I'm going to start re-reading New Moon, so I can get a handle/remember the Volturis a little more. Based on what I remember I kinda' want a character actor to play Caius. Like someone you wouldn't immediately recognize but then you realize you've seen him everywhere. Or how awesome would it be to have some screen legend from Italy that Americans don't know and kinda' fell out of popularity with the Italians play some of the Volturis?

    Re: New Moon Movie (Twilight Saga Book #2)

    The word from inside Summit is that Hardwicke, the acclaimed Thirteen and Lords of Dogtown and The Nativity Story director, "was 'difficult' and 'irrational' during the making of Twilight," one insider explains to me. "That doesn't mean anything when you're talking about a filmmaker because they all are, but still..." (Joe Roth and Sony kept saying that about Julie Taymor on Across The Universe. Yet she made a cult classic and is now directing Marvel/Sony's Spider-Man for Broadway.)

    But an outside source also informs me, "Summit didn't like her. They're saying the DP [director of photography] Elliot Davis is the one responsible for the film's sumptuous visual look, that the editor Nancy Richardson had to save the film in post-production, and Summit thought Hardwicke's [CAA] agent Beth Swofford was alternately ineffectual and hysterical. It certainly demonstrates, while CAA agents boast of their vast influence, how little clout and muscle they actually have, or are willing to use, to protect their artists."

    Maybe New Moon won't suck as much as Twilight now!

    Of course, the downside is that it probably won't be nearly as hilarious.
    KABLAM!

    Re: New Moon Movie (Twilight Saga Book #2)

    A Julie Taymor comparrison? Ouch!

    I will say that a new director is a good thing. The cast is in place, all they have to do is cast non-ugly Native American people (Jacob's friends in this movie were bad!), creepy old people, a creepy little girl, and they're good. And think about the Harry Potter movies: they played director lottery and that was a good thing (think about seeing all 8 HP movies made by Chris Colombus... icky). We have our universe set up now give us funness.
