Looks like “Twilight” stars Peter Facinelli and Kellan Lutz decided that it was about time they read the novel their new movie is based on. Yes, after filming on “New Moon” commenced last week, the actors were snapped in the airport this weekend reading the Stephanie Myers novel.
But maybe they’ve just got some time to kill since it was rumored that production on the sucky sequel (blood-wise, not content) would be halted due to a plagiarism lawsuit filed by Stephanie’s college roommate. Supposedly, Heidi Stanton just became aware of the cultural phenomenon after viewing the movie for the first time last week.
First of all, even if you’re deaf, live under a rock and don’t own a set of eyes, you still know what “Twilight” is. I mean, my great-grandmother said to me a few weeks back that Edward reminded her of a suitor she knew back in the day. I fully had a fleeting flash of my granny flying through the trees, in roaring ’20s regalia, and watching her man-friend sparkle in the sun.
I don’t buy this story so much — the lawsuit, not my granny’s — especially since Summit, the studio producing “Twilight,” calls Heidi’s claims ridiculous and promises production would not be stopped for even a heartbeat. Or whatever the undead equivalent is.

Over the last few months, a lot of cyber-ink has been spilled writing about the revolving door of “Twilight” series directors. And a lot has also been written about the belief by some Twilighters that women filmmakers are better equipped to depict Stephenie Meyer’s tender love story between a vampire and a human. All this made it even more interesting when I interviewed Kellan Lutz recently, and he revealed that Summit did in fact have a filmmaker in their sights for “Eclipse” that wasn’t Drew Barrymore.
And to paraphrase Austin Powers: It was a man, baby!
“I actually heard rumors that they did have a third director, and he fell out, and then they saw more people,” Lutz said of the director for “Eclipse.” “I would say [the name] if I could remember it. But I know it was a guy.”
It’s no secret that “New Moon” director Chris Weitz won’t be directing the third “Twilight” movie – or that sometime around when this mysterious male director dropped out, Summit’s search considered Drew Barrymore.
Regardless, Lutz said the argument that only females should direct “Twilight” films is nonsense. “I don’t think there’s any difference between male or female directors, as far as who can relate,” insisted Lutz, who plans to have a pajama party at his apartment for friends on March 20th – the night that the “Twilight” DVD is being released at midnight. “There’s no big difference of who can do what, or who is better with romance. I did like how Catherine [Hardwicke] did ‘Twilight,’ because it is that Romeo and Juliet type of movie.”
Clearly, the mysterious male “Eclipse” director couldn’t have been a name in the class of Spielberg, Fincher, Del Toro or the like, since Lutz couldn’t recall his name. But still, it’s interesting that Summit is willing to continue with testosterone-driven helmers behind the camera – and now Twilighters everywhere will always wonder who that mysterious dropped-out dude was.
As long as drew barrymore doesnt direct ill be happy (:
