‘Twilight’ Sequel ‘New Moon’ To Start Filming In March

Twilight

Androgynous teen sensation Kristen Stewart was on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show recently chatting up her new movie, Twilight.  She spoke about her introduction to acting, fan obsession, and more. Seacrest also asked her for any information on Twilight‘s inevitable sequel, New Moon.

Hopefully we do get to make the second one. I mean we do get to make the second one, I don’t know what I’m talking about. I think it’ll probably be in March, and a lot of the movie takes place in Italy, and I think we’re actually going to get to go to Italy, which is so cool because for a while there, they were like, oh, we don’t have the money, but now I think we might have the money.”

Stewart didn’t say when Summit plans to release New Moon, but with filming starting in March they could possibly make a Christmas 2009 release date.  Stewart also spoke about how engaging the books are.  She says when you read them, you are the main character of Bella.  Our own Cole Abaius can attest to this same feeling. “You don’t get slapped in the face with a new plot-line every chapter. It’s a slow, progressive, very detailed account of a fixation.”  (Abaius can attest to that as well.)  Of course, she also claims Bella is a “good, strong, female character” which we all know is malarkey.  One thing Seacrest didn’t ask Stewart about is her reported $12 million payday for the sequel, an increase of $10 million from Twilight.  That’s a lot of Ziploc baggies and Cheetos for Miss Stewart… (see right)

Do you think Summit should aim for the holiday slot?  Or should they take their time and plan for a summer 2010 release?
