“Twilight” sequel “New Moon” has landed its first overseas sale, to Italy, where the Chris Weitz-helmed vampire romancer is partly set.
Eagle Pictures, which released “Twilight” locally, announced on Tuesday that it has reupped with Summit Entertainment for the sequel, which will shoot in the ancient Tuscan city of Volterra for two weeks in May.
In Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling “New Moon,” Volterra is the town where the powerful Volturi vampire coven resides.Shooting on the pic begins in Vancouver in March, with “Twilight” stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart reprising their roles.
Eagle Pictures, which is owned by Tunisian mogul Tarak Ben Ammar and has close ties with Summit, announced that “New Moon” will be released in Italy on Nov. 20, day-and-date with its Stateside release.
“Twilight” took $15 million in Italy, making it the country’s ninth highest grosser in 2008, after “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” and ahead of Matteo Garrone’s “Gomorrah.”
To date, “Twilight” has grossed more than $350 million worldwide.
OMG!!!!!!!! I havfe a sudden knew faith in CW (that's right, Chris Witz is now named after my favorite TV channel). Maybe ity's because Taylor is back, the whol ecast is back and IT'S GONNA BE REALLY AWESOME!
Now to some fairly bad news...
The resurrected rumor of a merger between Lionsgate films and Summit Entertainment has executives from both companies declining to comment. This has not stopped wide spread conjecture for what the merger could do for both companies and what changes it could mean to Twilight Saga films. Many blogs and sites, including Filmschoolrejects.com are wondering if the rumored merger will make the Twilight movies a little gorier. Lionsgate Films, which owns the “Saw” franchise, has a history of very gory movies. Neil Miller of Filmschoolrejects.com had this to say on the subject:
" I don’t see the logic in Lionsgate taking the reigns and running the franchise away from its primarily female, largely young fanbase."
WHAT THE HALE...
NONONONOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! U can't change Catherine AND the frickin' studio!
If Lionsgate buys the Twilighht franchise I WILL set the Volturi on them.
NEW MOON TEASER ON THE BLU-RAY! AAAHHHHH!!!!!

I found this really cool picture!
I know I haven't updated my blog in a long time, deal with it.
