With Twilight getting great numbers when it opened, it was a sure thing that the other books in the series will also get the movie treatment. In fact, the other books are now being put into development. Summit Entertainment has already acquired the rights to the next three novels of Stephenie Meyer’s vampire series. Melissa Rosenberg, who wrote the script for Twilight, has also been tasked to write the scripts for both New Moon and Eclipse.
Twilight, which will be directed by Catherine Hardwicke is based on the popular novels written by Stephenie Meyer. The movie stars Robert Pattinson (who played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) and Kristen Stewart.
Expect the girls to swoon over this movie when it opens on December 12.
