You have to remember that the movie and book are two different things. Yes one is based off the other but Chris Weitz is the director, not the screenwriter. You shouldn’t look at it as if he wrote the movie. I think that if he is the right man for the job then he should have a chance to prove that he can direct good movies. He is obviously qualified otherwise Summit would not have offered the job to him in the first place.

The special effects on golden compass was a lot better that twilight.

It would totally stink. Wouldn’t it be awesome if they could get Catherine Hardwicke back? But since Summit is not going to get her back they should get Peter Jackson. I know it’s impossible, but I can always dream.

I loved the Compass books and was so excited about the movie! The movie was horrible! Surely they can find someone better.

I have seen the Golden Compass and About A Boy and let me tell ya they were both sleepers. It completely lacked DIRECTION!!! Nicole Kidman might have done her best in the movie but an actor is only as good the script they are given and the person directing the piece. I am praying that this is a rumor and that Summit continues to look for a new director.

There were forums everywhere asking then to please recast and blah….blah….blah….

There is never going to anything good enough to satisy everyone. I know of a whole lot of people that loved “The Golden Compass” .
Unless we want this move coming out looking like some really bad 80’s “B” movie, then it is going to need a major overhaul. The werewolves are a pinnacle part of the book, and unless it is done right, it will ruin the whole movie.
We know he can do it…. look at The Golden Compass. The graphics were completely amazing.
If this is done correctly, it will be an even bigger hit than Twilight.

We have totally proven that we the fans alone can make a movie big a box office hit. We control the movie’s outcome in a huge way. That means give us what we want and I know alot of us want to have a little bit more Edward in the story and make Jacob more likeable. (That is only what I know about people who live in Portland Oregon. We are a bit cazyer when it comes to the movies because we have been to all of the places they have fimed at. We are a bit more likly to like the movies than other areas)

I read the series (the 3rd one made me angry!!!) and enjoyed them (except for the 3rd one!) The movie was pretty good but the CGI was awesome I thought! Iorek Byrnison (who is my fave character!) looked amazing! (He is the big polar bear!)

It also bombed in the box office. I was reading an article about how Twilight needed a female director, just something about females being better able to adapt the book into a movie. I totally agree. Catherine did an amazing job. Im worried that because Rob and Kristen are mad about this, they may not stay on for Breaking Dawn.
