Chris Weitz Spills New Moon Details

Jul 16th, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News

Rotten Tomatoes has a great new interview with director Chris Weitz, who discusses details about New Moon, including the soundtrack, special effects, and the proposal!

Chris on the New Moon soundtrack:

“Fortunately, I’m not at the stage where I have to turn anybody down yet, because everything is still kind of up in the air,” Weitz shared, “but I am surprised at some of the bands that have said they’re interested. It’s kind of great. The criterion will still always be what’s right for the movie at that given moment, but Thom Yorke is interested; we might, if we’re very lucky, get Kings of Leon to do something… it’s exciting to be able to have access to this kind of talent.”

Special effects:

“I am about two weeks away from showing my director’s cut to the studio,” Weitz told us. “I’ve got some wolves with fur, and some wolves are still invisible, basically. And some wolves are kind of like…what look like Claymation versions. We are still in the late R&D phases of what Edward looks like when he’s hit by sunlight, what the vampires look like when they’re hit with sunlight, the diamond effect, and also the hallucinatory effect that Bella has when she hears Edward’s voice and she imagines him there.”

HitFix also interviewed Chris here!  Much of it is a repeat of the above interview, but in this one, the director states that a couple of scenes from New Moon will be shown at Comic-Con!
