reports show that Catherine Hardwicke wasnt booted from directing New Moon, but that she declined it “after being offered a huge sum of money to come on board.” yeah, uh huh. sure.
according to the Associated Press, Hardwicke declined the offer due to time and budget constraints. why dont i believe her? as i recall, she did Twilight with the same “tight deadline and modest budget” (and real talk, it didnt hold a candle to the book AT ALL).
in my opinion, Summit is better off with the new director, Chris Weitz. whats ur thoughts?
