Greetings Twihards, Twifans, Twilight Moms, Team Edward, Team Jacob and Team Switzerland,
I just want to say hello to all of you and let you know that I'm stoked to be getting underway on the adventure of making BREAKING DAWN. As you've probably heard, I've been given a very warm welcome by Stephenie and Team Summit - who are super-focused, as you know, on getting these movies right.
I'm pretty busy bringing myself up to speed on what you already know by heart: I've read BREAKING DAWN twice, rewatched Catherine's and Chris's movies 2-3 times each, have all four CDs playing in my car, and have Catherine's notebook, Mark Cotta Vaz's companion books, and even Volume 1 of the graphic novel here on my desk - a corner of my office is starting to look like Hot Topic. I realize that this barely qualifies me for "newborn" status in the universe you've been living inside for a few years now, but a guy's gotta start somewhere.
Like many of you, I've always been slightly obsessed with vampires, dating back to the prime-time series DARK SHADOWS, which I followed avidly as a kid. But that alone hadn't been enough to get me interested in making a vampire movie, even though my early screenwriting and directing efforts grew out of a great love for horror movies and thrillers. Since making GODS AND MONSTERS thirteen years ago, however, I've been yearning for a return to a story with Gothic overtones.
The wonderful world that Stephenie has created has obviously struck a chord with you, and I don't think it's difficult to see why. For me, her characters are simultaneously timeless, yet very modern. Rooted in a beautiful, real landscape with a great sense of place, Bella, Edward, Jacob, and the rest of the Forks/La Push menagerie, experience emotions that are primal, and universal: desire, despair, jealousy - and it all comes to fruition in BREAKING DAWN. This is a final chapter in the best sense; not just wide in scope and scale, but emotionally charged and intense throughout.
I'm a huge admirer of the already-iconic Kristen, Robert, and Taylor, and wanted to be the one to work with them as they face the challenges of bringing your beloved characters to the end of their journeys. Really, what could be more fun than that?
Please feel free to ask questions in the comments section below, and I'll do my best to answer them. I hope that this will be the first of many occasions I'll get to check in with you as we set to work bringing BREAKING DAWN to the screen. I am excited and grateful to have all of you alongside me for my TWILIGHT journey.
P.S. Answer #1: No, there won't be any musical numbers
“I can confirm that R Patz [sic] has been a HUGE hit this weekend since joining the A list party at Madame Tussauds – in fact more people bought a picture of him than The Queen and Barack Obama put together!!” says the PR staff of the famous museum only weeks after the display was put in.
However over the last weekend, the museum was actually jammed – still – with Twilight fans. In an orderly line people had to wait to see the actor, take a picture and run their fingers through his hair.
Kellan Lutz (aka Emmett Cullen) is in the upcoming horror remake A Nightmare On Elm Street. Super Scream 4 has a great interview with Kellan about his new horror flick. Nightmare on Elm St is in theaters April 30th, 2010.

Translation of the article talking About Rob:
"Constante highlighted spot of comments about her relationship with Robert Pattinson, Kristen understands the interest of fans in her personal life, but limited talking about her relationship: "I'll always keep what's important only for me. I understand people wanting to know about us since we're a couple in fiction and they cheer for us being together."

At least that's the case for the Cullen brood.
In "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," which hits theaters June 30, Seattle is ravaged by a series of killings caused by an army of newborn vampires controlled by revenge-seeking bloodsucker Victoria. To combat the threat against Bella ( Kristen Stewart) in this third installment of the franchise, the Cullens must band together and join forces with their sworn enemies, the wolf pack.
"The whole family is in a vulnerable position because of the love we have for Bella," said Elizabeth Reaser, who plays matriarch Esme Cullen. "If she's not OK, we're not OK."
In the past, we've seen the clan hit baseballs so hard that they can play only in a thunder storm, to block out the sound. And we've watched the buttoned-up human imposters welcome Bella into their home as the human girlfriend of one of their own — the handsome Edward.
"This time around, you get to see their true vampire-ness," said Peter Facinelli, who plays head vampire Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the series based on the bestselling books by Stephenie Meyer.
What can we expect from the pale-faced Cullen family (which includes the Hale siblings) this go around? Here's what the actors say audiences can expect from the story and their characters:
Robert Pattinson (as Edward Cullen): Snagging a phone interview with the brooding dreamboat — who was overseas shooting his latest film, "Bel Ami" — proved difficult. So what can we expect from the lovesick Edward? He promises to love Bella "every moment of forever," as the trailer reveals. He's still hesitant about her becoming a vampire. He's determined to protect her from Victoria. And he's vying with Jacob for her affections. Oh, the life of an antique teenage vampire.

But the 88-year-old actress says she should write to the 23-year-old Brit for reportedly calling her the sexiest woman in the US.
'I should write him a thank you note,' White tells the New York Post.
When asked if she would do a nude scene with the heart-throb though, White squashed the idea.
'No, sorry. I wouldn't,' she says. 'There really isn't much spare time these days.'
TV veteran White will guest host US TV show Saturday Night Live on May 8 after fans launched an internet campaign requesting that she appear.
'I don't understand it all,' White says. 'I'm the luckiest old broad on two feet.'
White, who co-starred alongside Sandra Bullock in The Proposal last year, is in hot demand of late, despite nearing 90.
The Saturday Night Live guest spot is just the latest in a string of recent projects that includes her new TV series Hot In Cleveland.
Speaking about her upcoming schedule she says: 'I do the show Saturday night. Sunday I fly back to California and Monday I start the new series I'm doing for TV Land.'
The demanding commitments won't slow her down though, White insists.
'I think energy builds on energy,' she says. 'I love the business I'm in and the more you do, the more it works.'
BooBoo Stewart plays werewolf Seth Clearwater in the upcoming third Twilight film, Eclipse, and recently shared some spoilers about the anticipated film, set for release on June 30.
The film also sees the return of the love triangle made up of Robert Pattinson as the vampire Edward, Kristen Stewart as his mortal love Bella and Taylor Lautner as the werewolf Jacob. Find out what happens in Eclipse and also watch a recent new trailer for the film!
BooBoo, 16, said that in Eclipse, Clearwater "helps defeat Riley, which is really the strong newborn vampire ... and the big battle in the end, which is awesome - I get to rip someone's arm off."
The actor made his comments to On The Red Carpet's Chris Balish at the recent premiere for the movie remake of thriller A Nightmare on Elm Streetin Los Angeles.
Eclipse, BooBoo said, will also probably appeal to more than just the vampire franchise's predominantly female fanbase.
"Now there's going to be action so now the 'Twilight' fans - they all have their boyfriends and stuff, so now they're going to really like it even more."
