Twilight : Director's Notebook

February 13, 2009

Twilighters in need of a fix before Stephenie Meyer’s blockbuster sequel New Moon arrives in theaters thought they needed to wait until March 27 to see Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart again. That’s the day their new movies open: Little Ashes (Rob’s, a Salvador Dalí biopic) and Adventureland (Kristen’s, an ’80s comedy.) But it turns out fans can see their Twilight favorites much sooner. On March 17 Little, Brown will publish the detailed on-set journal that Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke kept throughout filming.

Hardwicke has given EW an exclusive first peek at Twilight: Director’s Notebook, which looks less like a diary than a scrapbook, studded with drawings, makeup and wardrobe notes, storyboards, lists, sketches, photos, and all kinds of odd nuggets of information (did you know Rob was first tricked out with hair extensions to give him his trademark look)? Hardwicke's publisher will only allow us to put two pages online, so to see the rest, you’ll have to pick up a copy of the Feb. 20 issue of EW, available here.

Hardwicke told EW that although she was “devastated” to not be directing New Moon—“I really did feel a strong connection to Stephenie and the actors” —she simply couldn’t do it under the terms Summit set forth, with a limited budget and strict timetable. The book is her smart, funny farewell, its margins full of her doodlings and ideas.

But the book isn’t the only thing fans have to look forward to. They’ll also be able to snap up the Twilight DVD on March 21. Its bonus materials, Hardwicke told EW, will include makeout scenes deleted from the movie.
