Last week I ran excerpts from Larry Carroll's interview with "American Pie" director Paul Weitz, who is currently wrapping up work on his next project, "Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant." Weitz has a brother who knows a little something about vampires too, first name Chris. Maybe you've heard of him. He's wrapping up work right now too, on the soon-to-release "Twilight" follow-up, "New Moon."
When MTV's Josh Horowitz sat down with Chris at San Diego Comic-Con a few weeks ago, he had to mine for additional details on Weitz's treatment of Edward Cullen in the sequel. See, Edward doesn't factor very heavily into "New Moon," but Robert Pattinson has become something of a superstar. So how, specifically, will Weitz feature his top talent as a star in the sequel when he isn't really supposed to be there for much of it?
"You'll see quite a lot of Rob in the film, but it's seen subjectively, through Bella's eyes," Weitz said. "It's also in dreams that she has of him as well. It strikes this very fine balance between too much Rob and too little Rob." There's no such thing, Josh replied. The fans have spoken loudly and clearly: they love RPattz.
"Well, I know for a lot of people there's no such thing as too much Rob. But we've got a nice dose of Taylor [Lautner] to sweeten any Rob deficiencies," Weitz replied. "It is a disease that can only be treated with Vitamin T, for Taylor." Check out the rest of the interview over at MTV.com!
