Good news about New Moon from director Chris Weitz:

I’d just like to add that I was very much a part of this decision.

My first priority was always what was best for New Moon—what was going

to give us the best possible movie. I’m truly thrilled that Taylor was

the one who proved to the director, to Summit, and to me that he is the

best possible Jacob we could have. And I’m very much looking forward to

seeing what he’s going to bring to Jacob’s character this year.
