'Twilight' being adapted to film

December 04, 2007|By BRIGITTE GREWE / Pulse Contributor

Summit Entertainment has taken the role of turning the best-selling teen novel "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer into a movie.

"Twilight" is the suspenseful story of a girl and a vampire who fall in love. The book will be a great hit as a movie. At least, it should be. The book has been hugely popular among teen readers, with two sequels - "New Moon" and "Eclipse."

"Twilight" is about Isabella Swan, a teenager who moves to rainy, small-town Forks, Wash., from sunny, big-city Arizona to live with her dad. Bella meets an astonishing boy named Edward, and they fall in love. But many troubles come between them, especially when you have a human-vampire relationship.

"Twilight" is currently in preproduction mode. Filming should start in February. According to reports at Meyer's Web site, producers Karen Rosenfelt, Mark Morgan and Greg Mooradian and director Catherine Hardwicke are aiming to bring "Twilight" to theaters next fall.

Summit has already chosen the first member of the "Twilight" cast. On Nov. 16, actress Kristen Stewart was chosen to play the part of Isabella Swan in the movie. Previously, Kristen had roles in "Panic Room," "Zathura," "The Messenger" and "Into the Wild."

Check out Stephenie Meyer's Web site at www.stepheniemeyer.com/index.html for more details about Kristen.

Meyer seems confident that her book has fallen into good production hands and that Summit Entertainment won't fail her or her readers. Many fans of the "Twilight" series have written Meyer to say they're worried the movie will be jumbled or told differently from the book. But the author says that the book will be adapted into a good movie.

So be on your toes for the release of "Twilight" next year.
