How much Robert Pattinson are we gonna see in NEW MOON?

GATW Guest Writer

July 2nd, 2009


For those TWILIGHTers out there that have read all the books, you already know that Robert Pattinson's role as Edward is lessened quite a bit in the second TWILIGHT installation, NEW MOON. In fact, the book has him almost absent altogether, outside of his voice that Bella hears in her head. This could spell a lot of trouble for tweens whose eyes pop out of their pretty little heads whenever Pattinson graces a scene.

According to actor Michael Welch (who plays Mike Newton, a rival for Bella's affection in the TWILIGHT series), director Chris Weitz and screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg foresaw this problem as well, and came up with what looks to be a valid solution.

"They figured out a very clever way to get Edward back in the film much more than he is in the book...It's tricky...I mean, (Edward) leaves for months...In the book, she just hears his voice...In the film, it's more of like a hallucination kind of thing. He will be (in the movie more than the book) for sure."

Do not worry, tween Pattinson peeps, the object of your prepubescent fantasies will still be lighting up the silver screen come November 20, when NEW MOON opens in theaters (he will also be lighting up my dreams. Whew, that big ol' forehead is sexy!).

    I don't know if I would classify this as a "very clever" plan, but hey, do what you can.

    This doesn't sound good.

    It is so lame of them to change the story line to include him more!! There is going to be so much Edward in the rest of the movies why can't they deal for New Moon – that's the point!

    You guys make a great point, and if Hollywood was more focused on good art, good stories, ect., instead of making ungodly amounts of money, than they would respect the original stories. Unfortunately, all they care about is selling tickets, and they know Patterson brings the tweens in by droves…
