New Moon Director Wants Fans to Cry

Director Chris Weitz is passionate about his latest project, New Moon. And he wants fans to really feel the emotion in the movie when it comes out in theaters next month.

Weitz told People, "We've tried our best to deliver on the romantic scenes in the film, and I would like to be able to produce more tears than any movie before, if possible. If we could only weigh them with some kind of cubic tear measure!"

Chris also talked about how everyone’s lives have changed drastically from shooting Twilight to now New Moon. Referring to Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, he says, "What I've realized is that they have a very tough job – not just playing the characters that they play, but living lives that are now very much under scrutiny all the time."

"To be honest, even making the movie is under a tremendous amount of scrutiny now, so that when the cast went back to Vancouver there were cameras everywhere," he said. "Everyone knows where every set is going to be. It goes with the Internet and all the information is out there all the time, and whenever one of them is spotted it's immediately Twittered."

Despite living under the media spotlight, Weitz thinks his leading men and lady are doing just fine. "I think that they handle it very well really. They're smart kids – I can say that because I'm 40 – and they've got good heads on their shoulders. So they'll be all right."

We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to cry on November 20th when New Moon hits theaters!
