Taylor Lautner Confirmed for Twilight Sequel

Great news for all you Twilight fans, Taylor Lautner, who played Jacob Black in first movie will be returning for the sequel of the popular book.

"It was my first instinct that Taylor was, is, and should be Jacob," New Moon director Chris Weitz announced in a statement.

"I think that fans of Twilight the book and the movie will be surprised by the Jacob Black that Taylor will bring to the screen in New Moon; and I'm looking forward to working with him and the rest of the cast in realizing the film."

New Moon has been getting some heat because fans wanted original Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke to return for the sequel.

Are you just as excited for New Moon as you were for Twilight? Do you think new director Chris Weitz will deliver?
