Little Ashes: Will Twilight's Pattinson Pull Women?

We know how women respond to Rob Pattinson as Edward Cullen in Twilight . I knew the second I saw the first teaser trailer that he was a new heartthrob. He's dishy. In IFC's on-demand release, the British micro-indie How to Be, he plays a depressed loser version of himself. Not a big reach. On the other hand, Pattinson stretches quite a bit as Salvador Dali in Little Ashes, a European art film with a cultural pedigree. Set in Spain, the movie throws together three brilliant young university students: painter Salvador Dali (Pattinson), poet/dramatist Federico Garcia Lorca (Javier Beltran) and filmmaker Luis Bunuel (Matthew McNulty). Garcia Lorca and Dali form a powerful bond that is sexual, but Dali can't handle it.

Summit Selling Twilight Star Pattinson Movie At Cannes

While the Rob Pattinson movies that are set to be released post-Twilight--Little Ashes and How to Be--are unlikely to reignite his passionate Twilight fan base, it's not surprising that Summit Entertainment would squeeze their new matinee idol into another romantic movie between Twilight installments that they could sell in Cannes.

Twilight Sequel Eclipse Adds Director Slade

Twilight's Hardwicke Stays with Summit

There's been a good deal of speculation and spin surrounding why Catherine Hardwicke--who by any measure delivered the goods on Twilight, the first installment of Stephenie Meyer's bestselling vampire series--did not return for the sequel, New Moon. Summit hired Chris Weitz (Golden Compass) instead. The truth is, Hardwicke's reps were negotiating a deal with Summit. The deal fell apart over the return of Hardwicke's first assistant director boyfriend to the picture. Summit wasn't willing to commit to him. That, coupled with other issues having to do with time and money--Hardwicke was burned out and wanted more time to prep the script and the movie--dive-bombed her shot at directing the sequel. (Hardwicke was not available to comment on this.) Nonetheless, Summit is making nice with Hardwicke, confirming that she's directing another young femme-targeted book adaptation, Gayle Forman's If I Stay, set to be published this spring.

Twilight DVD: Deleted Scenes

The reason there's so much heat around Twilight again (and New Moon--Summit finally announced Dakota Fanning's casting as Jane) is that the DVD is coming out March 21. Access Hollywood aired two deleted scenes from Twilight. Sometimes directors cut scenes from movies for a reason.

Twilight Watch: EW Previews Hardwicke Notebook

Entertainment Weekly is feeding the Twilight fan lust for NEW INFO about the book/movie phenom by running an excerpt of Catherine Hardwicke's Twilight: Director's Notebook, due in stores March 17. Here's ">an advance peek. Presumably, Hardwicke won't spill all the beans on why she's not directing the sequel (basically, she was fried, wanted to tinker with New Moon, and Summit passed the reins to Chris Weitz).
