    Chris Weitz Bringing His Own Style To Twilight Sequel New Moon Says Peter Facinelli
    By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
    May 5, 2009

    The highly anticipated sequel to "Twilight" is now before the cameras -- with Chris Weitz ("American Pie," "The Golden Compass") directing instead of the original film's director, Catherine Hardwicke. So, will "New Moon" be a whole new kind of movie? "I don't think Chris is going to try to mimic the first one at all," says Peter Facinelli -- the sympathetic, astonishingly youthful, 300-year-old patriarch of the good vampire clan, Carlisle Cullen, to fans of the blockbuster.

    "He has his own taste. He's an artist. You can't ask an artist to come along and paint the same picture," he notes. "But they can paint the same subject and put their own artistic integrity into it."

    Hardwicke, notes Peter, "is very passionate, and it's almost like this wild interior decorator coming in and saying, 'We're going to do this! We're going to do that!' and it's very infectious. Everyone gets caught up in it.

    "Chris is very laid back. He looks at everything carefully. He's very intelligent, a calming presence even if there's a stressful situation around. I told him he reminds me of Carlisle Cullen."

    Facinelli's in the midst of a two-week break before he goes back to the "New Moon" set to complete his last two days of work. However, he's already anticipating getting back into his Carlisle groove "later this year, in August. We're going to be doing the third one ("Eclipse"). David Slade, who did 'Hard Candy' is going to be directing" -- and bringing in his own vision.

    MEANWHILE: Facinelli has a full plate even without "New Moon" and "Eclipse." The actor, who has 12-, 6- and 2-year-old daughters with wife Jennie Garth, also has Showtime's very, very (END ITAL) on-the-edge "Nurse Jackie" series -- with Edie Falco as a pill-popping, adulterous nurse -- which debuts June 8 on the cable network with an online debut preceding. And he's getting ready to produce "Loosies" from his own script, hoping to squeeze production in before "Eclipse." He tells us, "It's about a pickpocket in New York, this fast, loose Steve McQueen type who ends up getting a girl pregnant and having his world turn upside down. I'll play the lead in it, and Michael Corrente, who did 'Outside Providence,' is directing."
