Twilight Will Descend on a Theater Near You

From the Buzzworthy young adult novel challenge, I know many of you are huge fans of the Stephenie Meyer Twilight series, so this news might interest you. The first of the series will be adapted for film, directed by Catherine Hardwicke (writer/director of Thirteen), and will star Kristen Stewart (Into the Wild, In the Land of Women) in the lead role. Variety continues:

The film... centers on a 17-year-old girl who moves to a small town to live with her father and becomes drawn to a mysterious classmate who seems determined to push her away. Their unorthodox romance puts her in danger when his nemesis comes to town.

It's nice that they're going with a relative unknown for the lead role in this dark tale, and after seeing Into the Wild, I think Stewart appears to have the depth to play such an intriguing character. What do you think? Is this a good book-to-movie idea, or do you not want the novel possibly tarnished by a film adaptation?

i'd like Leighton Meester to be Bella Swan, too bad. oh well, let's all hope her performance will be good :)

I think Kristen is perfect for Bella. And like sweetpeabrina, I'm PRAYING the studios don't make a fantastic book into a horrendous movie like they did with Eragon. That seriously broke my heart.

ohmigod! I loove the series. I'm very hesitant about the movie, though. I saw how movie studios can butcher excellent books ie. Eragon. What if they do the same here? I think the magic of the Twilight series is that Stephenie Meyers writes these insane descriptions of the characters feelings to the point where you get wrapped up in it and feel those feelings too. The movie and the acting can not possibly live up to that! How can actress possibly portray the feelings that go with a kiss that was so amazing she stops breathing? Ack! I don't know if I want this movie!

I enjoyed the books...just hope that the movie does them justice. I like Kristen Stewart, she's pretty cool so that's a plus. (And yes, that's not a particularly good photo of her!)

"pretty formulaic." I think the basic description in NO way does the story justice I prefer the writers description 1st book is about finding true love 2nd book it is about losing that true love 3rd book is about choosing true love I know it may not give much more of an explanation but to me as you read it and FEEL it, these words ring so true The second book had me crying a few times

oh and I agree she does not look bella like but than maybe when it is done she may look more her I know that sounds odd but they may do the make up and hair different to make her more bella like

I absolutely can NOT wait for this movie to come out and I really hope they do a good job and cover all of them as I have been waiting for this since she said on her site it was in the works

ugh, i don't know i LOVE these books and was completely mesmorized by them. maybe because i have high standards for something i shouldn't but she doesn't look too bella-ish too me. maybe it's just a bad picture but her features look too strong and she doesn't look like a fragile person to me - she looks like she would rather be quicking some butt in another movie that failing into the arm of some guy.

I have read the Twilight series and loved them. It took me a week to read all three. I can't wait for the fourth book to come out next year. I was hoping they would make the book(s) into a move. Kristen Stewart has the look for the main character part. I would love to give details, but don't want to spoil it for others who haven't read the books. All I'll say is read Twilight first and if you enjoy it then go purchase the others. You won't be disappointed.
