Catherine Hardwicke "thankful" she walked away from New Moon

She denies Summit Entertainment “fired” her: “In my contract, I had the first right of refusal.”

In a new Newsweek profile, Catherine Hardwicke (whose vamped up version of Little Red Riding Hood hit screens March 11)  says she has no regrets about walking away from the mega-successful Twilight franchise and dismisses a blog report that Summit Entertainment fired her.

“I couldn’t even be fired, that’s what’s so funny,” she says. “In my contract, I had the first right of refusal.” 
She says she said no to New Moon, the film’s second installment, because the studio wanted to rush it out.  “I do not regret it at all, thank the Lord,” she says. “The truth is I liked the first book the best.”

i doubt that . twilight the book had A LOT in it &she re-created it until like a movie she inspired &wrote . there were only a few things from the book that made it to the movie . after twilight the movies started to go up and the best was Eclipse . david slade really made it A LOT like the book .

What can I say? It was Twilight the movie what brought me into the Twilight world, and she must have done something right to get me so deep into the story.

I only have a couple of things I don't like about Twilight

1) The vampire running sucks, but that has nothing to do with her, I mean she did the best she could with a very low budget.

2) I hate they made Robert pluck his eyebrows! When he walked in the cafeteria I was like, drooling, then I noticed the eyebrows, and that is something I don't like.

I think it is great that there have been different directors for each movie; it brings something different to each movie.  Catherine did an awesome job casting for would not be what it is today without Rob, Kristen and Taylor.  With a small budget she did amazing.  I don't know how to accurately describe the mood of the movie except that it seemed cold and distant but that is what made it so good. I still love watching Twilight; Catherine did a great job and I think she deserves gratitude from fans (like me) that just love anything Twilight.

She would ruined New Moon. I'm sorry but Twilight was the worse of the movies.

Catherine did an amazing job with twilight or we wouldn't be looking forward to BD right now.

Twilight is filmed so different from others and that's the reason it appeals so much.

It had to be mysterious and dangerous and she did bring that to the screen.

And come on, admit that she filmed the most passionate and heartratequickening kiss for us.

We have so much to be thankful for. Thanks Catherine

I love Catherine and my daughter is working on her first film now and I hope as an actress she will have the priviledge to be directed by her.  She seemed to be in control of the situation of Kristen and Rob and I would want that for my daughter.
