Nov 12,2008 interview
MTV: I love that the apple-in-hands shot has been worked into the film. Who came up with that idea?
Hardwicke: I came up with that. I love the book cover, and I thought, "What if we just sneak it in, like a two-second flash?" But now it's in the trailer, so I think everybody knows. But, yeah, I like that. I love apples.
Hardwicke: Oh, yeah. It's been really interesting, because I felt like each of them were incredibly talented. Now, the world's gonna get to see it too!
MTV: Obviously, someday there will be a "Twilight" DVD we'll all want to buy. Do you have any details yet that you could share?
Hardwicke: Oh, yeah, we've already put together all of the deleted scenes and extended scenes. I think there's about 10 or 12 pretty cool things that people are going to like. And then I made a montage of all the other scenes that didn't quite make it in, of vampire bites and sexy, crazy stuff. And then I put all of the human kids [into another montage]. They did a lot of crazy things, so you'll see all that stuff too. There's a pretty neat video that we made that goes with the Jason Bentley remix, and that's very intense and beautiful. So I think there's going to be some delicious things. But, of course, there's also the "making-of," talking about how we really figured out every scene. It's gonna be pretty good.
