Hollywood.com had a chance to interview Chris Weitz, Ashley Greene and Melissa Rosenberg this weekend at Comic-Con.
We know the characters are close to people’s hearts, but Kristen and Robert have become true superstars, what do you think is the secret of their appeal?
Rosenberg: Personally for me, it’s how genuine they both are. They’re both very authentic people; that comes across on the screen.
Greene: They have great chemistry.
Rosenberg: They’re chemistry is incredible together, I mean visually as well. I think that sets them apart.
How much of a cool toy box do you inherit with a sequel to a Twilight movie, with the previous film or from the source material?
Weitz: I inherited a wonderful cast. It was really the main appeal to me, because when I was offered the film I hadn’t read the book yet. And I read the book I realized there were these kind of deeper undercurrents, and longing and romance to it. I inherit a huge fanbase, which is incredible for a director, because you know people are going to go see your movie. That’s the whole thing you worry about when you’re making a film in the first place. It’s so expensive to make a film. You work so hard; you make other people work so hard. Knowing that people are going to go see it is tremendously refreshing.
I think this is my favorite question and answer from this interview-
Have you made any changes to the vampire makeup you saw in the first movie?
Weitz: There’s more consistency between shots, if I were to be just coldblooded about it.The Volturi have a slightly different look, because they’re a different breed of vampire altogether. The diamond skin we’re remaking. It’s gonna be groovy.
