Blood Suckers: We made our own wishlist for who Summit should pick to helm the next Twilight sequel, but it looks like the fledgling studio had other plans. Bucking murmurs that a female director ought to be picked (and a fanboy consensus that the Summit-friendly Kathryn Bigelow should be offered the job), Nikki Finke reports that an offer has been made to Chris Weitz, who's friends with Summit's head of production. Weitz's last film was the enormous bomb The Golden Compass, a film he developed then departed from when he decided he couldn't handle an effects-heavy film of such scope. He changed his mind and eventually came back to Compass, though the finished flop killed what was intended to be a huge, youth-friendly franchise. That should work out well, then!
