The "Twilight" sequel: werewolves and heartbreak

The release of "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" is less than a month away, but getting plot details from its director, Chris Weitz, took a little prodding when I caught up with him Monday night at the Hollywood Film Festival Awards Gala.

Sooo... what can you tell us about "New Moon?"

"Uhh... it's about a girl who likes this vampire," he quips.

Oh, c'mon...

"Every time I give away a secret I get in terrible trouble. So I can't really tell you anything. I'm only allowed to say boring things about it. It will not disappoint - something like that."

So it will be similar in tone to the first film?

"No. I think it will be a lot darker and also in some ways more epic because we traveled to Italy, there's a lot more action, and there are werewolves - we didn't have those in the first one. So there's a lot of grandeur to it.  There's also the satisfaction of watching a young woman's heart get broken into a million pieces."

That's always fun.

"Yeah, I enjoyed that very much," he says with a grin.
