Interview with New Moon Director Chris Weitz

MTV has a new interview with New Moon director Chris Weitz, where he reveals more details on how the movie will differ from the perspective of the book–

MTV: Obviously, “New Moon” is written from the perspective of Bella. But Melissa Rosenberg recently told us about a scene with Victoria that gets away from Kristen’s point of view. Are there other moments like that?

Weitz: It’s from Bella’s point of view … but, for instance, when Alice has a vision of Edward about to commit suicide, we see her vision. To me, that’s fair — because, in the book, Alice conveys that immediately to Bella, and you can see Bella imagining what Alice is saying. At points where a reader of the book might logically imagine a scenario, it was OK for the filmmakers — me — to imagine seeing something that would be outside of Bella’s knowledge at that point. Or something that’s within the scope of her imagination. She fears the worst, really, in terms of Edward.
