Just before the dawn of the DVD, Twilight fans can get a dose of life on the set with Robert Pattinson (swoon).
Little, Brown and Company is releasing Twilight: Director’s Notebook, by Catherine Hardwicke, on March 17.
The book follows the director’s creative process throughout the making of the Pattz and Kristen Stewart blockbuster based on Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling series. The tome is designed to replicate the notebook she kept on set.
“With this book, I tried to show fans and future directors some of the process that the crew and I went through filming Twilight,” Hardwicke says. “My challenge was to translate Stephenie’s powerful book and make you feel what she makes you feel when you read her works.”
The publishing house promises the inside secrets on casting, location scouting, wardrobe and storyboard sketches, and behind-the-scenes photographs.
The book’s launch comes only four days before the March 21 release of the Twilight DVD. The film’s sequel, New Moon, is scheduled for a Nov. 20, 2009, theatrical release, although Hardwicke will not be at the helm. Instead, Golden Compass director Chris Weitz will be taking the lead.
