The makers of Twilight, Summit Entertainment, has reportedly offered the sequel director job to Chris Weitz.
In addition to directing About a Boy, Weitz was also one of the producers of American Pie.
Hollywood insiders say Weitz scored the big job because he's super good friends with Summit's president of production, Eric Feig.
It's nice to have friends in high places!
Summit also reportedly liked the job he did directing The Golden Compass, that Nicole Kidman film no one saw.
You're taking on a dangerous job, Chris.
If you eff the movie up you'll have an army of teenage girls out for your blood.
