Cash Cow

Catherine Hardwicke found another way to cash in on the movie franchise she lost. Hardwicke’s book, Twilight: Director’s Notebook, will be published just days before the DVD release of Twilight. The story and details are here.

There is little to recommend Hardwicke’s work as a director on this film (I haven’t seen her other films), so I’m not sure why a film enthusiast is supposed to care about this book. This leaves me to guess that this book is being marketed to Twilight fangirls. And I think they will be disappointed. I can’t imagine this book having more eye candy than the Complete Illustrated Movie Companion.

If I were a fangirl, I’d save my $18 in favor of supporting the original creator and buy Meyer’s Twilight Saga: the Official Guide when it is released. If I were a smart fangirl, I’d submit a request at my public library and get on the hold list.
