A New Moon Release Date!

Summit Entertainment has announced plans to get “Twilight” sequel “New Moon” in theaters on Nov. 20th, 2009, with Chris Weitz signed to replace Catherine Hardwicke in the director’s chair.

Variety reports the studio is hoping the November release will help “New Moon” reap the same Thanksgiving success that “Twilight” enjoyed – which is a formula Warner Bros. had followed with its “Harry Potter” films before shifting the franchise to a summer release.

“New Moon” is the next installment in Stephenie Meyer's bestselling "Twilight" series – which features four novels. “Twilight” is still heating up the box office and has earned an estimated $150 million domestically in just four weeks.
