News Round-Up: January 15

MTV has more about Jackson Rathbone and his recent concert with his band, 100 Monkeys. Click here.

BellaandEdward.com finally has photos of the Inkworks Twilight Trading Cards Pieceworks set in their gallery.

The Hollywood Reporter has a very revealing interview with Summit Entertainment bigwigs Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger. The duo talked about how Twilight has changed the company, as well as more details about Summit and their projects. They also made clarifications about the Catherine Hardwicke issue. We also finally have confirmation that the budget for New Moon is bigger than Twilight's:

THR: Will "New Moon" stay in the same $38 million budget range?

Friedman: No. The next one will be higher than that. We believe that the film will naturally be more expensive. Sequels become more expensive, and we have more special effects.

Wachsberger: And locations. In the second movie there is a sequence in Italy.

THR: There is talk that because Edward is out of the picture for much of "New Moon," there will be elements of the second and third books combined into the second movie.

Wachsberger: No, but Edward is present for the movie.

The budget is bigger, but don't expect New Moon and the rest of the Twilight Saga to turn into mega-budget blockbusters just yet. Later in the interview, Rob Friedman said:

Friedman: Are we gonna be in the $100 million-plus production business? No.


Oh well....

    Any idea where I could buy the cards? Will Filbar's or Comic Quest have them?

    @lexaprone:

    I was thinking about the same thing too. I'm not really a trading card person but this I'd love to collect. On the Inkworks website, there's even an album for the cards. It's gorgeous!

    LEXAPRONE-
    I haven't seen the cards locally, actually. I've been on the look-out for them for a while now, although I haven't really exerted much effort to get some info (e.g. use my connections, hehe) But I'll ask around.

    Rome and CDL: Dati kasi I would buy X-Men and NBA cards from those geeky shops in Greenhills, way before it became a cellphone hub.
    Hindi nako nagagawi dun. Pag complete set talaga ang binili mo ang daming extras! I hope it's the same with the Inkworks cards. Whoever finds 'em first, just holler!:)
