Izzy is geeking out.  I can’t wait for this movie.  You have no idea.

p.s. Thank GOD they’re recasting directors for Twilight.  I can’t even express my opinions for a) fear of 13 year old uber-fans (whose love for Robert “Edward” Patteson transcends common sense in what makes a good movie), b) the intense reactions I have are better left unsaid due to expletives and rantings in a semi-professional blog space 😉
