The Golden Compass director released the following statement, regarding the decision to help this wildly-anticipated sequel:

“I am honored to have been entrusted with shepherding New Moon from the page to the screen. The extraordinary world that [author Stephenie Meyer] has created has millions of fans, and it will be my duty to protect on their behalf the characters, themes and story they love. This is not a task to be taken lightly, and I will put every effort into realizing a beautiful film to stand alongside a beautiful book.”
