Chris Weitz & Producers Visit Kalama High School

New Moon director Chris Weitz was in Oregon recently to visit Kalama High School. From The Daily News Online:

Film crews could return to Kalama High School this spring to shoot footage for a sequel to the hit teen-vampire flick "Twilight."

Several producers and director Chris Weitz ­- who didn't direct the original 'Twilight' - visited the school last week, said Kalama Superintendent Jim Sutton. The sequel is called "New Moon," the title of the second of four novels in the popular series by author Stephenie Meyer.

"The whole point of the trip was to show Chris Weitz all the locations they used up here in the Northwest," Sutton said.

The visit was short, and moviemakers didn't commit to filming at the school again, Sutton said. It's possible they shot enough footage during the filming of "Twilight" last spring to supply the sequel, he noted.

Could they be planning to shoot there or were they just trying to get a feel for the location?
