Weitz Follows “New Moon” With “Gardener”

Chris Weitz has announced that his first film post-“The Twilight Saga: New Moon” will be “The Gardener” for Summit Entertainment reports Variety.

Eric Eason’s script follows a hard-working Mexican gardener who lives in Los Angeles and his efforts to protect his son. Filming kicks off in March or April.

Weitz also dispels recent rumors of his early retirement, saying the quote was lifted from an interview he did after “The Golden Compass” on which he got a rough treatment from the studio. He says however he’s been reinvigorated by the work on “New Moon”.
