New Moon Director Promises Eclipse Will Be 'Steamy'

Team Jacob, hold on to your sleeping bags.

Chris Weitz, who directed New Moon, the second installment in the Twilight series, says he has read the script for this summer's third installment, Eclipse – and that one scene in particular is a scorcher.

"I'm looking forward to the sleeping bag scene, I gotta say," Weitz tells PEOPLE. "That's going to be very steamy."

In Eclipse's fan-favorite "tent scene," – spoiler alert! – a freezing Bella, who is on the run from evil vamp Victoria, gets a warm-up from werewolf Jacob when he squeezes into her sleeping bag – while a jealous Edward looks on. The movie will open June 30.

Weitz also says he is eager to see Edward's vampire "parents," played by Elizabeth Reaser and Peter Facinelli, sink their teeth into Eclipse's more intense action.

Chris Weitz, the Oscar-nominated director of New Moon, will leave all the glitz and glamour behind after he finishes one more film, he tells MovieMaker magazine.

"Every time I make a movie I'm pretty much convinced it's the last time I'm going to be able to do it and that really it's a rather silly occupation to undertake," says Weitz, 40, whose Oscar nod was for the adapted screenplay of 2002's About a Boy. "But I think I have maybe one more film in me."

Chris and Paul Weitz, the two brothers behind the smash sophomoric summer picture "American Pie," are bringing their wild brand of comedy to the small screen, reports Variety. They have snagged a series commitment from the WB Network. In a move indicating its desire to become a serious sitcom player, the WB (as the network calls itself) has shelled out a high six-figure sum for 13 episodes of a comedy to be written and executive-produced by the Weitzes. (The WB is owned and operated by Time Warner, the parent corporation of PEOPLE.)
