After this past weekend’s sold-out showings of Twilight, fans will have something new to look forward to: Summit Entertainment has announced that the studio is moving forward with a sequel to the teen vampire love story.

The movie, New Moon, will be based on author Stephenie Meyer’s second novel in the Twilight series. Meyer, who has no reservations about turning another novel into a silver screen drama, says, “I don’t think any other author has had a more positive experience with the makers of her movie adaptation than I have had with Summit Entertainment. I’m thrilled to have the chance to work with them again on New Moon.”

The sequel is currently slated for release in 2010.
