Moviemaker Chris Weitz has promised to stay true to the original story while shooting the sequel to hit vampire film TWILIGHT - because he doesn't want to enrage loyal fans.
The director was taken on to helm New Moon, the follow up to the bloodsucking blockbuster, in place of Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke.
And Stephenie Meyer, who wrote the Twilight series of books, insists there is no need for fans to turn on Weitz with "torches and pitchforks" because he will not be changing the plot.
Writing on her official website, she tells fans: "I've had the chance to talk to Chris, and I can tell you that he is excited by the story and eager to keep the movie as close to the book as possible.
"He is also very aware of you, the fans, and wants to keep you all extremely happy. (Torches and pitchforks are not going to be necessary)."
She adds: "I'm excited to work with Chris and I think he brings a lot to the table... I'm really looking forward to seeing his vision for New Moon."
And Weitz confirms his intentions: "I will devote myself to making the very best and most faithful version of New Moon that can be brought to the screen."
