‘Twilight’ Director Catherine Hardwicke Talks ‘Love Letters to the Dead’ Movie Adaptation

“Twilight” film director, Catherine Hardwicke is in early talks to direct the movie adaption of Ava Dellaira’s book, “Love Letters to the Dead.”

If everything goes well, the 59-year-old American director will reunite with her “Twilight” producers Temple Hill Entertainment. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first “Twilight” film premiered in 2008 and grossed over $3.3 billion worldwide and we think that with “Love Letter to the Dead,” Caterine will again try to break box-office records.


“Love Letters to the Dead” follows the story of Laurel who for an English class assignment writes a letter to Kurt Cobain. Soon, she starts writing letters to all the famous dead people including, Jains Joplin, Amy Winehouse, and Heath Ledger. In these letters she goes on a journey to find the reality of her life and her own dead sister May.
Caterine Hardwicke recently worked as the director for 2013s “Plush,” and “Reckless.” Her upcoming film, “Miss You Already” will star Drew Barrymore in the lead role.

“Love Letters to the Dead” is penned by Dellairia herself and the film will be released by Fox 2000 but apparently there is no official statement from the director or from the studios regarding the casting and the dates of shooting.

Most Young Adult fiction novels feels like they are specific for young audiences but Ava Dellaira’s use of famous people from the history in “Love Letters to the Dead” feels like that the story has a broader target audience. We are interested to see what Caterine Hardwicke does with this kind of material. Have you got a chance to read the book? Are you interested in this movie? Tell us in the comments below:
