    @mr-k I like Lords of Dogtown, she did a frenzy of crazy-cool board action and The Nativity Story was decent. She might put out that cool-groovy style to this film, that will be good or bad for some.

    @Titon Catherine is a decent choice. She may have directed Twilight but she did direct good movies like The Nativity Story and Lords Of Dogtown.

    Basically a Love story set in the end of the world and giving a message of what means to be Human. Interesting Concept, but Catherine Hardwicke directing? they can do better than her.
