Corazon stays with 'Twilight' franchise

Distributor will handle Mexico release of 'New Moon'

MEXICO CITY -- Corazon Films, the Mexican distributor for Summit Entertainment's "Twilight," is back on board for the vampire saga's sequel.

The Mexico City-based distributor -- founded in 2007 by Eckhardt Von Damm, Elisa Salinas and Fernando Sarinana -- has signed up to handle "New Moon," which is expected to be released stateside in late 2009 or early 2010.

"New Moon" is being directed by Chris Weitz, with Dakota Fanning reportedly in talks to play one of the teen vamps.

Now in its 10th week in Mexico, "Twilight" has grossed about $10 million in the territory.
