And so, the lion fell in love with the lamb. But as $70.5 million worth of moviegoers watched the closing scenes of “Twilight” this past weekend, one thought unavoidably filled their love-struck minds: Where do Edward, Bella and all the other undead denizens of Forks go from here?

As Twilighters are all too happy to point out, author Stephenie Meyer has already penned three smash sequels to her intimate ode to human-immortal romance. The first, “New Moon,” got the green light for production this past weekend, less than 24 hours after “Twilight” began breaking box-office records. The best-selling sequel tells a decidedly darker story that has Bella receiving a nasty paper cut, getting attacked by one of her potential in-laws and becoming an adrenaline junkie while an in-hiding Edward teeters on the edge of suicide.

“It’s got werewolves, it’s got visual effects that turn people into werewolves, it’s got motorcycle stunts, you go to Italy. It’s probably twice as much as this [to film],” “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke explained when we asked her about the sequel just before “Twilight” opened.

Although the novel greatly reduces Edward’s presence, Robert Pattinson insists that “New Moon” is the installment he loves best. “I’m looking forward to doing the re-emergence … at the end of the second book, when he’s killing himself,” the star said when we spoke with him last week. “I think that’d be kind of spectacular seeing that. And the second book is my favorite book, so I’m quite looking forward to doing it.”

And as the final shot in “Twilight” promises, hell hath no fury like a woman who just lost her man. Luckily, the producers of the “Twilight” films were smart enough to sign Rachelle LefevreEdi Gathegi and their soon-to-be-far-more-important co-starTaylor Lautner for both “New Moon” and the potential third film “Eclipse.”
