Funny how a 'New Moon' rising can bring out a transformation in all of us. Just days after 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' director Chris Weitz admitted during an interview with MovieMaker Magazine that "I have maybe one more film in me," it now appears that he's had a change of heart.

Far from folding up his director's chair, a new interview with New York Magazine reveals that Weitz is blaming all those pesky retirement rumors on -- what else? -- online gossip.

"That's become Internet Chinese whispers," Weitz insists in his chat with NY Mag. "I said something like, 'Oh I'm so tired of doing all these movies,' but that became, 'I'm not doing any more movies now.' There's always a time I say never again, but it's more like a bad hangover."
