Customising New.php - Page loads to dead (doesn’t show anything other then a white page and the loading icon in the browserbar)

I tried to modify the New.php, so that it fetches products with my custom attribute “new_product”. By doing this the page simply doesn’t stop to load and nothing shows up. Here is my Code:

class Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_New extends Mage_Catalog_Block_Product_Abstract
public function __construct()

$storeId    Mage::app()->getStore()->getId();

$product    Mage::getModel('catalog/product');
/* @var $product Mage_Catalog_Model_Product */

$todayDate  $product->getResource()->formatDate(time());
$products   $product->setStoreId($storeId)->getCollection()
addAttributeToFilter('new_product', array('yes'=>true))
//            ->addAttributeToFilter('news_from_date', array('date'=>true, 'to'=> $todayDate))
//            ->addAttributeToFilter(array(array('attribute'=>'news_to_date', 'date'=>true, 'from'=>$todayDate), array('attribute'=>'news_to_date', 'is' => new Zend_Db_Expr('null'))),'','left')
addAttributeToSelect(array('name''price''small_image''short_description'), 'inner')
addAttributeToSelect(array('special_price''special_from_date''special_to_date'), 'left')
/* @var $products Mage_Catalog_Model_Resource_Eav_Mysql4_Product_Collection */




Does anybody know what the problem could be?

Thanks, Daniel
