Summit Entertainment is one more time changing director for Eclipse, the third Twilight movie. Indeed, Summit announced today that David Slade has been hired to direct the Twilight Saga Eclipse, aka Twilight 3. So Chris Weitz who is working on New Moon won't helm Eclipse (officially it's because of a conflicting agenda, he would be too busy working on New Moon...)
Filmmaker David Slade once brought us '30 Days of Night' so he is no newbie when it's about Vampire movies. Here he is:
For sure he knows to make vampire movies, just check this trailer of 30 Days of Night:
But I have some doubt about his ability to properly adapt Eclipse... I mean sure, he will make a great Vampire movie, but the Twilight Saga is also about love...
Below a few words from Stehenie Meyer and Summit Entertaiment about David Slade directing the movie Eclipse:
Let's hope that Director Slade will respect Stephenie Meyer's novel, and that the movie Eclipse will be more than a simple vampire movie: what David Slade has to bring us is definitely a ROMANTIC vampire movie!
What do you think about David Slade helming the movie Twilight Eclipse? Any advice to the new director for him to better adapt Eclipse?
