Bayona's On to Direct Eclipse
03.12.09 by REELZ
As previously rumored, Variety reports that Spanish horror wunderkind Juan Antonio Bayona will direct Eclipse. Summit Entertainment is expected to make an official announcement soon.
Bayona is a protege of Guillermo del Toro. Under his helm, Eclipse can be expected to be more of a horror genre pic than Twilight. He's also attached to direct the thriller Hater for Universal, his first movie in English. He previously directed the critically acclaimed Spanish-language horror thriller The Orphanage, which del Toro executive produced.
