EW is reporting that the third Twilight Saga movie, Eclipse, could have found itself a new director. David Slade is rumored to be in the running for the job, and is the latest in an ever-growing line of directors to be linked to the movie. Drew Barrymore previously denied any involvement, and whether Juan Antonia Bayona is still on board is anyone's guess.
Slade was last seen at the helm of 2007's vampire flick 30 Days of Night and is also responsible for Hard Candy, which starred a pre-Juno Ellen Page. We're not sure what the fans will think of him, but at least he's got some experience with the undead -- oh, and murderous little teenage girls. Lets hope he remembers how to direct something that isn't rated R, or he'll have Stephenie Meyer to answer to. Posted 04.22.09 by reelz
