Eclipse Movie by Director David Slade

In a not so surprising movie Summit Entertainment is once again selecting a different director for Eclipse, the third movie in the Twilight Saga. This time Director David Slade’s got the job. So Chris Weitz because he is officially too busy delivering a great New Moon movie won’t be helming the movie Eclipse.

Eclipse Movie Directed by David Slade

David Slade directed the vampire movie ’30 Days of Night’ so the choice is not so odd. Here’s the lucky Spade:
Director David SladeBut we can but wonder about his ability to render the full spectrum of emotions from Stephenie Meyer’s novel. Can’t say that ’30 Days of Night” was romantic:

And romance is definitely a dimension not to miss in a Twilight movie!

Below a few words from Stephenie Meyer and Summit Entertainment about David Spade directing the movie Eclipse:

I am thrilled that David Slade will be directing ECLIPSE. He’s a visionary filmmaker who has so much to offer this franchise. From the beginning, we’ve been blessed with wonderful directorial talent for the Twilight Saga, and I’m so happy that ECLIPSE will be carrying on with that tradition.

Stephenie Meyer

Stephenie Meyer’s ECLIPSE is a muscular, rich, vivid book and we at Summit looked long and hard for a director who could do it justice. We believe we have found that talent in David Slade, a director who has been able to create complex, visually arresting worlds. We cannot wait to see the ECLIPSE he brings to life and brings to the fans eagerly awaiting its arrival in summer of 2010.

Erik Feig, Summit’s President of Production.

Twilight 3 Plot, Synopsis:
“Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.”

Let’s hope that David Spade and Summit Entertainment will keep in mind that they have to deliver a ROMANTIC vampire movie!

    HELLO! can we not keep just ONE director for the series? I don’t want Edward turning into a werewolf because we got some bimbo off the street to direct it! Catherine Hardwicke I understand because she’s doing other things but Chris Weitz is going too! jeez this is gonna be one hell of a ride.

    All i have to say is, that I hope this movie doesn’t end up R rated, with gore and too much fighting, etc.; i wish chris weitz were able to do all the movies- from what i have seen, he is an amazing director and puts just the right flavor to the story. if this david slade guy screws this up, he should know that he will lose a alot of fans (me being one of them) because i kno for a fact that my mother will not let me see R rated horror films. Remember: this is a LOVE story with a little action and danger to make it exciting. if the action and danger becomes the main focus (or worse yet, the whole vampire thing is turned to HORROR- which is not the way Steph Meyer intended it i’m sure) he’ll screw it up. so . . . i don’t know. I’m not too keen on this guy. In really hope they bring chris weitz back for breaking dawn- that’s a tricky one i think only he could hit the head of the nail with it.
