Announcement from Summit: DAVID SLADE TO DIRECT ECLIPSE!

Summit Entertainment announced today that David Slade has been hired to direct THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE from a screenplay written by Melissa Rosenberg. THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, the third film in the studio’s TWILIGHT film franchise based on the Stephenie Meyer’s blockbuster book series, will be released theatrically in North America on Wednesday, June 30, 2010. The announcement was made by Erik Feig, Summit’s President of Production.

Filmmaker Slade came to prominence as a director for his work on 2006’s engrossing film HARD CANDY starring Academy Award® Nominated actress Ellen Page as well as directing 2007’s genre hit 30 DAYS OF NIGHT which opened to number one at the box office its first weekend of release.

Feig said, “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.”

Meyer stated, “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.”

Ahhhh, this should be very very interesting. I found 30 Days of Night facinating. I just hope he doesn't overgore The Eclipse. But I'm really excited to see his take on the book.

i agreed to what other says...
i think it would be much amazing and thrilling if the whole story would be seen in the movie..

i love everything about it...

amazing story yet there are points that might confusing for me-i mean needed to be cleared...
so if they would filmed the whole of it i think i would love it more than i love it now...

director's would not be the problem...
but problem would come out if the audience wouldn't be pleased in the movie...

i hope for the best of the best thing you can do...

I want to know the cast

As to the casting of the actors....Lana Veenker was the principal casting director, not Catherine. I know this was surprising to me also. Check out Twilight Lexicon under the "About Movie Casting"

Now as to the Cullens actors...I loved them all but I was a bit surprised at the actor that portrayed Eric. But diversity is a good thing.:)
