David Slade to Direct Eclipse


Summt Entertainment have just released a press release naming David Slade at the director to film Eclipse.
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.

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."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."
What do you guys think? I really haven't seen any of Slade's films, so I'm eagerly waiting to see how it turns out =)
