Update: It's official - Summit Entertainment has tapped David Slade to direct the third Twilight film Eclipse. Twilighters, tell us what you think of their choice below.
Nikki Finke is reporting that Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night director David Slade is being eyed as a possible choice to direct Eclipse, the third in Summit Entertainment's Twilight Saga.
While they haven't quite reached a deal with Slade yet, it at least makes sense on the surface - he's already done a vampire movie, albeit a much edgier, far less teeny-bopper one. And even though 30 Days was far from perfect (thanks a lot Josh Hartnett), it still showcased Slade's talent for impressive visuals. After all, the Twilight franchise needs something to distract from the fact that Kristen Stewart looks stoned half - ok... all - the time.
