Twilight Picks A Director For Eclipse

| Filed under: Twilight


Well the cogs of the Twilight machine have been set in motion.

And Drew Barrymore can suck it!!!!!!

As we suggested on Wednesday, Summit Entertainment has now officially tapped Spanish horror director Juan Antonio Bayona to direct Eclipse.

The third installment of Stephanie Meyer's four book series has already been given a June 30th 2010 release date. The sequel, New Moon, is already set to open November 20th.

Hope the franchise manages to hold up!

    UGH NO. i dont wan't drew, but i don't want this guy either. Twilight is a very American film and I don't want it to be stylized like Pan's Labyrinth. No no no

    Re: Long Dong Connery – So my fav dong, you don't care for this avie huh…. I can do alot of naughty things with this avie…. (wink)

    can you PLEASE LEARN TO SPELL 'HEY' YOU MORON? and why do you hate Drew? I am sure she will get over it. She applied for a job, she did not get it, she will get another. if you read the paper, it is happening in all the job fields nowadays. I am sure this is not the only thing that she was interested in doing. I am sure she is not broke. I am sure that others were interested in the director job, but of course she is a woman, and probably screwed someone you wanted to hump-the mac guy?

    My 13 year old daughter will be excited.

    Re: harrybalsac – When you say 'fat chick', are u referring to Perez himself?

  24. 24

    Re: LaDiva – I only read Playboy, just for the articles though.

  25. 25

    Re: Long Dong Connery – did you ever see the night or weekend comments on this site? its like a whole other world, people actually liking perez.

    I miss Catherine, which is something I never thought I would say!

    Re: Long Dong Connery – Oh yea hot stuff… (wack)

  37. 37

    Re: DikinCider – Divas right, the Night crawlers are a whole different breed, but Mistress is cool, she gets a pass cuz she's down under, but mostly they're fucktards, I'm gonna get some hate mail for that!

  38. 38

    Bayona is gonna make it rain on them hoes! The Orphanage was very atmospheric and he's gonna bring some atmospheric street cred to the franchise! I wish his ass was directing New Moon as well!

  39. 39

    twilight needs stylization, it came off way to kitschy the first go.

  40. 40

  41. 41

    I'm happy about this choice of director, The Orphanage was a great movie and I hope he will push the PG-13 limit of Eclipse as far as it can go.

  42. 42

    Re: harrybalsac – Lol you know for a fact that once they read this, they will want to rip your sacs off….

  43. 43

    What do you mean you 'hope it holds up'. The first movie proved it does not matter had bad it is, that there is a built in audience and they will come to see it. But it is about time they got a decent director for a least one of these movies. If they let Drewdo it, what a disaster that would have been.

  44. 44

    Excellent choice, after two iffy directorial choices with Catherine and Chris. Twilight is basically like a dark fairy tale, sorta in the realm of Pan's Labyrinth, and the Orphanage was awesome too. So, I say, please Bayona, bring Twilight the franchise out of the vat of velveeta cheese Catherine threw it in!!

  45. 45

    I think he will do a great job as director of Eclipse!!!!!!!

  51. pooja says – reply to this


    Good. Drew would of wrecked it.

    [re=3552727]Re: harrybalsac[/re

    I went to the Twilight movie by myself. I walked down a long hallway..thought that maybe there wouldn't be such a crowd and I could enjoy my popcorn in peace. I walked up the stairs and turned to the left and there stood the living breathing epitomy of a Twilight fan. This girl surely had the Edward Cullen shirt she was wearing specially made for her.. (there was no way such a size could be sold in a store). She was taking photographs of the theatre like it was the second coming of Jesus Christ. That was the first and last time I will see a Twilight film.

    Re: Jones19 – The Orphanage was directed by Guillermo del Toro, he´s Mexican! I don´t know who this Bayona Gypsy is, but why the Hell can´t Drew direct it?! Give the woman a chance before you bash her Mario.

  55. 55

    Re: Posh918 – sorry but u r WRONG."El Orfanato" was directed by J.Antonio Bayona.Del Toro is his "mentor", but didn't direct that movie, it was the Spaniard who did it. Why not giving a chance to that director who has proved he is talented enough to direct a Twilight sequel?It's not like Twilight was better than "El Orfanato"…at all.

  56. 56

    Suck it - that's shitty, Drew's cool. Why not give a person a chance, she has directed before. Well I guess if the first one sucked they might as well all SUCK. BTW - Guillermo was the Producer and Bayona was the Director.

  57. 57

    Re: LaDiva – they do the same with the potter films, probably to keep it fresh and new

  58. 58

    Drew is AWSOME!!
    And Perez can suck it!!!!!!!!

    Re: sarabrown22 – LOL LOL LOL

    Why do they keep changing directors? Its very frustrating.

    What if Chris Weitz does a great job and the fans really love him? Why dont they wait, or just hire him back on! Jesus.

    Every time a new director comes on, they change things and thats frustrating. Sometimes its good to change things that arn't working (like Nikki Reids blonde hair for one) but when good things, like the set or how someone acts, is changed that just throws me off.

  61. 61

    Yeah… I don't know why they can't stick with one director. It's really dumb. Makes no sense. But god I am so happy Drew didn't get it. I love her acting, but she hasn't proved that she's good at directing.

  62. 62

    oh god shes gonna ruin it! she cant direct worth a damn!

  63. 63

    Yeah I knew it is a fucking joke! What a cruel joke you, DREW BARRYMORE, have put us through! We will be avenged, bitch!

  64. 64

    YAY!!!!! no drew!!!!!!
    iunno who that guy is but im good wih it!

  65. 65

    Drew was never going to get it. and this is not a final statement from summit. so perez YOU CAN SUCK IT!!! even if u wouldnt mind 2, but this is just a rumor. nothing has been said.

  66. 66

    Why are they getting a new director for every movie?

  67. 67

    yessssss drew barrymore has no bussiness in the twilight bussiness!

  68. 68

    Well since I am a fan of dark natured films such as The Orphanage, I think this is a great choice. Although I am not too keen on films constantly changing directors I think this could be reeeally good. I think he'll do it right. He better!

  69. 69

    Today was a great day for twilight on perez!!! Three different post about Rob Pattinson and now no Drew. Great day!

  70. 70

    orphanage=awesome so hopefully eclipse will be too

  71. StayC says – reply to this


    YAY! no Vanessa and no Drew! The Twilight Saga may survive

  72. 72

    Drew will totally kill this!! It wouldn't have a mystery feel or suspense if Drew got her grubby lil paws on it!

  73. 73

    Hope he won't screw this one up!

  74. 74


  75. 75

    i dont know who he is..but I hope he make a good job!

  76. 76

    JUAN ANTONIO BAYONA, for director…um…okay, it's definitly better than drew,not that i don't like or anything, i just think she should stick to acting.
    i thought 'the orphanage' was a good movie and i HOPE he does as good on 'eclipse'.

  77. 77

    Yay! Stupid twilight makes me act like a 13 year old, but i really do like it all the same. I look forward to seeing what they do with the movies, it always is at least a little interesting how they tweak the story line and characters when they adapt books.

  78. 78

    i think summit have denies this aswell…. teves….

  79. 79

    Oh, thank god!
    I mean, I love Drew…but I don't think she should be directing a film like this.

  80. 80

    NOPE. Apparently they HAVEN'T EVEN selected a director yet; so there is CONFIRMATION (rumor?) that this is ALSO just a RUMOR, and that someone put an article out saying they actually spoke one-on-one with one of the head hanchos of Summit. Just like they did with Chris Weitz, Summit will probably send a mass E-mail confirming who the new director for Eclipse will be.

  81. 81

    FCK SAKE..1!!

  83. 83
