Eclipse Director Up For Wolverine 2

| Filed under: Film FlickersTwilight


We’re SO ready for vampires vs. werewolverines!

Okay, obviously that’s not actually going to happen, but we’re very curious to see what The Twilight Saga: Eclipse director David Slade would do with Wolverine 2.

Aside from Slade, the other top candidate for the director’s chair on Wolverine 2 is Robert Schwentke, who directed The Time Traveler’s Wife.

Clearly, the ability to direct epic fight scenes between vampires and werewolves is more pertinent than the ability to bore audiences visualize time travel.

Sources say the film’s story will revolve around Wolverine traveling to Japan. There is talk that the script may draw from a 1979 Wolverine story arc, wherein he falls in love with the daughter of a Yakuza crime boss.

A shunned and forbidden romance between lovers from two drastically different walks of life? Yeah, the Twilight guy should be able to handle that.

Who do U think should direct Wolverine 2?

    I think it might be cool, Eclispe wasn't that great, but he did awesome on Hard Candy (with ellen page).

    I'm not a fan of the Twilight series, but I did watch Eclipse and the only good thing about the whole movie was the fighting scenes, they needed to kill more people off, so I think he would do a good job with Wolverine 2

    Eclipse sucked! Even though it made some big bucks, still most people hated it and for a good reason. It had some of the worst directing ever seen. Just being able to yell ACTION! and CUT! doesn't equal a good directer. And what was with the god awful editing? I mean that bullshit scene when Jacob gets hurt, ugh! horrible! Wolv2 is going to suck major fat cock.

    Eclipse was poorly directed, considering it was (arguably) the best book in the series. I favored whoever directed New Moon. He turned what was (arguably) the weakest book of the 4 and did a darn good job with what he had. The fight scene at the end of Eclipse was the best part of the movie for me.

    How can you say that The Time Traveler's Wife is boring film when you hyped up that yawn fest "Remeber Me"- the only thing memorable about that was i lost £8 and 90 minutes of my life for the biggest cure for insomnia!

    David is a action director. I haven't seen Eclipse but the only thing I've heard positive was the kissing scene between Jacob and Bella, and the fight scene between good vamps and shifter (wolves) and the bad vamps. So I think he will be the right director for the Woverine series because they are all about action.

    Re: Lady_Saccharine_Sweetness – i agree with you! everyone says that New Moon was a horrible movie and Eclipse was the best but its totally the opposite. I expected so much out of Eclipse because the book was amazing and I had low expectations for New Moon because I didn't like the book but both movies proved me wrong for once.

    This guy looks like he's channeling Hitchock. Minus the talent.

    I think he's perfect for it!

    the only people that saw the time travelers wife and did not like it are either to stupid to follow it and understand it. or only like bombs and explosions to entertain them.

    it was one of the best moviesin the last 2 years.
