We heard last week that Drew Barrymore was apparently being considered to direct the third film in the Twilight saga, Eclipse. However she isn’t…because someone else is.
Summit Entertainment has tapped Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona to direct “Eclipse,” the third pic in the “Twilight” vampire series.
Summit, which had no comment Wednesday, is expected to make the official announcement soon. The minimajor recently gave “Eclipse” a release date of June 30, 2010.
Bayona’s a protege of Guillermo Del Toro. He directed the Spanish-language horror-thriller “The Orphanage,” which was exec produced by Del Toro, and is attached to helm the Universal thriller “Hater,” with Del Toro and Mark Johnson producing.
Could it be that Summit have actually made a good choice? Guillermo Del Toro is a great director, so a protege of his will no doubt have an eye for film making.
