Summit Hires David Slade to Direct Eclipse


After the intense Hard Candy, starring Ellen Page, and the vampire thriller 30 Days of Night, director David Slade will soon add Eclipse to his résumé. Summit Entertainment announced today that Slade will direct the third installment of the Twilight saga, which is set to open June 30, 2010. In the press release, Summit's President of Production, Erik Feig, states:

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.

30 Days of Night scared the living daylights out of me, so I'm guessing Slade's take on Eclipse will have less sparkle, more sheer terror. I'm actually excited to see what he does with the material. If nothing else, this should be interesting!
