Well, I guess the lesson here, kids, is that it pays to check your facts!
Just a quick update. Variety reports that Juan Antonio Bayona has indeed signed on to direct the third Twilight film, Eclipse.
Though the second film in the Twilight franchise, New Moon, is nowhere near in the can, that hasn't stopped Summit Entertainment from shopping for a director for the third entry, Eclipse (book review).
Wow, it really is becoming the Harry Potter franchise with vampires ... Thompson on Hollywood has learned that both Juan Antonio Bayona (pictured, The Orphanage) and James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma) are eying possibly directing the third movie in the Twilight franchise, Eclipse.
All right, so there’s not a helluva lot of insight in this Q&A with The Orphanage director J.A. Bayona, but it is the first time he’s spoken about Hater, the upcoming adaptation he’s doing of David Moody’s book, so it’s worth a mention.
Good news today for those of you waiting for more information on the Guillermo del Toro-produced adaptation of David Moody’s novel Hater; Universal has brought on The Orphanage helmer Juan Antonio Bayona to direct the film, according to Variety.
Thanks to the very cool folks at AICN, Quint especially, my wife and I got to check out a screening of the much-loved Spanish horror movie The Orphanage (review) the other night in Boston, which was attended by the film's screenwriter, Sergio Sanchez, and director, J.A. Bayona.
Now that Picturehouse, the first venture between HBO and New Line Cinema, have proven itself to be a success with the slow but steady release of Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth, how do they follow up? More Spanish thrillers, of course, and we’re fine with that!
