Update: Bayona a Go for Eclipse
Just a quick update. Variety reports that Juan Antonio Bayona has indeed signed on to direct the third Twilight film, Eclipse. Summit Entertainment is projecting a release date of June 30, 2010.
Original story below:
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). The front-runner for the job is someone whom you'd never expect.
The Hollywood Reporter reported tonight that Guillermo Del Toro protege Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage) has emerged as one of the finalists to direct Eclipse, the third movie in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight franchise.
Even though this isn't new news, we first mentioned it back here, it would still be a pleasant turn of events and one we'll be watching very closely. Bayona killed it with The Orphanage; could he actually make an entry in this tweener series watchable?
