'Twilight': Juan Antonio Bayona to direct 'Eclipse'?

Spanish horror director Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage) has been linked to Eclipse, the third movie in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight franchise, according to The Risky Business Blog.

Several other directors have also been rumored to be under consideration (Paul Weitz, James Mangold, Drew Barrymore) but the Guillermo Del Toro protégé, who’s never directed an English-language film, could deliver a stylish and frightening product. Summit Entertainment declined to comment to the RBB; a rep said producers were looking at a number of candidates.

    What the…..ugh. I hate all these rumorrrrrs! I’ll just wait and see. Geeeeez, NM hasn’t even begun filming yet and there’s a million rumors going on about Eclipse. I’m going to be patient. The truth will come out soon enough. =)

    Eclipse is my most favorite book in the TWILIGHT Saga, and with the very exciting, intriguing and action-packed storyline it presents (*m soo looking forward to see the different groups of vampires like d Mexican vamps who transformed Jasper & Victoria’s newborn army; more so that “tent” Jacob-Bella-Edward scenes*), i hope SUMMIT would truly hire the right person to direct it. I’ve seen and so much been moved by Pan’s Labyrinth and i’ve always been intrigued by d movie “The Orphanage”, so after learning that its director who’s a protege’ of del Torro’s is being eyed to be given the ” TWILIGHT baton”, the more m interested in watching it.
    imho TWILIGHT Saga is already a must read literary piece… more so the MUST-SEE movie franchise there is especially with the colorful list of directors that Summit Ent. are considering in ‘manning’ these soon-to-be literary pieces-coming-to-life classics!
