Twilight Updates: New Moon Wolves, Another Eclipse Director
I'm packing all of the Twilight news into one post today, so that those who don't really care about the franchise can skip over it easily. Let's get down to it. That cringe-inducing photo you see above is of the "wolf pack" from the upcoming The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Seen shirtless are actors Chaske Spencer, Alex Meraz, Kiowa Gordon and Bronson Pelletier, all with Native American heritage, who are joining Taylor Lautner as werewolves in the film. Thanks to USA Today for the photo. In other Twilight news, apparently the report that Juan Antonio Bayona would direct the third film was actually wrong.
Nikki Finke at Deadline Hollywood is instead reporting that Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night director David Slade is now Summit's top choice for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. I haven't been reporting most of the Eclipse rumors because almost every week we hear about a new director, then the following week we hear about how he/she is not really attached. Finke says that he's met with author Stephenie Meyer and Summit's president Erik Feig, but that there's still no deal. While Slade does have vampire experience, the truth of the matter is that his vampires were awesome, whereas the vampires in Twilight were not.
