As rumors about the possible director for “Eclipse” have been running wild these past few weeks, Kristen Stewart took time to expose what is in her mind on the possibility of Juan Antonio Bayona or Drew Barrymore directing the third “Twilight” saga. Sharing her opinion with Sci Fi Wire, she stated that she believes either Bayona or Barrymore will be a good choice.
“I don’t know. I mean, as long as they get someone who’s invested, as long as they get someone who cares,” the 18-year-old starlet explained. “It’s so above me, but I think that both of them are [good choices] in their own way. I’m sure that they’d be great. Drew’s been doing this her whole life, and she’s pretty cool.”
She further noted that it’s too early to say anything since neither has been signed for the project so far. “I could probably get behind both of those choices for various reasons, but neither’s [a lock]. Nobody’s been hired, so I don’t know yet,” so she claimed.
Aside from giving out her comment on “Eclipse” director rumor, the Tracy Tatro of “Into the Wild” also discussed a bit of the shooting location for “The Twilight Saga’s New Moon”. “It looks great. It looks the same,” she gushed about Vancouver comparing it to Portland. “We’re having to put green walls [in] places that don’t match, but we’ll put [in] what is right there after. It’s good. The feel, the atmosphere, the environment of the movie is such a character, so we can’t drop it. We will maintain that. It looks the same. It feels the same.”
To follow up the story of upcoming “The Twilight Saga’s New Moon”, “Eclipse” follows Bella as she once again finds herself surrounded by danger. Amidst all the danger, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob, with the knowledge that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. This vampire drama film is expected to hit U.S. theaters on June 30, 2010.

Over the last few months, a lot of cyber-ink has been spilled writing about the revolving door of “Twilight” series directors. And a lot has also been written about the belief by some Twilighters that women filmmakers are better equipped to depict Stephenie Meyer’s tender love story between a vampire and a human. All this made it even more interesting when I interviewed Kellan Lutz recently, and he revealed that Summit did in fact have a filmmaker in their sights for “Eclipse” that wasn’t Drew Barrymore.
And to paraphrase Austin Powers: It was a man, baby!
“I actually heard rumors that they did have a third director, and he fell out, and then they saw more people,” Lutz said of the director for “Eclipse.” “I would say [the name] if I could remember it. But I know it was a guy.”
It’s no secret that “New Moon” director Chris Weitz won’t be directing the third “Twilight” movie – or that sometime around when this mysterious male director dropped out, Summit’s search considered Drew Barrymore.
Regardless, Lutz said the argument that only females should direct “Twilight” films is nonsense. “I don’t think there’s any difference between male or female directors, as far as who can relate,” insisted Lutz, who plans to have a pajama party at his apartment for friends on March 20th – the night that the “Twilight” DVD is being released at midnight. “There’s no big difference of who can do what, or who is better with romance. I did like how Catherine [Hardwicke] did ‘Twilight,’ because it is that Romeo and Juliet type of movie.”
Clearly, the mysterious male “Eclipse” director couldn’t have been a name in the class of Spielberg, Fincher, Del Toro or the like, since Lutz couldn’t recall his name. But still, it’s interesting that Summit is willing to continue with testosterone-driven helmers behind the camera – and now Twilighters everywhere will always wonder who that mysterious dropped-out dude was.
As long as drew barrymore doesnt direct ill be happy (:
