Bayona sounds a shoe-in for Eclipse director chair

Forget the rumor mills of gossip columns. Reliable Hollywood source Nikki Finke reports: "I can confirm that Summit Entertainment is telling Hollywood privately that Juan Antonio Bayona will direct Eclipse. It's a very out-of-the-box choice for the 3rd movie in the "Twilight Saga" series of Stephenie Meyer vampire novels being hurried to the big screen by the start-up studio. (I guess it doesn't matter that other sources tell me Bayona hasn't yet met Stephenie, huh?)"

Thanks to CBA for the tip!


  1. OMG WTF is that thing?! I'm going to have nightmares now lol!

  2. I peg him more for a "Breaking Dawn" director, but hopefully he'll do "Eclipse" justice! (As long as he doesn't have that freaky kid in the flick!)

  3. I hope he doesn't make it horror-movie creepy!!
