Twilight producers announce director for “Eclipse”



Summit Entertainment has brought on Spanish director Juan Antonio Bayona to direct “Eclipse,”  the third feature in the“Twilight” franchise. Bayona is a protege of director Guillermo Del Toro and directed the atmospheric horror-thriller “The Orphanage.” He’s also slated to direct “Hater” for Universal with Del Toro producing.

Following on in the Alien and Batman franchise footsteps of hiring startlingly different directors with differing styles, “Twilight”director Catherine Hardwicke was replaced by Chris Weitz for “New Moon,” which is due for release in November of this year.
