David Slade Discusses ECLIPSE

David Slade, whose The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has already broken several box office records and earned the Twilight Saga franchise's best reviews, yet, was interviewed by TheWrap's Jordan Riefe. It's a great, if brief, interview. Well worth checking out.

Slade doesn't talk about working with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, or Taylor Lautner, but he discusses the director's role in Eclipse ("It's not director-proof. I don't believe anything's director-proof"), conferring with author Stephenie Meyer ("She would come in, and she would be an advisor. ... But we knew there wasn't time for a lot of discussion"), and conferring with the Summit Suits ("You can get every single person who needs to make a decision at Summit into the bathroom. So it's not as many as you think").

Slade adds that there may be a director's cut of 30 Days of Night out on DVD, which he promises will be darker than the version released in theaters.

Here's a brief (and funny) exchange:

What did they [Summit] want input on?

Largely big general points like, “Don't make Edward ugly in this scene. Make sure he's not in the sun because he should sparkle.”

I wish Riefe had asked if there'll be a DVD release featuring a darker director's cut of Eclipse as well.
