Spanish horror director Juan Antonio Bayona (The Orphanage) has been linked to Eclipse, the third movie in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight franchise, according to The Risky Business Blog.
Several other directors have also been rumored to be under consideration (Paul Weitz, James Mangold, Drew Barrymore) but the Guillermo Del Toro protégé, who’s never directed an English-language film, could deliver a stylish and frightening product. Summit Entertainment declined to comment to the RBB; a rep said producers were looking at a number of candidates.
