It was leaked yesterday that Juan Antonio Bayona protege of master director Guillermo Del Toro was in the running for the Eclipse job.
Today, Variety has added to these rumors stating that not only has Bayona been offered the job, but he’s actually landed it. They state:
“Summit, which had no comment Wednesday, is expected to make the official announcement soon.”
Generally speaking Variety, like EW and Nikki Finke, is one of those sources you can rely on.
