Nikki Finke, noted Hollywood insider who gets the story right far more often than wrong, has a source stating that David Slade of Hard Candy, 30 Days Of Night fame is being looked at to direct Eclipse. Nikki previously broke the news of Juan Antonio Bayora being in the running, which lead to a series of online verbal volleys between her and Summit executive Eric Feig.
According to Nikki:
“I understand he’s met with author Stephenie Meyer and Summit prez of production Erik Feig. But let me be clear: there’s no deal yet.”
