David Slade, who’s been chosen as the director of Eclipse (click here for a link to Summit Entertainment’s website), has written an official email for the Twilight fans to address their concerns over some negative comments he made in regards to Twilight.
Here’s the email which he sent to Twilight Lexicon (in his own words and unedited):
Dear Laura and Lori
I would be grateful if you could distribute this statement to the fans of Twilight:I would like to address some statements that I made regarding Twilight.
When I made these comments, I had neither seen the film nor read the books. I was promoting a comedy short film that I had made for Xbox and every pop culture subject was seen as a possible comedy target. I was being silly and none of the statements were from the heart.
Of course, I have since seen the movie and read the books and was quickly consumed with the rich storytelling and the beautifully honest characters that Stephenie Meyer created.
I would like to reassure everyone involved that I am invested in making the best film that I am humanly capable of, and that I am acutely aware of the power of the original books we serve.
Please be rest assured this statement is absolutely from the heart.
I hope he means what he said because Eclipse is such a good book. I love the love triangle between Edward, Bella & Jacob and the fighting scene in the end is going to be really good (if it’s done well…). Anyway, we just have to wait and see.
