The Twilight Lexicon has an article addressing this question (and Slade’s sudden Twitter deletion) , due to an audio clip released.
Wow, from the sounds of an audio clip up over at slashfilm.com, its sounds like David Slade, the director for the 3rd Twilight film “Eclipse” didn’t see Twilight and sounds like he actually hates the saga altogether.
This is a transcript from the article:
“…and so yesterday we were trying to find a movie to see and we’d seen all the good ones, you know, and there was nothing really coming out this weekend that we really fancied at all and having directed a vampire film and really gone for something completely different to the kind of romantic, you know, repressed hormone teen vampire movie we really weren’t interested in seeing Twilight but a lot of people said lets go so I wrote –
“Twilight drunk? No, not even drunk. Twilight on acid? No, not even on acid? Twilight at gun point? Just shoot me.”
[That’s like] a poem in a way […] at this point excites me even though people think I’m a really violent and unpleasant person I actually do have this romantic violent side to me. Maybe I should have seen Twilight.”
I have yet to see “30 Days of Night” which is the vampire movie he directed, but due to these statements, I am greatly concerned Slade is only in this for the money and doesn’t give a crap about the making “Eclipse” an awesome movie. Further more, those statements are kinda a big F**K you to Stephenie Meyer and Summit Entertainment.
David Slade better watch his mouth and his steps. Cuz hell have no fury like thousands for Twilighters scorned!!!
Tell me Twilighters, what do you make of this statement.
