Well that didn’t take long, a little over 24hrs have gone by since TwilightLexion, myself and many other media outlets reported on the comments Eclipse Director David Slade made about Twilight, putting the entire Twilight universe into a frenzy.
Here is the actual email from David Slade posted up the lex:
“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.
Now, I am not an easy forgiver, but he does sound sincere. At least he had the good mind to issue a statment via the TwilightLexicon.com and not some crap PR statement.
Tell me Twilighters, do you belive him or is he just trying to dig himself out of this grave???
