Stephanie Mangold Headed for Twilight’s Eclipse?

Summit Entertainment is in talks with director James Mangold to helm Eclipse, the third adaptation in Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. That’s according to Production Weekly who announced the news this morning.
Mangold is the man behind Girl, Interrupted (lots angsty gals in that one), Walk the Line and 3:10 to Yuma. Again, it’s not confirmed he’s locked to direct, but if and when it is we’ll let you know.

Summit is currently gearing up New Moon, based on book two, with Chris Weitz at the helm. Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are confirmed to star.

Does anyone else find it disturbing that all the movies will be done by different directors????

Courtney Evans (courtneyevans) They're already thinking about NEW DIRECTORS??? We haven't even seen this guy's work with Twilight-Movies...what if he's good?? And I ttly agree about the Harry Potter thing..the first two were good..the third was ok..and then they all just starte to suck..and go so-oh different from the book.

well i thnk they sucked because the books got longer and it made it harder to put 700 page books into 2 hours plus the directors sucked they added things that shouldn't have been there

Courtney Evans (courtneyevans) Yep..Part of why I cannot wait for the 7th one. Its going to be divided into Two movies.

Stephanie Ok they are saying that this is not true...

A report tying Washingtonville film director James Mangold to the third installment of the “Twilight” saga “Eclipse,” has been called false by a studio official.
Paul Pfluge, head of corporate communications for Summit Entertainment - which controls the “Twilight” property - said a report by trade publication Production Weekly that said Summit was “in talks” with the director were “not accurate.”
Mangold, who directed Angelina Jolie and Reese Witherspoon to Oscars for “Girl, Interrupted” and “Walk the Line,” respectively, graduated from Washingtonville High School in 1981. His last film was the western remake “3:10 to Yuma” with Russell Crowe and Christian Bale.

Universal Pictures announced last week that Mangold was attached to direct and produce “Juliet,” a upcoming novel by Danish author Anne Fortie, about a young girl who might be the descendant of Romeo and Juliet.
