NEWS: Twilight Series to Legitamize Itself?

Hold on to your glittery diamond-when-in-the-sun horses, the Twilight series may be in line for a little bit of credibility. /Film reports this breaking rumor...

Drew Barrymore might not be a lock to direct the third Twilight film. THR is reporting that Guillermo Del Toro protege Juan Antonio Bayona is now rumored to be one of the top finalists to direct The Twilight Saga’s Eclipse. But then again, reps are saying that they are still looking at a number of candidates. James Mangol had been previously rumored to be in talks, and earlier today Twilight fansites were claiming that New Moon director Paul Weitz might return for the third film after all.

While I think that on paper, for the franchise, it's a great idea, I'm in the mindset that this may not be the best mood. He was set to helm Hater, the adaptation of the David Moody novel, which sounded like one hell of a project, perfectly fitting his style. Also, I have a problem with Summit sort of avoiding all women directors. This material has it's fan base, that is 99.9% girls, mainly tweens. However, this would add a ton of much needed credability to the film.

So what do you think? Who should take the helm of this franchise? Paul Weitz? Drew Barrymore? A three year old parapalegic? (Think of the brilliance that would be! I bet it'd be better than the first film...)

OH! And if you haven't seen the Orphanage, then the three year old I was talking about, yeah, I'd rather be talking to him. It's a brilliant film, probably one of the best, if not the best modern horror film...

Go see something good!
