Eclipse may have a director

With Summit aiming to keep the Twilight gravy train rumbling the tracks to profitsville, the company has been busy looking for a director to work on the third film in the series, Eclipse.

And now, despite the company continuing to insist it’s looking at a number of possible choices, one name is starting to gain traction: The Orphanage’s Juan Antonio Bayona.

With New Moon helmer Chris Weitz unable to segue easily on to Eclipse due to the company's fast timetable and release slot, Summit has been looking at other choices to tackle the film.

A wide-ranging list of directors that includes Paul Weitz (can’t think who suggested him!), Drew Barrymore and James Mangold has apparently been considered, but - after being mentioned back in January - Bayona’s name seems to be sticking.
