Paul Weitz To Direct Third ‘Twilight’ Film
Fans hoping to bring some girl power back to the “Twilight” world with possible “Eclipse” director Drew Barrymore could be in for a surprise if reports of “New Moon” director Chris Weitz’s brother, Paul Weitz, stepping in as director are true.
According to the “Twilight” fan site Twilighters.org, “Drew Barrymore will not be directing the third installment of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Series… Due to the ‘New Moon’ post-production schedule for director Chris Weitz, his brother and co-owner of Depth of Field Productions - Paul Weitz - will be directing ‘Eclipse.’”
If Paul does get the job, he has plenty of experience to bring to the directors’ chair. He has helmed many movies, including “American Pie,” “In Good Company” and “About A Boy.”
When contacted by Access Hollywood, reps for Summit Entertain, the studio producing the “Twilight” movies, were not available for comment.
“Eclipse” is slated for a summer 2010 release.
