Eclipse Director Hates Twilight

David Slade Director of Eclipse Hates TwilightHot off the heels of the news about David Slade jumping on board to direct the third offering in the Twilight Saga, Eclipse comes an interesting tale about this controversial director and his love/hate relationship with Twilight.  Slade had his Twitter account completely removed this week, for reasons that would shock even the mildest Twilight Fan.  He doesn't like Twilight.

One of David Slade's Tweet's from back before the first Twilight came out, wasn't very pro-Twilight. 

“Twilight drunk? No, not even drunk. Twilight on acid? No, not even on acid? Twilight at gun point? Just shoot me.”

Summit Entertainment has been pretty understanding that he truly meant this as a joke, but there was fear about what the hardcore fans would think no doubt, and therefore the reason for deleting the account. 

Slashfilm reported this and offers an audio clip of Slade talking on a radio show about these things he said.  So was he originally a hater that was won over by the series and is now a lover or is he trying to change the series to reflect his own interests or is Slade merely out for the money and sucked up his distaste for the movies and will direct the 3rd offering merely for the fat paycheck?  What do you guys think??  Personally, I hope he intends to put his own touch on the movies and make the best movie he possibly could.  He has a great cast and a great reputation behind him, let's see what he can do!
