Chris Weitz’s Brother To Direct Eclipse?

Feb 28th, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News

Acting 411 is claiming that Chris’ brother, Paul, is set to direct Eclipse. Nothing is confirmed at this point, so for the moment this is just a rumor! Here is what they posted:

“There have been rumors circulating that Drew Barrymore will be directing the third installment of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Series. These rumors are false. 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.”

Thanks to S for bringing it to our attention!

You can read more about Paul here on IMDB.  He has worked with Chris on many projects and just finished directing the film adaptation of Cirque du Freak.

    This might just be a rumor, but I think it would be fine if he did direct Eclipse. He’s got experience, and he’s worked on some great films, he wrote and directed About A Boy, he directed American Pie, produced Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist and was Exec. producer on the Golden Compass. I think he’s got the know how and the experience to do a good job with the movie. But for now it’s only a rumor…*sigh* all the rumors…

    ehhhhh, i don’t really mind who directs it as long as it is good!!! i don’t want them 2 mess up eclipse because i luv eclipse.
    the gap between new moon and eclipse is so short because it doesn’t wanna get in the way of HP. apparently.
    new moon is my least favourite book but i just luv taylor lautner so i’m really excited!! but how can u not get excited about any twilight movie??

    I agree^^^^^

  5. Tiffany C. says:

    Well, if New Moon is good, I’m sure there would be some brotherly collaboration going on if he directs Eclipse… :D

  6. Jessica S says:

    I agree with Tiffany C ^^^^^^ i only hope that Chirs Weitz does a good job and the brotherly collaberation is a good thing. Cause if he doesnt do a good job then his brother directing Eclipse could cause some douts throughout the fans…

  7. Laura Leticia says:

    Well at least Chris Weitz brother is a more appropriate candidate for Eclipse than Drew Barimore.
