David Slade Clears Up Eclipse Concerns

May 5th, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News

David Slade sent an email to the Lexicon to clear up statements he made about the Twilight franchise.

“Dear Laura and Lori

I would be grateful if you could distribute this statement to the fans of Twilight:I would like to address some statements that I made regarding Twilight.

When I made these comments, I had neither seen the film nor read the books. I was promoting a comedy short film that I had made for Xbox and every pop culture subject was seen as a possible comedy target. I was being silly and none of the statements were from the heart.

Of course, I have since seen the movie and read the books and was quickly consumed with the rich storytelling and the beautifully honest characters that Stephenie Meyer created.

I would like to reassure everyone involved that I am invested in making the best film that I am humanly capable of, and that I am acutely aware of the power of the original books we serve.

Please be rest assured this statement is absolutely from the heart.

yours sincerely

    Hummm……… I guess the proof will be in the quality of the final product. But listen here Mr. Slade, we all have our eyes and ears on you now!!

    I want to believe him, so I shall. Until we see more from him. If he was just wanting to look good he could have just said his statement through Summit, but instead he went straight to the fans! I think that shows it is from the heart…. But one can never know.

    I don’t know why y’all are being so hard on him. So what, he said something stupid, and he admitted it. We ALL do that. He’s a human being, just like the rest of us. He sent a statement straight to the fans apologizing instead of through Summit, and I thought that was really nice and thoughful of him. If you don’t like him, then don’t watch Eclipse. It’s as simple as that.
