Eclipse movie director David Slade wrote the letter below to all of us Twilight Saga fans! Thanks so much for taking the time to write us all David!
Dear fans of The Twilight Saga,
I want to congratulate you for reaching over 6 million fans on The Twilight Saga Facebook page.
It’s hard to fathom that it was just over one year ago that I started constructing this third and epic adventure which takes place in the town of Forks.
I want to share a story about one of our days of shooting with you.
It was a Friday night and the rain was relentless. We were at La Push to shoot the tribe’s histories, a great speech by Billy Black. We had Taylor and Kristen and the whole wolf pack around a campfire as the heavens let loose on us.
Gil Birmingham was in fine form as the rain hammered down on us all, we adjusted our lights so that the rain vanished into the black of night.
We constructed a tent over the scene to keep everyone dry as we worked, every 15 minutes or so we would have to tip it to stop the collecting rain from splitting the fabric.
For some reason still unknown, around 3am, the wolf pack stood exactly in the way of several gallons of rainwater as it was being cleared. Being the wolf pack, they just laughed it off as they stood there soaked to the bone.
We worked through the mud and the rain all night, until we had the scene perfected.
As we left, dawn was now cracking and in the dim light I passed a small army of fans who had braved the weather for the entire night, still standing there, holding drenched flowers and waiting to get a glimpse of our actors.
So, to those of you who stood behind our security, who waited in line at theatres overnight, to those of you who just love these stories, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is a love letter to you.
Each day I felt the weight of your favourite scenes, your favourite lines, your dreams and your imagination.
It has been an unforgettable journey, and now as I finalise the last prints to ready the film for your local theaters, I cannot wait for you to see it.
David Slade (Eclipse director) just Tweeted that they are still cutting Eclipse – and they’re adding more Edward!!! YAY! I sense that all the Team Jacob fans just rolled their eyes…? I’m sure there will be tons of Jacob, too
In case you missed it, Eclipse director David Slade Tweeted the (above) message. I sense that he’s getting a lot of people Tweeting and being pushy – so please, if you are Tweeting “why don’t we have a trailer yet?” please remember he is the director – he doesn’t own the rights to the movie and can’t make these decisions. We all want a trailer, but it’s not like Summit is going to forget to release it. We will have one when it’s ready
Eclipse movie director David Slade Tweeted the above message and I couldn’t help but wonder, if perhaps the ‘gift’ is an Eclipse trailer? I could be getting excited for nothing, but this looks promising! *keeps fingers crossed while typing*
Eclipse director, David Slade, took to his official Twitter to address questions about the Eclipse Movie Trailer. I’m sure it wont be long – we saw the New Moon trailer LONG before the movie was due out, I’m sure they will do the same thing with Eclipse.We will have to be patient and see
