Eclipse Director Hired....Not So Fast

The LA Times is reporting that Summit Entertainment has not hired Juan Antonio Bayona to direct "Eclipse.":

By sheer coincidence, I had lunch today with Erik Feig, who's president of production at Summit and the man most involved with managing the hit series of films. ("New Moon," the second film in the series, begins production later this month with Chris Weitz at the helm.)

Feig was shocked to see the media reports saying Summit had hired Bayona, since -- ahem -- they're not true. "The 'Eclipse' directing job hasn't been offered to Juan Antonio or anyone else," he told me. "We've met with three or four talented filmmakers and we'll be meeting with three or four more other candidates before we make any decision. No one has been offered the job."
