Slade is probably the best option we've heard thus far.

Having the director of a Twillight film direct a X-Men film Is not going to go well with some.While I am aware critics say Eclipse Is the best of the twillight films Twillight
and X-men are totally different beasts.Hopefully Slade can do action as well as romance.

Checking up online It come up David Slade directed 30 days of Night.So I don't think we should worry about him directing somethign different than twillight.Now the storyline for Wolverine 2 which Is a loose adaption of the classic Chris Claremont Frank Miller Wolverine Miniseries Is one Hugh has been wanting to do.In fact that Is what he wanted to do for a wolverine spinoff but Fox wanted first a origin film.

I think they should limit the budget below $100 mil and go for something more daring, like an R rated epic. It's Wolverine, so it'll make money. Fox needs to stop worrying about playing it safe.

Hard Candy was a very tense, difficult movie to watch. I mean that as a compliment to Slade and Patrick Wilson and Ellen Paige. Very well done. I'd be happy with Slade directing this.

**** Slade, He lost all my respect after he had bashed Twilight a lot on his Twitter and then turned around and made one himself and deleted his old Twitter account. I don't usually call people this, but he is a sell out.

So was Tsotsi and look how Gavin did...

Eclipse was a mediocre movie. I could care less for either of these directors.

Not for much longer, he's actually shutting down his production company, they announced it this week. He's still got producing credit on the Wolverine sequel, but I don't know if he'll be as involved this time, seeing as he's looking to get out of the producing game.

Even so, if he is the better director of the two, who cares if he's a sell out, let him make the movie and report him to the hippie police later.

Wolverine in Japan is such a complex story to tell... it requires a true talent not to make it one more "Elektra"... and Slade is NOT a person who can handle it. Hard Candy was great, 30 days of night - good, but Eclipse ruined all the trust in this person.

At least I hope he'll use the same camera in fight scenes as in 30 days of night.

That is absolute rubbish. So as soon as a director does one so-so movie, all previous work is dismissed? By that criteria Martin Scorsese should have been written off in the late 70s after 'New York, New York', Speilberg should have been written off after '1941'...

(edit: I haven't even seen any of the Twilight movies, but from what I've read his one was by far the best.)

He can handle the material presented in Hard Candy, but can't handle a Wolverine movie?!

Eclipse ruined everything because he did a bad job directing it, or because it was a Twilight movie?

I would go for Slade because of hard candy and 30 Days of Night. Those are very well done films in my opinion. Eclipse didn't feel like a Slade film. It felt like he adapted to the series more than having the series adapt to him. Plus I think all three directors of twilight have talent and have made good movies collectively (Thirteen, About a Boy, American Pie, Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night), I just think Twilight is horrible material.

Twilight is awful material, so I wouldn't hold any director against that. They've got to work with what there is, and in Twilight's case it isn't much.

Hard Candy is buried on my Netflix queue somewhere, I should bump it up so I can check it out.

why, cause slade directed a twilight movie? the other guy i'll give you, not farmilliar with the majority of his work, outside the time travellers wife, hence my lack of motivation to explore the rest of filmography, but i've seen 30 days of night and hard candy and both were excellent, (well, hard candy was excellent, 30 days of night was pretty good though) now i won't say eclipse was good, cuz i haven't seen it, but i hear its actually decent, considering the two films preceding.

No. Because 30 Days of Night was bad and The Time Traveler's Wife was among the worst films of 2009.

well, i'll give you schwenkt or whatever his name is, seeing as how he directed time travelers wife, but i liked 30's days of night, the ending wasn't the greatest, but i loved the portrayal of vampires, (that's how i i think vampires SHOULD be portrayed in film), and hard candy was very good imo, so out of the two directors, i think slade has more going for him.
