David Slade Back PedalingSlash Film has an article about some comments David Slade made about Twilight a while back that he's probably going to regret for a very long time:
“Twilight drunk? No, not even drunk. Twilight on acid? No, not even on acid? Twilight at gun point? Just shoot me.”
Now it seems David is trying to repent. Here is an e-mail he sent to the people over at the Twilight Lexicon:
“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.
And speaking of David, Lainey Gossip got some pictures of him (and Taylor Lautner and Peter Facinelli) in Vancouver!
Also, Seth has posted about the new Twilight saga special editions, journals, and other books--which we posted about yesterday--on Stephenie's site.
