Did Kellan Lutz diss "Eclipse" director David Slade?
As Emmett Cullen, Kellan Lutz doesn't get a lot of screentime in the "The Twilight Saga," but as the character appears throughout the series the 24-year-old heartthrob has gotten to jump on the roller coaster ride his bigger co-stars have experienced. In fact, the role has been a boon to Lutz's career helping him land a significant role in the upcoming reboot of "A Nightmare on Elm Street." With over five years in the business then, it was somewhat surprising he made a public gaff regarding his "Twilight" directors.
When asked a publicity event for "New Moon" who he'd like to direct the fourth chapter in the franchise, "Breaking Dawn," Lutz told MTV:
If he had to pick between the directors who have overseen films in the series thus far, Lutz said he'd skip Catherine Hardwicke ("Twilight") and David Slade ("Eclipse," out next year) and instead select the man behind "New Moon." "Out of the three, Chris Weitz was amazing," he declared. "So if we could get him [to direct 'Breaking Dawn,'] it'd be great."
