Can you blame David Slade for tackling a TWILIGHT movie in the effort to try to make it suck less? I'm not sure if that was his intention, but regardless the job comes with a pretty hefty paycheck. I mean, isn't this why anyone is doing it at this point?

That happened to be Slade's last feature until he got a job helming, VILLAIN.

What do we know about this movie? Nothing really, other than the fact that it's a psychological thriller written by Josh Zetumer (ROBOCOP, 2013). Producer on the project, Ben Browning said a few nice things, "David is a brilliant director with an eye for gritty, dark thrillers. He's the perfect match for Josh's phenomenal script and we are confident that we will draw top-tier talent to the project in the coming weeks."

I like Slade. The guy directed HARD CANDY, 30 DAYS OF NIGHT, and the "Open House" episode of BREAKING BAD. VILLAIN will probably be a good one too.

If I was as talented as Slade and Hollywood was giving me a hard time with original, edgy projects I'd also shamelessly cash-in and do a Twilight.

Plus I'd try my very best to get head from Kristen Stewart.

So will they be looking for a new director for that Daredevil reboot/sequel that never seems to get any closer to happening?

I will watch anything this man directs. His episode of Breaking Bad had the most perfect use of a Fever Ray's If I Had a Heart that seriously chilled me down to the bone. I was disturbed but I wanted to clap at its brilliance after. David Slade is the man.

Awake

David Slade recently directed the pilot to NBC's "Awake". It was the best TV pilot I've ever seen, and one of the single best hours of television in years. The rest of the series has been so-so, but he directed the hell out of that pilot.
