David Slade will not see the Twilight film even at gun point?

UPDATE (May 6): David Slade wrote to the Twilight Lexicon and addressed this issue. Click here to read what he has to say. :)

Yesterday, movie and entertainment website /Film dug up old video of recently-named Eclipse director, David Slade, talking about the Twilight film in not-exactly-glowing terms:

…and so yesterday we were trying to find a movie to see and we’d seen all the good ones, you know, and there was nothing really coming out this weekend that we really fancied at all and having directed a vampire film and really gone for something completely different to the kind of romantic, you know, repressed hormone teen vampire movie we really weren’t interested in seeing Twilight but a lot of people said lets go so I wrote -

“Twilight drunk? No, not even drunk. Twilight on acid? No, not even on acid? Twilight at gun point? Just shoot me.”

[That’s like] a poem in a way [...] at this point excites me even though people think I’m a really violent and unpleasant person I actually do have this romantic violent side to me. Maybe I should have seen Twilight.

This also comes at the heels of Slade's deletion of his Twitter account, where he initially Tweeted that "Just shoot me" line.

While this looks bad on the surface, here's hoping that the more rabid Twilighters won't blow this one out of proportion. This writer isn't even sure why /Film felt compelled to dig this up in the first place. But as always, we bring you the news, so here it is.

    hello! I'm a lex member and I got to see this post there too and that's why I give you this link to check on David Slade's side about this issue. He wrote to Alphie and Pel (Laura and Lori) to explain.
