Drew Barrymore Up For Third “Twilight”

Drew Barrymore is in the running to direct Summit Entertainment’s “The Twilight Saga’s Eclipse”, the third film of the series based on Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling book series says Entertainment Weekly.

Chris Weitz is helming the first sequel “The Twilight Saga’s New Moon”, but the studio opting for Barrymore is likely so that the production can stick to the rapid release schedule it has planned.

Barrymore just wrapped her feature directorial debut “Whip It!”. “New Moon” is scheduled to open November 20th 2009 while “Eclipse” will hit on June 30th 2010.
