David Slade says he won't do director commentary on 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' DVD

As you know, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has yet to hit theaters (though it begins at midnight showings tonight), so news related to the Eclipse DVD is definitely premature . . . except for this.

Steve Weintraub with Collider.com interviewed Eclipse director David Slade and asked him a few questions about what fans can expect from an Eclipse DVD.

Naturally, Slade only had a few details to offer, but they are interesting nonetheless. As he'd mentioned in the Eclipse filmmaker panel at the press junket a couple of weeks ago, the "Angela and Bella" discussion (over graduation announcements) was cut from the film, and Slade explained that it was timing - and nothing to do with performances - and pacing that cause the deletion. Fans should, he explained, expect to see that scene on the deleted scenes . . . but don't quote him on it.

Also, Slade proclaimed that he'll not be appearing on the DVD in the capacity of a director commentary. Why? Well, listen to his words in the video below.

On another note, Slade cleared up what he called a "web rumor," saying that he does not know what his next project will be but that The Shadow is absolutely not it.
