What Could Have Been.. We Almost Got The "I Do's" In Eclipse! + More

UPDATE 12/2: Here's a few more interviews, one with Entertainment Weekly, where David Slade talks about the Edward scene that was planned but never shot. There's also some 3D scoop from E! Online, more from Next MovieVancouver Sun and deleted scene talk over at MovieWeb and CNN.

MTV's Next Movie blog got a chance to chat with David Slade ahead of the DVD release of Eclipse this weekend. Among the goodies they got out of him, was the scoop on the wedding that didn't happen:

We discussed a lot of the things at the script-writing stage — at one point, we were even going to shoot the wedding at the end of ["Eclipse"] but we knew there was another film coming”

Read the rest at Next Movie. So what do you guys think?.. would you have preferred to have seen the wedding at the end of Eclipse? let us know!

The LA Times also interviewed the director, and he shared details on just how long it took to finish Eclipse. He also mentioned why on the DVD, the focus was all on the fans:

"This is the only thing I've ever done that's had such a fan subculture, so with the deleted scenes I wanted to do a little justification for them," Slade said.

Slade spoke to Collider about the process of making Eclipse, and gave super fun and insightful information. A MUST READ.

Finally, Marc Malkin got Mr. Slade to talk about whether he hung out with the cast:

"All the time we spent together was working," he said. "We never hung out and had a beer. We were rehearsing. If we weren't rehearsing, we were shooting. If we weren't rehearsing or shooting, we were sleeping."
