David Slade tells the LA Times that on the Eclipse DVD he wanted justification for fans

Finishing Eclipse had David Slade sleeping, rehearsing, shooting, and sleeping. The 50 day schedule was grueling and not typical for a movie of this magintude. The LA Time's blog Ministry of Gossip caught up with David Slade who talked fans, Bella and Charlie, and married life.


"Finishing the film is a moment of great weight. It's not just getting it cut, it's when the final print is timed and there's nothing more to do," he said. "It was the night before we
did our press junket we finished it."


David Slade said he did his best with the "Eclipse" DVD to please the vampire saga's legions of 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.


Chief among the scenes cut from the theatrical version of the film was an exchange between Stewart's Bella and her on-screen dad Charlie, played by Billy Burke.







[Spoiler alert!] The two have a bonding moment after her high school
graduation, one of Bella's last mortal activities before Pattinson's
Edward follows through on making her a vampire.

"It's all in Billy's face, when you watch the film 30-odd times or more, there's more in his face than in his words," Slade said. "I was so confident that was going to make it in, we did it in one shot. It was
two people trying to be as close to each other as possible."

Fans will get to live that moment when the DVD hits stores on Dec. 4.

Meanwhile, Slade will announce his next film in a matter of weeks, but insists it won't be any of the numerous projects that have been rumored.

I can't wait to hear his justification for cutting Edward's part after the *gag* Jacob kiss. His I left you bleeding speech shows his TRUE character.

I agree completely with you! Edward's "I left you bleeding" speech shows his soul and heart, his deepest essence! It's a scene that should tell a lot about him (Edward).
