E! Online’s Marc Malkin talked with David Slade earlier this week in advance of the Eclipse DVD release, and the director discussed the busy shooting schedule for Eclipse:
“We had a very tight schedule so there wasn’t much time to be too sympathetic, to be honest,” Slade told me earlier today while promoting this week’s release of the Eclipse DVD (out Dec. 4). “We had to go. We had to shoot. We had shoot after shoot after shoot. We had a 50-day schedule which isn’t normally what you have for a film of this scale.
“So we just had to crack on,” he continued. “If anything, there wasn’t time to go, ‘How are you feeling today? Are you all right? What’s going on?’”
They were so busy that Slade says he never even had the chance to get to know Pattinson, Stewart and the rest of the cast too well. “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.”
