book to movie adaptations

We reported on the news recently that David Slade (director, "30 Days of Night") would be taking on the third film in the Twilight franchise. That, understandably, had horror fans a little miffed, especially considering he made specific quotes while promoting "30 Days" indicating that he was not a fan of the romantic type of vampires. Presumably, a big fat check changed his mind on that one. And hey, who can blame him.
