Another director has been thrown in as the potential candidate to helm the third 'Twilight' movie, 'Eclipse', with Spanish filmmaker Juan Antonio Bayona being linked to the vacant position.

Drew Barrymore and Paul Weitz apparently are not the only people considered for the directing part of "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse" as the name of Juan Antonio Bayona is now brought forth. Bayona, as claimed by The Hollywood Reporter, has been listed as another potential director candidate for the second sequel of the 2008 blockbuster "Twilight".

Known for his work in horror mystery "The Orphanage", the name of this Guillermo Del Toro protege surfaced in recent days among those considered for the behind-the-lens part, which also included director James Mangold. Despite the newly-unraveled speculation, Summit Entertainment have declined to comment with studio representative saying that producers were looking at a number of candidates.

Earlier, Drew Barrymore has confirmed circulating rumor of her being considered for directing "Eclipse". "I'm one of the directors that is being talked about, which is great, because I'm a director now," she said. "But, you know, they'll make their choice." At the same time, Paul Weitz, the brother of "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" director Chris Weitz, has been linked to the part as well.

Based on the third book in Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" series, "Eclipse" revolves around Bella as she once again finds herself surrounded by danger. Amidst all the danger, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob, with the knowledge that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. The movie is expected to hit U.S. theaters on June 30, 2010.
