‘Eclipse’ helmer in talks to direct NBC pilot

David Slade eyes 'REM' gig

David Slade, who helmed “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” is in talks to direct the NBC pilot “REM.”

“REM” is the brainchild of Kyle Killen, whose Fox series “Lone Star” — a critical hit but ratings disaster — drew the first cancellation of the TV season. Pilot centers on a police detective living in two realities and who must solve cases using clues from each of his lives.

This would mark Slade’s first TV project. Besides “Eclipse,” which grossed nearly $700 million globally, his other efforts include indie film “Hard Candy” with Ellen Page and horror pic “30 Days of Night.”

The Brit helmer has also directed a handful of musicvideos for bands including the Stone Temple Pilots, 3 Colours Red and Muse.
