“Twilight” Facebook page achieves followership of 6 million fans

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: In a rare note to fans, “Eclipse” director David Slade made a lengthy posting yesterday on The Twilight Saga official Facebook page. The note acknowledged that a major milestone had been reached: the site has reached a followership of 6 million fans.

“I want to congratulate you for reaching over 6 million fans on The Twilight Saga Facebook page,” said the director. “It’s hard to fathom that it was just over one year ago that I started constructing this third and epic adventure which takes place in the town of Forks.”

Beyond his initial congratulatory statement, Slade went on to share a sentimental anecdote from the set of “Eclipse”. His story spoke of a particularly rainy night of shooting that soaked the entire cast and went on for hours, until the break of dawn.

“As we left, dawn was now cracking and in the dim light I passed a small army of fans who had braved the weather for the entire night, still standing there, holding drenched flowers and waiting to get a glimpse of our actors. So, to those of you who stood behind our security, who waited in line at theatres overnight, to those of you who just love these stories, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is a love letter to you.”

Sentimental, indeed! It sounds like Slade is feeling wistful as he nears the close of the project. His final remarks were as follows: “Each day I felt the weight of your favourite scenes, your favourite lines, your dreams and your imagination. It has been an unforgettable journey, and now as I finalise the last prints to ready the film for your local theaters, I cannot wait for you to see it.”
