A fearful day at the “Orphanage”

(Update on 3/13/09: According to the Los Angeles Times, the Variety item is wrong and Bayona has not been offered the “Twilight” gig. Stay tuned, but do check out “Orphanage” anyway.)
The “Twilight” series just got a lot more interesting: Juan Antonio Bayona, the young Spanish director of “The Orphanage,” just signed to direct the third film in the series, “Eclipse” (due in theaters July 30, 2010). Released here in early 2008, “The Orphanage” was a remarkable work of suspense, haunted by the ghost of horror films that came before it (“The Shining,” “The Innocents,” “The Others” and more). Bayona found freshness in the big-old-house-with-a-secret genre, scaring us deliciously with meticulously orchestrated suspense and artfully deployed images, rather than buckets of blood. Here’s the (subtitled) trailer, if you’d like a taste; the movie’s now on DVD and very much worth a look.
