Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore is looking forward to an Eclipse — or directing one, at least.

The actress and budding director revealed she's in consideration to helm Eclipse, the third film in the Twilight saga, The Associated Press reports.

"I'm one of the directors that is being talked about, which is great, because I'm a director now," Barrymore said. "But, you know, they'll make their choice."

Barrymore's directorial debut, Whip It!, starring Ellen Page, will be released later this year.

If Barrymore gets the directing gig, she will be the third director in the vampire film franchise. Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass) replaced Catherine Hardwicke for New Moon, scheduled to hit theaters in November. Eclipse is tentatively earmarked for a June 2010 release.
