Get ready for darkness.
Twilight star Justin Chon tells me that director David Slade's Eclipse isn't exactly taking his lead from Catherine Hardwick or Chris Weitz.
"He's done pretty dark films so that's where I see [Eclipse] really gravitating towards—more of a dark kind of moody film," Chon said yesterday at BAFTA's pre-Emmy tea party. "Just shooting the scenes that I'm in, the mood is definitely different."

"David is very set on how he wants this movie to be portrayed," Chon said. "It's a lot more refined and maybe not as loose as the last two—at least for us humans. I can only imagine what he's doing with everyone else."
Chon also confirmed reports that Robert Pattinson has been living in a house rather than the usual hotel during filming in Vancouver, Canada.
"Security has been increased a lot," Chon said. "They're a lot more protective…If Rob was to go out in public without anybody, I think it could be pretty dangerous."
Even so, Pattz is dealing with the attention well. "It takes him a lot more time to get in and out of places," Chon said. "But he doesn't get angry. He's handling things great."
BAFTA’s soiree wasn’t the only bash in town toasting the television industry’s biggest night. Saturday Night Live poobah Lorne Michaels was honored last night at star-studded party thrown by 42 Below Vodka. Among the guests at the Sunset Tower Hotel soiree were Jon Hamm, Hugh Laurie, Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Andy Samberg, Jane Krakowski and Kristen Wiig.
