'Twilight: Eclipse' Director David Slade to Direct Maiden Episode of NBC's 'Crossbones'

Date August 13, 2013

By Tim Kenneally

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - David Slade is setting sail with NBC again.

The director, whose big-screen credits include "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," will direct the first episode of NBC's upcoming pilot drama "Crossbones," an individual familiar with the situation told TheWrap on Monday.

The series, which is slated to premiere midseason, portrays an 18th century pirate society more civilized than the British Empire.

John Malkovich will play the pirate Blackbeard in the 10-episode drama, which is written by "Luther" creator Neil Cross.

This isn't the first time that Slade has collaborated with NBC. The director also helmed the first episode of NBC's serial-killer drama "Hannibal," which premiered earlier this year.
