In an unexpected move, studio replaces key vampire in blockbuster movie series.
Bryce Dallas Howard was put in place of the key vampire role named Victoria instead of Rachelle Lefevre, granted by the Summit Entertainment.
According to Erik Feig which is the Summit’s President of Worldwide Production and Acquisitions, ” We are incredibly happy that Bryce has agreed to come into the franchise.” In addition, ” Rachelle brought ‘Victoria’ to great screen life and Bryce will bring a new dimension to the character. The franchise is lucky to have such a talented actress as Bryce coming in to fill the role.”
On the other hand, Summit sadly said that Rachelle would not be resuming on as Victoria because her schedule conflicts with other movies and commitments of hers.
The new actress will take responsibility on the role beginning in “Eclipse,” the third installment in the hot vampire series.
Filming of “Eclipse” will begin in August of 2009, Summit approved. The film is expected to see on big screen on June 30, 2010.
On the other New Moon updates: Behind the scenes at comic-con’s ‘New Moon’ Panel.
At last week’s Comic-Con, the crew including Robert Pattinson and a Joan-Jetted-out Kristen Stewart, all made their way to San Diego for the highly anticipated “New Moon” panel and how they act backstage is quite revealing indeed.
All the crew seems quite composed before they make their big entrances to the stage, but it’s the way both Taylor Lautner and Robert interacted backstage that warmed our hearts. They were quite adorable play fighting in the moments before Taylor took to the stage. And, RPattz’s excited smirk as he ascended the stairs to hit the stage was decidedly adorable.
