OMG. Sorry for the crap, and maybe I'm going a little overboard with this, but I LOVE Rachelle, and I do NOT want her replaced. I know, the schedule stuff, but this would just absolutely crush my dreams of the perfect Eclipse. I would rather see Eclipse more than New Moon, and my vision of Eclipse does not include a different version of Victoria.
Article:: It looks like the villainous Twilight vampire known as Victoria is getting some new fangs. Sources at Summit Entertainment say actress Bryce Dallas Howard (Terminator Salvation, Spider-Man 3, The Village) will be stepping in to replace Rachelle Lefevre, who is stepping aside due to scheduling conflicts. Lefevre originated the role of Victoria in the first film, and will be seen in the sequel, New Moon. Howard will play the part for the third installment, Eclipse. That movie is set to be directed by David Slade from a screenplay written by Melissa Rosenberg, and is expected to be released theatrically in the U.S. and Canada on June 30, 2010.

“I was stunned by Summit’s decision to recast the role of Victoria for Eclipse. I was fully committed to the Twilight saga, and to the portrayal of Victoria. I turned down several other film opportunities and, in accordance with my contractual rights, accepted only roles that would involve very short shooting schedules.
“My commitment to Barney’s Version is only ten days. Summit picked up my option for Eclipse. Although the production schedule for Eclipse is over three months long, Summit said they had a conflict during those ten days and would not accommodate me. Given the length of filming for Eclipse, never did I fathom I would lose the role over a 10-day overlap. I was happy with my contract with Summit and was fully prepared to continue to honor it. Summit chose simply to recast the part.
“I am greatly saddened that I will not get to complete my portrayal of Victoria for the Twilight audience. This is a story, a theatrical journey and a character that I truly love and about which I am very passionate. I will be forever grateful to the fan support and loyalty I’ve received since being cast for this role, and I am hurt deeply by Summit’s surprising decision to move on without me. I wish the cast and crew of Eclipse only the very best.”
As a rebel (yep, that's me!), I will have Rachelle Lefevre as my icon. You should do the same if you feel that no one can play Victoria like Rachelle can. We can start a Rachelle-loving epidemic here. LQTM! (x
Oh, and I know, we might not be able to do anything about this, [what's done is done crap], but I couldn't just do nothing. I had to do something, even if it doesn't change anything. So, before you jump the gun, it was just something I wanted to do. A little vent, if you will. |=
