SUMMIT ENTERTAINMENT STARTS PRODUCTION ON
THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE
Vancouver, BC – August 18, 2009 – Summit Entertainment announced today that it has commenced principal photography on THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE directed by David Slade (30 DAYS OF NIGHT, HARD CANDY) from a screenplay by Melissa Rosenberg. Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner will reprise their roles as Bella Swan, Edward Cullen and Jacob Black. The third film in the studio’s TWILIGHT film franchise based on Stephenie Meyer’s blockbuster book series, will be released theatrically in North America on Wednesday, June 30, 2010.
Along with director David Slade, several new actors are joining the TWILIGHT family including Bryce Dallas Howard as Victoria, Xavier Samuel as Riley, Catalina Sandino Moreno as Maria, Jack Huston as Royce King, Julia Jones as Leah, BooBoo Stewart as Seth, and Jodelle Ferland as Bree.
Also continuing in the saga as The Cullen Family are Ashley Greene as Alice, Peter Facinelli as Carlisle, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme, Kellan Lutz as Emmett, Nikki Reed as Rosalie, and Jackson Rathbone as Jasper. Billy Burke also returns as Charlie Swan. THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE is filming on location in Vancouver, BC.
Colombian actress Catalina Sandino Moreno has signed on to play Maria in “Eclipse,” the third film in “The Twilight Saga” that’s set to begin filming in less than a week. The Oscar-nominated star of “Maria Full of Grace,” 2004′s drama about a pregnant teenage drug mule, will tackle some decidedly less heavy subject matter a vampire who creates an army of newborn bloodsuckers, including future Cullen family member and then-Confederate soldier Jasper Hale (Jackson Rathbone). Jasper becomes a key member of the army, helping Maria conquer Mexican territories.
Though “Twilight” covered the back story of swoon-worthy teen vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), “Eclipse” delves deeper into the pasts of the rest of his vampire coven. On Wednesday, Jack Huston was announced as Royce King II, the human fiancé of Rosalie (Nikki Reed) who plays a key role in her transformation into a vampire.

Although there was a lot of fun to be had at TwiCon over the weekend, there was an elephant in the room few celebrities would address. While Twilighters took sides and spoke passionately about the recent replacement of Rachelle Lefevre as evil vampire Victoria for the third installment of the “Twilight” series, some of the saga’s stars refused to answer questions on the controversial matter — for understandable reasons.
A pair of high-profile stars who began the mega-franchise with Lefevre, however, did agree to speak with us on the record. And they were eager to say that they’ve spent the last few days sharing one key emotion with their fans: sadness.

A few months back, gossip around the internet suggested that Germany was to host a reality show designed to rival Germany’s Next Top Model. The premise was to find the perfect girl to land a role in the third movie of the Twilight Saga, Eclipse.
German Twilighters now reports that Sabrina has won the coveted role, and has a clip of Jackson Rathbone from the set of New Moon congratulating the three finalists.

Little-known Aussie actor Xavier Samuel is headed for the big time after landing a role in one of the hottest movie franchises around: Twilight.
Samuel has been cast in Eclipse, the third film in the Twilight series based on the best-selling books by Stephenie Meyer, his management company Shanahan Management told AAP.
He will play Riley, a good-looking college student and newborn vampire, who joins villain Victoria’s plot to murder Bella (Kristen Stewart).
“I’m really thrilled, but also very overwhelmed, I don’t think it has sunk in yet,” Samuel said.
“This is a fantastic opportunity and I’m really excited to be part of the film.”
But, there is a different sort of buzz going on from a fan circuit often found opposing “Harry Potter”: “Twilight” fans are clamoring for Tom to play Victoria’s lackey Riley in 2010’s “Eclipse.”
Tom isn’t the first guy “Twilight” fans have latched onto for the role. First Melissa Rosenberg, screenplay scribe for “The Twilight Saga,” threw a curveball when she told E! News she pictured Channing Tatum as Riley in the epic battle at the end of “Eclipse.” Then, Evil Iguana Productions fans rampaged the comments section of the article begging for Craig Deering to be cast as the role of Riley. Tom is one in a long line of fan-favorites to play the role, but he is quickly becoming the most popular.
“Ill be ready when they want me! Really, I’m only joking. Im not really sure at this point; but you will be the first to know if I find out anything!” Tom told his fansite, Feltbeats.com. He reiterated the sentiment on his Twitter, saying, “i keep getting asked if im being cast as Riley in Twilight! Ill let you all know if so!!!”
