Rumors, Schmumors: Is Eclipse Filming Concurrently?

While I'm stuck inside at my inlaws house, I may as well catch up blogging. We have to take a nap before going out to attempt to see 100 monkeys tonight, because we are old farts who tire easily. Plus, I sheepishly suggested that I wanted to do a little pre-dinner set-stalking to XXX, where I heard that there is filming taking place later today, but Mr. TCA wasn't into it...so, here I am, stuck as if I was back in high school without a car.

Kate sends me inneresting news -- just speculation, but who knows?
One of my best guy friends went out to LA to visit his mom over Easter and he ended up going to Easter dinner with someone who worked on Twilight and is currently working on New Moon. They talked briefly about it, saying that they would film in Italy at the end of May. My friend also said that the crewmember told him that they are currently shooting both the 2nd AND the 3rd. I asked my friend if he meant that they were filming Eclipse right after they finish New Moon, but he said that he was sure they are filming both. It kind of makes sense and it explains why Taylor Lautner was in the parking lot pictures on Lainey Gossip (Jacob shows up at Forks H.S. in Eclipse to confront Edward).
Thanks, Kate!

  1. Ooh - AWESOME TwiCrack - it DOES make sense!

    I was wondering about Jacob being there too (looking all "bad boy" - yum!) but figured he was just hanging out... in costume... ?

    Those sneaky film-makers!!! :P

  2. Well, it could prob be that they shout one or two scenes. But what i heard, from a couple of interviews, they have 10 weeks away from set in between New Moon and Eclipse. As Kristen starts shouting the runaways directly after New moon, and then 10 weeks later returns to start filming eclipse. At least that's what Kristen said in a recent interview as they wondered how she would have time to film The Runaways.

  3. OR they could be filming both right now and coming back to film BD?!?!
    I know it's a looong shot but a girl can dream :D

  4. Wait.. hold up..according to some other people I've talked to, they weren't going to film NM & Eclipse back to back. Not to mention the casting for Eclipse won't be until this summer. So I don't think they were filming those scenes. remember, there is going to be a different director. he might not like what was shot..

  5. Exactly, that's what i wanted to say. All doh, about the director issue. Summit Hasn't actually said that they will take a third director. If Wietz dose a good job, they'll maybe offer him the third as well? :o

  6. I had that thought myself. It would seem to make more sense to film them at the same time...

  7. Sorry about your house arrest!! They should be filming simultaneously!! So they don't look too much older. Eddy's not supposed to age:)!! nor Jacob. etc. Have fun stalking if you ever make bail:)))

  8. Do you think is possible?? It would be wrong!!! You know I read Twilight after I saw the movie and I noticed a lot of things they changed and didn't use and it's ok...but if they film in one movie these two books they're going to change a lot and maybe important things we would like to see aren't going to be there! I just hope that if they do this, at least try to be the most original with the book...I would love to see Edwards proposal and the war between them and Victoria...they should do this in one movie!!! do you think they will film Breaking Dawn?

  9. They can't be filming both at the same time. They haven't even announced who the director is for Eclipse yet. CW said it can't be him as NM will be in post production when filming for Eclipse starts.

    also, in regards to the pictures from the parking lot .. Jacob has long hair there .. So it can't be from Eclipse. My take on those pictures, was that they were filming the part where Jake and Bella are going to go on the bikes (hence the bikes on the back of Bella's truck) and she sees "the pack" (which neither of them know what is really going on w/ Sam at the time) jumping off the cliff. Remember, she pulls over and starts to run from her truck trying to stop them and Jake is laughing at her? Thats my explanation as to what was going on then .. IMO

  11. Ooo cool.
    Thanks for the juicy tid bit. True or not it's nice to keep up.
    It's not a bad idea to film them at the same time.

  12. Actually, if you think about it . . . if Summit HASN'T announced a director for 'Eclipse' yet, why can't it be Weitz???

    It makes PERFECT sense to film both NM and Eclipse NOW, since Eclipse's theatre release date is so soon after NM's.

    AND, get this - - what if Del Toro protege Bayona, who was the rumored Eclipse director, is actually the director for . . . BREAKING DAWN instead??!!!!!!!!!

    YESSSSSSSSS, a dream come true!
    I'd really hoped he'd direct BD b/c I think he'll do a good job with it.

    Guys, this makes TOTAL SENSE! Summit could be trying to pull a fast one and make it SEEM as if Eclipse will be filmed later, but how will Kristen film NM, The Runaways, and then Eclipse, and they'll still have time to get Eclipse out by June 2010??

    I could be wrong . . . but it just makes sense.

    YAY, if it's true! I agree with the aging thing - - gotta be careful.

  13. Darn it...so much for me "set stalking" next year. I already had it planned out.

  14. Well, I highly doubt they're filming both at the same time. Most, if not all, of the cast has on different occasions stated that there will be a break between filming New Moon and Eclipse. Peter said something about Eclipse being shot in the fall. I know some have other projects lined up for the break, like Kristen in The Runaways. Yes, and it's been repeated that Chris Weitx will be working on post-production on New Moon while Eclipse is being filmed, so a new director is needed. Who knows, maybe Catherine Hardwick will come back for the 3rd? That's be interesting: Catherine, Chris, Catherine, and maybe Chris again for BD? I've heard he's great with the fantastical and CGI so BD would be a good one for him. Just speculation...

  16. ack

  17. Just a thought...
    If there are only a few scenes in Eclipse that take place at the high school (inside or out in front), maybe they were just filming those scenes now for Eclipse, hoping that the new director likes them, and if he/she doesn't well then they will probably film them again, but maybe they thought while they have the set up for the high school they might as well film the few scenes that are in Eclipse? That way they don't have to go to the trouble for just one or two scenes while they really will be filming Eclipse...not to mention money and stuff, it's probably just better to do it now if it works out. I'm sure they are filming everything for Eclipse right now!

  18. hmm.. this is interesting...
    but i really don't think they are filming both right now. Cast members and such have never mentioned it so....

  19. ome!!! it does make sense!!! (fangirl squees and starts a forward message about it) now the question is... when will they release it?

    And I hope they film breaking dawn soon.

    plus, it makes sense. they are always talking about trying to keep the characters looking the same age, especially Rob... why not film them all at once? I hope they confirm this soon.

  20. Hi. I've never read your blog...and I'm really not much of a blog reader, but I AM obsessed with Twilight.
    I must say, the little videos you have on the sides (the hot kiss in the bedroom, the sexy ass kiss at prom and edward outside of the school)are some of my favorites (those specific parts). But I'm surprised you don't have my absolute fave...In the lunchroom at the salad bar. The apple drops, he catches it, and then he looks at her and says "Bella" with that crooked smile. I swear, i could watch him say "Bella" there a million times. Lol, so I thought it would be a great addition for you.

    Sorry so long.

  21. how will they film back to back with two different directors. also, do you know if they will be filming breaking dawn? I read that Stephanie meyer said she doesn't know how they will be making BD due to Renesme and CGI isn't that far yet to be able to construct the talking baby
