Silly Speculation: Marc Malkin Dishes on Rachelle's Departure

P.S. E!Online's Marc Malkin gossips about why Rachelle was recast, which you can read in its entirety here.

Official reason is scheduling conflicts, but money may be a part of the problem, too...

First up, Lefevre got a hefty pay increase for the vampire franchise's third installment, according to sources.

Then she snagged a role in Barney's Version, an indie flick costarring Paul Giamatti, which she planned to film between the New Moon and upcoming Eclipse shoots.

But then, I'm told, Lefevre's Eclipse schedule with director David Slade was tweaked and overlapped with Barney's Version.

"Summit could have made it work," one source says. "But they saw that they could save a lot of money by recasting her. This could get really messy."

Eep.

  1. I'm sure there will be a lot of gossip surrounding this story!! Wander if we'll ever know the real reason for the change. Rachelle didn't seem to mention anything at Comic-con!! Wonder if this just fell through with her contracts?!!

  6. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh excrumentum!!!!!

    Follow the money. Follow the money.

    But, is Ron Howard's Little Girl going to play the part, for less than Rachelle was to get? Just to jump on the Twilight Bandwagon, perhaps? [Geee, I'm getting good/bad at this gossip stuff myself. Which is not something to be proud of]

    How can just-plain-fans find out the real story? How? How? How? How? How?

  8. It had nothing to do with money and everything to do with a little spoiled twit who was put in her place at Comic Con and pulled some low punches to get even. Nuff said. Rachelle we all love you and you know whats going to happen next. :)

    Dear , Summit Entertainment.
    I would like to discuss about Ms.Rachelle Lefevre being replaced by Ms.Bryce Dallas Howard.I and millions of Twihard's like me disagree with your decision about Rachelle being replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard.Summit please let Rachelle finish playing the role of her lovely character 'Victoria' for 'Eclispe' which fliming should start soon.We Twihard's are really bummed about this and the websites that i have visited today has plenty of rude , naughty comment about you.How rude that Summit Entertainment let Rachelle go to the Comic-Con and now replacing her for Ms.Bryce and so much more , not just that.And beacause what you , Summit Entertainment decide yesterday July 28 , 2009 about replacing Rachelle has caused millions of Twihard's on rejecting on seeing the flim 'Eclispe' and for what you decided.It has also caused millions of broken hearts and wish our lovely Rachelle Lefevre , our redheaded Victoria all the luck in the world with her career and will truly miss her in 'Eclispe' and hope to see her soon in the future in other movies.Do you want the obsess Twihard's to start a riot or something just because of our Twilight Rights?For Ms.Lefevre who caught our heart's and attetion.The perfect Victoria , ever!Please think about this decision that your willing to take.Think this through and slowly.just TODAY that this announce came out and published everywhere in the Internet has effected millions of Twihard's everywhere.Think about the obsessive (Twi)Crack fans and the Twilight fan base. , just beacause of Ms.Lefevre leaving the Twilight Saga has made Twihard's to decide willing not to watch 'Eclispe'.This is just the beginning , wait until the end.Yes , I do know were crazy.Each and everyone from the Twilight Cast has touched our heart , and this makes millions of proud Twihard's to have our heart's on our sleeve.This means ALOT to us and if this means litlte to you guys in Summit Entertainment , well you probably will be expecting a riot , many Twihard's coming at you , and i'm sure the Fan Base will be decrease somewhat.In behalf of the Twihard's.

  12. can anyone tell me if my letter is too harsh... its the paragraph below


    You have managed to piss off alot of Twilighters including me ... I don't understand how you could possibly believe for one second that you could recast an original cast member this late in the saga... to add to that you guys recasted her just before her character gets a larger and more nessecary part in the franchise. The fans that helped create this phenomenone, you call the twilight Saga are EXTREMELY pissed off... some have even planned to boycott eclipse. please tell me what Twilight would do with out their fans. I hope you have realized the mistake you have made. You have so carelessly dug a hole and put the franchise in it, along with summit. For every action there is a consequence, yours just happens to be a whole lot of pissed off fans who have dedicated themselves to supporting the Twilight saga, but when you decide to recast a huge character such as Victoria(who was portrayed amazingly by Rachelle) and ruin the feel of things, you screw us fans over...well as surprising as you currnet idiotic mind might take it we don't take being screwed over very well. Therefore i am going to nicely ask you to please work something out with Rachelle and get her back to play Victoria in eclipse...PLEASE!! :D
