Summit Eclipse Press Release & Cast List Reveals that I'm a Poser TwiCrack Addict


MSN Superfan shares the press release from Summit Entertainment about Eclipse.

My first reaction -- after absorbing Boo BOO's boo boo name: Where is Michael Sheen? Where is Jamie Campbell Bower?

Gasp. They are not *in* Eclipse. Have I become so blogging-obsessed that I forgot what actually happens in Eclipse? Dude, I need to re-read the book. Dang.

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.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE brings back members of the Quileute Indian Nation; the classmates of Bella and Edward; and the legendary Volturi, a venerable coven of vampires who weigh and impose the laws of the vampire world. A cast list for THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE appears at the end of this document.

In THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.

About the TWILIGHT film series
The TWILIGHT film series stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson and tells the story of 17-year-old Bella Swan who moves to the small town of Forks, Washington to live with her father, and becomes drawn to Edward Cullen, a pale, mysterious classmate who seems determined to push her away. But neither can deny the attraction that pulls them together…even when Edward confides that he and his family are vampires.

The action-packed, modern day vampire love story and blockbuster success TWILIGHT was released in theatres on November 21, 2008. The second installment of the film franchise, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: NEW MOON directed by Chris Weitz and starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, will be released November 20, 2009.

  1. Aro and Caius aren't in the Eclipse book! That's why they are missing.

  2. Yes, the Volturi send out their guard members to clean up situations like that :) (new born armies)
    Jane and Alec are there to make sure things don't get out of hand :)

  3. That's what I was fixing to say. In Eclipse, Aro and Caius never showed up. It was only Jane, Demetri and Felix that showed up at the clearing.

  12. @ShinyVolvoOwner, good catch - - so true!

  13. I am so glad to see Sarah Clarke as Renee Dwyer
    on the cast list!! I loved the part in the book where he brings up the tickets to her mom's which leads to Jacob asking Edward in the parking lot if that is why he took her half way around the world which leads to her finding out the Victoria is after her.

    That means some version of that should be in!

  14. What about Carmen and Tanya? Isn't it smart to introduce them in the Eclipse movie?

    If Breaking Dawn is ever made...I think that would make sense, that movie will probably be a character introduction overload as it is...

  15. The Cullens only talk to Carmen and Tanya on the phone they don't actually show up til Breaking Dawn.

  16. I concur, shinyvolvoowner!

    And don't beat yourself up TCA, I was thinking the same thing! You are not a fake Twi crack addict but just one who's memory sometimes fails her....like me! :)

  17. I don't remember Alec being part of the Volturi entourage during Eclipse. All I remember are Felix, Demetri and Jane.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I don't remember Alec either, but maybe I'm not a true TwiFan (gasp, the horror, it can't be true!)...PS, Seth will be played by someone named "BooBoo" -- is this for real? I can't even laugh, its too easy!
