OME - Eclipse Reshoots?!

Update: GossipCop - my hero!

A report widely disseminated earlier today made big waves by claiming that “key scenes” in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse need to be reshot in Vancouver, and speculated that the development indicated production on the June release was troubled.

Gossip Cop looked into it, and we have the exclusive answers.First, regarding the implication that these reshoots were unexpected, an authorized rep for the studio tells Gossip Cop, “The reshoot was planned for months, like it is with the majority of films.”

Let Gossip Cop settle some other false rumors.Contrary to today’s inaccurate speculation, “creative differences” have not led Summit to consider bringing in another director for the reshoots.

David Slade is 100% directing them, like he did the entire movie, and the studio is “very happy” with his direction of the film, which internally is believed to be the best of the series.

As for the timing, speculation that there will be three rushed days of 18-hour shoots is incorrect. The Summit rep tells Gossip Cop that it’s a two-and-a-half to three-day shoot, and that “very little” actually has to be reshot.

But the biggest misconception concerned the specific scenes alleged to be those in need of a reshoot. The rep confirms to Gossip Cop, “None of the meadow or action scenes are being reshot.”

Asked to comment on today’s alarmist rumors, the authorized rep for the studio tells Gossip Cop, “Reports much like the one earlier today are ploys to drive traffic without any merit and without any support from the studio on what is actually going on or true.”


Speed post:

Lol, is this a bad choice of image?

According to Lainey:

Exclusive

Twilight Eclipse
opens in June. But the film isn’t ready yet.

Multiple sources have confirmed to me that some key scenes need to be reshot including footage between “Bella” and “Edward” in the meadow and a few fight sequences. They’ve been waiting for weeks to confirm dates but have had to work around Robert Pattinson’s schedule. Originally they needed 7 days but now, due to his other commitments, it’s been proposed that they work for 3 days with the crew putting in 18 hours each day. This should happen in Vancouver in the new few weeks.

What’s more interesting is WHO would actually direct the reshoot. David Slade is the director for Eclipse. But I’m told that apparently David Slade’s relationship with Summit has been... not great. Creative differences. At one point things had supposedly deteriorated to the point that they were actually considering hiring someone else to reshoot in Vancouver. Some of the names tossed around? Chris Weitz and Catherine Hardwicke. Hardwicke is in Vancouver working on another new film to go in the summer. They’re looking at delaying that project and Hardwicke has been spotted undercover checking out studio and location space for the
Eclipse reshoot.

Having said that, Slade and Summit are now communicating on better terms. And there is still a good possibility he could come back to Vancouver to complete his film. As of Monday, no final decision about a director had been made. Will keep you posted.

Duuuuuuude!

  10. Pleeeease don't mess up Eclipse, I'm really scared now :( At least they are fixing the scenes I guess. I remember when Slade said, "Adding more Edward"...they shouldn't have to add more, he was in Eclipse just as much as everyone else >.> I really hope this doesn't get messed up. *Keeping my fingers crossed and trying to stay positive*

    Trying to stay positive as well. Dear Scummit, please don't hire back crazy Cathy. She did already ruin one meadow scene ( which in your version took place in the woods, but I digress.). I will happily "fix" whatever is wrong for a small fee and lots of casting couch time with the Precious. Eclipse is my favorite book, do NOT freck it up!!!!

  13. Im not even looking foward to this movie I was so disapointed w new moon I really don't care what director does it. I really wish these were silent movies and some1 would just read the book out loud in the theater scene by scene LOL!

  14. First of all a huge "Thank You" to CH for bringing us Rob & Kristen The most perfect Edward Cullen & Bella Swan ever!! But lets just stick with David Slade, Summit. I think the trailer and the exclusive scene looked really good! And besides, a lot of the time you hear about directors having to re shoot scenes and such and maybe Lainey is exaggerating the whole DS and Summit feud (I hope so).

    But, it does leave me feeling a little nervous...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Catherine AND Chris sucked, let's hope Dave is great and I hope he will shoot the reshoots, otherwise the movie may be partly different then the rest of the movie...

  17. YaY!!! It looks like most of it is a rumor, thank goodness ^.^ They are having to reshoot some, but it doesn't seem like key scenes. Just have a lot of Edward, that sounds good ;)

  18. From what I can tell, the rumors actually proved to be true, for the most part. It is actually confirmed that reshoots are happening, it is a 3 day shoot, the only thing that is false is regarding which scenes are being reshot. And of course the studio won't disclose any possible disputes with the director, so that's still in the air. But the fact that they did replace his editor tells us something obviously wasn't right on that front.
    Anyway, I just hope they're not messing with Slade's vision, that couldn't be good.

  19. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!THEY CANT DO THIS!!!!! IF THEY DELAY IT, I DONT KNOW HOW IM GONNA GO ON LIVING!!!!!!! IVE BEEN WAITING TO LONG FOR THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!!!! >:(

  20. if they choose a different director to do the re-shoot, those scenes are obviously not going to have the same feel as the rest of the movie. and as far as having to push the release date back...they better not have to!!
