Twilight 3 – Sequel Plans21.11.09 # Sequel # 16 Comments
There’s been a lot of Twilight 3 talk in the last few weeks, so what has been said and when can you expect it?
The official synopsis for The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (Twilight 3) goes like this: ‘Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) have been reunited, but their forbidden relationship is threatened to be torn apart again with an evil vampire still seeking her revenge. And Bella is forced to choose between her true love for Edward or her friendship with Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) as the struggles between vampires and werewolves continues. But there is still another choice for Bella to make, mortality or immortality?’
How long will you have to wait for Twilight 3? Not long at all. In fact, they’ve already finished filming it – principle photography was completed on October 29th. The movie is scheduled to open Wednesday, June 30, 2010.
Twilight and New Moon screenwriter Michelle Rosenberg wrote the script and the movie is directed by David Slade, who obviously got chosen because he’d directed a teen in Hard Candy and vampires in 30 Days of Night. It’s still an odd choice, he doesn’t strike me as the perfect director to get in touch with his feminine side.
The big controversy though surrounds Bryce Dallas Howard replacing Rachelle Lefevre as Victoria. Production company Summit claim the change was due to scheduling conflicts, but Lefevre responded that she was “stunned” and “greatly saddened” by the decision. I don’t believe Summit for one moment. They tried to get rid of Taylor Lautner after the first movie to bring in a bigger name for New Moon, and on that occasion were seemingly only stopped by the fan outcry.
So what do you want to see happen in Twilight 3? Should Rachelle Lefevre have stayed as Victoria or did they need a more experienced actress for the bigger role? Leave your comments below.
