IMDB has updated the movie ‘Girlfriend’ in which Jackson wil star and produce in. I am really curious to see what this movie is about, but since the movie is not even in pre-production, there is no desciption to what the movie is about. Instead it states that the movie can always ‘change’. Check out the website here!
E! News has a new article that questions whether or not Rachelle Lefevre will help to promote New Moon once November comes. Here is what they said:
First up, Lefevre has already done some advance work, including a photo spread in a major women’s magazine with vampiring costars Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz.
"They waited until all of the long-lead stuff was done before making a move," an insider says of Summit’s announcement earlier this week that Lefevre was being pushed aside to make room for Bryce Dallas Howard in Eclipse.
As for doing media closer to the November release date of the flick, several insiders tell me they’re not sure what will happen…
Will Lefevre play nice and not talk trash about Summit? Or will she ask to be excused to avoid the inevitable and uncomfortable questions about being canned.
'Twilight' Screenwriter Reveals One Of Rachelle Lefevre's Final Scenes
MTV did a recent interview with screenwriter, Melissa Rosenberg. She revealed a scene that will come up of Victoria in ‘New Moon’.
"There is something I just love with Victoria," Rosenberg told us at Comic-Con, discussing her script for November’s "New Moon." "It’s very fun to write the evil vampires — or it was fun to write James."
With Cam Gigandet’s ruthless tracker gone for the sequel, Rosenberg instead found herself sinking her screenwriting teeth into Lefevre’s vengeance-minded vamp. “In the book, that was about Bella’s point of view,” she explained, admitting that keeping the events of the “Twilight” films to what Kristen Stewart’s character can see is a difficult task. “You can’t violate that to see what Victoria is up to.”
New series director Chris Weitz, however, gave Rosenberg permission to get away from Bella’s point of view a few times — most notably in a scene where we’ll get a glimpse of the evil vampire’s road trip. “I was able to explore what Victoria was up to,” Rosenberg revealed. “And at one point, we cut away to Victoria driving really fast in a car.”
She also says that during the car scene, she takes a snack with her, which is a human.
"She took a snack with her," laughed Rosenberg, making reference to Victoria’s latest victim. "And she’s reminiscing about her days with James. I loved writing that scene."
Nikki Reed did a recent interview with People and was asked about the whole Rachelle being replaced drama.
With news still fresh on Lefevre being replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard in Eclipse, the third film of the popular series, Reed, who plays vampire Rosalie Hale, tells PEOPLE she hasn’t “talked to [Lefevere] yet.” “I don’t know anything about it other than a schedule conflict,” said Reed at the Express TXT L8TR Campaign party at Nobu in West Hollywood Wednesday night – the same day the news broke of the switch.
Also, when asked about why girls are so attracted to the hunky Robert Pattinson, she responed by saying:
“Rob is sort of feminine looking and I think young girls like boys that look like women,” she said.
Umm, Nikki I don’t really think thats the reason why so much of us like him…
—A key Summit player’s response when we asked if the Twitter petition Twilight fans are waging in an effort to save fired Rachelle Lefevre in her role as Victoria would get her reinstated.
Clearly, Lefevre’s attempt to get time off from her Eclipse duties to do another film, Barney’s Version, did not go over well. Lefevre’s side of the battling story, as our colleague Marc Malkin scooped, states plainly it’s Summit just trying to get out of paying her upped salary for the third installment in the Twilight saga.
On the other corporate bitchy hand, Summit claims Lefevre withheld notification about doing the film (which has a conflicting shoot schedule) and is being “uncooperative” as a result.
Well, that’s just what Summit’s saying on the record.
What are those involved in the studio fracas saying privately?
"Rachelle, to her credit, drew the first blood," bitched a key player involved in the nasty situation. "So no matter what Summit says, they look like the bad guy."
We want to do everything in our power to change Summit’s mind (or at least attempt). I have a number for Summit as well as an address that you can mail them. Hopefully, in the next while, we can track down an e-mail address.

Summit Entertainment Response to Rachelle Lefevre comments
*source twilightsource.com Here it is, from top to bottom. For a better understanding, please first read Rachelle’s statement about leaving the franchise. The following is from Summit:
We at Summit Entertainment are disappointed by Ms. Lefevre’s recent comments which attempt to make her career choices the fault of the Studio. Her decision to discuss her version of the scheduling challenges publicly has forced the Studio to set the record straight and correct the facts.
- Ms. Lafevre’s representatives were advised as early as April that THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE was expected to start shooting in early August.
- If Ms. Lefevre was, as she describes “passionate,” about being part of THE TWILIGHT SAGA, we feel that she and her representatives would have included us in her decision to work on another film that would conflict with the shooting schedule of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE .
- It was not until July 20th that we were first informed of her commitment to BARNEY’S VERSION, a commitment we have since been advised she accepted in early June. Summit had acted in good faith that she would be available to fulfill her obligations both in terms of rehearsals and shooting availability for THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE. We feel that her choice to withhold her scheduling conflict information from us can be viewed as a lack of cooperative spirit which affected the entire production.
- Furthermore Ms. Lefevre took a role in the other film that places her in Europe during the required rehearsal time, and at least ten days of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE’s principal photography. This period is essential for both rehearsal time with the cast, and for filming at key locations that are only available during the initial part of production.
- Contrary to Ms. Lefevre’s statement, it is simply untrue that the Studio dismissed her over a ten day overlap. It is not about a ten day overlap but instead about the fact that THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE is an ensemble production that has to accommodate the schedules of numerous actors while respecting the established creative vision of the filmmakers and most importantly the story.
The fact remains that Ms. Lefevre’s commitment to the other project – which she chose to withhold from Summit until the last possible moment – makes her unfortunately unavailable to perform the role of Victoria in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE.
Rachelle Lefevre replaced because of money problems?
E! Online has the scoop:
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."
Because Summit could try to argue that they no longer have to pay Ms. Lefevre. However, Lefevre’s team believes she should get her money because they feel the studio is the one who caused the trouble by changing the shoot schedule.
If this is true I wouldn’t be supprised because from passed problems Summit always has a specific bugdet in mind that does not give enough support. To read more go here!
"We just all sit there, completely naked, for one scene," revealed "New Moon" actor Jamie Campbell Bower, talking about a racy moment that was added into the upcoming film. “Yeah, it’s me, Michael Sheen and Christopher [Heyerdahl]; we just sit there, naked.”
"We’re just chilling out, just watching the game and having a Bud," Bower laughed of the scene, which depicts Carlisle hanging with the Volturi back in the day. "No, that doesn’t sound right. I’m so British. I can’t say that stuff."
In actuality, the scene has a fully clothed Carlisle visiting the Volturi in Italy, only to locate Aro, Caius and Marcus in a bathhouse. “It’s a full-body shot, and then Peter comes in, and it all gets a bit awkward,” Bower said. “[Carlisle] is clothed completely. They’re bathing in sort of a Roman bath kind of thing.”
Access Hollywood got to sit down with Rachelle and this is the interview:
“I was stunned by Summit’s decision to recast the role of Victoria for ‘Eclipse,’” Rachelle said in a statement to Access Hollywood.
On Tuesday, Summit announced that Bryce Dallas Howard would be taking on the role in “Eclipse,” due in May 2010.
“I was fully committed to the ‘Twilight’ saga, and to the portrayal of Victoria,” Rachelle continued, explaining the turn of events that led to the casting change. “I turned down several other film opportunities and, in accordance with my contractual rights, accepted only roles that would involve very short shooting schedules. My commitment to ‘Barney’s Version’ is only ten days. Summit picked up my option for ‘Eclipse.’ Although the production schedule for ‘Eclipse’ is over three months long, Summit said they had a conflict during those ten days and would not accommodate me. Given the length of filming for ‘Eclipse,’ never did I fathom I would lose the role over a 10 day overlap. I was happy with my contract with Summit and was fully prepared to continue to honor it. Summit chose simply to recast the part.”
She also ended the interview with this statement:
“I am greatly saddened that I will not get to complete my portrayal of Victoria for the ‘Twilight’ audience. This is a story, a theatrical journey and a character that I truly love and about which I am very passionate. I will be forever grateful to the fan support and loyalty I’ve received since being cast for this role, and I am hurt deeply by Summit’s surprising decision to move on without me. I wish the cast and crew of ‘Eclipse’ only the very best,” she said.
