Summit's Reaction to Eclipse Re-Shoot Drama

The close-knit Twilight community went dark yesterday, when an ugly rumor plagued their seemingly perfect world. If you are familiar with the book series, you are aware that author Stephenie Meyer created a magical and romantic setting in a meadow where Bella and Edward would go to be alone. When the rumors hit that those scenes were going to be altered fans reacted. To the Twilight fans, these rumors set fire to this whimsical place held sacred to them.

With that said, the wild spreading rumors did have some truth, though it was totally twisted and taken out of context. It is true that some of the main cast is being called back for re-shoots before the film goes to the street, but it is not as bad as the bullying bloggers made you believe. A rep from Summit Entertainment is setting the record straight, claiming "very little" needs to be altered before The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opens June 30th.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is set to open nationwide in two months. But before the film comes to the big screen some of the actors are being called back to Vancouver for re-shoots. Yesterday, the Twilight community experienced a bit of drama when bloggers ran with an untrue story about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart needing to re-shoot the meadow scene. A rep from Summit commented, "None of the meadow or action scenes are being reshot." Some also feared that the plot would deviate from the hit book series, which is completely untrue.

Adding fuel to the fire, bloggers went on to say that these re-shoots were unplanned misleading people to question the quality of the upcoming film. Once again, Summit spoke up to clear the air stating, "The reshoot was planned for months, like it is with the majority of films." With the re-shoot on the books, the only thing that is missing are the actors. The studio is feverishly working out scheduling details to get some of the cast members to Canada for a few days in order to clean up some scenes.
