The official Twilight Twitter sent out the following message:
This is SOOOO exciting. Can’t wait!
From Gossip Cop:
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.”
Comcast released the the New Moon Movie and directors commentary back in March to their subscribers at midnight on the release date, which was pretty cool. However, for Eclipse, it is reported that they are creating a 4-part cast series for the upcoming June 30th release of the film. The Examiner has reported the following:
For the June theatrical release of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, though, it seems the company is taking its marketing a step further by making a series dedicated to the Twilight cast.
According to Television Business International, the company “is shopping its content-making skills to international broadcasters for the first time in an effort to better use the resources of its two US-based production units” and already “produce[s] 1100 hours of programming a year.”
Comcast “is currently making a 4x30mins series following the main actors in the Twilight movie franchise, which will be turned around for early June to coincide with the launch of the new Twilight movie,” the site reports.
I will definitely watch this… as long as it’s done tactfully.
