Follow Up Report:Real-Life 'Twilight' Saga: Studio vs. Vampire

Heres a specific point-by-point rebuttal Summit said Wednesday that:

* Ms. Lefevre'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 Summit was first informed of Ms. Lefevre’s 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 filmmaker 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.

There has been no response so far by Lefevre or her representatives to Summit's statement

This latest "Twilight" drama comes just days after stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner made an widely anticipated appearance at Comic-Con 2009 in San Diego, where "New Moon" clips where shown to the fevered fans.

It is, however, is not the first time a Twilighter has bitten the dust ... or come close.

.... it is the first time a twilight member has been recast...? regardless, i stand with summit. i think rachelle was acting selfishly and unprofessional. she put herself above everyone else when she decided it wasn't important for her to be there when she had committed to being there, whether for ten days or one.

I wonder how KS and RP feel about you calling them self and unprofessional? Their movie shoots (as well as other actors' movie work) have required much more accommodation from Summit than Rachelle's puny 10-day shoot.

Summit is adding to their problems by first dumping Rachelle on a trumped-up pretext and then blaming her for simply standing up for herself and telling the truth of the story as she sees it.

And Twilight fans that meekly accept this poor treatment from Summit will only ensure that Summit has no reason not to pull this b******* with other Twilight actors.
