Rachelle Lefevre vs. Summit: Call In the Lawyers! --Gettin' ugly!!!

Rachelle Lefevre and Summit Entertainment's fangs are retracting a little bit today—at least in public, that is.

I'm told the actress formerly known as Twilight's Victoria isn't planning on releasing any more statements like the one she sent me yesterday. Same for Summit—the corporate lips are sealed.

Why? Because now the bloody mess is apparently being hashed out by lawyers.

What's on the table? Read on to find out…

In short, Lefevre wants her money. Summit is arguing she's due nothing because the studio insists she's in breach of contract for signing on for the indie flick Barney's Version.

"Rachelle's contract says she's allowed to do smaller projects like Barney's Version," one source said.

Meanwhile, her Twilight and New Moon costars are "devastated," said another source. "As nice and lovely as Bryce [Dallas Howard] is, they feel like a family member has been taken from them."

But don't expect them to go public with too much anti-Summit talk. As my gossiping cohorts over at The Awful Truth point out, Lefevre's dismissal sends a very strong message—or warning—not to mess with the studio.

Sources also tell me that shortly after Summit announced Lefevre's dismissal, the rest of the cast was told not to elaborate on the circumstances to the media, beyond repeating that it was due to a scheduling conflict.

"But that was before the Rachelle and Summit statements yesterday," a Twilight insider said. "Who knows what they'll ask them to say now."


In my thoughts, I think this is going to get nasty cause it looks like Rachelle is not giving up w/o a fight!
Even the cast wants Rachelle to say...
Something is bound to happen!
It might be for the better or worse!

I hope the suits can negotiate things out. *crosses fingers* I'd really like for this to be over and have everyone happy again. And when I say "everyone" I mostly mean "me". I need Rachelle back...so I can get some work done and just obsess over my silly stuff like "Are Kristen and Rob wearing the same socks!". *wink*

Summit wouldn't dare get rid of anyone else! There are already millions of twifans sharpening their pitchforks and getting out their boycotting gear after this. I am personally thinking about waiting until Eclipse comes out on dvd to rent it. They are really going to regret this and i think it is going to show when the movie comes out for review.

Does anyone know who the lawyers are? We could share our opinions of the prejudcial--I was hoping this term would come into play--actions by Summit against Rachelle, and our observations of other actors working in movie shoots of other movies with the Twilight series.

Spunk, boycotts can be incredibly effective, but need to be big to make an impact. If it comes to it, perhaps we could put up a real survey (I construct surveys as part of what I do, and know how to form questions that lead to credible insights into repsondents' behavior or beliefs) to see how many Twifans would REALLY be likely to boycott.

Even if no one else does, I'm pretty turned off on NM now because of Summit's antics. So it would be easy for me to boycott it until Netflix has it for rent.

I don't think she got the part back. Summit is icecold. So sad.
