Official Word on ‘Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ Additional Shooting

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 the report, “creative differences” have not led Summit to consider bringing in another director for the reshoots.
David Slade is directing them, as he has the entire movie, and the studio is “very happy” with his direction of a film internally 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. A Summit rep tells Gossip Cop that it’s a two-and-a-half to three-day shoot, and that “very little” has to be reshot.
But the biggest misconception concerned the specific scenes alleged to be those in need of a reshoot. The Summit rep confirms to Gossip Cop, “None of the meadow or action scenes are being reshot.”

Asked to comment on today’s alarmist rumors, an authorized rep for the studio tells Gossip Cop, “Reports much like this one are ploys to drive traffic without any merit and without any support from the studio on what is actually going on or true.”

We were also told directly by Summit that this is officially confirmed.
