The recasting of Victoria in Eclipse has quickly turned into quite the debate, with Rachelle LeFevre being replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard.

Summit has just issued a press release in response to the statement that Rachelle LeFevre issued earlier today concerning the casting of Victoria.

We at Summit Entertainment are disappointed by Rachelle Lefevre’s recent comments which attempt to make her career choices the fault of the Studio. Her decision to discuss her version of the scheduling challenges publicly has forced the Studio to set the record straight and correct the facts.

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.

Go ahead, it's free information, we don't own claim to it.

So which one is Lying? Rachelle or Summit?

She said that she took the "Barney" Role, not knowing it would conflict with the Eclipse schedule.

Who do we trust? Is it Summit, that says she withheld the Barney's thing to the last moment. And that Rachelle was not telling the truth when she said she didn't know?

Or is it Rachelle, who said she was not informed of the fact that she was being replaced, let alone that her schedule messed anything in her filming up?

I wonder if Rachelle is going to be silent after Summit's response, or if there's going to be some back and forth.

♥BookGeek♥ (BookN) | 781 comments If Summit lies, then she should be really mad. That's embarrassing and humiliating if they did lie.

I doubt Summit was trying to make us feel better, there was no comforting language in that statement. It sounded more defensive than anything else.
