Eclipse Auditions

March 1, 2009

There have been rumors circulating that Drew Barrymore will be directing the third installment of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Series. These rumors are false. Due to the New Moon post-production schedule for director Chris Weitz, his brother and co-owner of “Depth of Field Productions” – Paul Weitz – will be directing Eclipse.

Summit Entertainment has started production for the sequel to Twilight, New Moon, based on Stephenie Meyer’s second book in the series. Eclipse will NOT be filmed back-to-back with New Moon, and there will be completely separate casting cycle. On Sunday, December 7th, Summit Entertainment did confirm that Catherine Hardwicke will not direct the films New Moon or Eclipse, and Chris Weitz had signed on to replace her for New Moon. Filming begins on New Moon on March 23, 2009.

Auditions and open casting calls for Eclipse will be posted here. The release date for Eclipse has been announced as Wednesday, June 30, 2010.

    If there’s anyone that will be replacing Taylor Lautner it should be Steven Strait!!! Not only is he gorgeous, but also because of the description from the book of the transformation Jacob goes through.I love Twilight, and Im a huge fan of Stephanie Meyer. I was on her website where she said Taylor Lautner would return, but Paul Weitz(the new director) was questioning whether he would even be good for the part. For me, as a fan I like the fact that Taylor was in Twilight, but the sequel he transforms and I just couldn’t picture Taylor going up against Edward, if you want it to look good and realalistic choose Steven, that way the audience can be torn between picking which one they think Bella should be with. Of course it should be Edward(Pattinson), but if he goes up against Jacob (Lautner), its going to make it to obvious. Pick a actor thats not only equally as gorgeous as Pattinson, but maybe even more. You should want people to watch the movie and have them torn between picking who Bella(Stewart) should be with, without stating the obvious. It would only make for good entertainment and a DAMN good movie. Pick Steven Strait.
