Bryce Dallas Howard is replacing Rachele Lefevre as the character of Victoria in the third installment of the super-popular vampire romance franchise. Howard is joining the cast of "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse."
Lefevre starred as Victoria in the first film "Twilight" and will be appearing in the upcoming sequel "New Moon." Why is the actress leaving the franchise? Summit says...scheduling conflicts.
"Twilight's" main cast members Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are starring in other movies while working on the series and they've never encountered scheduling conflicts.
And why would Lefevre leave a franchise as big as "Twilight?"
Oh yeah, and why would Summit hire a bigger, and perhaps a more accomplished star, to replace Lefevre?
Just between us, I thought Lefevre's performance in the first movie was a bit off (but I blamed the poor characterization), so maybe Summit is just now catching up?
"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" is set to start shooting in Vancouver in August from director David Slade, and is set for release on June 30, 2010.
