Trouble with Eclipse?

Rumors surfaced this morning on gossip blogger Lainey Gossip's website that 'Eclipse' is unfinished. According to her sources key scenes need to be re-shot (including the meadow and fight scenes) and the crew would be heading back to Vancouver for the shoots in the next few weeks. Most surprisingly of all, according to her contacts, David Slade would not be the director for the reshoots and that he had a 'not great' relationship with Summit.

Her site does contain some strong language so fair warning, you can read the rest of her article HERE

Obviously this news sent the fandom into a frenzy and Summit was contacted and asked for a statement. They revealed their statement via spokesperson to Gossip Cop:

“The reshoot was planned for months, like it is with the majority of films.” Contrary to today’s inaccurate speculation, “creative differences” have not led Summit to consider bringing in another director for the reshoots. David Slade is 100% directing them, like he did the entire movie, and the studio is “very happy” with his direction of the film. It’s a two-and-a-half to three-day shoot, and that “very little” actually has to be reshot. “None of the meadow or action scenes are being reshot.” “Reports much like the one earlier today are ploys to drive traffic without any merit and without any support from the studio on what is actually going on or true.”

As the Twilight Lexicon rightly pointed out:
"For those of you that know Twilight shooting history, you know that this is not the first time in the Twilight Saga franchise that reshoots have taken place. Catherine Hardwicke had to reshoot several key scenes months after filming in Portland had wrapped. Specifically Catherine shot the infamous meadow scene on a golf course in the LA area"

It seems like these are all rumors for now and Summit have denied any issues so what do YOU think? Are you worried about Eclipse? Are you excited to see it or nervous about how it will compare to the book? Let us know!

Thanks to the Twilight Lexicon

I have to say that this still leaves me uneasy. I feel like I purchased my tickets for New Moon way earlier than this and they're still not on sale for Eclipse. :( I hope it all works out well! Thanks for the information.

Thanks for commenting! It now looks like it is just pick ups and not full scenes which is encouraging! Eclipse tickets went on sale today in some states so fingers crossed we will get ours soon!
