Summit Counters Lefevre's Comments Over Recasting Issue

And the plot thickens...Summit Entertainment has issued a statement on Rachelle Lefevre's thoughts on the Eclipse recast move:

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.

    *Blood boils* Summit threw a stone on a calm river. Now the ripples are here!!! They don't know the meaning of continuity! I hate changes in a movie wherein you're so attached to the actor who's portraying the character. Remember Richard Harris in HP? It's so sad that he died.

    I can't suck this one up because Summit is the one who sucks! *end of rant*

    And Summit does it again! It's like Catherine-Taylor incident over again!

    As a huge and dedicated fan of the Saga and the adaptation, I am really saddened by their judgements. Rachelle did her part well and she did give life to Victoria's character. Is this about money issues again? I mean, come on! How greedy can you guys get?? Rachelle did her share for the franchise and I think she deserves (actually, everyone of them deserve) a better treatment than this.

    If this can happen to Catherine, Rachelle, and sort of with Taylor, what more with the others?? The next thing you know, they'll be replacing everyone else!

    Ugh! I apologize. I just feel so violated for Rachelle Leferve.

    I think if Rachelle knew that she might be replaced because of that 10-day absence from Eclipse, I think she might have given up the other project she was committed to and give priority to Eclipse.

    But, obviously, she had no idea and Summit did this. It sucks big time, really.

    Perhaps Summit should've talked first with Rachelle. Why the eff did they not talk with her about this?!?!

    Thanks Meann for sharing. This is getting out of hand.

    The worst thing about this, i think, is that they did it after Rachelle did all the publicity for New Moon at Comic Con. That's just mean and nasty, if you ask me.

    Seriously Summit WHAT were you THINKING?! Replacing Rachel with Bryce Dallas Howard is so upsetting to us fans. Rachel has always said that she is committed to the project and I could never imagine another Victoria other than her. She makes Victoria evil yet sexy and dangerous. Gosh, please think this through!

    Neoooow!!! Rachelle Lefevre is like my girl crush. :'(

    She IS Victoria. Stupid, stupid, stupid move, Summit. But I don't think they care since they know that even without majority of the original cast members, hoards of people would still watch Twilight.
