Twilight fans beware — Victoria might have the power of evasion… but she'll have a totally different look in the third installment of the film, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, which begins filming in Vancouver next month.
Summit Entertainment just confirmed to J-14 minutes ago that Rachelle Lefevre will NOT be returning to film the third chapter of the film series.
Instead, the Golden Globe-nominated star of Terminator Salvation and Spider-Man 3, Bryce Dallas Howard, will take over the role. Rachelle was unable to continue the role due to scheduling conflicts with another commitment.
The character of Victoria is more prominent in Eclipse, as she creates an army of newborn vampires that the Cullens must take down.
The official description of the movie reads: "In The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob – knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life."
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will open in theaters on June 30, 2010.
