Eclipse Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart in The Twilight Saga Eclipse. article story main 280x186 HitFix: Twilight Saga: Eclipse Doing Pickups With David Slade, Not Reshoots must see eclipse news david slade More information is coming in from our Twilight Saga Drama Filled Wednesday! HitFix.com has now released information in regards to the supposed reshoot of certain Eclipse scenes that we previously reported -

Rumors and gossip have followed the “Twilight Saga” ever since the first film created an uproar at the box office a year and a half ago.  From the personal relationship between the stars to who will direct which sequel, it’s been a non-stop job for Summit Entertainment to put out one fire after another.  That continued today.

This morning Canadian gossip site Lainey Gossip reported that reshoots of two key scenes for the forthcoming “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” were occurring in Vancouver next week.  The pundit also floated that because of “creative differences” with the studio director David Slade wouldn’t oversee the reshoots and that former helmers Catherine Hardwicke (“Twilight”) and Chris Weitz (“New Moon”) could step in instead.  Because the outlet is based in the city and has been correct on a number stories regarding the franchise before, many media took the report with a hint of credibility which was a mistake.

HitFix has learned that Slade, who is currently overseeing the film’s score in London, would be headed to Vancouver himself to film what are obvstentively pick up shots, not reshot scenes. Pick up shots are cut into already completed scenes and can be necessary because of anything from bad lighting, a faulty print or a missing expression or line that was determined in editing.  Reshoots insinuate a completely new scene being inserted into a picture.

Additionally, a Summit spokesperson told HitFix that the shoot has been planned for months, the picture is not in “trouble” and, in fact, the studio thinks it may be the best of the three so far. Considering, this writer has heard praise for “Eclipse’s” script, that’s easy to believe. The spokesperson also noted that reshoot timing is three days or less, is not a lot of material and furthermore, they do not involve the meadow scene or any action scenes whatsoever.

Fans will be able to decide their opinion on Slade’s vision for “Eclipse” when the film opens nationwide on June 30.

The above information is quite similar to what we reported from Gossip Cop earlier.

VaLaineyMort = EPIC fail!

  • Wolfi ♥(TEAM LEAH &TOMBAH)

    My fave Book will def be my fave movie!!!!…..

    i think it will be the best out of the three and not because Leah is in it.. that part of the reason, but mainly because its a great book, and am loving DS's style. even tho i still believe CW is a DILF

  • leahreallyitis

    oh that is my favorite song:) I saw the play CATS along time ago and it was good:)

  • leahreallyitis

    woo hoo YEAH TEAM EDWARD/ROB! the man is a GOD

  • leahreallyitis

    now it's 75 days, 3hrs, and 20mins in counting LOL

    I'd rather get my hopes up than have low expectations, honestly.

    I know that it's not going to be perfect. But there were bright spots in the first two films of the saga. Sure, it's not gonna be all good, but it's gonna be decent at least.

    My thing is, Rob, Kristen, Taylor, and the rest of the twicast are golden to me. They will carry the film, no matter who directs or who “writes” the script. I believe in them so I'll believe in Eclipse.

  • Lu :) SPIDERFLIPPY = LOVE.

    Oh dear. I had a dream I was watching breaking dawn. They were just about to get down to it on their honeymoon then jacob jumped in between them. It was awful. Completely ruined the moment. LOL

  • enviro

    Yeah, it's annoying when people seem to make stuff up (CH directing?? come on), but I don't have much patience for people who just take the studio's word for it either. If we see Rob and Kristen on a plane to Vancouver, I don't care what they call it, something major is up.

  • enviro

    This guy is making stuff up and shilling for Summit. Sorry. I'm not saying the original blogger was right (no need for names, right? :) ), but just buying the studio's line (anonymous at that) hook, line and sinker? Also BS. I think the movie is going to be great. Way to much Robward for it to be bad, am I right? But they could easily be reshooting or whatever — and more power to them, if they need to. I just don't personally see a ton of journalism going on here.

  • enviro

    She is the canadian pundit mentioned in the HitFix piece. She's a gossip blogger. I've never read anything of hers that wasn't on this site, but from what I can glean, she's a Kristen fan but doesn't like Rob.

  • enviro

    This guy is not a whole lot better than the original blogger to me. Buying into the studio's (anonymous!) spin is not journalism any more than printing rumors is. I'm glad to hear you guys remember stuff like this from before Twilight, because I liked that movie, as far as I'm concerned albeit it was flawed it turned out well. So maybe this is not cause for huge concern. Because I for one thought that two months before New Moon (September!) it was DONE. Put a ribbon on it, filming Eclipse thank you very much. So I would ordinarily wonder whether they can do a good job going back for reshoots or whatever you want to call it at this late date.

    Bottom line: if Kristen and Rob go to Seattle, I really will start wondering if they will move back the release date. And they should if they need to! The important thing is that the movie be good, and I think it will be (waves old-fashioned Team Edward flag).

  • enviro

    Hi there — sorry to be so clueless — what does DILF mean?

    And speaking of Leah — time to get to filming BD people, oh yeah that!

  • enviro

    Gee breesmom you don't ask for much LOL! Entire cast in attendance, 5 day long party . . . how about a pony??? With this cast and the base story, I don't see how it can be bad. I'm one who likes to keep expectations low and be pleasantly surprised . . . and you know you are totally right . . . it almost certainly won't be perfect but we will enjoy the heck out of it, the spectacle, the promo stuff, all of it. :) And then have it on DVD to enjoy on a quiet evening. I'm thinking of watching the first one tonight myself!

  • enviro

    Well hon the fandom has gotten way bigger because of these movies and the quality of the books. My DH bought the books after seeing the first movie and I started reading them after he did (and teasing him for it I might add). Then after reading the first 2 I watched Twilight on demand and was totally hooked. There is something great about this series! It's not a trend, a fad, or a cult . . . I think the LA Times called it a pop phenomenon and I think that is fair. It's not great literature, but it is a story that resonates with a huge number of people and has clearly touched a nerve. Don't know if this makes any sense or responds right to you but that's how it feels to me.

  • Wolfi ♥(TEAM LEAH &TOMBAH)

    hahaha!!..have you ever heard of the saying MILF????

    well this is the male version DILF… daddy i'd like to F****

  • enviro

    So . . . you don't like her? Have pity on me, I'm 42. :P

  • Wolfi ♥(TEAM LEAH &TOMBAH)

    find who attractive??… Chris Weitz… i think he is Effing HOT!!.. i nearly dry humped him when i saw him… loool

  • MABS(TeamAshleyGreene)

    I wish I was going to MIA with yall.

  • Breesmom~team Bel-Ami Rob

    LOL

    I do have a party all lined up but the cast? They'll be on the IMAX screen…

  • Breesmom~team Bel-Ami Rob

    I do, too, MABs.

  • MABS(TeamAshleyGreene)

    The cast is keeping my pockets empty. I now planning a trip up to Shreveport. Ashley is filming “Butter”.

  • teamvamp88
  • CC; Team Bootypest

    Your avi is amazing.

  • Hitchy

    I'm glad you said it…. because that's exactly what I was thinking!

  • dracodarling

    Yeah, it has been a while. I normally lurk in the shadows!! HE HE HE HE…

  • dracodarling

    I have seen so many Broadway show.. I am a fanatic about show tunes!! Just can't sing worth crap.. LOL

  • TeamLoca ♥Official Switz Girl♥

    OMG, I'm like crying because I was laughing so hard!! I needed that laugh :)

  • RUN W/ VAMPIRES! <3 Cullen1212

    ahahahaha sometimes i say … TEAM CROOKED SMILE ! :D LOLZ

  • http://www.twitter.com/alywilson3 TheHoneyBear

    I've lowered my expectations so much… plus, I've decided to not re-read Eclipse, because that will take out the excitement and anticipation for the movie. (well for me)

    But this is just me, tho.

  • rileys_girl

    haha yeah i agree about all the trouble they will have making BD. oh well, i guess the movies are just a visual representation of the books, nothing will really ever compare to them :)

  • enviro

    OMG, you are going to crack up — somehow I read CH not CW! I was like, you find Catherine Hardwicke attractive? CH on the brain from the rumors I guess! CW sure makes a lot more sense!! Whew.

  • Team Switzerland in PA

    Not to get everyone upset again, but with the volcano erupting in Iceland and flights canceled in London, will David Slade be able to come to Vancouver to do the pick up shots? Aren't Robert and Kristen also in London and would have the same problem?

  • cosmogirl21 <3 my Twisters

    Hahaha, I know right? I thought that part was hilarious. So funny. I need to watch it again b/c I could really use another laugh… some people from another post are getting all huffidy b/c I said that BD should be rated R and Stephenie should get over it, lol, I didn't know I couldn't state my opinion, haha. Grrrr. *pushes play again on youtube parody* Ahhh much better now :-)

  • Aimzz

    Just to let everyone know tix for eclipse went on sale in australia yesterday for the midnight showings and i managed to score mine YAY!!!

  • TeamLoca ♥Official Switz Girl♥

    Yeah, bigtime. I usually steer clear of BD or Robsten because I've found that if an opinion strays from the majority, riots are likely to ensue, lol :)

  • cosmogirl21 <3 my Twisters

    Haha, yeah I know what you mean. You can almost guarantee things like that
    to happen on here. Happened to me before, lol, not fun.
