Insiders say Eclipse will be doing some re-shoots in Vancouver.
Some believe "meadow" re-shoots, which would make sense since it was recently said that the Eclipse editor was replaced and that the cut they had been working on lacked "love story".
Many hope it's close-up's on Bella (I guess editing just COULDN'T fix that wig!?! ha ha)
While some reshoots of secondary cast members are rumoured, it is highly likely that at least one of the three main cast will be in town if not more.

What does this mean for Eclipse timeline?

Multiple sources have confirmed to me that some key scenes need to be reshot including footage between “Bella” and “Edward” in the meadow and a few fight sequences. They’ve been waiting for weeks to confirm dates but have had to work around Robert Pattinson’s schedule. Originally they needed 7 days but now, due to his other commitments, it’s been proposed that they work for 3 days with the crew putting in 18 hours each day. This should happen in Vancouver in the new few weeks.
What’s more interesting is WHO would actually direct the reshoot. David Slade is the director for Eclipse. But I’m told that apparently David Slade’s relationship with Summit has been... not great. Creative differences. At one point things had supposedly deteriorated to the point that they were actually considering hiring someone else to reshoot in Vancouver. Some of the names tossed around? Chris Weitz and Catherine Hardwicke. Hardwicke is in Vancouver working on another new film to go in the summer. They’re looking at delaying that project and Hardwicke has been spotted undercover checking out studio and location space for the Eclipse reshoot.
Having said that, Slade and Summit are now communicating on better terms. And there is still a good possibility he could come back to Vancouver to complete his film. As of Monday, no final decision about a director had been made. Will keep you posted.
Interesting... I sensed tension between Summit & David Slade after the new editor was hired for Eclipse. All of this makes me VERY uneasy....
I don't see Chris Weitz or Catherine Hardwicke taking over the re-shoots. IF David Slade doesn't do it, a 2nd unit director or stunt director from Eclipse seems more likely.
How do you feel bout all of this?
Before you get upset about re-shoots this late in the game...

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 and the 1930’s flashback to Forks scene (Kellan Lutz, Peter Facinelli, Kellan Lutz in period clothes) months after filming had wrapped. In fact at the time, many questioned why the scenes with Kellan, Nikki, and Peter could have just been reshot in LA rather than dragging everyone back to Portland.
So, let's not get too scared... NGL I am concerned but, let's trust it will all come together... *fingers crossed*
Twilight Lexicon got word from Summit to refer to GossipCop for "complete story" which I posted here.
