I did my set report last night stating that the schedule had been unexpectedly changed.
Yes, movies schedules change, but I can definately say that Rob was supposed to film all 3 days and hasn't.
So take that as you will and let's hope "official" word on this situation comes out soon.
Last I heard Rob was on set today and presumably filming though I've not seen him or photos of him to see if he has been groomed for filming.
As a fan, I am worried about trying to cram reshoots into only 3 days, 2 of which our star wasn't filming as scheduled, and only 2 months before the film is released, which is about a month before the final product should be completed. Promotion starts next week for goodness sake!!!
Time is ticking and it doesn't FEEL like things are going smoothly!
I am not trying to spread my anxiety or stir the pot, I am simply stating my own feelings on the projects current state. This is "Mandy's Mind" afterall!
As a fan I worry, especially because Eclipse is my favourite of the books and there has already been so much drama surrounding the film. The director choice and vision (newborns=zombies), the editor re-hire, the Bella wig, the recasting of Victoria, re-shoots, its been a rollercoaster of epic proportions.
What are your thoughts on the happenings?
In the meantime check out Everything Eclipse.
Gossip Cop posted a "debunking" story today:
Some even suggested a rift between Pattinson and director David Slade, and that the actor was refusing to be cooperative.
This simply is not the case.
As we speak, Pattinson is on the set filming, a source on the scene confirms to Gossip Cop.
“There are absolutely no problems,” a rep for Summit tells Gossip Cop, adding, “Today is the first day of shooting for Robert Pattinson.”
The pick-ups are underway, as scheduled, and speculation about problems should be curbed in favor of facts.
What's interesting about this post is that they are magnifying an obvious issue and specifically saying what it "isn't" which usually s a good indicator of what it is.
Publicists work to make their clients look the best possible... and "reps" don't come out and say "ya well, there was a disagreement on set"
Why doesn't Gossip Cop name or address the "rep" (is this the janitor? a producer? a staffer?) and why is the "non-problem" so specificaly "David Slade and Robert Pattinson"?
This is like saying "close your eyes and DON'T think of a pink elephant"
Time will tell what happened on set yesterday, if words were exchanged, if Rob had the day off or left unexpectedly... it really doesn't matter, as long as our film gets made, and it will.
As commenters have mentioned, the first two movies weren't Oscar worthy but still did well based on the fandom... Eclipse will likely be no different.
So disputes on set or not, Eclipse will get made & we will all go see it, hopefully June 30
