The vampiric actor was spotted stepping back into his role as hot and sexy vampire Edward Cullen for the first time since filming started. RadarOnline.com had the amazing  photos of the actor’s return to his famous role. Emerging from his trailer with a pale face and cherry tinted luscious lips, Pattinson took a break from filming in Vancouver and hung out with co-stars and fellow bloodsuckers Ashley Greene and Jackson Rathbone.

hot vampThe security surrounding the cast members in Vancouver has been high, especially since Pattinson caused such a stir while filming in NYC that he was clipped by a cab trying to escape crowds full of Twihards. Rob was last spotted at a Kings of Leon concert over a week ago with co-star Kristen Stewart.

With Edward on set, his Bella shouldn’t be too far behind so I’ll be on the lookout for photos of Kristen Stewart and sexy wolf Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black).

‘Twilight’ Studio ‘Disappointed’ By Rachelle Lefevre’s Recasting Comments, Blames “Lack of Cooperative Spirit” for Eclipse Recast

Blood is starting to boil over and the fangs are out

Eclipse VampsThe war of words between fired “Twilight” actress Rachelle Lefevre and studio Summit Entertainment continued to escalate Wednesday evening, barely 24 hours after she was replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard.

New-Moon-Victoria-twilight-series-5208398-394-597Yesterday, Rachelle Lefevre revealed that she was “stunned” and “greatly saddened” by Summit Entertainment’s decision to replace her with Bryce Dallas Howard in the role of evil vampire Victoria in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.” Last night, Summit fired back, saying the Canadian actress failed to inform the studio until July 20 that she was planning to be in Europe shooting an indie film when the Twilight gang was already convening for rehearsals.

“We at Summit Entertainment are disappointed by Rachelle Lefevre’s recent comments which attempt to make her career choices the fault of the Studio,” reads a statement released by Summit late Wednesday. “Her decision to discuss her version of the scheduling challenges publicly has forced the Studio to set the record straight and correct the facts.”

“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,” the statement continued. “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.”

twilight evil vampsLefevre, who appears in the second installment of the series, “New Moon,” said she only needed 10 days off to work on “Barney’s Version.” She said, “Never did I fathom I would lose the role over a 10-day overlap.” Summit fired back saying, “Contrary to Ms. Lefevre’s statement, it is simply untrue that the studio dismissed her over a 10-day overlap,” the statement concludes. “It is not about a 10-day overlap, but instead about the fact that “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” is an ensemble production that has to accommodate the schedules of numerous actors while respecting the established creative vision of the filmmaker and most importantly the story.”

Summit isn’t backing down on their decision and maintains that Lefevre left them no choice saying, “If Ms. Lefevre was, as she describes, ‘passionate’ about being part of The ‘Twilight’ saga, we feel that she and her representatives would have included us in her decision to work on another film that would conflict with the shooting schedule of ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,’ ” it also says, making reference to Lefevre’s decision to shoot the Dustin Hoffman film “Barney’s Version,” a film she claims would have only created 10 days of interference that she assumed could be worked out between the two parties.

twilight vamps“Furthermore,” the statement reads, “Ms. Lefevre took a role in the other film that places her in Europe during the required rehearsal time, and at least 10 days of [‘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.”

Twilight fans were shocked by the announcement yesterday and have lit up the internet with their displeasure over the casting switcheroo. This is the first time that a major character has been recast mid-series. Howard has remained mum on her upcoming role. The plot thickens…

MORNING COFFEE: Bryce Dallas Howard Joins `Twilight: Eclipse,’ Replaces Rachelle Lefevre As Victoria

Bryce Dallas Howard is sinking her teeth into a role in the “Twilight” series

Eclipse VampsTwilight fans were surprised by the announcement that Rachelle Lefevre will be replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard in the third movie in the series “Eclipse.”  Lefevre played the role of villain Victoria, who hunts and tries to kill Bella to avenge the death of her beloved James.

twilight evil vampsHoward, daughter of director Ron Howard, is taking over for Lefevre, who played the part in the first two movies, the 2008 smash “Twilight” and the upcoming “New Moon.” Summit Entertainment says Lefevre isn’t returning because of scheduling conflicts. She’s slated to appear opposite Dustin Hoffman in the independent film Barney’s Version, which begins filming the same day as Eclipse. This will be the first time a major cast member has left mid-saga. Howard, who is no stranger to box office smash hits, has appeared in “Terminator Salvation” and “Spider Man 3”.

brycepreggers.0.0.0x0.376x490“We are incredibly happy that Bryce has agreed to come into the franchise,” Erik Feig, president of Worldwide Production and Acquisitions for Summit Entertainment, said in a statement Tuesday. “Rachelle brought ‘Victoria’ to great screen life and Bryce will bring a new dimension to the character. The franchise is lucky to have such a talented actress as Bryce coming in to fill the role.”

Howard is joining the series at the perfect time since it’s in “Eclipse” that Victoria seduces newborn vampire Riley, to be played by cutie Xavier Samuel in Eclipse, due in theaters June 30, 2010. Cameras start rolling in Vancouver next month.

“Eclipse,” which happens to be my favorite book in the series, is based on the third book in Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” saga, is scheduled to begin shooting in Vancouver in August. “New Moon” hits theaters November 20.

Kristen Stewart & Dakota Fanning Rock On in Runaways; TWILIGHT: ECLIPSE Start Filming Next Month

runawaysKristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning are currently in Los Angeles filming the Joan Jett biopic The Runaways. The pair has completely transformed into their characters, shedding anything previously associated with the way they look. Stewart is rocking a dark mullet, while Fanning is sporting heavy makeup (me likie) and a shaggy do. Both ladies look fabulous.

dakota2stewart2Stewart and Fanning were seen jumping on a car and kicking over a garbage can on the set of The Runaways in Los Angeles on Thursday. The film documents Joan Jett’s all-teen girl rock band that formed in Hollywood, California in the mid-70s. The Runaways, which also stars Scout Taylor-Compton and Hannah Marks, hits theatres next year.

eclipseIn Twilight news, fans are happy to know the wait is over because the third film adaptation of the vampire saga has been given a start date by Summit Entertainment. Eclipse will begin production August 17, and will be directed by horror helmer David Slade.

eclipse2Eclipse, the third installment in the Twilight Saga, furthers the tale of the love triangle between Kristen Stewart‘s Bella Swan, Taylor Lautner‘s Jacob Black and Robert Pattinson‘s Edward Cullen.

Eclipse is my favorite book in the entire Twilight Saga and I cannot wait to see how they interpret it on the big screen. The love triangle between Bella-Edward-Jacob reaches a climax, the vampire newborns are on the loose, and my favorite character, Jasper, is given a bigger role after revealing his intense background.
