Fangs for the memories, but Rachelle Lefevre is out of the Twilight movies as the studio brings in Bryce Dallas Howard to replace her for the part of Victoria in this teen-vampires-in-love movies series.
Bryce Dallas Howard will take over the role of Victoria in the studio's upcoming production of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Actress Rachelle Lefevre, who portrayed the character in Twilight as well as the upcoming release of The Twilight Saga: New Moon, will not continue in the role. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will start filming in Vancouver across August 2009.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third film in the studio's Twilight film franchise based on Stephenie Meyer's book series, will be directed by David Slade from a screenplay written by Melissa Rosenberg. The film will be released theatrically in North America on June 30th 2010.
Howard most recently starred in Terminator Salvation as Kate Connor and has been seen in Spider-Man 3, Lady In The Water, and The Village.
Erik Feig at Summit told the Nest, "We are incredibly happy that Bryce has agreed to come into the franchise. 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."
