Summit Responds to Rachelle’s Comments on the Re-Cast

Summit has some things to say about what Rachelle said during her interview with  Access Hollywood .

Summit Entertainment

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

On Thursday afternoon, Rachelle issued a statement to Access in which she said she had been “fully committed” to the role of Victoria, an evil vampire out for revenge in the third film. She added she was very “passionate” about the role.

The actress said she turned down “several film opportunities” as part of her commitment to the part of Victoria. She added that her shooting schedule for one role she did take – in the  movie “Barney’s Version,” only had a 10-day overlap with the filming of “Eclipse.”

Summit, however, said they only learned about Rachelle’s shooting schedule conflict last Monday.

“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 from the film company read. “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.”

Summit claims Rachelle’s reps were informed about the “Eclipse” shooting schedule back in April. The studio also said the 10-day overlap comes at a crucial time for the filming of “Eclipse.”

“Ms. Lefevre took a role in the other film that places her in Europe during the required rehearsal time, and at least ten days of ‘The Twilight Saga: 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,” the statement from Summit read.

“The fact remains that Ms. Lefevre’s commitment to the other project – which she chose to withhold from Summit until the last possible moment – makes her unfortunately unavailable to perform the role of Victoria in ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,’” Summit’s statement concluded.

A rep for Rachelle was not immediately available for comment on Summit’s statements when contacted by Access.

However, earlier in the day, she thanked the fans of the popular series for their support.

“I will be forever grateful to the fan support and loyalty I’ve received since being cast for this role, and I am hurt deeply by Summit’s surprising decision to move on without me,” she said in a statement on Thursday afternoon. “I wish the cast and crew of ‘Eclipse’ only the very best.”

She also thanked fans who reached out via Twitter.

“I am so touched by all your responses and feel incredibly blessed to have fans like you. From the bottom of my heart: THANK YOU,” Rachelle Tweeted.

Idk what to say anymore all i know is that Rachelle better be playing her role as Victoria soon, and that Summit will hopefully come to there senses soon!

Tell me what you guys think of Summit’s response.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. –Summit Entertainment announced the replacement of “Twilight Saga” star Rachelle Lefevre in the series’ third film, “Eclipse,” on Tuesday night – and fans weren’t the only ones surprised by the news — Rachelle was shocked as well!

“I was stunned by Summit’s decision to recast the role of Victoria for ‘Eclipse,’” Rachelle said in a statement to Access Hollywood.

On Tuesday, Summit announced that Bryce Dallas Howard would be taking on the role in “Eclipse,” due in May 2010.

“I was fully committed to the ‘Twilight’ saga, and to the portrayal of Victoria,” Rachelle continued, explaining the turn of events that led to the casting change. “I turned down several other film opportunities and, in accordance with my contractual rights, accepted only roles that would involve very short shooting schedules. My commitment to ‘Barney’s Version’ is only ten days. Summit picked up my option for ‘Eclipse.’ Although the production schedule for ‘Eclipse’ is over three months long, Summit said they had a conflict during those ten days and would not accommodate me. Given the length of filming for ‘Eclipse,’ never did I fathom I would lose the role over a 10 day overlap. I was happy with my contract with Summit and was fully prepared to continue to honor it. Summit chose simply to recast the part.”

The star concluded her statement with a regretful tone.

“I am greatly saddened that I will not get to complete my portrayal of Victoria for the ‘Twilight’ audience. This is a story, a theatrical journey and a character that I truly love and about which I am very passionate. I will be forever grateful to the fan support and loyalty I’ve received since being cast for this role, and I am hurt deeply by Summit’s surprising decision to move on without me. I wish the cast and crew of ‘Eclipse’ only the very best,” she said.

Rachelle will appear in the series’ next film, “New Moon,” due Nov. 20.
