Bryce Dallas Howard replaces Lefevre as Victoria in 'Twilght's 'Eclipse'
Ron Howard's daughter, Bryce Dallas Howard ("Terminator: Salvation", "Spiderman 4", M. Night Shyamalan's "The Village" and "Lady in the Water") will step into the role of vampire Victoria in Summit's upcoming "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse."
The reason? "Scheduling conflicts."
"We are incredibly happy that Bryce has agreed to come into the franchise," said Erik Feig, Summit's president of worldwide production and acquisitions.
"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."
"Eclipse" starts filming in Vancouver in August. Which is like, soon.
We have nothing against Rachelle, but Bryce is an amazing actress. And they both have blue eyes and bright red hair.
Are you happy -- or bummed -- about the change?
Seems odd to change actresses for the third film, doesn't it?
What do you think the real reason was?
