chris weitz, the director of the testosterone driven ‘american pie’ and ‘about a boy’ films and the absolutely useless ‘golden compass’ was hired for some inexplicable reason to direct the sequel to ‘twilight’ (called ‘new moon’).
in this interview with time magazine he admits that he forgot to put the author of the wildly successful book series in the film. ‘But I had kind of forgotten that she had a cameo in the first one, and she never asked, she’s very quiet and gracious about it. I don’t know if she wanted to or not. I probably should have.’ that is what some women would say is a typical guy response ‘she never asked.’ i guess those tween-aged girls are wondering what sort of stuff david (i wouldn’t know how a girl thinks if she was feeding me the info on a plate) slade will forget in this next film.
it seems he’s already made his first mistake by throwing rachelle lefevre under the bus.

fiesty candian redhead rachelle lefevre was lured to comic con last weekend to promote the twilight series. the vampiress the tween-agers love to hate was abruptly replaced by a real red head yesterday. bryce dallas howard, aka ron howard’s daughter (nepotism, yes.) known more for dragging productions down (see terminator: salv and that weird m. night shyamalan mermaid movie) than bringing anything remotely similar to star power to one.
lefevre just released a statement. it’s on e! and we know how the studios like to twist their arms and force them to delete stuff. so i’ll highlight a few things in rachelle lefevre’s official statement.
“”I was stunned by Summit’s decision to recast the role of Victoria for Eclipse. I was fully committed to the Twilight saga, and to the portrayal of Victoria. I turned down several other film opportunities and, in accordance with my contractual rights, accepted only roles that would involve very short shooting schedules.” the link above has the full statement.ation
