New Moon doesn’t hit theaters until the end of the Fall, and by that time principal photography on The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will be in the can. The third film in the Twilight franchise begins shooting on August 17, with production set to wrap on Halloween in Vancouver. Pretty fitting eh?
Eclipse sees our heroine Bella (Kristen Stewart) torn between her true love with vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson), and her friend Jacob (Taylor Lautner) the shape-shifting wolf-boy, while a new threat emerges from an insurgent army of new vampires.
With The Twilight Saga: New Moon out on November 20, the franchise series is trucking along in a way that allows the previous release to remain fresh on the minds of fans. It also allows the stars of the films to stay close to the material and their respective characters. More on this as it progresses, stay tuned Twilighters!
