Studio Addresses Rumors of Eclipse Trouble

After stirring the excitable Twilight fan base into something of a frenzy with news that, months after production ended on third film Eclipse, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and other cast members were returning to Vancouver to shoot new footage, the studio announced today that the movie “remains on schedule” and that these new scenes are “not technically reshoots but rather ‘pickup shots’ … [that] are normal in the filmmaking process.” And rumors that director David Slate had disappointed the studio were also addressed: "The studio is very happy with Slade and some internally think this film could very well be the best of the three,” the spokesman said. Presumably they just want to add in more shirtless Taylor Lautner shots. [E!]
