'Twilight': Third film in series, 'Eclipse,' set for June 2010

A third film in "The Twilight Saga" is now set, reports Deadline Hollywood Daily. Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the series based on Stephenie Meyer’s teen vampire books, has apparently decided to release Eclipse on June 30, 2010. That’s little more than half a year after the series’ second movie, New Moon, is due to come out, on Nov. 20, 2009. No director for the third film is confirmed yet, and New Moon and Eclipse aren’t set to be filmed back-to-back.

Deadline Hollywood Daily also quotes this Eclipse plot summary from Summit: "As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and amalicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once againfinds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she isforced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship withJacob — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite theageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduationquickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life ordeath."

      yeah but its better not to wait as long as the harry potter films it takes to long when you have to wait a year or more as it is we still have two fims left in the harry potter films i for one cant wait to see the next twlight film in june

    • emily

      hay name is emily and i just love the 4 twilight bocks and the moives so very very much and i cant wait for the new twilight 2 two come out on dvd

  • Kalie

    Why June of 2010? Why not wait until November? I don’t like that they’re rushing these movies into production. It’s not like the fans will lose interest if we have to wait just one year for another sequel.

    • Twilighter

      Oh-oh-oh! Hey, it’s not like they’re rushin’ it only because of our interest. They MUST rush it simply because Edward and Bella(and all the others) stay young forever, wich will not happen to Rob, Kristen and the rest of the cast.

    • Pookie

      They aren’t rushing it they’re keeping the excitment going. I don’t want to wit a whole year to see the next installment.

    • nik

  • Kim

    Something tells me the release date will get pushed back. haha, they won’t be able to make it on time.

  • SB

    Oh my. Summit isn’t really shooting for quality here are they? As Sara put it: “Money, money, money.”

    • Katelyn

    Actually they may be doing it to save money too. They filmed the 2nd and 3rd Pirates of the Caribbean movies at the same time and the 2 final Lord of the Rings movies as well. makes good money sense to me. If that is the case.

  • Nerwen Aldarion

    I agree, I hope they know what they are doing. Making back to back movies has worked before but Summit better know that it is better to wait longer for good movies than throw out a couple of crappy ones. They better be good because the TwiFans will be after them like rabid dogs if they aren’t

    • Sandy

      I want Chris Weitz to produce the EClIPSE.. New Moon was so much better than Twilight. Its not a big deal when the next movie comes out…

  • lilo

    thats barely 6 months after new moon. they really dont care to stay true to the books, or the fans who make it the success it is. i think stephenie should have chosen a different company to sale the franchise to. summit sucks.

  • Alyssa

    Why are they picking June of 2010? I dont watch the films, but this seems like a bad move if they want the films to succeed because Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be out in May of 2010.

  • M

    Actually Harry Potter & Deathly Hollows will be released Nov 2010 and May 2011. They can’t go against it.

  • Alyssa

    Well there lucky in that sense then, they would be crushed by Harry if it was in May of 2010.

  • Nikki

    I love twilight and love that the movies are coming out so fast !! super excited !! I just hope they can do all of them well =)

    • Michele

      They didn’t do the first one good :( most people that read the book were very disapointed in the movie me included there was no chemestry and they didnt even play the parts right I hope the second director they had does a better job and they will have a bigger buget with new moon so hopefully it gets better.

  • Jules

    did any of you think that the actors are playing non-aging vampires and they are aging, so it is smart on the studios part to film so close together. Peter Jackson filmed the Lord of the Rings triolgy in one shot. what is the difference. Plus, if both of the films coming out do well that means they might make Breaking Dawn which I think by far might be the best one to make a movie of! So much happens, it is exciting!

    • jacqui

      well i agree that they need to film fast to stop aging and if they dont make th fourth one im starting a riot and protest till they do even if i have to go to there houses and stalk them ever it takes thats my fav book ever and im more worried that they changed victoria that is so not cool
