In early November 2008, Summit announced that they had attained the rights to the remaining books in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series: New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. In February 2009, Summit confirmed that they would begin working on The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. On the same day, it was announced that since New Moon director Chris Weitz would be in post-production for New Moon when The Twilight Saga: Eclipse began shooting, he would not be directing the third film. Instead, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse would be helmed by director David Slade, with Melissa Rosenberg returning as screenwriter.
Summit Entertainment revealed that they would replace Rachelle Lefevre, who played an evil vampire named Victoria, with Bryce Dallas Howard in late July 2009. They attributed the change to scheduling conflicts, and Lefevre responded by saying she was "stunned" and "greatly saddened" by the decision. Bryce Dallas Howard was initially approached to play Victoria in Twilight, but she rejected it as it was "too small of a part".
Jodelle Ferland was cast as the newly turned vampire, Bree. Other new cast members include Xavier Samuel as Riley,Jack Huston as Royce King II, Catalina Sandino Moreno as Maria,Julia Jones as Leah Clearwater, and Boo Boo Stewart as Seth Clearwater.
