Movie News | By on Jul 29th, 2009

At least a decent actor will be in the Twilight saga now, not like I’ll still watch the movies.. Bryce Dallas Howard, Ron Howard’s daughter, will be in the 3rd installment of the Twilight Saga. Recently, Howard was in Terminator: Salvation and other memorable roles include Spiderman 3, The Village, and Lady in the Water. She will be replacing Rachelle Lefevre as the character of Victoria in Twilight.

Lefevre originated the role in “Twilight” and appears in the upcoming sequel “New Moon,” but Summit says scheduling conflicts forced her to leave the picture.

Pic starts shooting in Vancouver in August under the direction of David Slade. “Eclipse” has a release date of June 30, 2010.

“We are incredibly happy that Bryce has agreed to come into the franchise,” said Erik Feig, Summit’s president of worldwide production and acquisitions. “Rachelle brought Victoria to great screen life and Bryce will bring a new dimension to the character. The franchise is lucky to have such a talented actress as Bryce coming in to fill the role.”
