The news that Twilight star, Rachelle Lefevre, was to be replaced with Bryce Dallas Howard in Eclipse came as a shock to both fans and Rachelle alike. The redheaded actress released a statement in response, expressing her surprise and dismay. Now, Summit is claiming that the reason Lefevre is being replaced is because Rachelle displayed a “lack of cooperative spirit.”
In a statement released to Access Hollywood, a spokesperson for the film production company claims, “It was not until July 20th that Summit was first informed of Ms. Lefevre’s commitment to Barney’s Version, a commitment we have since been advised she accepted in early June.”
Summit adds, “We feel that her choice to withhold her scheduling conflict information from us can be viewed as a lack of cooperative spirit which affected the entire production.”
