Good News: Eclipse has a release date, June 30th 2010

Summit Entertainment has revealed that Eclipse, the third film in the Twilight series, will arrive in theaters Wednesday June 30, 2010. The second installment, New Moon, is schedule to open in November.

Since the release dates are so close together one may assume that both films will be shot back-to-back, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Entertainment Weekly is reporting there will be a brief gap between the production of both films and Chris Weitz, who is directing New Moon, won’t helm Eclipse.

Summit will be looking for another director as Weitz, who also directed 2007’s The Golden Compass, will be in post-production on New Moon at the same time that Eclipse will begin filming.

Eclipse is the third book in the Twilight saga by Stephenie Meyer. It continues the story of 18-year-old Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and her vampire love, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). The book was released on August 7, 2007. The fourth in the series is Breaking Dawn.

So far, Eclipse in the only flick scheduled for June 30, 2010.

Thanks to our lovely Kate for the tip :)

Maybe the studio is playing and open ended game here with Catherine Hardwick and seeing if she could be a possible candidate for picking up on the third installment possibly?

I'm really disappointed hearing that. Yes its great that its coming so quickly, but that is sooooo quick, it makes me wonder if they care about quality or if they just wanna cash in on the franchise. At least with something like Harry Potter with years in between you know things aren't rushed. Doesn't seem the case with Twilight.
