Rachelle Lefevre Talks New Moon, Eclipse and Director Changes

London Free Press has a great interview with Rachelle where she addresses both New Moon and Eclipse and all the director changes:

Usually when a film succeeds, a studio clings to its creator. But in the case of New Moon, Catherine Hardwicke is out, replaced by Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass).

"It could have been bad," Lefevre admits. "But I think because Harry Potter went through it first to their benefit, we were like, 'The Potter kids went through a director shift and they were OK, so we'll be OK, too.'

"And we were. Chris came in with such a clear idea of what the movie was. And he paid respect to what had come before -- so it was kind of seamless."
A third transition will happen later this year in Vancouver when another director, David Slade (30 Days of Night), takes the reins of the next sequel Eclipse.

"It's perfect timing for David because Eclipse is darker than the other two. There's more action. It's not a horror movie, but it is darker."

And just as the series evolves, so does Lefevre's role as Victoria seeks to avenge the death of her lover, James.

"In the first movie, because I didn't have as much screen time, I wanted to be very clear. I wanted to convey energy and be very present, but also very playful. And that's because (Victoria) enjoyed stalking Bella with James. But when James is killed, it becomes about exacting revenge, which comes from a totally different place. It's not just a game any more."

I am so excited for New Moon...obviously...but hearing her talk about Eclipse makes me was my favorite book and I think the movie will be amazing!
