Summit Entertainment is definitely optimistic regarding its movie adaptation of the Twilight saga written by Stephenie Meyer. The first Twilight movie in 2008 was a real jackpot. So we may understand the keen dedication of the production company to bring New Moon this 2009. Now, dear Twilight fans, fasten your seat belts because Summit is fast-tracking the movie Eclipse, aka Twilight 3: the release date of the movie Eclipse has been set for June 30, 2010!

The word is that Summit is rushing with the adaptation both to compound on the success of the first movie and to lock in a deal with Stephenie Meyer before the value of the franchise skyrockets again.
Plot – Synopsis:
“As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death.”
We can bet that the movie will be titled The Twilight Saga Eclipse, following the decision made for New Moon’s title.
New Moon’s director Chris Weitz won’t be helming Twilight 3 because of conflicting schedules: he will be in post-production on New Moon at the same time that Eclipse will start shooting.
But of course Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will be back for this Eclipse movie, respectively as Edward the Vampire, Bella the undecided young lady, and Jacob the newly assumed Werewolf.
