Catherine Hardwicke, director of the first “Twilight” movie, tells the Los Angeles Times’ Dish Rag that Lefevre got the role of villainous vampire Victoria because it was too low-profile for their first choice… Bryce Dallas Howard.
Howard, of course, has replaced Lefevre on “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” setting off a war of words between Lefevre (who claims she was fired for working on a side project) and Summit Entertainment.
If what Hardwicke says is true, then Summit may have been more than happy to find an opportunity to recast the role of Victoria with their original choice. Howard certainly can’t say the blockbuster series is too small any more.
