More pre-Eclipse release Twi-News headlines …

* TIME has a new interview with Twilight Saga producer Wyck Godfrey:

Taylor Lautner’s onscreen shirtlessness has become a national punch line. But instead of cutting down on it in Eclipse, you make a joke about it.
These movies have to take the piss out of themselves, if you will. New Moon was such a serious, depressing movie that people felt we had lost a little humor of the books. That joke happened to be mine.

Breaking Dawn is an rated-R book. Will it be transformed into R movies?
I personally believe no. Fundamentally, I don’t believe the audience of the franchise is an R-rated audience.

Rachelle Lefevre, who plays Victoria in the first two movies, had to be replaced in Eclipse. You have said it was a scheduling conflict on her part. Missing a box office hit for scheduling? How does that happen?
I think her management told her it would be fine and that she could do both [projects] without really understanding the realities of our schedule. We were locked into shooting her those first two weeks, and those were the weeks that she wasn’t available. That was a hard lesson. As a producer you can work around [scheduling conflicts] when there’s lead time, but when you find out at the last minute, you cannot. And it was heartbreaking for her and us. As much as people like to report differently, no one likes to replace people in a franchise. You don’t want to rock the boat.
