STARRING Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner
WRITTEN BY Melissa Rosenberg
DIRECTED BY David Slade

The Twilight cast has been working a tough schedule. Franchise newbie David Slade (30 Days of Night) began directing Eclipse in Vancouver last summer, just seven weeks after New Moon wrapped. For Stewart, though, the shoot was a comparative breeze after the angst of the last film: ”I wasn’t as tortured as I was on New Moon. Bella really knows what she wants in Eclipse. She’s not just a dumb kid talking because she’s in love.” In Eclipse, Bella graduates from high school, decides Edward is her man, and gets engaged. Along the way, she watches Jacob and Edward become allies as they fight off new vampires. As for the cinematic proposal scene, producer Wyck Godfrey promises it won’t disappoint rabid Twihards. ”She walks into Edward’s room and there’s a beautiful four-poster bed and it’s like, ‘Wow, here we go!”’
