Summit claims that while Slade's work has been awesome, and the editing has been done well, "more" needed to be done, and they needed to bring in a pro that knows and understands the emotions of the series. So they bring back the original editor for Twilight, Nancy Richardson. HMMM. Makes me super nervous I guess.
Some people also claim THIS is why we've gotten no trailer, why we've had to wait so darn long to get any footage at all. Trouble in paradise?
Out with the old.. In with the old?
Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the uber-successful Twilight series, confirmed this morning that it has replaced Eclipse editor Art Jones with Nancy Richardson, the editor of Catherine Hardwicke’s original Twilight film. The studio is not placing blame on Jones, who previously worked with Eclipse director David Slade on his horror film 30 Days of Night as well as Slade’s Ellen Page-starrer Hard Candy. They do believe, however, that Slade’s material – which they call “very good” – needed a stronger edit. The studio has more confidence in Richardson, who they say understands the emotion of the characters and is an ace at balancing action with the other elements of the film.
