What's wrong with you Summit?!

Rachelle Lefevre had this to say about the recasting of Victoria for eclipse:

LOS ANGELES, Calif. --

Summit Entertainment announced the replacement of "Twilight Saga" star Rachelle Lefevre in the series' third film, "Eclipse," on Tuesday night - and fans weren't the only ones surprised by the news - Rachelle was shocked as well!

"I was stunned by Summit's decision to recast the role of Victoria for ‘Eclipse,'" Rachelle said in a statement to Access Hollywood.

On Tuesday, Summit announced that Bryce Dallas Howard would be taking on the role in "Eclipse," due in May 2010.

"I was fully committed to the ‘Twilight' saga, and to the portrayal of Victoria," Rachelle continued, explaining the turn of events that led to the casting change. "I turned down several other film opportunities and, in accordance with my contractual rights, accepted only roles that would involve very short shooting schedules. My commitment to ‘Barney's Version' is only ten days. Summit picked up my option for ‘Eclipse.' Although the production schedule for ‘Eclipse' is over three months long, Summit said they had a conflict during those ten days and would not accommodate me. Given the length of filming for ‘Eclipse,' never did I fathom I would lose the role over a 10 day overlap. I was happy with my contract with Summit and was fully prepared to continue to honor it. Summit chose simply to recast the part."

The star concluded her statement with a regretful tone.

"I am greatly saddened that I will not get to complete my portrayal of Victoria for the ‘Twilight' audience. This is a story, a theatrical journey and a character that I truly love and about which I am very passionate. I will be forever grateful to the fan support and loyalty I've received since being cast for this role, and I am hurt deeply by Summit's surprising decision to move on without me. I wish the cast and crew of ‘Eclipse' only the very best," she said.

Rachelle will appear in the series' next film, "New Moon," due Nov. 20.

Wow.. I've never been so sad... I feel so sad for Rachelle whose been nothing but true and devoted to this movie and character.
What's the most saddening part is that there was no warning! Then maybe the fans and the actors could help to make this recasting never happend.
 I'm sure that not only the actors, but that Stephenie Meyer would not like Rachelle to be recast!
It's like the whole Taylor Lautner-recast issue. But then, there was no dession made and we got to show our love for Taylor and that the fans wouldn't want a differant actor.
But now, it's done. It's been recast without even us knowing and the part has already been cast to Bryce Dallas..
I feel soo, soo sad!
Pepole are already starting to act out. This is what went on in the twitter world..

(forgive my paint skills..)
seriously summit, If you know what's best for you, you'll do what you can to get Rachelle to come back.
If not you'll have millions of crazy angry twi-hards on your hands. and that's not a good thing..
