Eclipse Updates: Editor Replacement, Sountrack News, and More
I heard about this yesterday on twitter, and I thought it was just another rumor. But now Entertainment Weekly is reporting it:

"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."

In my opinion, I think this staff change will help the Eclipse movie be even better. The Twilight Lexicon compared Art Jones' IMDB to Nancy Richardson's IMDB, and it's pretty obvious that Nancy has a lot more experience than Art.
Here's another Eclipse movie update, and this is a lot more depressing: Muse will not be on the Eclipse soundtrack.

According to Dose.ca:
'The news is surprising given the band is pals-y with Eclipse's director, David Slade (he helmed loads of Muse's early videos), and possibly pals-ier with Stephenie Meyer (there's even a photo of lead singer Matthew Bellamy cozying up to Twilight's dark-ish mistress on Muse's official site).

"Oh, it’s nothing to do with Stephenie, she’s totally cool," says Howard, beginning to explain how Muse have potentially broken their Twilight hat-trick. "It’s the people in the movie business, completely outside of the writers and the creative types, the non-creative types I suppose are the people who are quite hard to deal with in Hollywood, so it didn’t work out."

As for the original tune in question, which remains untitled, Howard says it would have fit Eclipse like Edward on Bella -- even though it wasn't directly inspired by the books or movies.

"It was a love song, so it’s a personal song, and it wasn’t really to do with the films. But it was sounding good," he says.'

To try and end this post on a good note, Kellan Lutz talked for a bit about both Eclipse and Breaking Dawn:
