There's a major cast shake-up for Twilight fans to wake up to this morning.

No, neither Robert Pattinson nor Kristen Stewart nor Taylor Lautner is going anywhere.

But Rachelle Lefevre, who played the evil character of Victoria in the first movie and will do so again in New Moon, will be replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard in the franchise's third installment, Eclipse.

Howard will begin shooting, along with the rest of the cast, in Vancouver on August 17.

Can you picture Bryce Dallas Howard as Victoria?

The studio said the switch was made due to scheduling conflicts.

Dallas Howard is the daughter of director Ron Howard. She's starred in Terminator Salvation and Spider-Man 3, among many other films.

This is the second major casting news announced this month for Eclipse. Xavier Samuel will star as Riley in the much-anticipated flick.
