While a possible courtroom brawl is brewing between Summit Entertainment and Rachelle Lefevre, due to the latter's displeasure with being let go from the Twilight Saga, Peter Facinelli says the Eclipse cast is moving on.
By learning how to fight themselves!
“We start rehearsals tomorrow, the actor that plays Carlisle Cullen told OK! on Tuesday. "We have two weeks of rehearsal and then a week of fight training.”
Why the training? Are the rumors of a Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart relationship causing tension among the cast? Hardly.
Facinelli cites the movie's plot as the basis for impending fisticuffs.
"What happens in Eclipse is Victoria comes back and she builds an army of newborn vampires, which are freshly bitten vampires which are basically blood crazed and she’s trying to get this army to come after us so that she can get to Bella and so we team up with the werewolves to attack all these newly bitten vampires.”
As for what fans can expect in the third installment of this franchise, the actor said:
“Eclipse has more action in it and so I’m excited to get in there and have Carlisle roll his sleeves up a little bit and get into fight stuff.”
It's been a good summer already for Facinelli. He plays Dr. Fitch Cooper on the Showtime hit Nurse Jackie.
