According to sources, Kristen Stewart is a "young woman in love" on the set of Eclipse.

That's great and all, but can we get an update on the actual shooting of the third Twilight Saga film?!?

Thanks to Jackson Rathbone, the answer is an Obama-like: Yes, we can! The actor that plays Jasper Hale spoke to MTV this week about his character's role in the movie. Here are excerpts from the interview:

On Jasper's Civil War backstory: I get to shoot some Civil War stuff, and I'm also going to shoot a lot of fighting scenes.

On fighting techniques in Eclipse: We're talking about newborn vampires that can't control their urges — they can't really think very quickly. So if you just let them go to their instincts and evade and attack them from side to side, you could get them; but if you try and go after them through force, they're going to win every time. So it's all about evasion.

On the scene where Jasper becomes a vampire: It's going to be great. I've been studying up a lot on the Civil War and that era. It really was a crazy time. It was all-out war on our own turf and between countrymen... It's an interesting time to see when Jasper was actually human and what his human form was and, when he gets turned, how intense and how dark he is. Then [we'll see] his realization of what he's become, him finding Alice and being redeemed by love.

Eclipse will be released on June 30, 2010. Seven months prior to that, New Moon hits theaters on November 20.

Which are you more excited for?

From Xavier Samuel to Jack Huston, names are being added to the Eclipse cast on a weekly basis.

But the movie has landed its first Oscar nominee, as Catalina Sandino Moreno will come aboard the third Twilight Saga film in the role of an evil vampire.

Sandino Moreno was nominated for an Academy Award for her work in 2004's Maria Full of Grace.

As Maria, a blood sucker from Jasper's past who created an army of baby vampires during a nineteenth century war, the young actress will enjoy her first starring turn in an American movie.

She's cute, and new co-star Kellan Lutz is single. We're just sayin.

Welcome to the wild, crazy, popular world of the Twilight Saga, Catalina Sandino Moreno!

We interrupt our weekly musings about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to bring fans actual casting news regarding Eclipse.

Jack Huston has landed a role in the third Twilight film. The actor will portray Royce King II, a human that lived during the Depression and was engaged to Rosalie Hale (Nikki Reed).

The movie will start shooting on August 17 in Vancouver. Huston is British; he's the the grandson of director John Huston and nephew of actors Anjelica Huston and Danny Huston. He has a role in ABC's upcoming series Eastwick.

Over the last few weeks, Jodelle Ferland and Xavier Samuel have also been cast in Eclipse; while Bryce Dallas Howard has controversially replaced Rachelle Lefevre as Victoria in the movie.

Fans are still in an uproar over that actress switch.

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.

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.

Bryce Dallas Howard Pregnant

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.

While the buzz for New Moon is just starting to reach a fevered pitch - via a trailer, set photos and movie stills - it's never too early to hype the next installment in the Twilight Saga franchise.

We can confirm that Eclipse will be released in theaters on June 30, 2010.

Filming will take place in Vancouver and run from August 17 until October 31. Look for David Slade to direct the drama.

For those unfamiliar with the story of Eclipse:

As graduation nears for Bella (Kristen Stewart), Seattle is faced with a number of mysterious murders. Meanwhile, she must choose between her love for Edward (Robert Pattinson) and her friendship with Jacob (Taylor Lautner), a decision which may ignite a centuries-old war between vampires and werewolves.

Good luck with that one, Bella!
