Peter Facinelli Spills Eclipse Details

By: Celebuzz / August 4, 2009

Listen up, Twilight fans! Peter Facinelli (aka Dr. Carlisle Cullen from the vampire series) has some information about the soon-to-be-filmed third installment of the movie franchise, Eclipse!

Facinelli tells OK! Magazine that the cast will begin rehearsals today, followed by a grueling physical regimen.

“We start rehearsals tomorrow. We have two weeks of rehearsal and then a week of fight training,” Facinelli reveals, noting that the entire cast will undergo the fight training, and with good reason.

“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,” Facinelli notes.

And while the fight training will surely be arduous, Facinelli can’t wait to get in there and mix it up.

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,” he notes.

Sounds like Eclipse might be a smash-hit in more ways than one.

Let us know in the comments section: Do you think the Twilight franchise needs more bust-‘em-up action, or should they just focus on Edward Cullen looking sexy, undead and shirtless?
