After reading both statements multiple times, I have finally come to the conclusion of I don't know. Nobody does other than Rachelle and Summit.
Was it Summits fault? I mean, looking at the fact that they rehired SO FAST and with such a successful actress who has a dad with a big name, it could be. They came out with a statement that mimicked Rachelle's, but tried to defend themselves with it by saying "no, no, no. It’s all on HER!"
Or was it Rachelle’s fault? I mean, she did notify them of her scheduling just days before it all began, and she did know that both movies were to begin filming at around the same time.
How about both? Did the lack of communication and willingness to compromise on both sides lead to this abrupt end to Rachelle’s career in the Twilight franchise? I mean, Cam obviously did it with Twilight. Couldn't they have done it here?
The fact is, we will never get the whole story. Both sides of the argument can provide very fair evidence, but nothing will ever be certain to us. I personally want to side with Rachelle SO BAD because of where I stand as a viewer of the movies. Having met her, I know that she is a kind person who wants to make the best movie for the fans, and I really wish she could bring that sort of passion to Eclipse. However, then again, Summit's statement overwhelms me. It makes me lean towards the "Switzerland" line because they have some facts that can't be ignored.
So, that’s exactly where I stand. I. Am. Switzerland.
