A third film in “The Twilight Saga” is now set, reports Deadline Hollywood Daily. Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the series based on Stephenie Meyer’s teen vampire books, has apparently decided to release Eclipse on June 30, 2010.

No director for the third film is confirmed yet, and New Moon and Eclipse aren’t set to be filmed back-to-back.
