'Twilight' has earned $363 million worldwide at the box office.

Fresh from the stunning success of "Twilight," Summit Entertainment has officially greenlit "Eclipse" as the third pic in the series with a release date of June 30, 2010.
Summit's expected to make the official announcement this weekend. "Twilight" has generated $189 million domestically and another $174 million overseas.

Summit's expected to begin production shortly on "New Moon," the second film. Chris Weitz replaced "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke on "New Moon" with they key thesps reprising their roles -- Robert Pattinson as Edward, Kristen Stewart as Bella and Taylor Lautner as Jacob.

Summit hasn't yet selected a director for "Eclipse," in which Bella is forced to choose between Edward and Jacob.

The vampire thriller represents a ready-made franchise for Summit with four books in Stephenie Meyer's series, which have sold more than 17 million copies worldwide.

In "New Moon," the Jacob character becomes a central figure in the plot as Bella is drawn into the world of the werewolves, the ancestral enemies of vampires.
