The 24-year-old actor revealed, “I’m really excited to start filming Eclipse. I got a chance to read the script, and we get to go back into Jasper’s backstory. I get to shoot some Civil War stuff, and I’m also going to shoot a lot of fighting scenes, which is great, because I just came off [M. Night Shyamalan's] The Last Airbender, and I’ve been doing fighting for the last six months. So I’m ready to keep it on.”
Jackson continued, “It won’t be karate, it won’t be kung fu, like the stuff we’re doing in Airbender. But even in Airbender, the fighting styles I was doing were a little bit more loose, like street fighting.”
Eclipse is currently filming in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
