A couple weeks ago we posted Summit’s answers to some Breaking Dawn rumors that had been making their way around the internet. In the last few days there have been some additional updates on Breaking Dawn filming – no word from Summit on these bits of info, so consider them rumors for now.
According to Malicious Mandy:
I got an email over the weekend from a fellow Twilight fan in Baton Rouge. Here are some details she sent me regarding Pre-Production of Breaking Dawn:
* studio is secure and gated but busy.
* a lot of construction going on in the lots (unsure if related to filming or not, it seems likely)
* they are using the lot across from studio also (for storage and vehicles at this point)
* Bill Condon has been spotted in town and is staying at a private location not too far from studios
And from The Daily Blam:
Recently, Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the highly lucrative film series The Twilight Saga, announced that filming for the franchise’s final chapter, Breaking Dawn, will partially take place in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. A source within the Louisiana Film Commission has disclosed to me that members of the Breaking Dawn production crew have already scouted out the location they are planning to use for the film; which the studio is releasing in two parts.
The scene will be the final confrontation between the Cullen clan, who are joined by the Quileute wolf pack and their friends, and the Volturi. The scene, most of which is taken directly from the novel, has been extended to include several physical fights. It is expected that many Twilight fans will be flocking to Louisiana when the studio begins filming in the area; which is why the exact area the production team has decided on is being kept tightly under wrap.
