In a new interview with MTV, Rob Pattinson talks about his dream director for Breaking Dawn and names Gus van Sant, who is known for shooting many of his projects in his hometown of Portland, Oregon.

Pattinson is also fueling rumors that production of Breaking Dawn will return to Portland:

“I probably shouldn’t say this,” Rob revealed to MTV News over the weekend, acknowledging that the wheels are slowly creeping into motion on “Breaking Dawn” getting made. “But I’ve heard that we’re going to shoot it in Portland.

I’ve also got a look at the evidence for returning production to Portland in a new article on Examiner.com:

The first movie, “Twilight,” was filmed in and around Portland in early 2008.

(“The Twilight Saga: New Moon” is due out Nov. 20th; “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” is due out in June 2010.)

When filming wrapped last month on the third movie, “Eclipse,” crews broke down the set pieces and closed up shop — furthering rumors that production may be returning to the Rose City. There’s also the added incentives, passed by the Oregon state legislature earlier this year — which gives more benefits to filmmakers who shoot in Oregon. Perhaps the extra perks will lure filmmakers back to Portland for “Breaking Dawn”?
