CONFIRMED: Breaking Dawn to be filmed in Vancouver, Baton Rouge

This just in from Summit:


Summit Entertainment’s THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN will be filmed in both Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Vancouver over the next year starting this fall. The next chapter of THE TWILIGHT SAGA will be released as two separate films with the first of the two slated to be released in theatres on November 18, 2011.

Academy Award® winner Bill Condon will direct both films starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner along with Billy Burke as Charlie Swan as well as returning members of the Cullen Family including Peter Facinelli as Carlisle, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme, Jackson Rathbone as Jasper, Nikki Reed as Rosalie, Ashley Greene as Alice and Kellan Lutz as Emmett.

The project, based on the fourth novel in author Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, is currently being written by Melissa Rosenberg with Wyck Godfrey, Karen Rosenfelt and Stephenie Meyer producing.

I already mapped it, and it’s 3 hours and 13 minutes from my house to Baton Rouge. I’m thinking there’s a Novel Novice Twilight road trip in my future! But … other than Isle Esme, I’m not sure what locations would be filmed in Louisiana. I mean, last I checked, there were no live oaks with Spanish moss in Forks.

For the comments: What scenes do you think would be filmed in the South?

  1. I agree…Isle Esme. Maybe there will be some scenes with Alice and Jasper looking for other hybrids? That was in South America, right?

  2. BR could likely be studio work. There are many films made in the area and much postproduction can be done there as well.

  3. I can’t wait for the next film. Next to the first book this is my favorite!!!

  4. I’m thinking the search for supporters would fit in well here. (i live like 2 hours from B.R.)

  5. Steph, if you road trip … I may have to fly down and join you! 😉

    If the cost is cheaper in Louisiana, they may be doing a bunch of studio work there, in addition to the tropical locations (Isle Esme, South America). But who knows?

    I’m still bummed they didn’t come back to Portland. 😦

  6. Baton Rouge? Maybe we’re going to get an Alice flashback.
