Saturday night (April 9th) the cast and crew of the Twilight Saga celebrated Kristen Stewart’s Birthday – as well as the end of shooting the films – in a big joint wrap party.
Filming for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 & The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is now complete.
So here we are at the end. For us fans, we still have a lot coming our way with the final two films over the next two years. On top of the films being released, we also have all the press that will take place prior to, and after, their release. There will also be DVD/Blu-Ray promotion for the films.
However, we can’t help but feel the journey coming to an end. It’s been a fun one and I know all of us Twilighters are incredibly pumped for these final two films!
This is where we’d like to thank everyone who has worked so diligently on these films since 2007. From the cast and crew to, of course, Stephenie Meyer: Thank you!
Lainey has another Breaking Dawn filming update. She is reporting that the cast are filming the Breaking Dawn wedding scenes in Squamish, and some other stuff about the cast being out at dinner, etc. I’ve, of course, added it all under a spoiler cut below for those of you who don’t particularly like Lainey and her updates.
This week is when they’re shooting the wedding reception and accompanying scenes for Twilight Breaking Dawn in Squamish. Am told there was a cast dinner last night at Rockwell’s. In attendance: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone, and some other people I’ve never heard of. Rathbone teased Stewart about wedding dance moves and Stewart seemed “adorably anxious” about having to shoot them.
Before dinner Stewart and Pattinson played with his dog outside. I didn’t know he had a dog. I spent most of my investigative time inquiring about this dog. Unfortunately all I got back was “a dog of no distinguishable breed”. Unfortunately the source is not a dog person and was unable to do like dog owners do and speculate by analysing physical attributes. Jacek for instance thinks that any tri-colour dog must have beagle in them. Anyway, my dog Marcus just had surgery yesterday on his leg to remove a benign lump which is why I rushed home from the Junos. He’s fine. But really groggy. And hates his life because of the dreaded cone head, and has the runs. So there’s that.
Sorry Twi-Hards, back to you now…
I’m told Stewart and Pattinson were affectionate at the restaurant. Flirty kisses, no tongue, a lot of “inside looks and smiling”, a lot of “familiar touching”, like “two people who are close and comfortable with each other”, but she wasn’t riding him or anything. Having said that, there were definitely a few kisses. Happiness?
Which is a little different from what it’s like on set these days. Not that it’s not going well. It is. But my sources say there’s a “formality” to it that’s replaced the “collegiality” and “camp-like feel” that the cast used to have during the early days of production on the first film. Apparently it’s all very down to business, no drama, which is great, but the closeness they all once shared…it’s not the same. Very innocuous observations, nothing super juicy, but the mail from Twi-Hards has been really, really nice lately, I thought it might be fun for an update.
Rumor is that Kristen Stewart has filmed the Breaking Dawn scene where Bella meets J. Jenks to get legal documents for Renesmee (to give Jacob black custody of Renesmee in the event that the Cullens would be attacked). Here’s what HollywoodLife.com is reporting the following:
“One thing’s for sure: Kristen Stewart is working hard for her Breaking Dawn money. The 20-year-old Twilight star was rumored to be shooting scenes at a hotel in New Orleans, La., over the weekend and HollywoodLife.com has exclusively confirmed the location AND what went down while she was there! Kristen shot scenes inside the The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Collection Five Star Hotel, located in the heart of New Orleans near Louisiana’s famous French Quarter.
Our source tells us that Kristen was there Dec. 4, and spent “the entire day shooting inside the restaurant.” The Domenica is an Italian restaurant helmed up by internationally known chef John Besh.
Many fans believe Kristen was shooting the scene where Bella goes to meet J Jenks to get the papers for Jacob and Renesmée!”
The first and most bombastic is that Stephenie Meyer should come to Brazil, along with Rob and Kristen, to accompany the shooting. Yes, her, the author, the creator of everything, must step in brazilian territory as one of the producers on the film.
The second information is that Taylor also coming, with 99.9% certainty, is pure speculation, and also Mackenzie Foy. Only Rob and Kristen, and Sebastião Lemos and Carolina Virgüez, should participate as actors on the filming here, which makes more sense.
Informations from other sources tell us that the equipment for the filming will be rented in São Paulo and transported to Rio. It is estimated that only with the rental of those equipment they will be spending approximately 1 million of Reais (around $600 thousand dollars). Helicopters were reserved for aerial filming and three different islands were take in consideration for filming.
Regarding LAPA as a location, from the information that we obtained, it is possibly for a scene of the two main characters in a taxi on arrival at Rio de Janeiro, because they need a busy place, with a lot of people and strong lighting.
Paraty will indeed be the Headquarters for the crew and cast, which it will be divided into two luxurious Inns. It can also happen for them to use one of the Inns as a location for interior scenes in the house of Isle Esme. A security company was hired to errr … give full security to the crew and actors during their entire stay and armored cars have already been reserved.
Kaure, the maid of the Isle Esme and the first person to realize that Bella was pregnant, must be portraited by Carolina Virgüez, a colombian naturalized Brazilian actress with several awards and nominations as best actress in several national plays.
There will be 4 and half days of filming.
Some people from the crew must arrive before the actors to ‘prepare the ground “and meet with the several service providers. On 3 / 11 there will probably be a meeting between these people so that each of their functions can be assigned.
