Official word just broke that the Breaking Dawn movie will be shot in Rio!
The President of the Rio Film Commission has finally confirmed that Breaking Dawn production is headed to Rio:
“Dawn will be shot in Rio in November. With full support of the Rio Film Commission. For security reasons I can not say when and where. The Mayor and Governor Eduardo Paes Cabral directly engaged to enable the filming of Breaking Dawn in the River Plate Gol!
An estimated investment of U.S. $2 million into the economy of Rio seems all right to come and Dawn team is filmed here.
Can not say anything else. I count on your understanding. I think Rio is consolidating as a destination for international productions!
All security measures will be taken to ensure a smooth shoot. The City Council and Gov. of the State will provide needed support.”
As always, TheBreakingDawnMovie.org will keep you all posted on any Breaking Dawn Movie news!
Breaking Dawn Movie cast announcements have been released left right and center, but we haven’t heard much about who will be returning from the Volturi cast members, or the humans. However, we do know, thanks to Variety, that Michael Sheen (aka Aro) is returning to reprise his role. They write:
“Michael Sheen is returning as a vampire leader in Summit’s “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.”
The British thesp closed his deal with the studio to reprise his turn as Aro, the leader of the vampire royalty Volturi.
Bill Condon is directing “Breaking Dawn,” based on the final tome in the series, in two parts. Book centers on the mortal Bella (Kristen Stewart) marrying the vampire Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella giving birth to a half-vampire, half-human daughter.”
Here is a pic of Nikki Reed in Baton Roughe on the set of the Breaking Dawn movie with fans! Looks like she’s in Rosalie makeup!There’s a fan report (really good) below, too:
Edit: Here’s a new one of Ashley Greene with Joe Jonas in Baton Rouge as well with the same fans!
Fan Report from the Breaking Dawn set (from fans pictured above):
Nikki Reed was leaving Perkins Rowe in a Range Rover after a meeting. When she saw us waving she rolled down the window! She was extremely sweet!
We also met Joe Jonas and Ashley Greene in Fresh Market at Perkins Rowe. Perkins Rowe is a place with shops, apartments (which is where they are staying), restaurants (Joe and Ashley were seen eating a California Pizza Kitchen), a super market (fresh Market which is where we saw them), a movie theater, and a gym (Kellan was spotted here)! They were also extremely sweet! We actually saw them 3 times including in Joe’s rental car.
I also met Kellan Lutz as he was getting out of a car and being rushed into a meeting by his body guard. Me (in the purple plaid) and my friend (in the black) talked to him but did not get a picture since he was being rushed and said he was late.
Rob was seen riding his bike around the Lakes on LSU campus!
Taylor and Kellan have also been spotted working out!
But no signs of Kristen… yet!
As we all know, Ashley Greene is currently in Baton Rouge with her boyfriend Joe Jonas to begin filming Breaking Dawn! Some lucky locals have been able to snap a pic with the duo, so check out the pics below. I also added a Tweet from Ashley from the Breaking Dawn location where she said she had an early call time this morning.
Kristen Stewart recently sat down with LA Times and chatted all about the Breaking Dawn movie! She talked about her diet, becoming a mom for the movie and more:
On her Breaking Dawn diet:
“I want a cheeseburger so badly, but, you know, I have to be a vampire in a few weeks,” she said over lunch at a restaurant in Topanga, where she settled for a veggie burger.
On being pregnant in Breaking Dawn & trying on fake bellies:
“I’m incredibly pregnant in the first movie,” Stewart said, adding that she has spent the last couple of weeks trying on prosthetic bellies. “I’ve worn it. It’s … crazy. I’ve done fittings. It gets immense. It gets so massive at some point that it actually looks inhuman. Like it’s hurting her. There are striations of bruises.”
Summit Entertainment has just announced The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 will get released on November 16, 2012. While the studio had previously announced Breaking Dawn would be two movies, no release date had been set for part two, until now.
My question to you: How do you feel about waiting one full year for the second part of the Breaking Dawn movie? And they will without a doubt leave us with a giant cliffhanger. This will be torture, but worth it!
The Release Date For the Breaking Dawn Movie Part 1 is November 18th 2011.
Here is the Tweet from the official Twilight Twitter page:

Now that we know Breaking Dawn is going to be made into two films, the question that still lingers is where will they end Breaking Dawn Part 1 and begin Breaking Dawn part 2?
Here is some insight & suggestions from the Examiner:
Most fans seem to agree that the childbirth/transformation area is a suitable stopping point range, but there is still some disagreement as to the exact moment it should happen.
Some suggestions for the moment have included:
Bella opening her new, red eyes after her three day incapacitation with a fade to black to start up her vampire experience in part two at the same point;
A pan to Jacob’s face as he first lays eyes upon Renesmee (though not showing Renesmee so as to save her image for a part two surprise – or, in more practical terms, to avoid any problems with the actress aging if there is any time lapse between filming the two);
Having Bella’s vision and heartbeat fade out as it did just after Renesmee is rescued from the womb in part one and then having Edward rescue her for the beginning of part two;
Subtracting the entire birth sequence altogether and having Bella begin to go into labor in part one with a “to be continued” and a montage of subtle, non-graphic, and perhaps blurred or quickened clips of the delivery as the beginning of part two; and
Having Jacob overhear the room’s goings-on rather than us actually seeing them, and having his expressions and words close out the first film.
I personally would love it to end where Jacob says he hears another heartbeat. I am quite visual and can picture the scene out in my head entirely. The heart would start out soft, then get louder – then it would cut to Jacob acknowledging it. The quote is:
“From upstairs, there was a new sound. The only sound that could touch me in this endless instant.
