Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson Heading Back for Breaking Dawn Reshoots
04.15.12 by Chris
Despite the fact that filming on the final Twilight installments, Breaking Dawn 1 and 2, finished nearly a year ago, looks like Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will play Edward and Bella one more time.
On the movie's official Facebook page, director Bill Condon announced Stewart and Pattinson are returning to Vancouver, British Columbia, for reshoots for this November's Breaking Dawn: Part 2.
Greetings from Los Angeles, where we’re hard at work on BREAKING DAWN, PART TWO. It’s truly crazy to think that it’s been a year since we wrapped production in Vancouver, since for those of us in the editing room the work has never stopped.
A film is a lot like a puzzle, with each piece – each shot, no matter how brief – needing to fit exactly with the ones around it. Our Part Two puzzle is finally coming into full view, and in a few weeks we’ll be heading back north to pick up some additional shots – the last tiny missing pieces. We’re not shooting any new scenes or dialogue, just some technical work with some of our cast and stunt actors.
I am really looking forward to being back on set with some of the friends I’ve made on my Twilight journey, like the great Guillermo Navarro, our cinematographer, and his crew. And yes, Rob and Kristen will be there too, to pop in those gold contacts one last time…
I’m excited to report that before too long we’ll have another trailer for you to decode. And wait until you see the first posters — they’re unlike any “Twilight” images you’ve seen before. And then November 16th will be upon us and the final film will be yours!
Until then, have a very happy spring, and I’ll check back in with you soon.
Unlike Joss Whedon's rumored Avengers reshoots, Condon will have a few months to work the new footage into the movie. Reshoots are rather common for large productions, especially for back-to-back productions (both parts of Breaking Dawn were filmed consecutively). While filming the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Peter Jackson called back the cast several times for reshoots.
