The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn to Start Filming in November
Posted 08.10.10 by reelz
At the 2010 Teen Choice Awards, where The Twilight Saga took home 11 awards, Access Hollywood caught up with stars Alex Meraz (Paul), Ashley Greene (Alice) and Jackson Rathbone (Jasper). It wasn't long before talk turned to the upcoming fourth movie Breaking Dawn, which has already caused quite a debate among fans of the well-loved saga.
Greene talked about how the Teen Choice Awards "definitely hit their [Twilight] demographic", while Rathbone joked about how noise levels caused him to "lose a certain amount of treble in his hearing". He went on to talk about the fans, saying "to have that adoration, that support and love, that's what you need as an artist. It really fulfills you".
When asked when Breaking Dawn is due to start filming, Greene didn't have a set date to share with fans, instead saying, "I know it's towards the end of the year, but we haven't got dates or anything". Rathbone also had no further information, saying "I'm very curious to find out myself. I haven't even seen a full script for Breaking Dawn yet, Parts 1 or 2. I know what's going to happen, I just don't know which parts they're choosing."
Alex Meraz, part of the Quileute wolf pack, was a little more specific on the subject of Breaking Dawn's start date.
"Definitely November, but we're supposed to start rehearsals in October, some parts in Louisiana and some parts in Vancouver. We're going to film it all at once, and in post-production they're breaking it up into 2 films. The weirdest part for us is that we're going to shoot it, and it's going to be 2 years until the final one [is released]. We're going to have to think of stories to tell for interviews."
See the video interviews below, and let us know where you think they'll split Breaking Dawn. At Renesmee's birth, perhaps? Unfortunately, only Melissa Rosenberg and Co. know the answer to that one.
