The Volturi Captured in New Spy Pics from the Set of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

Last month, Twilight fans got a few sneak peeks at Bella and Edward (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson) on the Brazilian set of the penultimate chapter in The Twilight Saga movie franchise, Breaking Dawn: Part 1. Now, some spy pics of the unofficial royal family of the vampire world, the Volturi, have leaked online.
It wasn't specified where the pics were taken, but based upon the heavy coats the cast and crew are wearing, it appears as if the production has moved on from Brazil to Vancouver, Canada, which doubles as Forks, Washington, the setting of much of the franchise. In the Breaking Dawn novel by creator Stephenie Meyer on which the movie is based, the Volturi travel to Forks to destroy Bella and Edward's child, Renesmee, who they believe to be a child vampire or an "immortal child," a creature forbidden by Volturi law.
Breaking Dawn: Part 1 was written by Melissa Rosenberg, the writer of all three of the previous Twilight movie adaptations. Bill Condon, director of the award-winning 2006 musical Dreamgirls, helms Breaking Dawn: Part 1, making him the fourth director on the franchise, following Catherine Hardwick, Chris Weitz and David Slade.
