Breaking Dawn New List of Vampires
Thursday, September 30, 2010
Maggie Grace as a new Vampire threat in Breaking DawnTwilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. Grace, who played Liam Neeson's in-distress daughter in Taken, will play the role of Irina in the final installments of the Stephenie Meyer novel, which director Bill Condon is directing in two separate films.
Irina is a member of the Denali coven, considered cousins to the Cullen clan as the only other "vegetarian" vampire group. When Irina blames the Cullens for the death of her lover, her actions set in motion a terrifying chain of events. The first of two pictures will be released by Summit Entertainment on November 18, 2011, followed by the finale on November 16, 2012. Melissa Rosenberg is writing both scripts, and Wyck Godfrey, Karen Rosenfelt and Meyer are producing. Grace just completed the Dwayne Johnson-starrer Faster for CBS Pictures and re-teamed with Taken producer Luc Besson in Lockout, the outer space saga that stars Guy Pearce as a wrongly convicted man offered his freedom if he can rescue the president's daughter (Grace) from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates. Grace is also waiting to reprise in Taken 2. She is repped by UTA and Global Creative.

Lee Pace as Edwards BFF(Garrett) in Breaking Dawn?
Well, Twi-hards, it's time to learn and possibly fall in love because we're hearing Lee is thisclose to being cast as the newest vampire in the next installment of The Twilight Saga.
So what role would cutie Lee play?
Pace, perhaps best known from the before-its-time show Pushing Daisies, is up for the role of Garrett, a friend of Edward's (that would be Robert Pattinson, just in case you forgot).
The character is described in the script as a tall, nomadic vampire with sandy hair that he keeps tied back with a leather thong. Garrett is also penned as being down-to-earth, laid-back, rugged and having a lightness and element of humor about him.
"Lee is the top person in the running to play Garrett in Breaking Dawn," a source tells E! News
As we all know, Bill Condon is directing both Breaking Dawn films, and according to our insider, is "hoping to take it in a more artsy direction."
Just as long as it's not a musical, eh?
Production on Dawn is slated to begin this fall, though no exact date has been announced. This up-in-the-air start could be affecting Kristen Stewart, but we'll get to that tomorrow.
Lee Pace's manager and publicist have not returned our request for comment, while Summit says no one has been cast yet for the role of Garrett.
Most recently L.P. could be seen in A Single Man and When in Rome.
So do you all approve of the possible new vamp on the block? You know the studio trolls the blogs to read your thoughts, so time to speak up—or type it out—before the offer goes out!

Kristen Stewart wont wear a wig for Breaking Dawn
Her hair was cut to fit in appearance in the movie Runaways were she play as Joan Jet.
When George Lopez asked if the studio wanted her to do it, she said–
“Nooooo…they didn’t [want me to cut it]! They sort of freaking hate me for this, but they offered many ridiculous things not to do that.”
“I’m not going to have a wig in the next one–I’m just going to have my own hair”

Breaking Dawn could film in Louisiana
HollywoodNews.com: An interview with Wyck Godfrey on the red carpet during the premiere of “Eclipse” yielded some interesting news about “Breaking Dawn”. It turns out that the films may not be shot in Vancouver, or any other Pacific Northwest location, as had been assumed, but may actually be shot in the southern U.S. When asked when “Breaking Dawn” production would begin, said the producer, “I’m getting on a plane tomorrow, to Louisiana, to start scouting with Bill Condon, who’s directing the next two movies. And we’re going to start finding our locations and designing sets and we’re going to start shooting in November.”
A filming schedule in Louisiana could be a boon to the economically compromised state, as well as to the surrounding states of the greater gulf coast. Louisiana was just getting back on its feet after Hurricane Katrina, which made landfall nearly five years ago, when the massive BP oil spill recently compromised the state and the region anew.
A “Breaking Dawn” filming effort involving cast and crew alone would allow businesses in the region to recapture some of the lost income that came in the wake of destruction. In addition, the thousands of fans who would come to get a glimpse of movie production would bolster local businesses that much more.

'Breaking Dawn' Screenwriter Is 'Deep In the Middle' Of Script
"I'm deep in the middle of it," Rosenberg said of her progress on a script. "I've been working on it for several months now and it's a bear, but it's exciting."
Rosenberg, who has written the screenplays for all three "Twilight" films, also revealed that the "Dawn" adaptation is proving particularly challenging because of the sheer number of characters and the dense mythology behind it all.
"One of the biggest challenges, it's really true with all the novels, but probably more so with this one, is it's really thick with mythology, there are a lot of characters," she said. "The characters expand with the arrival of Carlisle's friends. It's really about who do you pull forward, where do you focus?"
Rosenberg said that though the story always centers on the three main characters — Edward, Bella and Jacob — she wants to make sure to explore the body of myths that fuel the vampire series. "That's the dance I'm playing throughout the entire thing," she said.
As for the cast of the "Twilight Saga," they seem to have welcomed news that the final chapter in the series will be a two-part story.
"I didn't want to read the script that was just one [movie]," Kristen Stewart recently told MTV News. "It would have lacked so much because you just couldn't cram the story into one. At least that was my opinion, so I'm really excited."
"Eclipse" opens June 30, and the first of the two "Breaking Dawn" films is scheduled for a November 18, 2011, release.

Birthing Scene according to Melissa Rosenberg
Now that it's been confirmed that "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" is being split into two flicks, fans want even more details on how screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg will adapt the Stephenie Meyer novel, which includes a lot of sex and an incredibly gory birthing scene, into two PG-13 films. Well, there's a good chance the graphic images of Bella in labor won't be shown at all, Rosenberg says.
"On the fan site, on Facebook, all the comments are, 'It has to be R rated! You have to show the childbirth! Gore and guts and sex!' For me it's actually more interesting to not see it," Rosenberg recently told the Los Angeles Times. "You know, you can do childbirth without seeing childbirth. ... It doesn't mean it's any less evocative of an experience."
When MTV News caught up with Rosenberg to talk about "Eclipse," she said she was going to leave a lot of those hard decisions, like how to show Bella giving birth to vampire spawn Renesmee, to director Bill Condon. "From a screenwriter standpoint that's gonna land more squarely in the director's hands," she teased. "That's one of those things [where] I kind of say [and] make a few sort of general suggestions on the page and say, 'Go! Go, Bill! Do it!' "
Franchise star Robert Pattinson told MTV News that he's glad he doesn't have to be the guy who decides how to bring the birthing scene to life. "I think that's going to be very funny," he said. "The only thing I know about it is the famous scene: the kind of cesarean scene ... I do not envy Bill Condon to have to think of some way to do that."

Officially in 2 Films
First Film to Arrive in Theatres November 18, 2011
Los Angeles, CA, June 10, 2010 – Summit Entertainment confirmed today that THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN will be released as two separate films with the first of the two slated to be released in theatres on November 18, 2011. Academy Award® winner Bill Condon will direct both films starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner along with Billy Burke as Charlie Swan as well as returning members of the Cullen Family including Peter Facinelli as Carlisle, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme, Jackson Rathbone as Jasper, Nikki Reed as Rosalie, Ashley Greene as Alice and Kellan Lutz as Emmett.
The project, based on the fourth novel in author Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, is currently being written by Melissa Rosenberg with Wyck Godfrey, Karen Rosenfelt and Stephenie Meyer producing. The TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN will start production in the Fall.
THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions.
The third film in the franchise, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE is due in theaters on June 30, 2010.
About the TWILIGHT SAGA film series

But neither can deny the attraction that pulls them together…even when Edward confides that he and his family are vampires. The action-packed, modern day vampire love story TWILIGHT, the first film in the series, was released in theatres on November 21, 2008 to a blockbuster reception.

'Twilight' negotiation update on Breaking Dawn Problems
As we first reported Monday, the actors who play the vampire Cullen kids (Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene) have rejected Summit Entertainment's offer to return for a fourth and fifth movie, thus holding up the studio's plan to send teenage girls into fits of euphoria by announcing that "Breaking Dawn" will be split into two installments.
Nicole Sperling at EW says they are demanding $4 million for each of the two "Breaking Dawns," but our sources close to the dealmaking say that number is high, and that reps for Lutz and Greene are asking for less than $2 million for each movie (for a total of about $4 million for both). The negotiation is just kicking into high gear, so these numbers could change; Sperling says co-star Nikki Reed has settled for a payday in the $750,000-$1 million range for each movie.
What are the secondary characters in a blockbuster franchise worth? That's always a tricky question, and especially here, where fans have such a close connection to the material and have come to associate the actors with their parts. On the other hand, "Eclipse" probably won't suffer at the boxoffice in June despite Victoria (Rachelle Lefevre) being recast after playing hardball.
Also, while the Cullen kids don't play a huge role in the second or third books, they're both in "Breaking Dawn" a lot more. That fact is said to be fueling the demands, though Summit won't lock the script for the final movies until it's a 100% done deal there will be two, so parts could still be minimized or beefed up.
Neither side expects a speedy resolution. Summit wants to move quickly but isn't afraid to recast. Reps for the actors want to make a deal but don't understand why the studio won't take care of the cast in a franchise that has generated more than $1 billion.
While fans might miss the secondary characters, we doubt Summit's boxoffice take would suffer if the Cullens are recast. Would it?
UPDATED: Earlier version of this post said Rachelle Lefevre was recast for "New Moon." Nope, she's in that one but was replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard for "Eclipse."

Breaking Dawn will start filming in October
Until now there has been no confirmation if the last instalment of Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling book series would be filmed.
It is thought the 754-page novel might be split into two feature films along the same lines as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, with hopes New Moon director Chris Weitz will return to the helm.
While Serratos’s Eclipse co-stars Gil Birmingham, Daniel Cudmore and Booboo Stewart remained coy about the film’s start date, the actor and sometime model accidentally let the cat out of the bag.
“No word is out yet,” Stewart said, to which Serratos quickly replied “No, October.”
Birmingham, who plays Taylor Lautner’s father Jacob Black, quickly tried to cover up the blunder.
“We could tell you, but we’d have to kill you – like we will Christian,” he said.
Stephenie Meyer will also be a Producer of Breaking Dawn
“Bringing Stephenie Meyer’s BREAKING DAWN to the screen requires a graceful and intelligent hand and we believe Bill Condon is exactly the right steward, having shown equal and abundant talents of immense creativity and subtle sensitivity,” said Erik Feig, President of Production and Acquisitions, for Summit Entertainment.
Added author Stephenie Meyer, “I’m so thrilled that Bill wants to work with us. I think he’s going to be a great fit, and I’m excited to see what he does with the material.”
“I’m very excited to get the chance to bring the climax of this saga to life on-screen. As fans of the series know, this is a one-of-a-kind book – and we’re hoping to create an equally unique cinematic experience,” said Bill Condon.
THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions.
Condon is well known for writing and directing DREAMGIRLS, KINSEY, and GODS AND MONSTERS, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay in 1999. He was nominated for a second Oscar for his screenplay for the movie musical CHICAGO in 2003. Most recently the multi-hyphenate directed the pilot episode for the Showtime series “The Big C” and produced the 81st Annual Academy Awards telecast, hosted by Hugh Jackman.
Bill Condon will direct Breaking Dawn
The question is whether or not Bill Condon (“Gods vs Monsters” and “Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh”) will finally put a positive spin on the pockmark that “Twilight” has put on the vampire genre.
“Breaking Dawn is split into three separate parts. The first part details Bella's marriage and honeymoon with Edward, which they spend on a private island off the coast of Brazil. Two weeks into their honeymoon, Bella realizes that she is pregnant and that her condition is progressing at an unnaturally accelerated rate. After contacting Carlisle, who confirms her pregnancy, she and Edward immediately return home to Forks, Washington. Edward, concerned for Bella's life and convinced that the fetus is a monster as it continues to develop with unnatural rapidity, urges her to have an abortion. However, Bella feels a connection with the child and refuses.
The novel's second part is written from the perspective of wolf shape-shifter Jacob Black, and lasts throughout Bella's pregnancy and childbirth. Jacob's Quileute wolf pack, not knowing what danger the unborn child may pose, plan to destroy it, also killing Bella. Jacob vehemently protests this decision and leaves, forming his own pack with Leah and Seth Clearwater. Bella soon gives birth, but the baby breaks many of her bones and she loses massive amounts of blood. In order to save her life, Edward changes her into a vampire by injecting his venom into her heart. Jacob, who was present for the birth, almost immediately "imprints"—an involuntary response in which a shape-shifter finds his soul mate—on Edward and Bella's newborn daughter, Renesmee. This ends the enmity between Jacob and the Cullens, leading Edward and Jacob to regard each other as brothers.
The third section of Breaking Dawn shifts back to Bella's perspective, finding her changed into a vampire and enjoying her new life and abilities. However, the vampire Irina misidentifies Renesmee as an "immortal child", a child who has been turned into a vampire. Because "immortal children" are uncontrollable, creating them has been outlawed by the Volturi. After Irina presents her allegation to the Volturi, they plan to destroy Renesmee and the Cullens. In an attempt to survive, the Cullens gather other vampire clans from around the world to stand as witnesses and prove to the Volturi that Renesmee is not an immortal child. Upon confronting the gathered Cullen allies and witnesses, the Volturi discover that they have been misinformed and immediately execute Irina for her mistake. However, they remain undecided on whether Renesmee should be viewed as a threat to vampires' secret existence. At that time, Alice and Jasper, who had left prior to the confrontation, return with a Mapuche called Nahuel, a 150-year-old vampire-human crossbreed like Renesmee. He demonstrates that the crossbreeds pose no threat, and the Volturi surrender. Edward, Bella and Renesmee return to their home in peace.”

Jackson Rathbone's idea for ‘Breaking Dawn’
Should "Breaking Dawn" be in 3-D? While all the "Twilight" stars have their own opinions, with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart not really digging the idea, MTV News caught up with Jackson Rathbone to get his take.
"I think some films work in 3-D, and some films don't," he told MTV News on the orange carpet at the Kids' Choice Awards over the weekend. "I don't necessarily think it should be 3-D, but, hey, you know, it's up for the production to decide."
Rathbone also weighed in on who should direct the flick. There are several big names up for the job — including Gus Van Sant, Sofia Coppola, Bill Condon and Stephen Daldry — but Rathbone has his own idea. "I'm really pulling for them to resurrect Stanley Kubrick and have him helm the film," he joked. "I'm really hoping for that. I want a zombie Stanley Kubrick to direct 'Twilight 4.' "
While that seems unlikely, Stewart and Pattinson are both rooting for Van Sant to come onboard. "He just makes stunning movies. I just love his work," Stewart said. "They've got so much depth. I feel that all of the movies have that [something]. I feel like all the directors have already brought that, but he's one of my favorites, so I would love that."
"He shoots everything in Portland," Pattinson said of why Van Sant would be perfect for the gig. "He's good at making it look beautiful."

Breaking Dawn in 3D by Kellan Lutz
“I heard they were talking about it. I don’t really care to see it in 3-D,” he told MTV News on the red carpet at Cosmopolitan magazine’s 2010 Fun Fearless Males party on Monday night in New York City.
Like Pattinson, Lutz isn’t a big fan of movies filmed in multiple dimensions. “3-D kind of hurts my eyes anyways. ‘Avatar’ was amazing in 3-D and in IMAX, but I don’t think I wanna see a little baby half-vampire in 3-D,” he said, echoing a similar sentiment made by Stewart. “There’s just some scenes I just wouldn’t want to see in 3-D.”
And with no formal announcement that more movies will be shot from the “Twilight Saga,” Lutz is in favor of breaking the book up into two flicks with “New Moon” helmer Chris Weitz back in the director’s chair, if the film should get the green light. “I’d love to see Chris Weitz come back,” he said late last year. “I just had so much fun shooting with him. I mean, obviously I would just love to do ['Breaking Dawn']. There’s no word. … Hopefully we get that phone call, and if they want to make it into five movies, I just don’t want it to end. I love my character so much.”

Kristen Stewart on Breaking Dawn: "Still Not Concrete"
"I have been told to be ready for November," Kristen Stewart tells me. "I mean, it looks like a 'yes,' but it's still not concrete."
Stewart believes the story in the fourth book in the Twilight series "absolutely warrants" being two films. "It would be hard to cram all of it into one movie," she said earlier today while promoting her new drama The Yellow Handkerchief.
Things have certainly changed since Stewart and Rob Pattinson signed on for the first flick...
"We didn't even know we were going to make a second one," Stewart said. "We were just like, 'It's really cool. It's different and we've never seen a love story like this.'…I thought it would just be another cool Catherine Hardwicke movie."
And just because Stewart doesn't like her private life being examined and the overzealous paparazzi that come along with the fame that doesn't mean she resents—in any way!—the Twilight phenomenon. "But I can't say I don't want that, because people take it to the extreme and say that I hate it," she explains. "No, no, no! That's not true."
Eddie Redmayne, Stewart's Handkerchief costar who also happens to be one of Pattinson's old pals, admits it's been "surreal" watching his friends become two of the world's, well, most famous stars.
"When we were at Sundance with Yellow Handkerchief, Kristen was like, 'I'm going to go do this film with Rob Pattinson," Redmayne remembered. "I was like, 'I know Rob!' and Kristen said, 'What's he like?'"
In Handkerchief, Stewart and Redmayne play teenagers who befriend an ex-con (William Hurt) who is looking for his ex-wife (Maria Bello).
Stewart and Redmayne share a kiss in the flick. I ask Stewart if she really meant it when she told my pal Elizabeth Snead at Zap2it that Mr. Redmayne was a better kisser than Mr. Pattinson.
Redmayne tried answering for her. "A slightly off-the-beaten-path person against the most handsome vampire in the world?" Redmayne said. "I will take my hat off to Rob on that one—and his skin shines!"
"But his skin doesn't shine in the real world," Kristen quickly fired back. "You're in the real world."
And just because Stewart did her own singing playing Joan Jett in next month's The Runaways, don't expect her to be following in Pattinson's footsteps by recording a song for a Twilight soundtrack.
"I love being an actor," she explained. "I would totally play another person in a band, but Kristen is not going to be in a band."

Breaking Dawn in 3D - what do you think?
Braking Dawn has been having issues lately regarding making it into 2 movies, but heres another issue about making it a 3D. Popwatch was able to gather pro and con ideas regarding Breaking Dawn in 3D:
Pro: For the studio, there’s the extra fee on the ticket, which is guaranteed to be a hot one for Twihards regardless of its decision. Also, the still rare 3D experience could lure in moviegoers who are on the fence.
Con: For the person who sees the Twilight films purely to keep current on pop culture, having to pay more will heighten any resentment he or she may feel if disappointed.
Pro: Fast-moving vampires and werewolves should look awesome in 3D. So should Bella and Edward getting busy…
Con: Shockingly, some Twilight fans don’t want to feel like they’re in the room (or water) for those intimate moments. In the eloquent words of Twitter users:
Pro: The visuals in the Twilight films have, frankly, always been stronger than the script. So let’s eye-candy it out.
Con: Some fans would prefer the focus be on story:
Hope you will also get some ideas and suggestions on how Breaking Dawn would be..

Marcus of Volturi talks Breaking Dawn
Today, though, the second portion of the interview has been released - only furthering our grip on his understanding of the series and his character - and he's had a little to say about The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.
"When is [Marcus] going to speak up?" Heyerdahl says, "When is it necessary to speak up and say, 'Guys, you’re going too far. You’re wrong.' That’s the fun of when he speaks in New Moon and perhaps when he speaks in Breaking Dawn those will be the reasons why. He’s always just sanding off the hard edges of his eager compatriots that are sometimes…"
Of course, what Heyerdahl is referring to is the boredom that his character exhibits throughout the whole series . . . that is, until Breaking Dawn.
[*Warning: This portion of the post contains spoilers about Breaking Dawn.*]
At the end of Breaking Dawn, the Volturi has a decision to make: do the Cullens and Renesmee get to go on with their happy existences, or are they a threat to the vampire world at large (thusly needing to be eradicated)?
Of course, Marcus - one of the three votes on the matter - has to step in and side with the Cullens on the issue. So, clearly Christopher Heyerdahl is already readying his mind for what his character portrayal will entail with Breaking Dawn (which, of course - standard caveat - is an as-yet-unofficial film). Pretty exciting, huh?

Kristen Stewart thoughts about Renesmee
"I don't even know if it's going to be one [film] or two, or who is directing it, or when it's even going [to start]," she admitted. "I know that it's going to go, but not when yet."
The most important issue facing Kristen's character is the birth of Edward and Bella's baby daughter Renesmee. In Stephenie Meyer's novel, Renesmee's birth is so graphic that Bella nearly dies but is ultimately converted into a vampire and saved by Edward. While the scene is currently unwritten as far as the "Breaking Dawn" script goes, Kristen is eager to learn how it will translate from book to film.
"I haven't seen a script, but I'm not alone in really, really wondering how they're going to handle that," she said.
As important as the birth scene itself is the baby that is born. Will Renesmee be played by an actual baby or will she be given the CGI treatment? It's a tricky question that Kristen doesn't have an easy answer for, but one thing is certain — Renesmee has to be adorable.
"Little Renesmee, she's got to be cute," said the actress. "She can't just be this scary superhuman teeth baby!

Peter Facinelli hopes for a PG-13 Breaking Dawn
Peter Facinelli the patriach Dr. Carisle Cullen recently talks to Hollywood Life regarding the production of Breaking Dawn as he is a 37 year old father to a 12 year old daughter who is also a big twi-hard fan.
However, Peter Facinelli—who plays hot vampire patriarch Carlisle Cullen—has made us see the error of our ways.
“I have a 12-year-old daughter [Luca Bella, whose mom is Jennie Garth]. She’s a fan and I’d want her not to feel left out or awkward,” Peter, 37, explained to HollywoodLife.com exclusively Jan. 16 at Lionsgate’s pre-Golden Globes party.
“Hopefully it’s a PG-13 type of situation,” he added. “I’m sure the producers and directors know what they want—and especially what they are doing—but I’m sure they don’t want to alienate fans.”

Lainey Exclusive Breaking Dawn Rumors
"Some non-romance related updates for you Twi-Hards, this has to do with shooting location in response to the daily flurry of emails I receive for production information related to the 4th and possibly 5th movie(s).
You’ll recall I was the first to report that due to provincial tax credit drama and competing incentives, Portland became a more viable location. Despite reports elsewhere, as of this weekend, no final decision has been made. Having said that, Vancouver remains Summit’s first choice even though the tax credit situation has yet to be sorted.
My sources tell me exclusively Summit representatives met with the BC government just before Christmas to see if a favourable arrangement could be worked out. That meeting concluded with NO commitments from government officials who explained that they were not prepared to look at any new tax structure until after the Olympics. Summit was hoping to make a decision sooner.
Further, many crew members who worked on Twilight New Moon and Eclipse are now working on the new Fox show Human Target (shot in Vancouver) which enjoyed a solid debut the other night. As of two days ago, those crew members have not been informed of any movement to go back to Twilight. Yet.
There’s been some buzz among certain local special effects firms that a contract is coming, anticipating a June start date. The timing is encouraging for those lobbying for a Twilight return. This would allow for 3 months of prep before principle photography in September. So it looks promising… but there are still many variables at play. Will keep you posted."
Eclipse Movie will be on theaters June 30 2010 and they could start filming for Breaking Dawn earlier than that and its making fans now real excited for the upcoming sequels

Stephenie Meyer response to Breaking Dawn's Issue
Stephenie Meyer responded to issues how will the Breaking Dawn movie will go. There has been issues that the movie basing on the book will be in 2 or even more film just to fit on the story. But Stephenie Meyer released at statement in her website in her response to this issue.
Just a quick note on the subject of the Breaking Dawn film: there is no drama over whether the book should be one movie or two. My personal feeling is that it would be very difficult to cram the whole story into one movie (as I've said in many interviews previous to this), but if a great way of doing that surfaces, I'm all for it. Two or one, whichever way fits the story best is fine by me, and everyone I've spoken with at Summit seems to feel the same way. We're all excited to move forward on this, and we are slowly and surely getting there. I know people are anxious for news, and so sometimes gossip gets fabricated to stir things up, but there's no basis to this particular story.
Breaking Dawn will begin shooting this fall
