The Wrap (and industry insider and information website) is claiming that Breaking Dawn has been greenlit for 2010. It is their belief that the film will shoot starting winter 2010 for a late 2010 release with Vancouver remaining as the filming location.
Despite their claim, Summit gave the following comments when The Wrap went to verify the story:
“Summit Entertainment spokesman Paul Pflug declined to confirm or deny the report, saying only, “Summit has no comment on that rumor at this time.”
“But a Summit executive who declined to be identified said that there was no production schedule for “Breaking Dawn,” and no current plans to shoot in Vancouver. “
They also mention the rumor, that was the subject of an Internet war of words between Nikki Finke and a Summit executive, that Juan Antonio Bayora will be helming Eclipse. Summit has confirmed that he was being considered, but has not revealed who if anyone has landed the job.
Is it Greenlit or not? Your guess is as good as ours, no one is going to say for sure unless the ink is dry on all contracts.
