There are a ton of rumors swirling around the making of Breaking Dawn, so we thought we’d run them down for you.
1. Boo Boo Stewart (Seth) mentioned that he is signed to the current movie, Eclipse, plus an additional two. This lead to speculation that Breaking Dawn would be split into two parts. The studio issued a statement to Access Hollywood that, “We appreciate our young actor’s enthusiasm for the franchise and his role, but his comments about the number of films were unfortunately uninformed and not accurate; however, the fans should rest assured the we’re working with Stephenie Meyer to bring ‘Breaking Dawn’ to the big screen.” and then Boo Boo’s reps stated that he only meant to talk about the first movie. So where did Boo Boo’s extra movies come from? Lots of times actors are standardly signed to a three movie deal regarding whatever project they make so the studio has them if the project takes off for sequels. For example, it’s how Pirates of the Caribbean II and II was made, the actors were signed to a three picture deal. When the first one unexpectedly took off, they were onboard for two more.
2. The Breaking Dawn tab on the Summit Official world of Twilight website would seem to indicate that the studio has acquired the rights to the film, (otherwise huge oops for lisiting something you don’t have the rights to). It could be at any stage of developement.
3. A website listing that Breaking Dawn would be three movies did so just picking up in the fact that the novel has three sections. they don’t have any insider info.
4. Other actors connected to the project supposedly stating that Breaking Dawn would start filming in February in Vancouver, two words: Winter Olympics. Those remarks remain rumor. If any movie manages to film in Vancouver while the city plays host to the Olympics this winter than hats off to them. It would be a logistical nightmare based on the traffic of the incoming visitors, not to mention that local production equipment/people get hired by the out-of-town media from every country in the world that is about to descend.
So what do we think? They’ll probably make Breaking Dawn, but the time frame is unknown.
