Breaking Dawn Not Shot in 3-D

A site claiming to have information on Breaking Dawn being shot in 3-D has been debunked by Gossip Cop. Gossip Cop has checked and according to Summit:

A rep for Summit tells Gossip Cop, “Neither film is being shot in 3D,” and calls the rumors “fabricated.”

And a source informs Gossip Cop that while 3D effects can be added during post-production (as they have with some recent releases), right now it is too premature to say whether either part of Breaking Dawn will be converted.

See the entire statement on Gossip Cop.

One site running the rumor has now edited their post to remove the previously incorrect material. They have previously incorrectly cited the following information regarding Stephenie Meyer projects:

  • Breaking Dawn would be made into three movies.
  • Lana Veenker as a casting director for Breaking Dawn resulting in a flurry of calls and emails to her office.
  • The Host movie would be shortly cast in Culver City and shot in early 2011.
  • At one point a site claiming to have casting information took the unusual step of issuing a press release  stating the film would shoot in Portland by Gus Van Saant.

So to recap Breaking Dawn info:

  • 2 movies released in November 2011 and 2012 respectively
  • Not currently shooting in 3-D, but it could be added in post production like it was for The Last Airbender.
  • Directed by Bill Condon
  • Shooting in Louisiana, Vancouver and potentially Brazil (still under negotiation)
  • Info on casting found here.


  1. thank god!

  2. I sure hope that they don’t make BD a 3-D movie.

  3. Can I just say that the thought of waiting until november 2011 to see BD is just downright depressing?! That’s all 🙂

  4. I don’t want to see BD done in 3D. However if going to do it at all, it should be filmed not done in post-production.

  5. I Dont See Why They Would Shoot The Movie In 3-D. Who Would Want To See Renesmee Born In 3-D? That Would Ruin The Experence, Right?? 😐

  6. Thank god! 3D hurts my eyes and would ruin everything for me, at least. If they do add 3D in later, at least release a 2D version as well.

  7. I hope they don’t make it 3D especially if the 3D will be added in post production. In my opinion the only 3D movie that pulled it off was AVATAR the others just downright sucks!

  8. Thank goodness!!! I don’t want to see either one in 3D. 3D is being overdone as it is.
    Can’t wait to see the Saga continue on the big screen 🙂

  9. I would LOVE to see the second part in 3D just to make sens the difference between the “human eyes” and the “vampire eyes”, as how a vampire sees the world.. if you get what i mean.

    In the book we get to know that everything looks so different when you are a vampire, you see every single particle of dust, even a color that human can identify.. so the 3D would be a good choice for people to get into “the vampire skin”.. it would be amazing and beautiful, and the effects could be great also for the final “battle” (not as a action-fight but as it is in the book) when bella is using the shield to protect the others..

    Anyway, the movies here come in 3D AND 2D anyways, so the people who don’t like seeing it in 3D can just see it in 2D .. so I don’t understand why all the complains about the 3D (go see it in a 2D format) 😐

  10. the only one that could have possibly worked in 3D was eclipse.
