Brazil Filming: The Sunday Update, Lapa Streets Blocked Off and Stephenie Visits With Fans

According to FoForks a series of streets in the LAPA section of Rio are closed today for Breaking Dawn filming. Preparations included changing the names on the street signs and adding in some graffiti. Rumor has it that it’s a scene involving a taxi driving through the streets of Rio. There is also some speculation about a scene involving Jacob and Nessie on the run in Rio (Bella’s vision/plan in Breaking Dawn II). However, in that neither Taylor Lautner nor MacKenzie Foy have been spotted in Brazil, that is seeming less likely.

Filming is scheduled for around 8:00pm local time. It is unknown whether anything will be filmed within sight of crowds standing behind established barriers. For other movies various outdoor scenes have been observable such as the confrontation with the frat boys in Twilight, the Italy scenes in New Moon, and Riley’s transformation in Eclipse.  Other times outdoor sequences have kept the crowds at bay such as footage shot a Jacob’s house during both New Moon and Eclipse. Assuming fans standing behind barriers will be able to see, we will have that footage later.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart (or Ashley Greene for that matter) have not ventured outside the hotel. Stephenie Meyer has gone out. Yesterday she had dinner out with fellow producer Wyck Godfrey(I told you guys in Brazil you should be paying more attention to the middle-age, pasty, white guys in glasses! :p If Wyck was their earlier and unobserved, you can bet Bill Condon is there too! ). One fan who was eating at the same restaurant has her account on Foforks.

“Look, me, my mother and my friends (and Rafaella Julia Perez, and her sister) Found Out That Stephenie was going to Porcão (restaurant), and went there. Then, we got in, made friendship to the waiter, and When We Were done eating, Looked at her table and saw her coming to Our table. Then I thought, “Wow, I can not believe it.” Then she cam, Talked to us, I Told her I have a blog and like to write, and She Gave Me the super advice, she told me to never stop writing , told me to write EVERY day, all my dreams, my desires, That Was That She started this way. She was really caring and affectionate, I loved her. Then she signed books and took Our pictures, then left. There Were her with the security, the translator and another security. She looks like a doll and is really caring, and I loved meeting her.”

After the filming tonight, which could go quite late, the cast and crew are going to move to the Isle Esme location which by all reports is a distance from Rio and has to be reached via boat and/or helicopter.

  1. is it so bad that i’m super jealous?

  2. Ashley Greene, isn’t in Rio de Janeiro anymore, she left, she’s now in LA

  3. Would love to meet Stephenie.

  4. Wouldn’t every Twilight fan want to meet Stephenie Meyer? I like the movies but the books are beautiful and if wasn’t for her dream we wouldn’t have anything.

  5. Chernaudi says:

    No nutso fans, plenty of security and fans and police keeping paps and tabloid people at bay. Why can’t Kristen, Rob, or even Stephenie get that treatment here in the US?!

    Yeah, I know of the hotel hostage deal, and that Formula 1 driver Jenson Button was nearly robbed in Sao Paulo Saturday night. But these aren’t problems only in Brazil. Name one big city anywhere that doesn’t have it’s crime problems. That’s a pretty short list, no matter if it’s in North America, South America, Europe or else where.

    Nice to see that the Brazilian fans are respectful, better than what I can say of some fans elsewhere. And the security and police know what they’re doing, both preventing and resolving crisis. Who ended that hotel stand off without innocent casualties? The Rio Police and Brazilian Military Police! Who saved Jenson from being robbed or car-jacked? A Brazilian police officer well versed in performance driving as well as armed and hand-to-hand combat! I wouldn’t screw with those guys, because it seems that what you give them they’ll give back twice as bad!

    Maybe police and anti-terror squads can learn something from the Brazilians, and the fans who don’t behave themselves, as it seems that there’s some pretty good self-policing going on there, too.

  6. What a nice picture!

  7. I am a 34 year-old woman. Wife. Mother. Full-time professional. And #1 on my “Bucket List” is to meet Stephenie Meyer… maybe someday 😉 Way to go!

  8. wow, i’ve been to that restaurant a few times, so cool to think that’s where SM is hanging out now! they are so lucky to be filming in rio, what a fantastic city! hope they are really enjoying their time there.
