Breaking Dawn Filming in The ‘Couve this Fall?

11 01 2010

Cliff’s Notes for the reading impaired:

  • Vancouver – not Portland, as has been rumored
  • This fall – that’s as good as we get for dates so far
  • Chris Weitz is not confirmed, and not even likely
  • Still no decision on whether it will be 1 movie or 2

Here’s a bit of the L. A. Times interview with Twilight Saga producer Wyck Godfrey from last Friday:

Wyck Godfrey, the producer of all the films in the “Twilight” saga, admits that the creative team still doesn’t know how they’ll handle the character [Renesmee?] in the “Breaking Dawn” movie, but said that the plan is absolutely for the production to go forward — as either one or two installments — with an eye toward beginning to shoot in Vancouver this fall. All three stars are signed for “Breaking Dawn,” he said, meaning that Stewart and Pattinson will be dealing with the joys and woes of interspecies parenting and newly minted heartthrob Taylor Lautner will return as often-shirtless shape-shifter Jacob Black.

Although there’s been a great deal of online chatter about whether Chris Weitz, director of the second and most recent movie, “New Moon,” would return to helm “Breaking Dawn,” Godfrey downplayed that possibility, saying, “I think everyone would be happy and excited if he came back, but I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

He and the other principals are formulating a list of potential directors, “but right now,” Godfrey said, “we’re just focused on the treatment and getting that right. At that point, we’re going to see who’s available and who’s appropriate. It’s such a complicated book because you have the emotions and the intensity of the love story — so you need somebody who’s just a wonderful director of actors — and yet it’s really complicated from an action and visual effects standpoint. They’ve got to have both tools in their kit.”

A visual effects background might be particularly helpful when it comes to dealing with the character of Renesmee.

The third movie in the series, “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” is due in theaters June 30.

Meet the Wolf Pack – New Behind the Scenes Featurette

7 11 2009

OK, before you watch this video, note on the video still that one of the wolves is labeled “P.Wolf” … now what do you think that P stands for?

P-P-p-paaaAAAaarrrtyyyy!! (hahahh sorry)

But for realz, this vid is actually kind of awesome – it goes into the CGI animation and all that “making of” technical shizz, and it also includes interviews with Chaske Spencer, Alex Meraz (PW), TayLaut, KStew and director Chris Weitz. Pretty tight.

R.P. in Japan, killin it

2 11 2009

Poor boy must be seriously jet lagged. But nevertheless Rob was a good sport as he partied with pals in Japan. He went to Tokyo’s trendy Ginza district less than 24 hours after arriving in the Far East.


who dat?


he has an umbrella holder, so tight, so P.Diddy

Robear was partying with New Moon director Chris Weitz, they spent more than four hours dining at the three Michelin star L’osier French restaurant. Probably had lots of gruyere, brie and bordeaux even though they we’re in Japan, that’s just how he does it. He can do whatever he wants. He’s Rob!

Real talk: Comic Con NM Panel Re-Cap

23 07 2009

OK so there were NO VIDEOS allowed this year at the panel, unlike last year. SO I am going to do my very best to re-cap, alliecupcake style. And for the record, I was not in attendance, this is what I have gathered from the press and twitter.

First off the panel this year included: Director Chris Weitz, K-Stew, Robear, Ashley Adorable Greene, and TayLaut.  No Nikki 😦  But then again Rosalie isn’t a big part of New Moon so I wont make sadface.


interesting seating arrangement

interesting seating arrangement

As you can see, Taylor was sat in between Kstew and Robear. Why? Maybe because Jacob really actually does come between them in the movie. Maybe Summit was trying to shake things up with the fans.

First they really got people hyped with showing a little tastey-taste of the movie. They showed a clip of the motorcycle scene with Jacob and Bella, also showing what Bella’s ghost like hallucinations of Edward will look like. Fans need to see this, New Moon is practically Edward Cullen-less. I am hoping that something leaks onto youtube…

Then questions from the fans. I am not going to re-cap all of these I will just key point the best ones.

First can I say apparently someone dressed as Dracula got up and asked Rob how he could be a better Dracula? LOLZ, Summit threw this question out, but props to that guy and his BALLS.

Through the fan questions, we learned various things- Taylor did all his own stunts, Rob just stood by and “looked pretty”. When the director was asked what the actors bring to their roles he said Rob was “cold and sparkly”, I like this guy, he makes funnies.

My favorite fan question- What are the actors looking forward to?

Ashley- Doing fight scenes in Eclipse, Taylor- the tent/ sleeping bag scene in Eclipse, KStew- “I can’t wait to actually get pregnant”, Rob- “Actually, being involved in the cesarean, I just can’t wait.”  Too effing funny. That was your price of admission right there kids.


"I will never do comedy, I am not very funny"  yeah right

"I will never do comedy, I am not very funny" yeah right

Taylor and Rob also rocked the dueling plaid shirts, and K-Stew was still very Joan Jett looking.


is she playing hard to get or WHAT?

is she playing hard to get or WHAT?

Now this is where Imma get all “alliecupcake” on you. I just have to say my peace about this. A LOT of you were mega pissed that Kristen didn’t come looking more “Bella”. Some of you even tweeted about extentions should have been put in her hair, that she showed up “out of it” dare I say “cracked out” and was completely moody and awkward. When have we known Kristen to be anything BUT awkward? If that bitch had shown up with some Hollywood-ass weave in, after we KNOW she was on SET filming the Runaways YESTERDAY in L.A., how fake would that be? She is REAL. This is why we love her. Or so I thought. She has been immersed in playing JOAN MOTHEREFFING JETT for about 2 months now. Joan Jett in heydey! Cracked out,moody, brooding, rocker chick Joan Jett. She was filming yesterday, you can see I was still mullet watching this morning!. She probably has to go right back on set tomorrow. At what point in her day was she to get this weave put in? Gimme a break.  You can’t expect someone to snap out of one character and into the other like that. No good actor should have to do that. I personally kind of feel bad for them for having to drop everything they are working on and just show up to Comic Con with screaming crazy fans. But they do it. Cause they love and appreciate us. Can we do the same back please? Kristen was doing Kristen. She’s great. Plus we all know she enjoys smoking the Devil’s Cabbage and maybe, just maybe her and JJ smoked a joint before the Comic Con. But that’s just speculation…


Okay now that I am finished, you should probably know that after they took fan questions and had a few laughs, they decided to show another CLIP. An ITALY CLIP! The scene where Bella and Alice are racing to save Edward, and then she runs thru the fountain! I heard it was nothing less than glorious. Part of me wants to see this, part of me wants to save it for November 20, 2009. Real talk.
