"The Twilight Saga's New Moon" is still in the process of filming and its follow-up "Eclipse" has yet to have a director attached, but words are making their rounds that "Breaking Dawn" is already in early planning stages. The Wrap recently broke the news, reporting that an insider claimed this fourth film in the "Twilight" series is likely to start shooting in late spring 2010.
The publication further noted that cast members are expected to join the production in Vancouver after few months break following "New Moon" promo and "Eclipse" shooting. Still, when contacted of the matter, Summit Entertainment spokesman Paul Pflug declined to confirm or deny the report. "Summit has no comment on that rumor at this time," he said. An unnamed studio executive, in addition, stated that there was no production schedule for the fourth film and no current plans to shoot in Vancouver.
While nothing about "Breaking Dawn" is certain yet, "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" has officially begun its production in Vancouver. The first sequel to "Twilight" will follow Bella Swan as she is left devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love Edward. But, her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black. Suddenly she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and she finds her loyalties tested.
Aiming for November 20 U.S. release, the movie is directed by "The Golden Compass" helmer Chris Weitz using the script penned by "Twilight" screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg. Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and several other original cast members return to reprise their roles, while Dakota Fanning, Noot Seear and Michael Sheen join them as the Volturi clan members.
