NOLA.COM: Studio Appears Serious About Moving ‘Breaking Dawn’ Production to Louisiana


Two new developments arrive this morning related to the whisperings that Summit Entertainment is considering shooting the next film in the “Twilight” series (which may actually be two films) somewhere in Louisiana.

‘One of them doesn’t say a whole lot. The other, however, seems to be significantly more telling as to exactly how serious Summit Entertainment is about moving the production here.

First, Summit this morning (Monday, May 17) responded to my inquiry of last week for comment on the rumors, first reported in a story in The Hollywood Reporter that relied on an unnamed source for its inside information.

The studio’s statement came a few days too late for my story — which ran in Saturday’s editions of The Times-Picayune — and it was unsuprisingly vague. Here’s it is, in its entirety: “No details have been confirmed regarding ‘Breaking Dawn’ aside from the fact that Bill Condon will be directing.”

Insert shrug here.

The second, more telling, development comes in the form of incorporation papers filed last week with the Louisiana Secretary of State’s office by an agent for Summit and establishing a new corporate entity called “TSBD LOUISIANA, L.L.C.” — which would seem to stand for “Twilight: Saga Breaking Dawn.”

Of course, filing incorporation papers is a long way from booking soundstages and crewing up — but as early signs go, it’s a good one that there might be truth to these rumors.

“Twilight: Breaking Dawn” would be based on the fourth book in the popular vampire-romance series, and there has been talk that it could be broken into two movies. Summit is hoping to beging production this fall.
