Louisiana filming location for “Breaking Dawn” would be an economic boon to the state
By Kim Palacios
HollywoodNews.com: An interview with Wyck Godfrey on the red carpet during the premiere of “Eclipse” yielded some interesting news about “Breaking Dawn”. It turns out that the films may not be shot in Vancouver, or any other Pacific Northwest location, as had been assumed, but may actually be shot in the southern U.S. When asked when “Breaking Dawn” production would begin, said the producer, “I’m getting on a plane tomorrow, to Louisiana, to start scouting with Bill Condon, who’s directing the next two movies. And we’re going to start finding our locations and designing sets and we’re going to start shooting in November.”
A filming schedule in Louisiana could be a boon to the economically compromised state, as well as to the surrounding states of the greater gulf coast. Louisiana was just getting back on its feet after Hurricane Katrina, which made landfall nearly five years ago, when the massive BP oil spill recently compromised the state and the region anew.
A “Breaking Dawn” filming effort involving cast and crew alone would allow businesses in the region to recapture some of the lost income that came in the wake of destruction. In addition, the thousands of fans who would come to get a glimpse of movie production would bolster local businesses that much more.
