Breaking Dawn Filming News: Press Conference With Director Bill Condon In Rio

Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon gave a press conference earlier today in Brazil.  Here’s the English translation  of the R7 article of the  press conference.

In a rush for the filming of Dawn, the fourth film in the Twilight Saga, director Bill Condon gave a press conference on the afternoon of Monday (8) at Cine Roxy in Copacabana, south of Rio de Janeiro.

The director told R7 actors Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are enjoying the affection of fans.

- Both me and they’re enjoying the affection of fans. Incidentally, I want to say it to them (Rio). We are enjoying the warmth of the crowd and the city.

The director said the choice of the city as a location was stimulated by Rio Films, co-producer of Dawn, who decided to include the state capital in the script of the story.

- Rio is a very vibrant place, so we decided that the city would come in the film. We wanted this vibration was evident at Dawn. We did a scene in Lapa Edward [Pattinson] and Bella [Kristen] to show the real side of carioca culture.

Condon also said that the aim of production was less stereotyped find places on the screens. Therefore, there was the option for the island and Lapa bag Mamanguá in Paraty, on the southern coast of Rio, where the team should follow today.

The producer, Wyck Godfrey, revealed that filming with the actors in the river have been closed. Sergio Sa Leitao, president of River Films, added that the staff of Sunrise should be back to Rio just to make aerial images of the city.

Asked if the couple had time to know the city, the director said the entire schedule was planned to focus on just shooting.

-The schedule is very tight, but we love what little we have seen and know. I met the bossa nova, for example.

In the interview, the director also took criticism for the star Sylvester Stallone, who shot scenes of The Expendables in Brazil in 2009. The star spoke ill of the city.

- Forget Stallone. We love the city and not get out of here I’m speaking ill of Rio open invitation to attend the 2011 Rio Film Festival and surely will be here.

Rio Films said the film crew will be ten days in Rio de Janeiro – they arrived on Friday (5) – but that will only be five days of filming. The remaining days will be to shift production and equipment.

I hope the translation was accurate.  The only thing I couldn’t figure out is the ‘new boss’.  Is this Stephenie Meyer?     Bossa Nova Dance!  Not new boss!  LOL! 

Has this been a good day or what with all the Breaking Dawn filming photos of Rob & Kristen???  AHHH!

[Source: R7 via FoForks] One more article of the press conference after the break!

Here’se another article of the press conference  from G1 via Twilight Brazil!

“We feel safe here. The writer thought of the river as a place to pass the story, and we are pleased to be here, “said Wyck Godfrey, producer of the film.

The final installment of Stephanie Meyer has scenes that take place in the country, hence the desire to film in the state of Rio However, a shooting that happened in August in the capital shuddered negotiations. At the time, the foreign producer claimed lack of assurance that the recordings took place in the Rio

“It’s very easy and funny to be in Rio We had all the necessary incentives. We’ve been waiting so long, “said the film’s director, Bill Condom.

Actress Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson arrived in Rio on the morning of Friday (5) for the filming of “Sunrise.” On Sunday (7), the actors filmed in Lapa. Some residents came to complain about the recordings. But according to producer Sergio Sa Leitao, Rio Films, the production was not aware of complaints.

“People who were involved in the filming took no notice of any problem in Lapa. All residents and merchants were warned in advance. What happened is that some residents have forgotten that they needed proof of residence to enter the street that was closed to traffic, “he said.

According to the film’s production, filming in Lapa ended at around 7am on Monday (8). Also on Monday, the actors head to Paraty, Rio de Janeiro State in the South, where they remain until next Friday (12) to finish the filming of the movie in Rio

“We want the river to become consolidated as a pole of international productions. And this is already happening. The city is the most popular for film productions, “said Sergio Leitao.

  • Debbliss a.k.a. TEAM SLADE

    I think when they say “the new boss” they maight be talking about the new president, who was elected last weekend and it’s the first woman to be president in Brazil. I don’t think Stephenie can be “the new boss”… she has ALWAYS been THE boss!

    *insert SNL’s song Like a Boss*

  • LegHitchThis

    I could just kiss him right now. Lol
    We have that super cute scene of E&B walking through some outside samba party and Bella’s looking good, Edward’s looking good, and then they share that kiss, right in the center of the commotion! Like they were in their own personal bubble, like.. no one else existed but them.
    It was beautiful. I can’t wait to see it on screen.
