Breaking Dawn 3-D
Gossip Cop has busted the rumors floating around online that Breaking Dawn was going to be filmed in 3D -
A rep for Summit tells Gossip Cop, “Neither film is being shot in 3D,” and calls the rumors “fabricated.”
And a source informs Gossip Cop that while 3D effects can be added during post-production (as they have with some recent releases), right now it is too premature to say whether either part of Breaking Dawn will be converted.
Use the money for better special effects AND believable WIGS!!! For the love of all things holy PLEASE get Jasper’s wig right finally .. PLEASE!
Do I dare ask what things ya’ll wanted to see in 3D?!
[Thanks, McNutters, and 30yearoldtwifan!]

Producer of the Twilight films, Wyck Godfrey has a huge job on his hands:Breaking Dawn. If you thought reading and or understanding the largest book of the saga was difficult, can you imagine being involved in making a movie for a story of this caliber? Whether its sex scenes, Isle Esme, or the 3-D debate Wyck assures us that they are listening to us the fans. Here’s what the producer had to say. Beware, spoiler alert!
Twilight Saga producer Wyck Godfrey has revealed how the filmmakers are considering handling Breaking Dawn‘s graphic birth scene, and why 3-D is still an option for the final installment of the franchise.
My wife’s an OB-GYN so we should bring her on set to make sure that if Edward is going to do an oral Cesarean, he really needs to make the proper incision with his teeth.” Then, he shared the anti-gore rational that, I have to admit, makes perfect sense:“I think the one thing that we’ve done that we’ve really done in all the films is keep them very subjective and keep them from Bella’s point of view. So the conversations we’ve had with Bill, is that we’ll try to do something similar here; you’re with Bella’s perspective and her point of view of what’s taking place in the rush around her, as she’s in intense pain. Not so focused, objectively, on her body and his body and that. So I think it’ll be something like that, in terms of trying to make the audience experience and feel the confusion, almost, of what’s happening to her.”
When rumors first broke in February that producers were considering going 3-D for Breaking Dawn, 67 percent of readers responding to a PopWatch poll didn’t like the idea. But Godfrey makes a reasonable case for that as well:
“We have considered it, and everything’s being discussed, but I know that part of a way to differentiate the two movies would be to have one be in 2-D, and when she becomes a vampire we move into 3-D. But we haven’t really gotten far enough to decide what we’re going to do. I’m of two minds of it, frankly, and I think everyone is; I don’t want to chase the format if it’s not organic and appropriate. If we think it is, we will.”
I personally don’t think 3-D is wise. But that’s why I’m not in the movie business. Maybe it will come out fantastic, but I’ll pass on a 3-D Breaking Dawn. Check out the full story here.
It’s still so early. Who knows what the Twi-Gods will decide. I’m just greatful this film is being made…I’ll take whatever I can get. What are your thoughts?

“Breaking Dawn” will be filmed in both Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Vancouver, Canada, Summit Entertainment announced on Friday (July 9). Split into two separate films but being shot simultaneously, the production will ramp up in the fall and continue over the next year. No exact start date for filming was given.
The first film will be released on November 18, 2011. No official release date for the second part has been set, but as a Summit exec told MTV News this week, the studio is exploring multiple dates in 2012, both in the summer and later that year.
Many other questions remain about “Breaking Dawn,” the most intriguing of which is the 3-D question: Will it either be shot using 3-D cameras or converted to 3-D during post-production? Summit tells MTV News that such discussions are currently under way, but that no decision has yet been made. Much of the cast is onboard with the 3-D idea, including Kristen Stewart.
“I’m probably speaking out of line or whatever, but I think it would be awesome,” she told MTV News. “Nobody knows what it’s like to look through the eyes of a vampire. What if [Bella] opens her eyes to this extraordinary world? It could be cool.”
Bill Condon (“Dreamgirls”) will direct both parts of “Breaking Dawn,” taking over for “Eclipse” director David Slade. Pattinson and the rest of the cast wrapped production on “Eclipse” at the end of October 2009, which means that when the stars show up on-set for “Breaking Dawn,” about a year will have passed since they slipped into their respective roles as vampires and werewolves.
Exciting! Happy for our Louisiana and Vancouver readers. Woo hoo! I could live without the 3D birth scene. However, 3D honeymoon scene…..hmmmm. LOL!
November 18, 2011!! That is so far away!

Producer Wyck Godfrey Confirms Breaking Dawn Filming in Louisiana and Vancouver, Thinking About Breaking Dawn in 3-D
Collider has a new interview with Twilight Saga producer Wyck Godfrey, where he reveals they will definitely be shooting part of the movie in Louisiana alongside the previous Vancouver set locations. He says the reason for this is partially financially motivated with tax credits along with a strong crew base in the area, and from the interview it sounds like there may be a substantial portion filmed in Louisiana.
Godfrey also addresses the question of whether Breaking Dawn will be shot in 3-D, and he says it is under serious consideration. He notes they talked about it for Eclipse, but decided early on not to go that route.He also notes that he doesn’t want to do a post-production conversion like Clash of the Titans if it’s done in 3D, but wants to film it with the proper equipment in “real” 3-D as was done with Avatar and only if director Bill Condon feels it suits the material.

Taylor Lautner on Breaking Dawn Movie Two Film Split, Director Bill Condon, Renesmee, and 3-D Version
Taylor Lautner, who plays Jacob Black in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, gives his thoughts on the split of Breaking Dawn into two films in a new interview. Overall, he’s thrilled by the decision–
“I definitely think it was the right thing to do, for the movie and for the book, It’s hard enough to condense 500 pages into a script, but to condense 800 and everything that’s going on in ‘Breaking Dawn,’ it would have been impossible.”
Taylor also has a part of the new films he’s nervous about–but also really excited for–
“It’s the part I’m most looking forward to and the part I’m most nervous about: Renesmee, the baby,” he said, referring to the vampire baby spawned by Edward and Bella. Upon Renesmee’s birth, Jacob finds himself inexplicably drawn to the baby, effectively ending his feud with Edward over Bella’s heart. “That should be very interesting to film. But I’m looking forward to it! I’ve got the direction of Bill Condon, so I’ll be fine.”
Taylor Lautner also gives his view on new director Bill Condon and the idea that the last two films in the Twilight Saga could be shot in 3D:
“I met him briefly, very quickly, but not about ‘Breaking Dawn.’ He seems like a very nice guy,” the actor said. “Obviously, he’s ridiculously talented, so I’m excited that I’m getting to work with him twice.” “Usually, 3-D is best when it takes you into another world,” he explained. “I could see it going both ways. As long as we have the story line down and as long as we bring what was written on the pages in the book to life, then we’ll be fine no matter what we do.”
