We understand that Robert Pattinson is a living national treasure, but this is some INTENSE security, Louisiana!
perhaps to the point of excessive security measures are being set up for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn's shoot at Raleigh Studios' Celtic Media Centre in Baton Rouge.
Here's what Celtic's chief of security Winston Achee had to say about it:
“We have increased our number of full-time security personnel from six to twenty-four in the last week. That’s just the beginning of the ramp-up. We’ll be adding two to four more every week.”
Wow. More from Achee:
“So, we’ll have on property at all times a forty-eight man force. We are not taking security on this property lightly."
Trust us, we DON'T think you're taking security lightly.
Here are some other highlights of Achee's hardcore security situation:
-Enhanced vehicle identification requirements
-Unique photo badges to be worn at all times by authorized personnel
-Hiring of veterans of Louisiana police forces and sheriff's departments instead of just security guards
Between Winston Achee's small army and the high profile security that the Twilight crew will be bringing themselves, we're thinking Taylor Lautner's abs and K-Stew are going to be JUST FINE.
…But just in case you're still not convinced, here's why Achee says security for the film
should will go smoothly:
”I used to run security for Elvis. I’m confident.”
Certainly NO arguing with that! We wish you the best of luck with Twilight's security, Winston. We're sure R-Patz appreciates it!
Do U think Twilight needs THAT much security?
