In the fourth Twilight book, Breaking Dawn, Bella and Edward honeymoon on an island off Brazil’s coast, which had influenced the filmmakers to shoot in Rio de Janeiro, but the shoot location for this part of the film may be changed due to a local hostage situation.
Here’s what an AFP reporter had to say about it:
"The real-life drama on Saturday of drug gang members taking 35 people hostage in Rio's Intercontinental Hotel as they tried to escape police has proved scarier to the production crew than the fictional vampires and werewolves they deal with.”
Despite the fact that 35 hostages were taken and a female gang member was killed, Rio officials still want Summit Entertainment’s business.
We’re torn. On the one hand, we’d be inclined to say that the Breaking Dawn crew should shoot elsewhere in an effort to keep everyone safe, but on the other hand, we’d hate for Bella and Edward to have anything but the perfect locale for their honeymoon! Decisions…decisions…
Do U think the Breaking Dawn crew should tough it out in Rio or shoot elsewhere?
