Filming of the latest Twilight movie may have to be put on hold over fears the location is unsafe.
What? Stop the presses. Are you kidding?
The movies stars, including Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Ashley Greene and Taylor Lautner, were due to begin shooting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn in Brazil within the next few weeks.
Apparently the Twilight GODS had other plans for our beloved stars and films. Several media sources have reported that violence has flared in the city of Rio De Janeiro. The violence has resulted in the start date to be questioned. As reported, on Saturday, 35 people were taken hostage by a drug gang at the luxury InterContinental Hotel. The group was on the run from police, and the incident resulted in a three-hour siege, ten arrests, one death and four injured police officers.
With that in mind, the Brazilian Police have reportedly encouraged the production company, Summit Entertainment, to alter their schedule. The firm has not directly commented on the claims, with a spokesman only telling RadarOnline: "The possibility of filming portions of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 in Brazil has always been under consideration and we are continuing to scout locations within the country."
Reportadly the agency responsible for promoting movie shooting in Brazil is said to be urging Summit Entertainment to go ahead with their schedule. Personally, I find that selfish and disturbing. Filming the scenes in Rio De Janeiro was set to boost the local economy by around $1 million, according to reports.
Think about it fans. The police have warned Summit to change their shooting schedule, yet the agency responsible for promoting the movie is requesting that Summit go along with the original schedule. Are you crazy? Are ya'll that self-absorbed that you do not care about the safety of not only our beloved Twilight stars, but the crew and staff that work on the film. Is the damn economy in that desperate need of a economical boost of a measly $1 million dollars.
Don't fear my friends. I have a strong suspicion that Summit will put not only the stars safety first, but the staff and crew's safety first as well. As much as Summit is dedicated to get these movies filmed, they are way more dedicated to all of the stars, cast and crew involved in the films. I have NO doubt that they would do whatever possible eo ensure everyone's safety, even if it meant changing locations or postponing filming.
As far as the selfish jerks in Brazil that are ONLY concerned with money, screw you and may karma bite you in your arse.
