Director Bill Condon announced today via Facebook that the highly anticipated sequel to the Twilight finale, Breaking Dawn – Part 2, will go through a series of reshoots. The director said in the post that he, Kristen Stewart, and Robert Pattinson will return to Vancouver, British Columbia to film a few additional shots.
These shots will not include any dialogue; they will just be “some technical work with some of our cast and stunt actors.” Despite the reshoots, the film is still scheduled to be finished in time for its November 16 release date, so fans have nothing to worry about.
Check out Condon’s full post below.
Greetings from Los Angeles, where we’re hard at work on BREAKING DAWN, PART TWO. It’s truly crazy to think that it’s been a year since we wrapped production in Vancouver, since for those of us in the editing room the work has never stopped.
A film is a lot like a puzzle, with each piece – each shot, no matter how brief – needing to fit exactly with the ones around it. Our Part Two puzzle is finally coming into full view, and in a few weeks we’ll be heading back north to pick up some additional shots – the last tiny missing pieces. We’re not shooting any new scenes or dialogue, just some technical work with some of our cast and stunt actors.
I am really looking forward to being back on set with some of the friends I’ve made on my Twilight journey, like the great Guillermo Navarro, our cinematographer, and his crew. And yes, Rob and Kristen will be there too, to pop in those gold contacts one last time…
I’m excited to report that before too long we’ll have another trailer for you to decode. And wait until you see the first posters — they’re unlike any “Twilight” images you’ve seen before. And then November 16th will be upon us and the final film will be yours!
Until then, have a very happy spring, and I’ll check back in with you soon.”
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 will hit theaters nationwide on November 16.
