Nikki Reed Reveals Edward & Bella's Honeywoom Will Be Filmed in South America


Things are about to get hot for this real-life couple in more ways than one…co-star Nikki Reed confirms they’re going to shoot their Breaking Dawn honeymoon scene in South America!

How’s this for muy caliente?  There’s been speculation that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson would do ‘the deed’ for the first time everywhere from Vancouver to Louisiana to Brazil — and their Twilight co-star, Nikki Reed, has confirmed the exact location of said deflowering!
“They are filming a few days [in South America], but I’m not there,” the 22-year-old actress confirmed to exclusively at the LA premiere of her new film, Last Day of Summer, Sept. 22. “It’s Bella and Edward’s honeymoon.”
It appears that producers are keeping the big screen version of Breaking Dawn pretty faithful to Stephenie Meyer’s book: the fictional honeymoon spot is an island called “Isle Esme”, just off the coast of Brazil.
We hope Bella and Edward’s REAL honeymoon is just as epic as it is in the book, as well. If it IS, you’re going to see a lot of nudity, skinny-dipping and R-Patz biting the hell out of a pillow because he can’t control himself. How’s that for hot?

'New Moon' Gets A Premiere Date On Showtime

Showtime resets 'Californication,' 'Episodes' premieres and schedules 'Twilight Saga: New Moon'

Showtime has decided to make it full night of original Sunday programming starting this January.
The premium cable network announced on Wednesday (Sept. 22) that the Golden Globe-winning "Californication" and Matt LeBlanc's small screen return in "Episodes" will now air on Sundays in the 9 p.m. hour, starting on January 9.
The two comedies will now be paired with "Shameless," the network's William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum-fronted spin on the British format, which will air in the 10 p.m. hour.
Showtime had previously set "Episodes" and "Californication" to premiere in the 10 p.m. hour on Monday, January 10, before deciding on a jam-packed Sunday of originals. A twisted family dramedy, "Shameless" was always scheduled for the 10 p.m. hour on Sundays.
In other Showtime scheduling news, "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" will have its cable television premiere on Saturday, January 8. The second "Twilight" film took in nearly $710 million at the worldwide box office after its 2009 release. 


'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' to be Shot in 2-D, Not 3-D

One of the worst rumors to swirl around 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' was that Summit Entertainment was seriously considering making the film 3-D. For the haters, it would mean an extra dimension of painful cinema, while the Twi-hards could enjoy a 3-D extravaganza of romance, but not a whole lot of action to warrant an immersive experience. Star Kristen Stewart wasn't so sure about the whole idea, pondering that "maybe certain scenes" could be, while others (*cough* Renesmee's arrival *cough*) should not.

Well now there's news to at least partially ease your fears, or dash your lusty hopes: Summit has told Cinematical that: "True, neither film is being shot in 3-D." But let us remember, there are two ways to throw viewers into an added dimension. You can plan for it and shoot it that way, or you can run it through that fancy conversion process. 

If you note what Summit said, it's not that the film won't be released in 3-D, but that it won't be "shot" in 3-D. We've learned that, as of now, Summit has not decided whether they will convert the film after the fact. There are a lot of factors that come into play which the studio needs to consider, like will it bring in more money and be worth the cost of conversion? Will it add or take away from the experience? And most importantly -- how will it affect how director Bill Condon ('Dreamgirls') tackles some of the film's racier elements? 

(Spoiler alert: don't read on if you haven't read the book and have somehow remained spoiler-free thus far.)

Yes, it might be neat to see a vampiric Bella jumping over rivers, feeding on animal predators, and learning how to fight. But outside of that, the themes range from poor for 3-D -- weddings, sex we'll never see, a werewolf's inner monologue, and lots of chatter -- to some material that would be insanely poor for 3-D -- namely Renesmee's bloody, almost deadly birth of cracking bones and blood. Gore hounds might want to see the moment in all of its horror, but in the real world, that's never going to happen.

Is Summit making the right move? Should it be shot in 3-D or no extra dimension at all? Leave your thoughts in the comments.


Robert Pattinson: The Latest Brit To Make It Big In Hollywood

Thanks to the Twilight Saga Robert Pattinson has staked his claim on the hearts of millions as Edward Cullen. And that fame has already earned him a fortune...With Twilight mania sweeping the globe it is perhaps unsurprising that vampire Robert Pattinson, aka Edward Cullen, found his way on to the Sunday Times Young Millionaires List this year.

His new entry on the list places him at 13th, above Charlotte Church and Cheryl Cole but below Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame. And at the tender age of just 24.

For the uninitiated, the Twilight Saga is a series of romantic fantasy films, which built up a cult following, based on novels by the American author Stephenie Meyer. Robert Pattinson, with a notable similarity to Robert Smith of the Cure, is its star. He is just the latest Brit to make it big in Hollywood.

His new found fame and fortune are still seemingly strange to him though, since he struggled diligently in acting for years. He started acting in amateur plays at the age of 15 with the Barnes Theatre Company.
His first real break came along with a supporting role in the television film Curse of the Ring in 2005. However most of the earnings from his first acting job then went towards paying off his fees for his attendance at the Harrodian School, in Barnes, West London.

But none of it might have happened. He has admitted that at one stage he was ready to give up acting, and spent a year instead trying to break into the music business: he's also a talented musician, playing both guitar and piano.

His next big break came along in the form of the role of Cedric Diggory, a character in the Harry Potter films. However, this temporary character was nothing in comparison to the Twilight persona he would go on to create. Twilight was the defining moment that cemented his place in the hearts and minds of millions of people, as well as making him rich.

When he first took on the role of Edward Cullen he was paid an already hefty $2m (approximately £1.3m) and by the time the mass hysteria of fandom had kicked in, the second instalment saw both him and co-star Kristen Stewart receive around six times their original fee - around £8m each.

According to E! he garnered between £8m and £9.2m for his reprisal of the role in the third installment. He also made Vanity Fair's Top Hollywood Earners of 2009, at position 36, for pulling in earnings of $18m (£12m). However, unlike most other celebrities, even those who haven't rocketed up the rich list, Pattinson appears to have no real yearning for material goods, at least not yet.

He noted that throughout the last three years he has spent much of it staying in hotels and when he's back at home in England he happily stays with his family. He considered buying a house in Hollywood but decided not for the level-headed but pessimistic reason that 'I don't even know if I'll be working next year.'

Far from being out of work, he is inundated with it. Aside from his more independent films in which he is attempting a carve out a different name for himself, the role of Edward Cullen pays well. With the release of Eclipse, the third film in the series, attention has turned to the final installment.

That movie, Breaking Dawn, is set to be split into two films and it is yet to be announced how much he earned from these although it is reported that the cast all wanted raises.

It is perhaps this guarantee of work that inspired him to be a little more decadent with his money and rent an apartment in LA which, apparently, is also furnished with rented furniture.

Not only has he not bought himself a mansion or squandered money on meaningless frivolities, but he drove his old car, a 1989 BMW until it died, literally, in flames. He finally rented an Audi S4 convertible – a car worth a modest (in Hollywood circles) £40,000 and is believed to have bought one since. Not exactly what you might attribute to being the lifestyle of the rich and the famous.

David Slade To Speak About 'Eclipse' At Vancouver International Film Festival

Director David Slade says he wanted more romance and terror for the third movie in Twilight series.

Take away the screaming fans outside the barricades, and the making of the mega-hit vampire romance Eclipse has a lot in common with the harsh indie drama Hard Candy, says the man who directed both movies.

David Slade is returning to Vancouver, where he spent a year working on this summer's blockbuster hit Eclipse, to talk to an audience of new filmmakers at the Vancouver Film and Television Forum about crafting a movie scene.

"It's kind of similar, whether you're working for a big studio or on an independent film. It's never a playground," says the British-born Slade.

The director will talk about the filming of a couple of scenes from each movie Oct. 2 at the industry-themed component of the Vancouver International Film Festival. The forum hosts filmmakers at the Vancouver International Film Centre from Sept. 28 to Oct. 2.

Slade started work on Eclipse when the second Twilight movie, New Moon, was finished but before it had been released.

"This huge, enormous zeitgeist of a thing hadn't quite happened yet," he says, adding that when the tide of screaming fans did build around the film set, he was too busy to pay much attention.

The film's security people would erect fences at exterior locations to keep fans far away, and Slade would be at work in the back of a car for the ride to set each day. "Just getting it done became a thousand questions - swatch cards, costume approvals, storyboards. I would have my head in my notes."

He remembers seeing fans with flowers standing in the rain as cast and crew left work after an all-night shoot in the woods one night. "I've got a lot of respect for those kids - God that's tenacity. I have a lot of time for the subcultures that bring kids together, regardless of subject matter. Often it's just a good solid source for people to bond."

Slade says he saw Eclipse as more of a romance.

"Within the two pulling forces of romance and terror, I wanted to try and sample both," he says. "I don't think they really did it (in the previous Twilight movies) so much. I wanted Rob (Pattinson) to be scary. I wanted him to have a visceral quality, where a flash of his eyes kind of made it look like he could kill."
Slade says he approached Eclipse as a stand-alone film. "There are films that came before, and you inherit cast and crew ... but I really didn't spend any time studying the other movies."

He says he met more than once with each actor individually before starting rehearsals together: 
"background cast, all the Cullen family, the wolves, all those guys - as many as I possibly could in the time that I had."

He got them to talk about what they liked and didn't like about the earlier films, and in subsequent meetings he talked with them about what he wanted.

"You have to take the best of what they've done, acknowledge that it's good, and what's not good, (then) take them to a good place to start work," he says.

Another thing he did was to move video monitors away from the set, so the actors wouldn't worry about what they looked like.

"They concentrated on the moment, that I felt worked," he says. "Particularly people who are doing the same role several times ... they could be (saying) 'Am I doing that look again?'"

Slade talks about scene structure, saying most scenes have the same three-act form as an entire movie, and quotes Plato on the balance between craft and form.

"I'm going to sound like a wanker now for mentioning Plato," says Slade. "For Twilight, we're not talking about the greatest art, but about trying to create something that works, that people respond to."
For 2005's Hard Candy, Slade introduced a young Ellen Page to U.S. indie audiences, as a teen who torments a supposed sexual predator (Patrick Wilson).

Slade says he and producer David Higgins saw some 300 actors before seeing Page's taped audition. They put up their own money to get the actress a plane ticket to L.A., so they could persuade their backers to hire her.

"Ellen was astonishing," he recalls. "Incredibly articulate and smart. She was the main help in us getting Patrick; he saw a solid performance that he was going to work against."

As to what's next for Slade, he says Internet reports of him working with Hugh Jackman on an upcoming Wolverine sequel are premature.

"I can say that I've met with Hugh Jackman and he is a very nice fellow, but you never know with these things," the director says. "There are several projects I'm interested in now, and that's one of them."


Kristen Stewart Interested In Playing The Lead In A New Film, 'Little American'?

- Kristen Stewart is interested in playing the lead in the Peter Craig scripted Little American.  Produced by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, the film is described as a cross between Speed (okay) and Black Dog (huh?) and centers on “a 16-year-old prostitute who inadvertently kills a gang member, and then must go on the run. She hitches a ride with a truck driver who is hauling a lethal toxin. The truck driver and the prostitute bond during the chase.”  Josh Brolin is interested in playing the truck driver.

James Franco Found 'Breaking Dawn''s Sex Scene To Be A 'Letdown After All That Buildup'

What we love about James Franco is that, despite pursuing a Ph.D. at Yale, garnering serious Oscar buzz in "127 Hours" and embodying a Hollywood A-list persona, he's taken time out of his busy schedule to keep up with the trends. That's right, James has both read and watched the "Twilight" books and films, and when MTV News caught up with him at the Toronto International Film Festival where he was promoting "127 Hours," he spent more time talking about the phenomenon than the film's stars typically do.
While he may not be a self-proclaimed Twi-hard after reading the series, James can at least reference Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner on a first name basis (you'd be surprised to find there are celebs out there who can't), and can clearly understand the deeper metaphors of the stories.
"I wouldn't say I enjoy them, but I'm fascinated with them," James said about the books. "I'm interested in the metaphor of the vampire placed in the high school setting and how a relationship with a vampire can stand in for general feelings that people have as teenagers. And the obsession people have with that is also fascinating to me."
James also took some time analyzing the role of the films in the whole "Twilight" craze. "It's really hard to extricate those actors from the reading experience of just the phenomenon of 'Twilight' now," he said. He also gave a shout-out to the self-references of "Eclipse" that we loved so much.
"The movies are almost commenting on themselves," he said. "There will be a scene where the go-to guys, Taylor and Rob, are in the tent, it's almost like a 'Brokeback Mountain' scene, where the two guys are talking in a tent and the girl is asleep, and they're having, like, this romantic moment almost through her, in a way. One of them says, 'Well, I'm hotter than you,' and it's almost like they're winking at the fans, like to the Team Jacob or the Team Edwards."
But he does have one "Twilight" concession to make: He hasn't finished reading "Breaking Dawn." He has heard a bit about the birthing scene ("I kind of know what happens, some very strange birth, right?" he asked rhetorically), but at least his reasoning for calling it quits part way through the book matches our own frustrations when we were reading it the first time!
"I read a part of it. I think I got to the sex scene, but it was so brief, I didn't even know if it was the actual sex scene," he admitted. "It was kind of a letdown after all that buildup."
