Michael Sheen preparing for 'epic' 'Breaking Dawn' scenes

michael-sheenImage Credit: Kimberley French Besides this sanctioned feathery photo tease (and a lot of tantalizing paparazzi snaps), news from the hotly anticipated The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 has been scarce. So you can imagine how excited EW was to catch up with Michael Sheen (otherwise known as Aro Volturi for all you Twi-hards) on Tron: Legacy‘s blue carpet in Hollywood Saturday night. Sheen says he’ll be heading to Louisiana to begin filming his scenes. “We will be jumping into the the bigger epic scenes when I get back,” Sheen says, adding that he’s excited to work with director Bill Condon for this fourth installment of the series, which will be broken into two films. “Everyone always says wonderful things about Bill. I can see why now. He’s a really terrific guy. Everyone’s really happy and excited about it.”

But we’re hoping Sheen brings his ID — Breaking Dawn, which has already ventured out of Forks territory to shoot in Brazil, has intense security in place at their Baton Rouge studio facility where production is underway. Raleigh Studios implemented a 600 percent increase in security in addition to personal bodyguards hired by the the stars and production. Plus, trespassers beware! According to Louisiana State criminal statute 1462.4, any trespassers will be charged with a felony and subject to prison and a fine up to $1,000.

    Okay, that was a non-story. I got excited about reading a Michael Sheen interview, but there isn’t one.

    • Erin

      Michael Sheen is the only good actor in any of the Twilight films.

      • Di

        and Dakota Fanning.

      How about the unintentionally hilarious “Additional reporting by Nicholas White” credit…

      …that’s right! It took two intrepid reporters to break this non-story!

  • Mia

    What a disapointment, EW. I was hoping for a Michael Sheen interview, too.

  • Kalie

    That was the “Breaking Dawn” scoop? Big deal.

  • Laura

    “Epic Breaking Dawn scenes”…you mean the ones where everyone talks at each other for a good long time and nothing happens? I would not classify those as epic…more like a snore.

    • Chloe

      That’s exactly what I said. They talk at each other and stare intensely…and nothing happens! Yes, that’s very “epic”.

    • Nan

      Not to ruin anything, but there are some spoilers out there regarding the BD script–it sounds like it may diverge from the non-eventfulness of the book.

      • Izzie’s Mom

        Do tell…where?

  • Abc

    Also, Volturi isn’t a last name.

    • B

      Thank you. You’d think with EW’s obsession with Twilight…

      • Abc

        Exactly. And the same goes for the Denalis. It’s like saying Edward’s last name should be Olympic.

    • Karate Pants

      Ha! Seriously…this whole article is a mess.

      • Abc

        I mean, if you’re going to write an article, especially one as short as this one, at least get your facts right.

  • rewolfe

    Agreed this is very disappointing

  • Margie

    Very cool! Can’t wait until next year for part one.

  • alysabethinaustin
