There is no specific information as to exactly what will be filmed in which location. There is speculation that since Jacob’s House, the Quileute beach, and the meadow physically exist in the Vancouver area that those locations would likely be used again. Interiors could obviously be built in either location. Bella’s house is a modular, transportable unit. It too could be in either location. Scene on Isle Esme and in the hunt for Cullen supporters in the confrontation could lend themselves nicely to Louisiana geography.
Mandy's Mind - Well I have been suggesting Vancouver for filming this all along but I was also first to say no way to Louisiana so for that I will eat my words and follow up with a "told you so" - which brings me back to about even on the right/wrong scale doesn't it?
Regardless I am excited to have some Vancouver filming and to be honest, certainly ok with sharing the excitement (and drama) with Louisiana. I have spent a lot of time down there especially in Hammond and New Orleans, so I am familiar with the area and the people.
I'd love to see a charity event down there featuring all the local Vampires ;)
