Breaking Dawn Final Confrontation in Louisiana?

The Daily Blam, which I have never heard of, apparently got the inside scoop on scenes being shot in Louisiana.

Recently, Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the highly lucrative film series The Twilight Saga, announced that filming for the franchise's final chapter, Breaking Dawn, will partially take place in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. A source within the Louisiana Film Commission has disclosed to me that members of the Breaking Dawn production crew have already scouted out the location they are planning to use for the film; which the studio is releasing in two parts.

The scene will be the final confrontation between the Cullen clan, who are joined by the Quileute wolf pack and their friends, and the Volturi. The scene, most of which is taken directly from the novel, has been extended to include several physical fights. It is expected that many Twilight fans will be flocking to Louisiana when the studio begins filming in the area; which is why the exact area the production team has decided on is being kept tightly under wrap.

I really thought that scene would be done here in Vancouver. I actually expected most of Louisiana's scenes to be in studio almost exclusively with the exception of maybe Alice searching for other baby half vampires...

I also expected that most outdoor stuff, including the scene mentioned here would be filmed in Vancouver.

Maybe I am wrong.

Then again, maybe this article is wrong.

Time will tell but it seems odd to me that a source with Louisiana Film Commission would talk to a The Daily Blam (though maybe it is a friend of the author that works for the film commission?) and reveal this information... who knows!

I have no information on Vancouver filming yet so as fans we just have to roll with the punches, this is certainly not the first and most definately not the last of random articles that will appear... only time will tell what's true and what's not...

I'm going to go with "wrong." Filming in Baton Rouge from Nov. 1 until March 15, according to Production Weekly, for just one scene? Doesn't make sense.
