'Breaking Dawn' may not film in Rio, following violent shoot-out

Plans to shoot The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn in Rio De Janeiro may be scrapped following a gang hostage situation that turned bloody at Rio’s Intercontinental Hotel on Sunday. (Drug gang members took 35 people hostage before participating in a gun battle with police that left one dead and six injured.) AFP reports that while cast and crew are fearful about filming in the area, officials in Rio are attempting to convince them to continue production. Rio is expected to profit up to $1 million if Breaking Dawn shoots in the Brazilian city.

    nonsense! It has nothing to fear, because soon, the city of Rio will give them every protection. Who needs to worry about violence are the residents there, because staying in the background. Moreover, violence is everywhere, and
    United States is not all that wonder where the target of terrorism.
