'Twilight' filming begins amid heightened security
BATON ROUGE – Filming started today for the latest movie in the “Twilight” series at the Celtic Media Center in Baton Rouge.
According to the entertainment magazine Scene Louisiana, security on the studio grounds has been increased to accommodate the high-profile film and its stars, including personal bodyguards for Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
The studio has also increased its full- and part-time security staff to 48 guards, and plans to add more every week. In an interview with Scene, chief of security Winston Achee said six people have already been caught trespassing on the grounds, which is a felony in the state of Louisiana.
Part one of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn is scheduled to be released Nov. 18, 2011.
