Breaking Dawn Sparks Riots in Rio - Geez!


Riots have occurred in Rio de Janeiro over the shooting of the next Twilight film.

The popular vampire movie franchise, which is adapted from the novels of Stephenie Meyer, will conclude in two instalments; Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and Part 2.

Shooting for the first instalment has been taking place in the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro, although according to reports local residents are fed up with the disruption and have decided to protest.

Scenes for the movie starring Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are being filmed in the central Lapa district. It has been reported demonstrators set the crew's portable toilet alight because access to their homes is being restricted.

In August a shoot-out between criminals and police occurred in the hotel where crew were staying in the area, leading to tougher security precautions.

It has been suggested the film being shot in Rio will boost the city's economy by around $1 million.
