Next ‘Twilight’ installments on track

Fourth and fifth of vamp series begin shooting this fall

Summit Entertainment will begin shooting the fourth and fifth “Twilight” films this fall in Vancouver and in Baton Rouge, La., with production taking place over the next year.

Summit made the announcement Friday. It’s the first time that Louisiana’s been used as a location during the series. The Baton Rouge shooting is expected to take place first and cover interior shots.

Studio announced three weeks ago its decision to split the final film in two, with the first set to open on Nov. 18, 2011. Summit still hasn’t disclosed the release date of the final film.

Bill Condon is directing “Breaking Dawn,” the final tome in author Stephenie Meyer’s four-book vampire series. The book centers on the mortal Bella and the vampire Edward being married and Bella givings birth to a half-vampire-half-human daughter, Renesmee.

Catherine Hardwicke helmed the first pic while Chris Weitz directed the second, “New Moon.” David Slade was behind the camera for the third, “Eclipse,” which opened June 30. The franchise has grossed more $1.4 billion in worldwide box office.

Wyck Godfrey, Karen Rosenfelt and Meyer are producing. Scribe Melissa Rosenberg has adapted each installment and is currently working on the fourth.
