Hot Movie Productions Filming in Louisiana including Twilight?

This summer another Battle will film in Louisiana but not Battle Los Angeles, this time just Battleship which is in pre-production in Baton Rouge. Also on the horizon for Baton Rouge is Big Valley from the TV show of the same name. Kane and Lynch with Bruce Willis and Jamie Fox, a adaptation from video game to movie is looking to film in Louisiana this summer also. The biggest rumor and now possibly the biggest score for Louisiana this year might be Twilight.

The Advertiser opines that Louisiana as a filming location for Breaking Dawn would be good for both its economy and growing experience as a chosen set.

If the production is indeed moved to Louisiana, it would be one of the biggest coups for the state since it launched several tax incentives in 2002 intended to draw film and television projects to the area. Havens pointed out that Green Lantern and Battleship, both of which are expected to be major summer hits, are either filming or in pre-production in Louisiana. also weighed in on the subject with a bit of interesting information:

The second, more telling, development comes in the form of incorporation papers filed last week with the Louisiana Secretary of State's office by an agent for Summit and establishing a new corporate entity called "TSBD LOUISIANA, L.L.C." -- which would seem to stand for "Twilight: Saga Breaking Dawn."

Another company looking to film in Louisiana is Steven Spielberg's Terra Nova TV show which would come out in 2012 but is just in early development. Drive Angry just wrapped in Shreveport.

Looking forward to Summit coming to Louisiana. I do not live in the state of Louisiana, but have visited it several times. I am extremely excited to see TSBD filmed in this state. What a good choice.
