Exclusive statement from Summit: ‘Due to the tsunami advisory, filming of The ‘Twilight’ Saga: ‘Breaking Dawn’ has been delayed. All cast and crew were evacuated to base camp. Everyone is safe and sound.’
The Breaking Dawn production starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart is in danger. In the aftermath of the 8.9 earthquake and a 23-foot tsunami that slammed Japan’s northeastern coastline, warnings have been issued up the West Coast of North America, including Vancouver Island! And the cast and crew have been evacuated from Tofino!
“Taylor Lautner and the wolf pack are the only stars that were evacuated,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. Rob and Kristen are in Vancouver, which has not been evacuated, adds the source.
“The cast is fine,” confirms another source. They just had to take a two-hour ferry ride to get off of Vancouver Island.
“The potentially affected areas include B.C.’s north coast, Haida Gwaii, Bella Bella and the outer west coast of Vancouver Island, including Cape Scott running to Port Renfrew,” reports CBC News.
“The east coast of Vancouver Island is not at threat, and neither is Victoria or Vancouver,” said Kelli Kryzanowski of Emergency Management British Columbia in Victoria.
According to TheStar.com, the advisory warns that the tsunami “could impact marinas and other coastal infrastructure or create strong currents.”
“While we may not see high waves, we always have to be prepared for the possibility that something like could happen,” says Emergency Management British Columbia communications manager Glen Plummer.
