Nikki Reed Says ‘Breaking Dawn’ Begins Filming in Two Weeks

Good news for Twi-hards: Nikki Reed says she’s about to head down south, and that the reels will start rolling on the much-anticipated movie before October comes to a close.

“I’m headed out [to New Orleans] in just over a week,” the Twilight cutie told HollywoodLife.

While Twilight and Eclipse were both filmed in Vancouver, initial filming of Breaking Dawn will take place in New Orleans.

The 22-year-old actress says that she plans on taking some classes at a local college: “I’ve signed up for five courses, but two were unavailable.” The Thirteen writer will take classes in language, English and psychology.

Meanwhile, Nikki’s co-star Peter Facinelli recently tweeted about the awesome Breaking Dawn scripts. “Just read the Breaking Dawn scripts,” he tweeted, “I must say…AWESOME! Very excited :)”

Not only are the scripts awesome, but the newest films will include a new cast of Twilight newbies. Catch up on all the new faces before filming begins!
