New Moon Filming in Montepulciano, Italy May 25-30 [UPDATED]
New Moon will be filming in Montepulciano, Italy from May 25th till May 30th, if a post on the official Italian Twilight fan site is to be believed. The site is in Italian, but essentially the post says that they were contacted by the Montepulciano tourism board confirming the news in order to organize all the Italian fans that will be swarming the production.
Here's the original post at Twilighters Italia.
Twilight Lexicon now reports that this is just a rumour.
Just want to you to know that the Eagle Picture’s Official Twilight WebSite today indicated that they talked with the Municipality of Montepulciano, which denied the rumor that New Moon would be shot in town during the period from 25th to 30th of May. (They denied the timeframe, not the fact that Montepulciano will host the shooting).
Here’s the text in Italian written by Eagle Pictures:
“Dobbiamo invece darvi una brutta notizia: la Pro Loco di Montepulciano ci ha scritto comunicandoci che l’amministrazione comunale ha smentito i rumour sulle date delle riprese italiane di New Moon nella città: le date 25/30 maggioattualmente non sono certe, né confermate. L’unico organo che potrà dare notizie certe a riguardo sarà il comune di Montepulciano stesso, dal quale ci aspettiamo un comunicato ufficiale quanto prima. Questo non smentisce le riprese, ma solo le date precedentemente segnalate…”
Which translates into:
“We have to give you some bad news: the Pro Loco (tourism office) of Montepulciano wrote us to say that the municipality administration denied the rumours on the dates of the shooting of New Moon in Italy: The dates of 25-30th of May actually are neither certain, nor confirmed. The only official channel enabled to provide sure information regarding this matter will be Montepulciano’s municipality, from which we’ll be expecting an official communication shortly. This does not deny the shooting in Montepulciano, just the dates reported before…”
The Official Eagle Site says that Montepulciano doesn’t refute the fact that is involved with the film but strongly said that doesn’t know nothing about the days and that just the municipality can talk about the movie, not with the Tourism Association.”
