'Breaking Dawn' Cast Gets Stranded on Remote Island

Director Bill Condon recounts the "incredible" experience that interrupted production on the highly anticipated "Twilight" sequels.

It wasn't vampires or werewolves that recently terrorized the set of the two-part Breaking Dawn, the latest and last films in the Twilight franchise, but something altogether more mysterious and powerful -- Mother Nature.

Production on the film was interrupted when the cast was stranded on a remote island after wrapping a big honeymoon scene off the coast of Brazil, director Bill Condon told the Los Angeles Times.

"It was incredible. We got caught in the middle of this huge rainstorm -- I'll remember it forever," he said. "Eighty people sleeping on the floor of the set. We couldn't leave."

The cast and crew eventually made it off the island to continue more location shooting in New Orleans and Vancouver, Canada, for the two films, which are due in theaters Nov. 18, 2011, and Nov. 16, 2012.
