Twilight To Invade True Blood's Territory?!

Sources are speculating that unlike the first three Twilight films, Breaking Dawn won't be shot in the Pacific Northwest, but rather in the bayous of Louisiana.

Sound familiar, Sookie Stackhouse?

A production notice was uncovered by sources when it was filed last week at the Louisiana Secretary of State's office. An agent for Summit Entertainment allegedly established a new corporate entity called "TSBD LOUISIANA, L.L.C.," which could very well stand for Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

Vamps call it Josephine's, the weres call it Club Dead and in True Blood it's known as Lou Pine's Bar

I was most interested in the last trailer photos of Club Dead ...

Lou Pine's =lupines

1.pertaining to or resembling the wolf.
2.related to the wolf.
3.savage; ravenous; predatory.

Here is the description we get from the book:

I caught a glimpse of a street sign reading "Amite" as we pulled up to an awning that stretched over a deserted length of sidewalk in the outskirts of downtown Jackson. The area directly under the awning was lit with a brilliant and cold light. Somehow that length of sidewalk seemed creepily ominous, especially since the rest of the street was dark... "The vamp that owns it calls it Josephine's," he said, just as quietly. "But Weres call it Club Dead." I thought about laughing, but the inner door opened just then. The doorman was a goblin.

Sookie fans like it when Sookie gets to have sex !

True Blood author Charlaine Harris: Readers like it when Sookie gets to have sex
Author Charlaine Harris, 58, writes the Sookie Stackhouse vampire mystery books that have been turned into hit TV series True Blood. The books detail the antics of telepathic waitress Sookie, her vampire boyfriend Bill and their various supernatural pals.

How did you start writing these books?

I wrote conventional mysteries for many years. I’d written two mystery series which had done fairly well but hadn’t got me to where I wanted to be. I had a thinking session and decided to write about a woman who was dating vampires. I hoped a mystery with supernatural elements and romance would appeal to a broader readership than just mystery readers.

Was it a struggle selling it?

That was the hardest part. Writing the book was a joy, selling it was very difficult. It took my agent two years. People didn’t know where to place it – it didn’t quite fit into romance, mystery or science fiction.

Did you think of abandoning the idea?

No, I had a taste of what I wanted to do. The change of scenario was invigorating. With mysteries you have to have a dead body, clues and a denouement, and I found the conventions restrictive.

What do the readers expect from your books?

They want vampires, of course, and don’t mind seeing werewolves and fairies too. The younger readers like it when Sookie gets to have sex but that doesn’t happen in every book.

You wouldn’t know that from the TV show.

No, you wouldn’t. That’s where Alan Ball [True Blood’s producer] and I have a different approach.

What are the other differences between the books and the TV show?

There are extra characters on the show. We had to bring the other characters forward because Sookie can’t be on the screen all the time. Alan’s very talented. I had several offers to adapt the books and feel I went with the right person.
