It looks like the "Twilight" gang is trading the Great White North for The Big Easy.

"Twilight" alum Nikki Reed broke the news to HollywoodLife, revealing that the entire cast and crew will be heading for New Orleans in less than two weeks to begin production on "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn."

This is a dramatic change of setting for the production, as the previous films have been shot almost exclusively in Vancouver.

Reed will, of course, be reprising her role as Rosalie, and she hopes audiences will get to see a more "sympathetic" side to her vampire character in the final installment of the series.

"Breaking Dawn" will be divided into two parts, with Part I coming to theaters on Nov. 18, 2011.  The film is directed by Bill Condon.
