BATON ROUGE (AP) — Part of the next two ‘‘Twilight’’ movies about supernatural teen romance will be filmed in Baton Rouge.

The Advocate and The Advertiser of Lafayette both reported on their Web sites Friday that Summit Entertainment LLC confirmed that it will produce the two parts of ‘‘Breaking Dawn’’ in Baton Rouge and Vancouver, British Columbia.

Spokesman Hans-Dieter Kopal told The Advocate that the studio hasn’t made any other decisions — including the starting date, how much will be shot in each city, and whether interior or exterior shots will predominate in either.

Summit hasn’t indicated what the production budget will be, but the company has said it expects to use more complex effects.

Filming of the ‘‘Breaking Dawn’’ movies will take one year and the release date for the first of the two films will be Nov. 18, 2011.
