 The last installment of the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn is currently being shot in Brazil, but some residents are not happy to see their hometown being turned into a movie set and took actions into their own hands on Sunday.
 
Locals set fire to a porta-potty used by the film crew before taking to the streets to express their fury at the restricted access to their homes due to filming.
 
This is not the first incident to slow down and endanger the production, during the last days of August a hostage situation in a hotel in the city of Sao Conrado made producers reconsider locations; the local government had to take extra security measures to keep Summit Entertainment interested in completing the movie in Rio, a multimillion dollar operation.
