Rob, Kristen & Taylor to promote "Breaking Dawn" in Brazil?

Sandy Adamil, director of Paris Filmes (brazilian distributor), talked to O Globo about a 'Breaking Dawn' junket in Rio with Rob, Kristen & Taylor. President of RioFilme Sérgio Sá Leitão, confirmed on his twitter that there will be a premiere in the city, but there aren't news on which actors are going to attend.

*Rough translation*
After "Transformers", the next confirmed junkets in Rio are "Mr. Popper," the Fox comedy that will bring Jim Carrey to Rio later this month at a date to be confirmed, "The Twilight: Dawn - Part 1 ", from the successful vampire series, distributed in Brazil by Paris Filmes and scheduled for the second semester, and the animated "Puss in Boots," from Paramount, whose voice actors, Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek, will come in November. 
All of this generates a high cost to distributors. The market speculates that for the Fast & Furious 5" junket, Universal spent close to $5 million. As for the "Breaking Dawn", Paris will probably spend up to $ 1.5 million to bring to Rio the trio of actors Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. 
- We had a release for the "Twilight" series in 2009, in Sao Paulo with "New Moon". Then we were lucky that the author of the books, Stephenie Meyer, wrote part of "Breaking Dawn" taking place in Rio, which brought them here last year to shoot scenes of the movie. This helped on the agreement for the realization of the junket - says Sandy Adamil, director of Paris. - You can't have guaranteed return of the investment at the box office, but marketing. And certainly helps to bring the international film market to Rio.
