Melissa Rosenberg talks Eclipse and screenwriting
Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg comments on Eclipse, and also adapting the book to the movie.
She says that Eclipse will be darker.
To find out how dark Eclipse will be, we'll have to wait until the movie actually comes out. But Twi-screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg says there's absolutely no doubt the third flick in the vampire franchise is taking a darker turn.
And she credits the storyline and director David Slade for that...
"David has a darker sensibility, so it clicks," Rosenberg said. "The story has a slightly darker tone. I mean, it goes into a full-out battle, so it is darker in the nature of what it is. David was the perfect director for it."
But not to worry, Rosenberg said, Eclipse won't be unrecognizable. "They have the continuity of having the same writers and same actors, but the directors put their own stamp on it," she said. "They'll be similar, but very different."
She also says that writing the Twilight series screenplays was the easiest job she ever got.
It (screenwriting) was a very creative experience primarily. So when they got a hold of those “Twilight” properties, because of that previous experience, Erik called me -- and it was basically the easiest job I ever got.
