The Drama that is Breaking Dawn
After Eclipse, everyone's waiting if Breaking Dawn will get the green light. Thus, rumours are going about that it is or is it not, and whether it will be one or two movies.
The LA Times mentioned that BD was already greenlit!
Wyck Godfrey, the producer of all the films in the "Twilight" saga, admits that the creative team still doesn't know how they'll handle the character in the "Breaking Dawn" movie, but said that the plan is absolutely for the production to go forward -- as either one or two installments -- with an eye toward beginning to shoot in Vancouver this fall. All three stars are signed for "Breaking Dawn," he said, meaning that Stewart and Pattinson will be dealing with the joys and woes of interspecies parenting and newly minted heartthrob Taylor Lautner will return as often-shirtless shape-shifter Jacob Black.
At the moment, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, who's penned all the "Twilight" movies, is working on the "Breaking Dawn" script(s). "It's a work in process," Godfrey said in an interview Friday. "The issue [of whether there will be one or two movies] is not going to be resolved until we get the full treatment and see whether it's organic. If it's not organic, I don't think it will be done, and if it is, it will be. It really has to do with how much level of detail from the books there is, with all of these new vampires that appear in 'Breaking Dawn,' the whole section about Jacob... It's a very long single movie if it does become a single movie."
However, Stephenie Meyer (isn't she awesome? :D ) cleared up all rumours.
Just a quick note on the subject of the Breaking Dawn film: there is no drama over whether the book should be one movie or two. My personal feeling is that it would be very difficult to cram the whole story into one movie (as I've said in many interviews previous to this), but if a great way of doing that surfaces, I'm all for it. Two or one, whichever way fits the story best is fine by me, and everyone I've spoken with at Summit seems to feel the same way. We're all excited to move forward on this, and we are slowly and surely getting there. I know people are anxious for news, and so sometimes gossip gets fabricated to stir things up, but there's no basis to this particular story.
Well, it's still unclear if it is on or off for now, but Twilight star Christian Serratos warned the producers about a scene involving... feathers ;)
“The books are sassy, and if [producers] completely watered down the book and didn’t show any of the [sex scenes], fans would be pissed off,” Christian Serratos, who plays Bella Swan’s bestie Angela Weber in the Twilight Saga films, told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at Think PR’s pre-Golden Globe gifting suite.
Adds the 19-year-old actress, “I don’t think there’s any reason why they’d want to exclude that stuff. That’s what makes Twilight so interesting – it’s not cookie cutter, it’s not safe, it’s not Disney. It’s this really cool, edgy love story. It’s not supposed to be your typical love story, [fans] want that sassiness. Even [author Stephenie Meyer] has said this: Breaking Dawn is the book that everyone is waiting for.”
Woo hoo! Keeps those fingers crossed...
