Stephie speaks on Breaking Dawn rumours...

Ladies, shield your ovaries!

From the finger-tips of Yoda (or the Twilight equivalent):

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.

Just how masochistic of me is it to kinda want two movies? I know it'll take longer - and Hale only knows if the cast can be signed on for another in the franchise - but I think there's too much to get in in too little time.

Plus, ya know, why pass up an extra opportunity to sell Volturi packing tape or Renesmee candles? ... Just sayin' ;)

  1. Chyeah! Breaking Dawn should be made into two seperate movies. The first one should be pre-vamp life. The second should start right when she first opens her eyes as a vampire. Oh how exciting! Lol. xD

  3. Just one movie! We don't need two movies if they get the right scriptwriter and that is NOT Melissa Rosenberg. We don't need all of Jacob's Book shown on screen. We definitely need the Edward and Bella love story to return. NM was disgusting because the E/B reunion scenes were cut and rushed! They were terribly glossed over as if they were just an after thought. I've read the leaked Eclipse script and it's doing the same to E/B. I can't believe Stephenie Meyer is allowing the studio and MR to ruin the franchise!

  4. I think BD should be made in two movies because is the most important book! There's so much happening in there that I rather wait one year to see the second movie than be in the theater for like 2 hours and don't be able to recognize the book at all.

  5. I definitely think it should be made into two movies, it'd be hard to put all that happens into a two hour script and still keep the integrity of the story intact.

    @ Anon: The more reason to make it into two separate movies! It'll be longer. And you know what that means. *WinkWink* Longer love scenes!

  8. I seriously got the chills when I read that! I'm such a dork!

    TWO MOVIES! The more the better! And I totally agree with Irene about when to start part 2.

  9. I'm going to get bitten for this, but I think it should be one. New Moon felt a bit slow (and definitly felt slow to everyone I know that did not read the books). I think they should want to do it in more like 2 1/2 hours though, but I think it could be amazing and wouldn't feel slow since there is some good stuff in there. Like Anonymous said, we don't need a lot of the "Jacob book". Sorry Team Jacob fans (which includes everyone in my family but me. hehe.)! It's more about it translating to screen for me and I just don't think it's as neccessary. Plus the Volturi will have been well established by then, so they don't need to spend a lot of time on establishing them. I know all of us huge fans will see a movie where the major conflict is a pregnancy, but the general public would not be as interested. I will be happy if it is two movies, but that is just my two cents. :-)

  12. We totally need two! She's right - its too much for one film :)

  13. If they can fit all of the Lord of the Rings books into the same number of movies as the books they can do Breaking Dawn. But definately a better screen writter. She totaly screwed up Twilight and New Moon felt very rushed.

  14. Hellooo!? Are you people dumb? Melissa is already writing the script(s).. So why are you still hoping they get someone else for it..?
    They're NOT getting someone else then Melissa..

  16. It really doesn't matter to me if it's one or two...I just want it to be done right. Twilight wasn't that good, and New Moon was so rushed. I liked them because I love the Twilight Saga but people who haven't read them, were lost. So I'm hoping that Eclipse and Breaking Dawn, are done right Pleasssse lol ;)

  17. It would kind of suck as two movies, think about all that actually happens in Breaking Dawn - Bella and Edward get married, bam! She's pregnant then out pops the baby faster than the reader can say "wtf?" and then after that it's just all build up to a total anticlimax.

    If they split it into two movies then we'd just be watching some warped combination of Rosmary's Baby and Juno for the first movie then the second would just be a flood of new characters showing up for a fight that never happens.

    Movies like this need some sort of action and conflict to prevent people (with the exception of the complete mushy romantics) from being bored to tears - those are barely present in the story as a whole, never mind trying to scramble to create two story arcs out of the barely there plot.

    Think about it, the first movie had the James climax, the second had the Volturi, the third has the new borns and then in Breaking Dawn it's just... meh. The fans were pretty split down the middle on whether or not they loved or loathed Breaking Dawn, if it was more of a universally loved book then splitting it into two may work but fact is, it's just not.

    It's a big arrogant of Smeyer to have even put the idea of it being two movies out there because there's just *so much* that happens in the book to fit it into one and it's all just *so important* that none of it should be cut. *facepalm*

    The final Harry Potter movie is being split into two because pretty much all that happens in that book is important, there's a hell of a lot of plot and action going on and to even begin to do that book justice it needed to be split into two - with Breaking Dawn that's just not the case, I've read fanfics (written before BD's release) with the same--and more creative--plots, it's not some masterpiece that will translate magnificently to the big screen.

  18. I would want one movie for many reasons. One because it would be agony having to wait again and second, if the Lord of the Rings movies and Avatar can be long and epic so can Breaking Dawn. Vampires don't age but the actors will. I'm no expert on movie makeup and all that stuff but I'm just thinking how long you can play a teenager when your mid twenties or older.
    I don't want Breaking Dawn watered down just for a teen audience, in my opinion it wouldn't be true to the story. I wanna see bruises and feathers on Isle Esme, and I wanna see Bella endure the pregnancy and labor from hell.

  19. @Twifessions- I agree they should be able to make it a long movie- and do it well, at least I hope- with the hx of movies like you mentioned and older ones like Dances with Wolves. But if they have to do two- then I agree with Irene as to the stop/starting points. And let's hope that they stay true to this book- it is not a teenage book nor should the movie be geared toward the teen audience- at least the young teens.

  20. Breaking Dawn should be one movie, just like The Lord of the Rings. This is not the Jacob saga, it's suppose to be the Epic love story between Bella and Edward, how love does conquers all. No matter how you sugar coat it, Jacob imprinting on a baby is sick, not only that he had sexual feelings for the babies mother, and battled the babies father for it's mother. Don't give me that BS about it's not about sex, it is,what's suppose to happen in 7 years when the baby is full grown. All this bull about blood suckers, Jacob wants a baby blood sucker. Edward's daughter of all people, that's good for Jacob, now he has to spend forever running after Edwards daughter he he he. Team Jacob ,whatever, it doesn't matter, because that is not the story. The story is Bella and Edward's love story. Just have one long movie and stick to the book, don't gloss over because you want the tweens screaming like fools, Breaking Dawn is a mature book.
