Director Bill Condon (who once brought us Dreamgirls) has been hired by Summit Entertainment to helm Breaking Dawn, the last opus of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga. The film is quite likely to be split in two parts, and I guess Bill Condon will helm both.
Plot of Twilight Breaking Dawn:
“Bella and Edward are finally together: following their wedding they go in honeymoon to an island off the coast of Brazil. Over there Bella, still a human, got pregnant from her husband Edward, who is a vampire.
The crossbreed child to be born is cause of concern even before her birth: the werewolves feel the child could be a threat to them (putting Jacob , and even the vampires aren’t really at ease…
During childbirth Bella loses so much blood that she is on the verge of death. But Edward must fulfill his promise to make his wife Bella into a vampire in order to save her.
Will Edward and Bella be able to save their daughter?”
As long as Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner are repuising their roles as Edward, Bella and Jacob, it’s all fine!
I think your going to do a great job. I think that you should change the rating to be true to the book. Rated R or PG-17 would be the best rating to capure the honeymoon, the birth and almost battle. What do you think?
I hope Breaking Dawn WILL NOT be Rated R or PG-17! It will eliminate a LARGE part of it’s fan base. I have read Breaking Dawn four times so far, and I think the story can be presented in a way that stays true to the book but, doesn’t have to be obscene and vulgar and eliminate a large part of the fanbase just to please a few!
I have to agree with Sue…Keeping the Movie PG-13 would be great for the majority of the fan base. You can capture the “honeymoon, the birth and almost battle.” in a a tasteful way that leaves an appropriate rating for the majority of the age group that really are the true “twihards”.
the book was tastefull to begin with. if its anything other than that, well then it’s not staying true to the book is it? Stephenie was never explicit about the honeymoon. it’s the readers that take it to a totally different level in their heads.
the producer says in an interview that edward was going to do a section w/ his teeth. the book says rosalie & edward used a scalpel until he got to the amniotic sac. what’s up w/ the gory teeth section??
