“Breaking Dawn” Screenwriter Expands on “Twilight’s” Story

Posted by with No Comments

The previous movie adaptations of Stephanie Meyer’s vamp-lit juggernaut have gone pretty much by the book, but with the final novel “Breaking Dawn” being broken into two feature films, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg tells PopcornBiz she’s enjoying a little more leeway to add some fangy flourishes of her own.

“I did actually [get to do that], because we got to fill out the story because we’re doing the next two movies,” said Rosenberg. “So there was room to play and expand on some of the characters that Stephanie introduces. That was a lot of fun.

Melissa Rosenberg updated fer Facebook with some infos on “Breaking Dawn”:

Melissa Rosenberg Hi Y’all! Sorry I haven’t checked in for a while. Been immersed in the world of Breaking Dawn. I’ve been working very closely with our director Bill Condon, whose input has been SO great. He understands story, structure and character as only a fellow writer can, but he also has fantastic visual ideas. And he’s not… shying away from anything! Sex, birth, feathers, blood… it’s all in there. More later! xoxo Mel

Melissa Rosenberg Says She’s Trying To ‘Find Room’ For All Characters in Breaking Dawn

Posted by with No Comments

As all die-hard “Twilight” fans know, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg is still hard at work on finalizing the scripts for the two-part “Breaking Dawn” finale, the first of which is scheduled to begin shooting in November. MTV News was lucky enough to catch up with the “Dexter” and “Twilight” screenwriter at San Diego Comic-Con, where she held court on a “Girls Gone Genre” panel. And while she still won’t reveal where the two films will break, she did give us a few details about the birthing scene and the “Book of Jacob,” as well as some dish on how she plans to handle all of the new characters Stephenie Meyer introduces in “Dawn.”

“It’s extremely challenging to introduce those new characters because you already have quite a slew of characters to service,” Rosenberg admitted of Meyer’s final book. “The Cullen family is large, the wolf family is large, you have three leads … finding room for all of them is a challenge. For me, it is about pulling forward the ones that are essential and really making sure they have a presence.”

Naturally, Rosenberg didn’t say specifically which characters would or would not appear in the films, but simply that she hopes “all of them will be there in one shape or another.”

Melissa talks about ‘Bella in Breaking Dawn’

Posted by with No Comments

During the interview Rosenberg had a chance to clarify comments she had made in an earlier interview with the The Los Angeles Times regarding what viewers should be exposed to when Bella gives birth to her and Edward’s child in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

“That was a misquote. The childbirth – all the scenes, I feel – should be on screen. I think perhaps what I was referring to was, would we actually see Edward’s teeth through the placenta? I don’t think so. I don’t think we need to see that, and if someone needs to see that, I think they should take a look at that. [Laughs.] I believe it will be implied, but I don’t think we’ll see teeth in the placenta.”

Rosenberg also discussed the changes we are going to see in Bella during the much anticipated fourth film:

“I think seeing Bella as a vampire and her adjusting to her powers and embracing them, those are all really fun scenes to write. Particularly when you picture Kristen Stewart playing her, and the way she’s embodied Bella as a sort of awkward, fidgety persona. When she turns into a vampire, all of that goes away.”

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 comes to theaters November 18th, 2011 and stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Ashley Greene, Anna Kendrick, Jackson Rathbone, Nikki Reed, Peter Facinelli. The film is directed by Bill Condon.

Popsugar interviews Melissa Rosenberg about Breaking Dawn

Posted by with 1 Comment

Now that Eclipse has hit theaters and broken box office records, Twilight fans are already anxiously awaiting the next onscreen chapter in Bella and Edward’s love story: Breaking Dawn. We talked exclusively to Melissa Rosenberg, the screenwriter behind all of the Twilight films, to find out what we can expect from the final two installments. She weighed in on whether or not Bella’s childbirth scene will make it to the screen, shared her most surprising fan moment, and dished on her creative relationship with Stephenie Meyer.

PopSugar: How did you feel about the decision to split Breaking Dawn into two movies?
Melissa Rosenberg: Relief, actually, because it was going to be quite a challenge to condense such a large book into one movie. That’s always the challenge with all of these and, more so, Breaking Dawn. Having a little more room to breathe is nice . . . on the other hand, there’s also the challenge of making sure there’s enough to fill two movies.

PS: We’ve heard there are some scenes you want to avoid showing on screen in Breaking Dawn. For example, Bella giving birth. Can you tell us why?
MR: That was a misquote. The childbirth — all the scenes, I feel — should be on screen. I think perhaps what I was referring to was, would we actually see Edward’s teeth through the placenta? I don’t think so. I don’t think we need to see that, and if someone needs to see that, I think they should take a look at that.
