Twilight Fourth Novel “Breaking Dawn” To Break Down?

Breaking Down | Twilight Saga

On Monday, it has been announced that “Breaking Dawn,” the fourth film based on Stephenie Meyer‘s “Twilight” novels, has been given an early green light for production. Over the past two days, rumors have flown about whether a film based on the final book is already in some stage of pre-production and that work will begin on “Breaking Dawn” in the late spring of 2010.

But Summit Entertainment spokesman Paul Pflug declined to confirm or deny the report, saying only,
“Summit has no comment on that rumor at this time.”

If you ask the screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, who is currently writing the script for the third movie, “Eclipse,” a fourth “Twilight” film is not a go – at least, not just yet:

“The most I’ve heard from Summit is ‘re-read it and start thinking about it.’”

Now sources say author Stephenie Meyer is wrestling with how the book can possibly be adapted for the target tween audience, considering its more mature subject matter. Meyer is worried about the fourth novel’s steamy sex scenes and a envelope-pushing birth scene, saying,

“As far as I know, Stephenie was still having meetings asking, ‘Can we really make this into a movie?’”

(SPOILERS ahead for “Breaking Dawn.”)

In the final book, Edward and Bella’s half-vampire baby threatens her life in utero, prompting debates about the sanctity of life and the possibility of abortion. On top of that, Jacob and his Wolf Pack see the unborn child as a danger to the world in general and plan to kill Bella in order to destroy the baby. Also complicating matters is that the vampire high council also want Bella and the child dead rather than having either accidentally reveal the existence of vampires.

New Moon,” the second film in the series, is currently being filmed in Vancouver and has an expected US release date of November 20, 2009.
Third movie “Eclipse” is reportedly due in cinemas in June 2010.

    I have seen Twilight and Twilight Saga:New Moon. I am so excited to see Twilight Saga:Eclipse. I have heard there is concern about making the movie of Twilight Saga:Breaking Dawn because they don’t know how to film it without cutting out most of the story line. I say make the damn movie and rate it R. Most parents let their kids see the movies anyways. Sex and birth is all part of life. We all learn about it. Why not show it. They show films in school anyways. I will be so pissed if they don’t make the film and if they do they cut important details out of it. That’s my opinion-what do you all think?

  • danny says:

    they r movies

  • Jen says:

    If they do not make the breaking dawn movie or movies it will be very disappointing. Even if they have to raise it from PG to R, I think it would still be worth it. The series appeals to more than just adolescents and it would give it more of a fan boost to include even the racier scenes from the book in the movie(s). I know my husband would be more inclined to watch it if the blood and gore were included. And me and my friends would see it multiple times if it was to get a little steamy. ;)

  • i have watched the first two movies of twilight saga. the story is something told in way that viewers would want to see more. And the thing is, they end it that way. after watching the second one, i couldn’t wait to watch the third movie and see how things will end. One thing i find funny is the way edward speaks. he always whispers.

  • i thought the twilight saga ends up to the third book. I never heard of a “braking dawn” book of another twilight novel.

  • Pants says:

    Twilight is not a saga. A saga is a “heroic narrative.” There is nothing heroic about Twilight. It’s some stupid girl whining about how hard her life is (when really, she’s the most popular girl in school and doesn’t want any contact with anyone other than Edward and Jacob) and her choice between necrophilia and bestiality. Reality check, people.
