For those Twi-hard fans who dont want to know details of the split DO NOT READ
Producer Wyck Godfrey, who is busy at work on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 recently took a break from the Baton Rogue set to address some questions regarding the contents of the movie.
Breaking Dawn is hand-down the craziest installment of Stephenie Meyer young adult novel series, complete with racy Brazilian honeymoon sex, a terrifying pregnancy, and the threat of a vampire massacre on a nuclear scale. A lot of fans are concerned about the story arriving on screen in tact, and where exactly the split between The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 comes in.
Here is what Wyck Godfrey had to say:
“We basically want to take the audience through the emotional part of Bella’sjourney as she becomes a vampire. The first part will cover the wedding, the honeymoon and the birth. The film ends just before she embarks on her supernatural transformation. The story will break from her and follow Jacob throughout the course of the movie as he struggles with his own dilemma. There is a sense that as Bella and the Cullens (Edward’s makeshift vampire clan) deal with her pregnancy, the world is still turning outside with Jacob. The second half is more of an action film in terms of life-and-death stakes, There are the pangs of newlywed tension that occur that are relatable even in a fantasy film. Marriage is not quite the experience that they thought it was.”
Wyck also talked about the truly horrifying birth sequence, and how director Bill Condon plans to pull it off and still get a PG-13 rating:
“With Twilight’s core of under-18 fans, it would be a crime against our audience to go R-rated. However, this is based on a much more mature book. We need to progress and be more sophisticated. A compromise: Having the bloody, bone-crushing delivery be seen only through Bella’s eyes. She is looking through the haze, experiencing pain and everything rushing around her. We only see what she sees.”
