Melissa Rosenberg on Adapting Breaking Dawn

March 25, 2010 at 5:53 AM (Breaking Dawn)

             Do you get any feedback from the fans when you, for example.. cut certain scenes? 

MR: “I have a fan site, and the fans will weigh in and say wow! you’ve cut too many things out.. or say I’ve done a fantastic job. They are very kind on my site, there are other sites I know that I don’t read, because I can’t handle that kind of intensity. You can’t make all the fans happy, you try to make as many as possible happy.” 

How is that going to be a challenge for the last one? (’Breaking Dawn’) because as you know, that’s the big one. 

MR: “It’s the big one, it’s gonna be a big challenge, and I guarantee you that not all of the fans will be happy, and I guarantee you some of them will be.
You have to give up the ideal of making everybody happy, it’s just not gonna happen, but you hope you make the majority happy. Again, for that last book it is about taking that specific character Bella on her journey. It’s a big journey, it’s a massive change for her, and you hope to realize that.”  

What did director Chris Weitz bring to ‘New Moon’ that you think was valuable to the series? 

MR: “He was so good. He opened up the franchise. He opened it into this sweeping epic story. Twilight was a very intimate personal movie. it was a small movie, it had almost an independent feel to it. Chris made it into a beautiful spectacle, he really expanded it, expanded the world of it.” 

Going back to ‘Breaking Dawn’, how far along are you in the planning, with production coming up pretty soon? 

MR: “It’s coming up very soon, it’s all deep into the discussions and working on the story, and figuring out what it’s gonna be… we’re deep in the middle of it.” 

Any word on when it will “officially” be green-lit?

 MR: “I don’t know, but obviously soon.. vampires aren’t supposed to age, so you know.”
