OK this is a little strange. NewMoonMovie.org is reporting that there is a total rumor about Breaking Dawn being made into a three part trilogy. I have read previously that Stephenie Meyer even said she thought it should be made into multiple films. But three? That's an interesting concept to ponder. Again - total rumor - I am so not "reporting" anything here.
Here's a quote I am not overly thrilled with:
There will likely be quite a bit of tweaking to the novel due to the explicit sex and birth scenes to avoid an R rating.
I don't like the word "tweaking" in this case. No way. The book is the book. The story is the story. Trying to avoid an R rating is something I find really upsetting. Ya know, as a more mature Twilight fan, I have had to endure a different Volvo... dark clothes on Edward... an attempt at "Dark and Scary Edward" ("AS IF I WOULD NEED ANY OF THATTTT")... and lots of strange fashions from Bella (girls, leave your converse at home while attending the prom) - all so they can pander to the teen market. Clearly they weren't expecting the onslaught of 30 and 40-somethings who love these books. And now they've made a weird one-dimensional, shooting practice-esque Edward for New Moon... so the teens can get their fill of Robert Pattinson....even though Bella only heard Edward's (velvet) voice in the book. (Which is an insult to teens, btw, I think they can handle only hearing Edward's voice. The whole point of him being gone is that. HE'S GONE. It makes the reunion so much better because you haven't SEEN Edward in so long). OK, whatev - I'll deal. But come on. Changing anything about Breaking Dawn so they can get a younger rating? That doesn't sit well with me. That birth scene is intense! It's raw! It's full of emotion! How do you tweak it for a less-mature audience?! Ugh. OK I'll shut up now because a) it's a rumor and b) I'll give myself agida.
