Twilight producers have no idea how to make Breaking Dawn

Jan. 12, 2010by:

It appears the TWILIGHT movie money machine has run into a wall. That would be the thick 768 pages of Breaking Dawn, the final book in the series that can only be described as “batshit insane” and when it was released, even split Twi-hards themselves down the middle as most of them couldn’t handle it’s lunacy.

Well, it appears that someone at the studio finally got around to reading the book, and now are admitting there are certain “challenges” ahead. I’m going to give you a big ‘ol SPOILER ALERT here, in case you really don’t want to know what I’m talking about.

The plot of Breaking Dawn loosely translates to “Edward gets Bella pregnant, he gives her a cesarean with his teeth, the half-vamp baby grows super fast and has psychic powers and Jacob the werewolf falls in love with it.” A word that comes to mind is “unfilmable,” and even the producers seems a bit unsure of how to handle it.

Wyck Godfrey, the producer of all the films in the "Twilight" saga, admits that the creative team still doesn't know how they'll handle the character in the "Breaking Dawn" movie, but said that the plan is absolutely for the production to go forward -- as either one or two installments -- with an eye toward beginning to shoot in Vancouver this fall.

"I keep having visions of '[The Curious Case of] Benjamin Button' in my head," Godfrey said, referring to David Fincher's Oscar-nominated 2008 fantasy about a man who becomes physically younger as he ages. "It's certainly going to be visual effects in some capacity along with an actor. I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being a full CG creation, but it also may be a human shot on a soundstage that then is used to shrink down. I don't know. We need a director. When we get a director, that director will need to come with a point of view of how they want to tackle it."

Wait, what? What’s with all the Benjamin Button talk? Doesn’t the kid just age normally, but faster? Or is it less creepy to have Jacob fall in love with a CGI creation rather than a live newborn girl? I wouldn’t want to be in the room when he read that chapter.

Extra Tidbit: Please, please make a CGI psychic vampire seductress baby. PLEASE.

Hopefully this film "tries" to get made and alot of the actors/actresses wise up and quit out on the movie. Especially the guy that plays Jacob because that dude going to have to be in love with a baby adult vampire thing. If I read that I had to do something like that for this movie, I'd walk of the fucking set right there. lol.

Because the book is so insane, DAVID CRONENBERG should direct. I'm serious about it. How hilarious would it all be?

I pray to God this movie gets made. I hate this series to the core yet I'd dress myself up as a teenage girl with pigtails if it meant seeing this movie made as a 'good' adaptation. I'm not against shitty movies, Transformers 2 was fun, but lazy, shitty, and downright boring movies making bucks because two dudes decided to workout and then walk around without shirts? I can't stand that shit. So make this movie. I wanna be there opening night to see every Twihard's face of disgust and shame.

MEH

Just make the third movie based on a brand new story. MOST Twilight twits, er, fans, saw the movie first, THEN read the book. Those who loved the book are probably batshit insane anyway. Those who thought the book was "less than oarsum", might have sense to see it can't be made into a flick.

Hey, this wouldn't be the first time Hollywood fucked with something just for the buck. Shit, I say fuck with it, and after the dust settles, and it makes $200gazillion bucks it's first 2 weeks, nobody

OR: Just let this shimmering dog lie in it's own feces.

Either way, it won't affect my viewing schedule.

It's as ridiculous as it sounds...

It's the only Twilight book worth reading if you can get past the lousy writing in order to get some laughs out of the stupidity of the story.

CHUD has an article with more details on why it SHOULD be filmed. It's good for a laugh (plus you get more info on the absurd story).

Whether they do a straight up adaption or try to fix it and fail, I'm sure this is going to be funny as hell.

It's Hollywood, so they'll just go the predictable route of her having a slightly uncomfortable but ultimately normal birth sans umbilical chomping and then Teen Wolf will become the baby girl's protective guard-dog rather than having sexy-time thoughts for her.

Less fun, isn't it?

I hope they do it, cause it will be hysterical! I would almost go see it, just to see the awkward look of horror and confusion on the faces of 13 year-old girls and 40 year-old moms.

Sad thing is, it will get made. Originally they were going to split it into two parts.

I'm almost to the part where she gives birth and it has been a fucking challenge to get through. The first part is going to make people vomit, I guarantee. From then on it's the same thing over and over again. You guys thought New Moon was bad.

Yeah, I'd be smokin' a bowl too . . .

if Twilight was the only thing I was known for. I tried reading the first book and I barely got past the 2nd page. It's badly written Harlequin Romance with vampires and werewolves. Oh, and no sex.

So Breaking Dawn Is Utterly UnFilmable, You Say???

Holy shit! Who would've possibly imagined?!

P.S. Who's that chick smokin' the bowl and does she put out?

They should just make this one a hard R and include the aforementioned vampire tooth cesarean, then maybe some sort of growin up quick and killin things while simultaneously falling in love with a dog person montage. That would be hilarious, even though I'd never see it. Nice picture of Kristen Stewart smoking a bowl too, I always figured she did. You'd kinda have to to be in these movies I'd imagine.
