Twilight producers have no idea how to make Breaking Dawn
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.
