Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn
Just like Deathly Hallows, the finale Twilight book will be split into two movies. Filming officially started on the 1st of November and the first half should be released the 18th November of next year. The second half was rumoured to come out the following summer but it has been confirmed that it will hit cinemas November 16, 2011.
The biggest question fans are asking is where is the movie split? The book is broken into three sections, the first and third follow Bella and the middle one centres around Jacob. Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, who has worked on all three previous Twilight films, said that she thinks the movies should be divided into; Bella as a human, then Bella as a vampire. The decision will ultimately be made by director Bill Condon.
Newborn baby Renesmee, daughter of Edward and Bella, will be played by ten year old Mackenzie Foy. It seems a little weird to me that Bella’s going to give birth to a pre-teen, but hey it’s not my call. Mackenzie’s dreams will be coming true as her character, the baby, is Taylor Lautner’s new love interest…. yes that’s how weird the story gets. Jacob will probably have to serve a jail sentence and be put on the sex offenders list, but on the bright side by the time he gets out she’ll have reached the legal age.
The cast original signed on for four movies, so when this movie was split in two there were questions about who would return. It was made very clear that any actor could be replaced, like Rachelle Lefevre in the previous film. However it has been confirmed that all of the major characters have signed on for both films. This includes Edward and the other Cullen’s, Bella and her father.
No trailers or promos have been released yet, which isn’t surprising as filming only started thirteen days ago, but I’ll post the trailer here when one is released.
