Breaking Dawn Movie Playing Red Light/Green Light
Like Alice has said before, I'm almost positive that Breaking Dawn will become a movie in one form or another. The big question right now, and I think you'll all agree, is whether it will be made into two movies or not.
Stephenie Meyer updated her site today addressing this very question:
"Just a quick note on the subject of the Breaking Dawn film: there is no drama over whether the book should be one movie or two. My personal feeling is that it would be very difficult to cram the whole story into one movie (as I've said in many interviews previous to this), but if a great way of doing that surfaces, I'm all for it. Two or one, whichever way fits the story best is fine by me, and everyone I've spoken with at Summit seems to feel the same way. We're all excited to move forward on this, and we are slowly and surely getting there. I know people are anxious for news, and so sometimes gossip gets fabricated to stir things up, but there's no basis to this particular story.
While this is the main question most everyone is asking, there are several other problems that are not helping Summit give Breaking Dawn the green light. The producer of the Twilight saga movies, Wyck Godfrey, talked to the LA Times and explained some of these problems:
“When it was released in August 2008, fan reaction was intense and divided with some “Twi-hards” expressing confusion and dismay over a plot that involved *SPOILER ALERT* a recently graduated 19-year-old Bella giving birth to a half-human/half-vamp daughter named Renesmee, who grows much faster than the average mortal child and who possesses a unique way of communicating with those around her, clearly inherited from Dad’s side of the family.
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. All three stars are signed for “Breaking Dawn,” he said, meaning that Stewart and Pattinson will be dealing with the joys and woes of interspecies parenting and newly minted heartthrob Taylor Lautner will return as often-shirtless shape-shifter Jacob Black.”

Speaking of Breaking Dawn, Collider recently interviewed Peter Facinelli, and he talked a bit about Breaking Dawn. But mostly he talks about Eclipse, Twitter, and some of his other projects.
