There has been a reluctance to talk about the film adaptation of “Breaking Dawn”, the fourth and final film in the “Twilight” series which has yet to announce a production date.
Anyone who has read the book though will understand why. Amongst its content (SPOILERS AHEAD) are scenes with a vampire swimming off the Brazilian coast, at least two bouts of extremely rough teenage coitus, a foetus that turns its mother into a quadriplegic, a fang-assisted caesarian, and a werewolf who considers a newborn baby his ‘soul mate’.
But with the film version of the second book having hauled in nearly half a billion dollars worldwide in its first fortnight, the studio has to make it. Now, Michael Fleming reports that Summit is indeed quite interested in splitting the film into two and shooting them back to back – much like what is being done with “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”.
Deals have to be re-opened and re-negotiated for that to happen though (the cast will get BIG pay raises), and the company is said to be campaigning for “New Moon” director Chris Weitz to come back and shoot the films. The catch is they have a deal ready for “The Gardener”, Weitz’s next project, but they won’t close it as yet as they want to try and get him involved again.
