Godfrey Talks “Breaking Dawn” Challenges

“Twilight” franchise producer Wyck Godfrey tells The Los Angeles Times that plans for the adaptation of the fourth and final book in the series, “Breaking Dawn”, are still being determined.

Godfrey touched upon plans to split it into two films ala the final “Harry Potter” – “The issue [of whether there will be one or two movies] is not going to be resolved until we get the full treatment and see whether it’s organic. It really has to do with how much level of detail from the books there is, with all of these new vampires that appear in ‘Breaking Dawn,’ the whole section about Jacob… It’s a very long single movie if it does become a single movie.”

The other challenge of course is Renesmee, Bella’s half-vampire, half-human daughter who is able to read, talk, run and hunt despite being a toddler. Godfrey says “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.”

Despite “New Moon” helmer Chris Weitz being linked to the films, Godfrey admits they haven’t signed a director yet who will be able to handle “the emotions and the intensity of the love story,” as well as the “action and visual effects.”
