Despite the many rumors circulating about “Breaking Dawn,” the final installment in the Twilight saga, it seems as though no progress has been made on the movie’s production in the three months since [movie id="414921"]“New Moon”[/movie] was released. And while the movie’s stars seem just as clueless about the big production decisions as everyone else, there seems to be a similar trend in their line of thinking.
The biggest question surrounding “Breaking Dawn” — and the first decision that needs to be made in order for contract deals and production to begin — is whether the story will be split into two films. Despite numerous rumors that seem to lean one way or the other, everyone’s opinion seems to depend on the script.
While promoting his upcoming film [movie id="430301"]“Remember Me,”[/movie] leading man [movieperson id="365131"]Robert Pattinson[/movieperson] said he still doesn’t know whether “Breaking Dawn” will be made as one film or two. As to his preference, Pattinson answered that “it really just depends on the script, either way.”
This echoes his co-star Kristen Stewart’s opinion on the matter, which she offered while promoting “The Runaways” at the Sundance Film Festival in January. “I haven’t seen a script, but I’m not alone in really, really wondering how they’re going to handle that,” she said at the time.
“Twilight Saga” scribe Stephenie Meyer also voiced similar sentiments back in mid-January when there was a rumor that she was against “Breaking Dawn” being two movies. “Two or one, whichever way fits the story best is fine by me,” Meyer announced on her Web site. “And everyone I’ve spoken with at Summit seems to feel the same way.”
Pattinson also addressed the rumors about “Breaking Dawn” being filmed in 3-D and, as Stewart indicated in an interview for “The Yellow Handkerchief,” was against the idea.
“The 3-D thing confuses me,” Pattinson said. “I haven’t seen ‘Avatar’ or any of these 3-D movie things yet. The idea of it … I remember 3-D movies from when I was a kid, and I can just picture it giving me a headache.”
