For some reason, this particular rumor that she and Summit were having creative differences over whether “Breaking Dawn” should be one movie or two stuck out and she chose to refute it on her website.

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 get fabricated to stir things up, but there’s no basis to this particular story.
There have been lots of “Breaking Dawn” rumors circulating in the past year; pretty much since the idea the film could be split first popped up on the Internet. It seems strange that this should be the story Stephenie chose to respond to. Maybe it hit too close to home, or maybe she just didn’t like being called out. Either way, the entire full circle story seems a bit pointless as we still have learned nothing new about the film. Maybe the next time you come out of your Arizonian cave, SM, you can give us the smallest tidbit of new news?
