Stephenie Meyer Unsure If Twilight Breaking Dawn Should Be One Film or Two, Possible CG Renesmee

Twilight Bites: The Latest Breaking Dawn Movie Updates

Peter Facinelli isn't the only one who has been blabbing about Breaking Dawn recently. New sources are spilling info about the behind-the-scenes workings of the upcoming final chapter in the Twilight series — and one bit of news has me positively cringing.

For the other gossip (warning: big spoiler if you haven't read Breaking Dawn!),

.

  • When will filming begin?
    They hope to shoot the fourth book as early as this Fall in Vancouver, according to a recent interview with the film's producer, Wyck Godfrey.
  • How are they going to pull off Renesmee, the half vampire, half human child of Bella and Edward?
    Godfrey shed some light on this, as well: "I keep having visions of Benjamin Button in my head. 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."

Shrinking down a human a la Honey I Shrunk the Kids? Oy. I bet the members of my Twilight the Saga group have a thing or two to say about this. Hopefully the final Renesmee won't look as ridiculous as she sounds.

What do you think about these latest Breaking Dawn tidbits?

I think they can definitely fit everything into one movie. A lot of Breaking Dawn, quite frankly, was Jacob running around and complaining. And the training and bringing in the other visitors can be cut down too, a bit.

Akasha - the problem with just using children to portray Renesmee is that she's supposed to be completely beyond her years , she could communicate and understand everything going on around her when she was just newborn. It would be hard for a child actor to portray that. I didn't really like Breaking Dawn, probably my least favorite book so i doubt the movie will be awesome

i agree with akasha, just use a real kid. the cg/benjamin button thing sounds pretty ridiculous. and i think a lot of the fourth book could be cut out and they could still make a good movie.

i highly doubt that the effects in Breaking Dawn will be on par w/ Benjamin Button....especially if they are talking about starting filming in the fall and they have absolutely nothing currently! sounds to me that they will be rushing to pump out this last movie and the script and visual effects will suffer!

I don't understand the problem? They can just as easily use a number of different children since Renesmee just grows up really fast. Use a newborn, then a kid a few months older, up till you get to a toddler. Kids change so much in the first 5 years that as long as they are similar it shouldn't be too much of a problem. Although the fact that by law you can only use kids that young for 20 minutes at a time might be the bigger problem.

Oh well. They can't do any worse than they already have. The movies have already ruined the books for me.

The description of Renesmee from the book makes the portrayal on film daunting. However, the effects used in Benjamin Button was done so well, I could see how they can pull it off using an actor and CGI.

Sucks they wont start filming until the fall. That's a long wait from the Eclipse release. Oh well.

I hope the final movie has a lot of hotness and action, or if they are going to make two movies it better has a back up story, because the book is a little lame in the beginning and at the end the whole action is cut off, so it is gonna be a lot of work for a big ending.
