If you’re wondering what in the world is going on with the movie version of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, or whether or not it’ll be made in one film installment or two, you’re not alone! Even the books’ author Stephenie Meyer says the decision process has been a slow one. But one thing she can tell fans is that there’s no drama between her and Summit, despite reports.
Stephenie updated her loyal Twi-hards today on her web site, writing:
“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.”
After placating fans who no doubt are all for as many movies as they can get, Stephenie updates her followers on the timeline… sort of.
“We’re all excited to move forward on this, and we are slowly and surely getting there,” she writes. “I know people are anxious for news, and so sometimes gossip gets fabricated to stir things up, but there’s no basis to this particular story.”
Maybe she should have a chat with Twilight star Peter Facinelli, who recently told reporters he’s clueless about the fate of Breaking Dawn as well.
“Usually the fans know before I do,” he confessed. “I’m sure I’ll see it on the Internet.”
