Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg is working on adapting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, but isn’t quite sure yet how she wants to handle a certain controversial scene. She says she may not even want it shown at all! ** WARNING! BREAKING DAWN SPOILERS AHEAD!**
“On the fan site, on Facebook, all the comments are, ‘It has to be R-rated! You have to show the childbirth! Gore and guts and sex!’ For me it’s actually more interesting to not see it,” Melissa told the Los Angeles Times of the already-buzzed about birthing scene. “You know, you can do childbirth without seeing childbirth… It doesn’t mean it’s any less evocative of an experience.”
But, ultimately Melissa is going to leave it to director Bill Condon to decide!
“From a screenwriter standpoint that’s gonna land more squarely in the director’s hands,” she told MTV News. “That’s one of those things [where] I kind of say [and] make a few sort of general suggestions on the page and say, ‘Go! Go, Bill! Do it!’ ”
Which would you prefer? To see the childbirth in its full glory or have it cut out (no pun intended) entirely?
Robert Pattinson may be one fan who will be disappointed if he doesn’t get to see that seen brought to life!
