Breaking Dawn confirmed? How many films will there be?
There are rumors a-plenty on the internet this morning, about Breaking Dawn, about Rob, about Robsten. Let’s talk about each one individually. First up: Breaking Dawn!
E! Online reports that one of their “inside sources” confirmed that screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg is signed on to write the Breaking Dawn script. However, the article reiterates that we don’t have any other details about the fourth installment in the franchise, including whether it would be done in one or two films. But they do hint that they might be leaning toward multiple films. Click through to see what they had to say.
Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg will definitely be finishing what she started when it comes to adapting the fourth and final book of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn. Deep Twi tells us that, although it won’t officially be confirmed for a while, Melissa is tapped to finish out the films.
Marc Malkin chatted with Melissa last week, and while she was playing very coy about BD plans (as well as Robsten), using the whole “everything is still up in the air” line, our well-placed source dishes that it’s a done deal.
Uh, well, want to know why that is? We’ve heard a bit of incredibly juicy info…
Execs over at Summit are going back to the idea of splitting BD into two films.
Remember, last time we checked in with Deep Twi it was looking like Dawn would only be one movie, but recently everyone internally has been referring to it as “the Breaking Dawn films.” That’s right, you didn’t imagine the plural ending there.
Still, nothing has been decided yet. Most likely what’s happening is Rob ‘n’ crew agreed to a fourthâ€¦not fifth. Once the cast determines if they are up for five, then Melissa can plan accordingly about how to pen out this fourth flick.

Hollywood Crush puts in their two cents, saying making two films, from a story standpoint, is a bad idea.
While there is certainly enough content in â€œBreaking Dawnâ€ to drag it out over two movies, I donâ€™t think it should be done. There are going to be spoilers for a little while I continue my rant, so if you havenâ€™t read â€œBreaking Dawnâ€ yet, go out and remedy that and then come back and finish reading this post. The first â€œBreaking Dawnâ€ film would be what? Bella and Edward getting married, going on a honeymoon and getting preggers? And then us having to sit around and watch as she gradually kills herself for a baby? Sorry guys, but I donâ€™t want to spend two hours on that. And sure, the second film will be cool to see Bella run around as a vamp for maybe 30 minutes, tops, but the rest of that book is just an anti-climactic battle-less sequence!
My thoughts: Prior rumors that Breaking Dawn may be made as three films is unlikely. There just isn’t enough story to carry three films. That is just MY opinion. I am back and forth on whether there should be multiple movies. While on one hand, I want as MUCH as possible. On the other hand, I kind of agree with Hollywood Crush about the material not being enough for multiple films. Mainly, I am just really excited that Breaking Dawn will make it to screen.
