‘Breaking’ News…

I’m not one to pick a side when it comes to Team Edward or Team Jacob (because I choose both) but I will take a stand on the latest Breaking Dawn gossip.

The film, set to be split into two parts, has reported to be much different than Stephanie Meyer’s novel. Melissa Rosenberg, the screenwriter for the series, told the Los Angeles Times that the films will not be as explicit as the book.

The fourth installment of the book includes more controversial elements like sex and a gruesome and bloody birth scene. But Rosenberg told the Los Angeles Times, “For me it’s actually more interesting to not see it. You know, you can do childbirth without seeing childbirth… it doesn’t mean it’s any less evocative of an experience.”

I know the films are geared toward a younger audience, but is it really necessary to remove major parts of the storyline like that? Twihards have shown their disappointment on the Facebook fan page saying, “It has to be R rated! You have to show the childbirth! Gore and guts and sex!”

We will have to wait and see how these scenes pan out, but one thing is for sure, if writers keep eliminating the best parts of the story (a shirtless Taylor Lautner for example) we may be in for some pretty drab viewing.

Phew! OK I’m finished ranting now, apologies…

Twilight: Eclipse opens in cinemas on 9th July 2010.
