HollywoodLife.com was able to catch up with Breaking Dawn movie screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg before her Writer’s Guild Foundation event in LA July 13 where she announced that they don’t plan to tone down the racy scenes! Check it out:
When we heard that Breaking Dawn was being given a PG-13 rating, we definitely booed in disappointment. That book is hot – and the sex scenes need to be shown, dammit! We at HollywoodLife.com have good news for you – despite the lack of an R-rating, the fourth and fifth films are DEFINITELY going to be steamy!
“I don’t think we’ll be toning a whole lot [of the racy scenes] down,” Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg told HollywoodLife.com exclusively during a one-on-one interview before her Writer’s Guild Foundation event in LA July 13. “We want the eroticism of the sex scenes.”
Sweet! We can’t wait to see real-life lovebirds Robert Pattinson and Kristenare going to steam up the screen! However, Melissa does say, “That doesn’t mean that one has to see it all, but you do want that [eroticism]. With the birth scene as well, I just don’t know that you have to tone it down. If you really look at the books, how much are you really seeing? I think [the movies] might wind up being saucier than the book because you’re actually seeing skin-on-skin and the horror of the birth scenes. We’re not shying away from it.”
As for how she plans on actually splitting up the epic last Twilight Saga novel into two films, Melissa has a good idea – but nothing is concrete QUITE yet. “We’re still debating the exact moment, but it’ll fall down to the first half of Bella as a human and being pregnant and a newlywed and the second half being Bella as a vampire and a parent. Somewhere in the middle of that, the break will come.”
