Melissa Rosenberg talks about the Breaking Dawn Scrips
(I love this old picture of Melissa on the set of Twilight with Kristen and Rob)
Melissa Rosenberg has been talking to MTV about the Breaking Dawn scripts.
Its good to hear that shes working so hard on these scripts, and I can see why shes having trouble with the final battle scene. Alot of that scene in the book is built up internally in our characters and its alot of tension so it will be very interesting to see how Melissa and Bill go about that.
“They’re coming along,” Rosenberg said. “I just flew in last night from working with [‘Dawn’ director] Bill Condon, prepping the scripts. It’s a lot of work, I’m exhausted,” she added. Rosenberg also revealed that she’s between 75 and 80 percent finished with the two screenplays. “But we’re intent on making them the best scripts yet.”
Regarding the biggest challenge she faces in finishing “Dawn,” parts 1 and 2, Rosenberg said it’s the climactic “battle scene” — in which the two opposing vampire groups face off in dramatic fashion at the end of the book — that’s proving to be her biggest obstacle, rather than the infamous “birth scene”.
“The final battle sequence is a big challenge because it lasts 25 pages,” Rosenberg told us. “It’s almost an entire three-act story in and of itself. You have to track (kept all in one setting) hundreds of characters. It’s an enormous challenge to choreograph on the page and for Bill to choreograph on the stage.”
