Melissa Rosenberg expands on the the Breaking Dawn story ~ Good or Bad thing?

Popcorn Biz reports:

Fans of the “Twilight” films are going to have a little added story to sink their teeth into.

The previous movie adaptations of Stephanie Meyer’s vamp-lit juggernaut have gone pretty much by the book, but with the final novel “Breaking Dawn” being broken into two feature films, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg tells PopcornBiz she’s enjoying a little more leeway to add some fangy flourishes of her own.

“I did actually [get to do that], because we got to fill out the story because we're doing the next two movies,” said Rosenberg. “So there was room to play and expand on some of the characters that Stephanie introduces. That was a lot of fun.”

“It's a much more grownup movie – It's an adult story,” the writer said of evolving the franchise beyond its high school origins. “The stakes are raised even higher because it's not the story of teens. It's the stories of grownups, so we're talking about marriage and children and family – and these are pretty grownup things, but sexy.”

If you haven’t read the books, beware of the SPOILER up ahead.

Rosenberg says the highlight of the story will be seeing Kristen Stewart’s character Bella become a vampire at long last. “Kristen gets to make the transformation and that is going to be so exciting to see. [Director] Bill [Condon] and I talked about it in developing this script and the screenplay. Now she's going to embody it. It's going to be so great.”

Rosenberg, who penned all of the “Twilight” films and previously wrote for Showtime’s “Dexter,” hasn’t quite adjusted to the fact that, minus a few rewrites, her bloody good run is coming to a close.

“It's a shocking experience after four years to not be writing ‘Twilight!’” she said.

So what do you think Twifans, should Melissa be making up parts for Breaking Dawn (more scenes as Bella as a vamp, make the fight scene a actual fight) or should she be sticking directly with the book? What would you like to see expanded upon?

The thing to remember is that Stephenie will have the final say and that she is also one of the producers of it. I say as long as Stephenie gives her blessing on it then it's fine. She has even said herself that some of the things that have been done in the other movies were things she wished she had thought of and put into the books.

Do you people not pay attention? I already posted this story earlier. (Second time someone has posted my same story again, after I already did.)

I think it'll be fine. She says she's just expanding on the new characters that are introduced. And I bet we'll just see more like we did in TW w/the nomads & Riley & newborns in EC. And seeing Alice's vision of the Volturi coming. I don't think it'll be too bad. And as long as SM is fine w/it so am I.

Like others here, as long as Stephanie is involved, OK. I don't trust MR and her "vision" of the saga.

Pennybug Cullen - maybe I'm not looking at the site right, but I haven't seen this before. I often don't see stories if I go too long between visits to the site. Consider this a compliment, that people are showing interest in stories you've also posted!

Yeah i don't mind at all. it can be like reading a new part to the book but actually watching it on the big screen. And if Stephenie says yes to it than it will be fine with me!(:

I'm sort of scared it's going to get ruined, but she did an amazing job with the previous movies, and Stephenie seems to think it's okay, so I'm sure it's going to be great. I'm also really exited to see more of my favorite vampires, so that's a good thing!
