Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg gave major praise to the film's director Bill Condon, calling their working relationship "one of the best creative collaborations of [her] career." The reason? Rosenberg said, "He really pushed me further and further with the emotional complexities of the movie."
One of the most complex moments on-screen, of course, was the imprinting scene, which she noted "was tricky to write" because of the sensitive subject matter, but which she approached as "really about conveying it as a spiritual experience and not the physical body." Job well done, yes?
Melissa Rosenberg also had some information to share about next year's final installment to the Saga, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2.
"Well, I got to cut away . . . to see what the Volturi were up to . . . I mean, the Volturi’s a big threat throughout movie two, and we kind of just check in with them and see what they’re up to. So, they’re travelling around the world, collecting an army . . . They’re trying to collect them. The question is whether or not they succeed," she explained.
