Melissa Rosenberg: The two-part Breaking Dawn adaptation will NOT be as explicit as the book.

screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg has suggested that the
two-part Breaking Dawn adaptation will not be as explicit as
the book.

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Rosenberg hinted that she may tone down the more controversial elements of
Stephenie Meyer's final Twilight novel, which includes sex, a
bloody birth scene and werewolf Jacob "imprinting" on Bella Swan's child

She said: "On the fan site, on Facebook, all the comments are 'It has to be R rated! You have to show the childbirth!
Gore and guts and sex!'. 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."

Rosenberg added that she has strived to make Bella a more formidable force in the
movies than she is in the novels: "She doesn't have the physical
strength of Edward and all of them. So how do you make the character
strong when she's physically vulnerable? There really is a goal to give
her stamina and other strengths. She really is a role model."

Discussing Kristen Stewart's involvement in the series, Rosenberg called the
actress "tremendous" and "one of the reasons why we got Bill Condon [to

i think its a conspiracy to take our attention off of the fact that she is removing the Jacob imprinting on Renesmee part. I have always told my twifriends not to expect the imprinting in the movie. People who have not read the books will not understand. I mean, even as a fan of the saga, the imprinting parts have always kinda rubbed me the wrong way. Imagine to the novice movie-fan!
Yes, I believe this was more about quickly disclosing the no-imprinting part...throw into the no-sex scene part and hope that no one notices the other omission.

I hope all the important scenes make it into the movie, like the childbirth scene. But we also have to remember that in the book, Stephenie does not write out all the details of the sex. It just leads up to the sex, where our imaginations take over, and then they wake up to feathers and bruises. They do REALLY need to leave all of that in the movie or it will super suck!

OF COURSE THE IMPRINTING SCENE WILL HAPPEN!! It is an EXTREMELY IMPORTANT part of the book and explains a lot (like why the wolves don't kill Renesmee or Bella or the Cullens for breaking the treaty etc. And why Jacob isn't still chasing after Bella.) This will not be cut from the movie, Stephenie will NOT ALLOW IT!! I can't BELIEVE people even think that Steph will allow that to be cut!! That's like cutting out Bella being pregnant at all!!!!!!!!! IT WILL NOT BE CUT!!!!!
