Producer Wyck Godfrey Talks About Breaking Dawn- Including Spoilers

USA Today has a new interview with Wyck Godfrey, a producer on all of the Twilight Saga films.



Torrid honeymoon sex in tropical Brazil.

The most horrifying pregnancy since Rosemary delivered her devil child.

The threat of a vampire massacre on a nuclear scale.

No wonder the film version of Breaking Dawn is coming out in two parts — the first arrives Nov. 18. (The second is due Nov. 16, 2012.)

The wrap-up to the film franchise that began in 2008 and has grossed nearly $1.8 billion worldwide is truly the event-filled mother-of-all Twilight tales, based on the massive fourth volume of Stephenie Meyer's literary phenom.

Even the most rabid Twi-hards have been nervous about how the sometimes graphic 754-page tome would translate on screen as the mixed-marriage spawn of courtly bloodsucker Edward Cullen and beloved human Bella (played by Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart) leads to friction with the Volturi, who act as vampire royalty, and the werewolf-prone Quileute tribe.

But never fear, says producer Wyck Godfrey.

Speaking from the Baton Rouge set where both installments of Breaking Dawn are shooting simultaneously, Wyck answered some of the Twi-faithful's more pressing questions.

Q: Where does the story split in half?

A: "We basically want to take the audience through the emotional part of Bella's journey as she becomes a vampire. The first part will cover the wedding, the honeymoon and the birth." The film ends just before she embarks on her supernatural transformation.

Q: The book has three segments, two of which present Bella's point of view and a middle that's devoted to the perspective of her rejected werewolf suitor, Jacob (Taylor Lautner). How is that handled?

A: "The story will break from her and follow Jacob throughout the course of the movie as he struggles with his own dilemma. There is a sense that as Bella and the Cullens (Edward's makeshift vampire clan) deal with her pregnancy, the world is still turning outside with Jacob."

Q: Why was Bill Condon, the Oscar-winning filmmaker best known for his musicals as the screenwriter of 2002's Chicagoand the director of 2006's Dreamgirls, selected as the director of the finale?

A: "These films have the most difficult stuff from a performance standpoint. With his history of directing, I can't think of anyone who would be better at bringing out the best in an actor." Plus, the director, who did the 1995 sequel to Candyman, is a fright-fare enthusiast. "He has an appetite for the genre and a passion for the Twilight books and movies."

This makes me even more nervous. I am not a fan of the Jacob parts but I guess its necessary. I just had to raise my eyebrows about the tension between Bella and Edward. If anything their relationship grew stronger, more of a partnership. I like that they want to get a sense that marriage and parenthood is not without its struggles even in a fantasy film. Nov needs to be here, Now.

O my word. I agree, Nov needs to be here NOW. I think that this 2 movies is going to be the best ever. Why is time flying when you watch the movies, but now that we must waite for November it drags.
