No Need for a Gory Birth Scene in Breaking Dawn

June 16, 2010

breaking-dawn-coverIn a new interview with MTV, Melissa Rosenberg downplays The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn‘s inevitable birth scene, saying that you don’t really need to really see the whole bloody, gory mess.

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.

Agree/disagree?  Either way, it’s ultimately the director’s decision:

[But] from a screenwriter standpoint that’s gonna land more squarely in the director’s hands.  That’s one of those things [where] I kind of say [and] make a few sort of general suggestions on the page and say, “Go! Go, Bill! Do it!”

    <>. I don’t realy have a problem on cutting the whole bloody birth scene. There is defenetely the perspective of limiting the scene. But to be honest there are some scenes that from the beggining have been removed from the books (why Stephenie, WHY) and in their place have ben placed three gaps. Those are the sex scenes. I am not vulgar but i really want to see them unite with the most honest and sacred way. I really hope they do something about it. Like begin like they do in most films and when their like….done. Please Bill Condon.

    i don’t really know if they should show it cause, i think they aren’t sure because they know that if they show it they will lose money in box-office because all the fans that are young will not be allowed to see it.. ( i would like to see it, it would be cool.. But i just don’t think they are, they wouldn’t want to lose fans and money.)
