25 Breakout Stars to Watch for in 2011
www.nextmovie.com: There are only so many Will Smiths and Natalie Portmans to go around, and as much as Hollywood producers would love to cast them in everything (for reals, Portman’s in like 100 movies this year) they have to eventually take a chance on some fresh faces. But which of those faces have the appropriate level of freshness?

Next Factor: Although he only had a minor role in “Eclipse,” Stewart’s character Seth Clearwater becomes integral in the two-part “Twilight Saga” finale “Breaking Dawn” as both Jacob’s second-in-command and an unlikely werewolf ally to Bella and Edward. That’s good news for the 16-year-old actor/wrestler/singer/dancer/model. Team Clearwater, anyone?

What does the future hold for Bella, Edward in ‘Breaking Dawn’?
www.usatoday.com: 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.
It good to know that Carter Burwell is back for the Breaking Dawn score, I’ve really liked all of the music that we’ve heard in the movies, but I think at it is also good that he’s back because he already knows what to look for since he work with Twilight before, he already must know what music to use for Edward and Bella in special occasions and what to use for the dramatic scenes 😉 What do you think of this? Would have you preferred one of the other previous composers to return for Breaking Dawn?
It’s funny to hear that David Slade didn’t know what the PCA were 🙂 He must still be new to all this attention. What did you think of his tweets?
So, in words of the twilight producer, the film will split before Bella completes her transformation. I’m trying to picture how they’ll do it, maybe something like Bella seeing her baby, Rose takes Nessie away, Jacob follows, he sees her and everything turns black and credits roll. Something dramatic like in New Moon “Marry, Bella”…who knows. What did you think of the interview?
