STEPHENIE MEYER RESPONDS TO RUMORS SURROUNDING BREAKING DAWN “DRAMA”
There were rumors recently swirling around cyberspace that Stephenie Meyer was against splitting Breaking Dawn into two films. The author posted a message on her personal website today to address the issue and share her opinion with her fans.

Just a quick note on the subject of the Breaking Dawn film: there is no drama over whether the book should be one movie or two. My personal feeling is that it would be very difficult to cram the whole story into one movie (as I’ve said in many interviews previous to this), but if a great way of doing that surfaces, I’m all for it. Two or one, whichever way fits the story best is fine by me, and everyone I’ve spoken with at Summit seems to feel the same way. We’re all excited to move forward on this, and we are slowly and surely getting there. I know people are anxious for news, and so sometimes gossip gets fabricated to stir things up, but there’s no basis to this particular story.

“ECLIPSE” WILL HAVE ACTION AND A FEW LOVE SCENES
As more and more interviews start coming out with the actors talking about “Eclipse”, it’s really starting to look like Summit is going to pull in more of the testosterone demographic this time around. Reports are coming out that “Eclipse” will focus more on the fight scenes and less on the love scenes.
Ashley Greene was quoted in an interview saying, “I think it’ll be different. I think it’s going to be a battle between the studio and the director, and it’s going to be a hard balance, ‘cause I think he’s… a little more focused on it being real and maybe it being gorier and a little dark and kind of dramatic.”
TWILIGHT: MODERN WARFARE 2 TRAILER

It’s nice to know that Stephenie isn’t trying to pull rank on the folks at Summit and that she can be so gracious. Honestly, if I were in her shoes, I’d have a hard time not having a big ol’ opinion about things!
I’m so excited that the cover art for the DVD has been updated – the movie is that much closer to release! I’m ready to start comparison shopping to get the most bang for my buck (and a digital download to take the movie with me on my iPod!).
I’m really torn on hearing that “Eclipse” will be more guy-friendly with the action scenes. While I’m really ready to see the Cullens and the Quileutes kick some newborn a**, I also want to see some ooey-gooey lovebird stuff between Edward and Bella. Granted, there really isn’t a whole lot in the book. But…what is in the book is definitely good stuff even if it is PG-13.
