Kristen Stewart contemplates the Breaking Dawn split

In a new interview with the Associated Press, Kristen Stewart declares she knows exactly where to split Breaking Dawn for parts 1 and 2 of the movie:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The stars of “Twilight” are already looking forward to the final two installments in the vampire franchise.

Author Stephenie Meyer’s fourth and final “Twilight” book, “Breaking Dawn,” is splitting into two parts, and while scripts are still being written, star Kristen Stewart says she knows exactly where the fourth movie should end: With Bella having just given birth and Edward being forced to change her into a vampire to save her life.

“I feel like it’s so obvious where you break it up. It’s as soon as she turns,” Stewart told AP Television at a weekend publicity event for the third “Twilight” film, “Eclipse,” opening June 30. “Gosh, you open your eyes to this different world, right? That would be amazing.”

Stewart said she’s looking forward to her character’s development in the final two films, the first of which is set for release Nov. 18, 2011.

“It’s such a crazy concept though,” she said. “I’m going to be playing a wife and a mother and a vampire. I haven’t read the scripts … but I don’t see where else it could split other than when she turns. … I’m really curious as to what I’m going to be doing in the next six months.”

Co-star Taylor Lautner said he approved of Stewart’s idea, and praised the decision by film distributor Summit Entertainment to break up the last book.

“There’s so much to cover,” he said. “Because you’ve got to deal with the marriage, you’ve got to deal with the kid. I mean, maybe the split of the wolfpack, because that’s very important as well. But it’ll be interesting. Wherever it splits, whatever happens, I’m trusting (director) Bill Condon, because he’s
extremely talented.”

Condon, who directed “Dreamgirls” and “Kinsey,” will direct both films.

Stewart said she actually can’t wait for the franchise that made her a star — and a paparazzi target — to come to its conclusion.

“Gosh I mean come on, get on with it definitely,” she said. “The feeling that I get before and during working on a new movie is you want the story to be told so bad because you’re worried that it’s not going to be right and get out. I’m so concerned with getting every scene right. This story is constantly weighing on me because it’s not done. So I can’t wait to finish it.”

For the comments: What do you think? Where would you split Breaking Dawn?

  1. My guess is that they’re either going to split it at Bella’s transformation, or when she finds out she’s pregnant.

    • SHe finds out so early in the book, though. Splitting it there would mean a LOT of honeymoon filler. Hmmm…wouldn’t be such a bad idea, if the movie wasn’t PG-13… 😉

      • That’s true. Her transformation really is the logical place for the split to be. Maybe they’ll split it when Irina sees Renesmee? That’s the only other place I can think of to split the action semi-equally.

  2. I agree with Kristen, I think it should end when she is changed. I think it would be awesome to have the birth scene and Edward biting Bella and then have the closing shot be when Bella opens her eyes and they are bright red!

  3. i think it should be split where jacob’s book ends in the story…or maybe just a little bit before to keep the suspense. just after she has nessie and starts to slip away, but before her heart begins to beat again. beginning the second movie w/ her heart beat coming back and her burning would be a good place to pick back up…plus they always start the movies w/ steph’s opening line for bella which would fit in very well there.

  4. I think there gonna split it before bella’s transformation like the end of Jacobs pov like in the book.
    Or after Edward is biting her , if I had to chose I think itmshould end like Jacobs or like what laces says after she is changed and she opens her eyes , boom end .
    Cliff hanger , I can’t wait for breaking dawn 11/18/11 .
    Part 1
