Twilight Saga Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg Talks About Breaking Dawn

MTV News recently spoke with "Twilight" Saga screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg about the upcoming films for "Breaking Dawn". Since ti is now known that the latest installment will be broken up into two films, there are many questions about what will be included in each. The novel has a lot of sex as well as a gory birthing scene; probably not the best material for a PG-13 film.

Rosenberg says that the birthing scene will most likely be left out. "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," Rosenberg recently told the Los Angeles Times. "You know, you can do childbirth without seeing childbirth. ... It doesn't mean it's any less evocative of an experience."

Rosenberg added that she will be leaving a lot of those kinds of decisions up to director Bill Condon. "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!' "

"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" will be released on November 18, 2011 and "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" will be released sometime in 2012.
