“Breaking Dawn” director Bill Condon “excited” to film Renesmee birth scene, but can he pull it off?

By Kim Palacios

HollywoodNews.com: In an NBC Los Angeles article quoting Bill Condon’s interview with PopcornBiz, the “Breaking Dawn” director is quoted as saying he’s “excited” to film the birth of Renesmee. The much-anticipated scene will involve not only the delivery of Edward and Bella’s half-breed child, it will also initiate Bella’s transition to becoming a vampire. Condon’s got his work cut out for him, not only for the visual depiction of Meyer’s gory scene, but also because Renesmee is the single character even the staunchest of Twi-hards love to hate.

Many fans griped that the half-human, half-vampire plot line was never credible to begin with. Renesmee’s “accidental” conception on Edward’s and Bella’s honeymoon was regarded by some as overly sensationalistic. Just as readers began warming to Renesmee, at the end of “Breaking Dawn”, Meyer threw in another plot twist for the Renesmee character: werewolf Jacob imprints on the child, and we’re meant to believe they will one day marry, forming a vampire/werewolf/human family.

Condon’s task, if fans are to enjoy the “Breaking Dawn” movie better than they enjoyed the book, will be to make Renesmee and every scene that surrounds her, elicit an emotional response. He must make a skeptical, biased audience come to like her. The fact that the screenplay need not match the book exactly is also an opportunity for the franchise to dodge some more bullets from fans. Melissa Rosenberg would also do well to add elements that garner favor for Renesmee, further justifying her right to be there.
