Breaking Dawn: Where should it split?

By Tracy Rosenfield

hollywoodnews.com: Now that Summit Entertainment has confirmed “Breaking Dawn” will be split into two films, the next question on everyone’s minds is “where will the first film leave off?” At 754 pages, there’s plenty of room to play around with the mid-point. As Kristen Stewart explained, it also leaves room to incorporate more of the book into the films. Each of the first three books has over twenty chapters. “Breaking Dawn” has 39 chapters, not including Jacob Black’s perspective, which has no assigned chapters and lasts from pages 145 to 360.

During the LA press junket this past weekend, Stewart herself was asked if she knew where or how the film would be divided – perhaps one film from Bella’s perspective and one from Jacob’s. Though Stewart said she has no idea where the films will be broken up, it’s doubtful the films will be broken up in that manner. It would throw the entire sequencing of events out of order. This is “Twilight”, not “Memento.”

What are your thoughts? Where do you think the first “Breaking Dawn” should end? If I had to guess, based on the physical division of the book, my money would be on a split right before Bella realizes the burning sensation of Edward’s venom – the chapter appropriately named “Burning”.

One other “burning” question: Do you think Bill Condon and Melissa Rosenberg will keep both films entirely in Bella’s perspective, or will Jacob’s side make it into the film?

(Author’s note: After writing this article, an interview with “The Twilight Saga” producer Wyck Godfrey was published where he alluded to “Breaking Dawn” being broken up right before Bella turns into a vampire, with her vampire life possibly being shown in 3-D. Though he and Rosenberg insist Stephanie Meyer and director Condon will make the final decision.)
