Eclipse melissarosenberg 1 Melissa Rosenberg Talks New Moon, Eclipse Proposal, and Breaking Dawn! must see melissa rosenberg has an exclusive interview with the Twilight Saga screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg.

In the interview Melissa talks about the proposal at the end of New Moon, the actual proposal in Eclipse, and briefly talks about  Breaking Dawn -

In your script for Twilight, you wrote in a number of direct quotes from Stephenie Meyer’s book. Can we expect the same in New Moon and Eclipse?

There are definitely some quotes sprinkled throughout. In some cases I’m paraphrasing, but I do try to include as many as I can. It’s very important. It brings the flavor of the book into the movie, so I definitely try to.

Fans want to know: Did the proposal scene make it into New Moon?

The proposal comes into the end of New Moon, and that is the first proposal. Absolutely in Eclipse, the proposal when they’re on the bed, yes — to me, that was a quintessential scene from the book. When Edward gets on his knees, with his mother’s ring, and she says yes — that was one of the most romantic scenes that Stephenie wrote in all four books.

Wyck Godfrey specifically said that if Breaking Dawn was made, it would absolutely be a PG-13 film, so it seems that staying true to that story’s specific events while making it suitable for younger audiences would be challenging.

Well yes, you have to know your audience. And… there’s no reason for it not to be. It could be PG-13.

The thought of Edward down on is knees asking Bella to marry him with is mothers ring = LMC crying. OME.

Melissa Rosenberg also talks about some of the added scenes in New Mooncheck it out here!

[Thanks, Spectra!]

    *joins in chanting* Down with MR!! SC for BD!!!

  • SC~3rd_Wife

    Not at all – that's what I was hoping for! I was turned on, actually had a hard time adding that part about the birth – I was distracted! I just wanted to illustrate that you can have a really hot Isle Esme scene, even sticking to the book, and keep a PG13 rating. People begging for R (who will never get it) are almost asking for porn – R is pretty hard core nowadays! Sure, I'd love to see Rob and Kristen fully nude with all the details, but really – that's never going to happen and that's not even how SM wrote it.

    And I agree – it would be pointless to leave out the feathers!

  • SC~3rd_Wife

    Thank you! *bowing to claps* Actually, I've had a backup plan to write the script, just in case they decided not to do BD for whatever reason – too costly, too long, too hard to film, contract BS. I live no where near LA and no real writing experience, but dammit – if there were no BD planned I was going to write a script that was so good they could not refuse to finish the Saga!

    I'm pretty sure they are going to make it now, so I haven't started writing – yet.

    Yes – call me SC (my initials). And you are Chel, I'm assuming? Nice to meet you!

  • Chel*Team NMS*

    Nice to meet you too SC, yup i'm Chel (its shorter) you should make a start on that script and submit it before MR gets her claws into it and if you need an extra pair of hands on set to feel Rob oops sorry i meant feed Rob his lines *blushes* i'd be more than up for that job ROTFLMAO!!!!

  • SC~3rd_Wife

    LMAO! I'll see what I can do! ;)

  • Vampgirl(Team Robsten forever)

    Question when is BreakingDawn Movie. Org going to be opened?

  • CJean>Leader of Team Leg Hitch

    LMAO at wild abandon!!!  I love it!  :)

  • CJean>Leader of Team Leg Hitch

    The leg hitch!! Don't even get me started! lol

  • CJean>Leader of Team Leg Hitch

    Feathers are the best!

  • OCullenD

    Uh, don't forget THE COTTAGE FLOOR SCENE… which is by far my favorite! Can you do a synopsis for how they would make that PG13 because your take on the other areas has been right on point! :)

  • NTJB-TeamS**DrivenPeople T-11

    Can't reply on nmm. tried logging out and refreshing. Will have to wait out I guess

  • R.P.Crackward~MarblePoleDancer

    Now I got blocked again! I'm letting my profanity flag fly on twitter.

  • R.P.Crackward~MarblePoleDancer

    Did you get my links?

  • NTJB-TeamS**DrivenPeople T-11

    Yeah. I was back and then I was blocked again.

    Why in the world would there be a shirt that says such a heinous thing like “It will be as if I never existed?” This is like perfect for people who hate Twilight if you think about it. I'm sure if any Twihard saw this shirt walking down the street, she'd have a hysterical fit and die on the spot LOL.

    Not a cool idea.

  • Elsewhere = The Popper

    lmao!.. u too.. we have been some bad ones running around here…

  • NTJB-TeamS**DrivenPeople T-11

    No friggin way about the back. The front and the back? So Twihards will walk past you on the street, go insane from the front then die from the back?

    Who made these shirts? Slowly, they're trying to kill us. :(

  • R.P.Crackward~MarblePoleDancer

    She would curl up in the fetal position and start sobbing uncontrollably.

  • R.P.Crackward~MarblePoleDancer

    That shirt is a bit crazy yes.

  • NTJB-TeamS**DrivenPeople T-11

    I was back for like a minute then it blocked me again.

    Strange thing is I was here earlier tonight and thought the block was some sort of maintenance thing where it was cleaning accounts and starting fresh or something. But now that it happened again, it's simply an annoyance.

    I got funny ish to say and I gotsta say it now LOL/

  • NTJB-TeamS**DrivenPeople T-11

    Why are you showing me this still? I'm still trying not to see some spoilers.

    No BTS scenes don't count <covers ears> They don't count! They don't count!! LOL

  • NTJB-TeamS**DrivenPeople T-11

  • R.P.Crackward~MarblePoleDancer

    Wha? It mentioned New Moon in EW. How is that a spoiler? It's their Holiday Movie Preview issue.

  • R.P.Crackward~MarblePoleDancer

    This nonsense is exactly why I headed over to twitter. This shizz is frustrating the hale out of me.

  • Elsewhere = The Popper

    AH! dont worry.. me's too..

  • NTJB-TeamS**DrivenPeople T-11

    Wha? You're kidding!!!!! OMG, this is crazy.

  • NTJB-TeamS**DrivenPeople T-11


    Does this mean cover?? Please cover!?!?? Please cover?!?!?!?

    Disclaimer: I'd like to apologize for that comment. I tend to lose some of the function in my brain when there's a possibility of an interview in one of these magazines.

  • R.P.Crackward~MarblePoleDancer

    If EW is smart, they will put NM on the cover. I hope it will be out by the end of this month. My glass is empty. I need a refill. :(

  • R.P.Crackward~MarblePoleDancer

    Ugh, hubby wants his turn at the computer. Seriously he's watching Tom & Jerry. Help me.

  • NTJB-TeamS**DrivenPeople T-11

    Haha. What else would they put on the cover? Zac Efron's movie? I think not, my friend.

  • NTJB-TeamS**DrivenPeople T-11

    Haha. Give it to him. We'll chat later.

  • R.P.Crackward~MarblePoleDancer

    They had better not, I will call them and protest. I don't want that buffoonery ruining it for me.

  • R.P.Crackward~MarblePoleDancer

    Ok, I bought VF tonight anyway. I will go cuddle with Rob now lol

  • NTJB-TeamS**DrivenPeople T-11

    LOL nice! Nighty night!

  • NTJB-TeamS**DrivenPeople T-11

    Hahaha. Zac the buffoon! Love it.

  • Bite_me_anyday_x

    I can forgive them for making Isle Esme a bit more PG13 and even the birth scene but not the Leg Hitch that has to be in it and as it was written by SM no tinkering with it MR because it is perfect!!!!
    Go leg hitch go leg hitch go go go leg hitch lol!!!!

  • R.P.Crackward~MarblePoleDancer

    That is utter BS. Down with disqust. I've been on twitter through this mediocrity.

  • Chel*Team NMS*

    awesome i'll be waiting LMAO!!!!

  • Alicepwns (Team Jackshley)

    COULD Breaking Dawn be PG-13? Of course. Is that what we want, and therefore should happen? Most definitely. Knowing your audience = priceless :)

  • CJean>Leader of Team Leg Hitch

    **waves TLH flag**   Whoo-hoo!!  :)

  • jessica303

    lol. me too! My girlfriend from another town is coming into LA to go see it and my husband gets to watch our kids and hers!!!

  • kirat

    TAYLOR LAUTNER is hotttt!!

  • starstruck21

    I couldn't wait to get to BD so I rushed through all of the books and I feel like I have missed something about the leg-hitch? Could someone please refresh my memory…

  • beckzilla

    I wish that Breaking dawn turned out to be a rated 'R' movie. The book was written as rated R and that is how they should keep it. I would be very disappointed if they didn't live up to the story line and decided to sensor it for children. Its not like kids haven't snuck into a rated R movie when they were 10 yrs old anyways. Everyone would enjoy the movie more if it was rated R.

  • criv874

    Thirty-five , and I'm one of the younger ones in our group. There were 20 of us at New Moon last night and we ranged from 29 to 61.

  • cgales

    When are they going to know if they are going to make Breaking Dawn i keep on hearing if why wouldnt they make the movie?

  • TeamEdwardTX

    I agree with all of the above—I want BD to be rated R but I don't think SM will allow it. I will settle for PG-13 over nothing at all. I will be DEVASTATED if we don't get BD on film!!
