Marcus of Volturi talks Breaking Dawn

Earlier this week, Twilight Lexicon's interview with The Twilight Saga: New Moon star Christopher Heyerdahl was released, and he talked to them about his appreciation for being a part of the Twilight film series' Volturi guard.

Today, though, the second portion of the interview has been released - only furthering our grip on his understanding of the series and his character - and he's had a little to say about The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

"When is [Marcus] going to speak up?" Heyerdahl says, "When is it necessary to speak up and say, 'Guys, you’re going too far. You’re wrong.' That’s the fun of when he speaks in New Moon and perhaps when he speaks in Breaking Dawn those will be the reasons why. He’s always just sanding off the hard edges of his eager compatriots that are sometimes…"

Of course, what Heyerdahl is referring to is the boredom that his character exhibits throughout the whole series . . . that is, until Breaking Dawn.

[*Warning: This portion of the post contains spoilers about Breaking Dawn.*]

At the end of Breaking Dawn, the Volturi has a decision to make: do the Cullens and Renesmee get to go on with their happy existences, or are they a threat to the vampire world at large (thusly needing to be eradicated)?

Of course, Marcus - one of the three votes on the matter - has to step in and side with the Cullens on the issue. So, clearly Christopher Heyerdahl is already readying his mind for what his character portrayal will entail with Breaking Dawn (which, of course - standard caveat - is an as-yet-unofficial film). Pretty exciting, huh?

Kristen Stewart thoughts about Renesmee

There is a multitude of questions surrounding "Breaking Dawn," the potentially final installment of "The Twilight Saga," including who will direct the film, when it will begin production and whether or not it will be broken up into two films — but as it stands, the only true guarantee is that "Breaking Dawn" will exist on film some day.

At the Sundance Film Festival, MTV News spoke with Kristen Stewart to see if she could shed some much needed light on the highly anticipated movie, but it turns out that the on-screen Bella Swan is just as in the dark as the rest of the franchise's fans.

"I don't even know if it's going to be one [film] or two, or who is directing it, or when it's even going [to start]," she admitted. "I know that it's going to go, but not when yet."

The most important issue facing Kristen's character is the birth of Edward and Bella's baby daughter Renesmee. In Stephenie Meyer's novel, Renesmee's birth is so graphic that Bella nearly dies but is ultimately converted into a vampire and saved by Edward. While the scene is currently unwritten as far as the "Breaking Dawn" script goes, Kristen is eager to learn how it will translate from book to film.

"I haven't seen a script, but I'm not alone in really, really wondering how they're going to handle that," she said.

As important as the birth scene itself is the baby that is born. Will Renesmee be played by an actual baby or will she be given the CGI treatment? It's a tricky question that Kristen doesn't have an easy answer for, but one thing is certain — Renesmee has to be adorable.

"Little Renesmee, she's got to be cute," said the actress. "She can't just be this scary superhuman teeth baby!

Peter Facinelli hopes for a PG-13 Breaking Dawn

Well to those who have read the book for Breaking Dawn the fourth of the Twilight Saga were finally Edward and Bella are on a honeymoon and having a very intimate time together as a married couple. With some feathers and bruises covering Bella the next morning from the strength of Edward. Also the cesarean scene where it seems to bloody as we know. We could imagine how rough would it be to film it out.

Peter Facinelli the patriach Dr. Carisle Cullen recently talks to Hollywood Life regarding the production of Breaking Dawn as he is a 37 year old father to a 12 year old daughter who is also a big twi-hard fan.

We’ve been waiting for soooo long to see Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart FINALLY make sweet, sweet love in the fourth and final Twilight film, Breaking Dawn, that it didn’t even occur to us that some people (re: parents) might not be so happy at the seductive content.

However, Peter Facinelli—who plays hot vampire patriarch Carlisle Cullen—has made us see the error of our ways.

“I have a 12-year-old daughter [Luca Bella, whose mom is Jennie Garth]. She’s a fan and I’d want her not to feel left out or awkward,” Peter, 37, explained to exclusively Jan. 16 at Lionsgate’s pre-Golden Globes party.

“Hopefully it’s a PG-13 type of situation,” he added. “I’m sure the producers and directors know what they want—and especially what they are doing—but I’m sure they don’t want to alienate fans.

Lainey Exclusive Breaking Dawn Rumors

Lainey Gossip was able to have an exclusive update regarding the filming of Breaking Dawn the 4th of the Twilight Saga. More likely in her exclusive report she stated the Vancouver location update where rumors are saying that the Breaking Dawn will be filmed on that place as they may start this fall.

"Some non-romance related updates for you Twi-Hards, this has to do with shooting location in response to the daily flurry of emails I receive for production information related to the 4th and possibly 5th movie(s).

You’ll recall I was the first to report that due to provincial tax credit drama and competing incentives, Portland became a more viable location. Despite reports elsewhere, as of this weekend, no final decision has been made. Having said that, Vancouver remains Summit’s first choice even though the tax credit situation has yet to be sorted.

My sources tell me exclusively Summit representatives met with the BC government just before Christmas to see if a favourable arrangement could be worked out. That meeting concluded with NO commitments from government officials who explained that they were not prepared to look at any new tax structure until after the Olympics. Summit was hoping to make a decision sooner.

Further, many crew members who worked on Twilight New Moon and Eclipse are now working on the new Fox show Human Target (shot in Vancouver) which enjoyed a solid debut the other night. As of two days ago, those crew members have not been informed of any movement to go back to Twilight. Yet.

There’s been some buzz among certain local special effects firms that a contract is coming, anticipating a June start date. The timing is encouraging for those lobbying for a Twilight return. This would allow for 3 months of prep before principle photography in September. So it looks promising… but there are still many variables at play. Will keep you posted."

Eclipse Movie will be on theaters June 30 2010 and they could start filming for Breaking Dawn earlier than that and its making fans now real excited for the upcoming sequels

Stephenie Meyer response to Breaking Dawn's Issue

Stephenie Meyer responded to issues how will the Breaking Dawn movie will go. There has been issues that the movie basing on the book will be in 2 or even more film just to fit on the story. But Stephenie Meyer released at statement in her website in her response to this issue.

Just a quick note on the subject of the Breaking Dawn film: there is no drama over whether the book should be one movie or two. My personal feeling is that it would be very difficult to cram the whole story into one movie (as I've said in many interviews previous to this), but if a great way of doing that surfaces, I'm all for it. Two or one, whichever way fits the story best is fine by me, and everyone I've spoken with at Summit seems to feel the same way. We're all excited to move forward on this, and we are slowly and surely getting there. I know people are anxious for news, and so sometimes gossip gets fabricated to stir things up, but there's no basis to this particular story.

Breaking Dawn will begin shooting this fall

According to La Times in a recent interview with Twilight Saga producer Wyck Godfrey that Breaking Dawn is still a work in progress, but he admitted that they could start filming in Vancouver this fall. Breaking Dawn is the fourth of the Twilight Saga to be produced by Summit Entertainment and for the first 2 movies: Twilight and New Moon has been hitting theaters worldwide and considering the third film Eclipse Movie as one of the most anticipated Movie in 2010.

Wyck Godfrey, the producer of all the films in the "Twilight" saga, admits that the creative team still doesn't know how they'll handle the character in the "Breaking Dawn" movie, but said that the plan is absolutely for the production to go forward -- as either one or two installments -- with an eye toward beginning to shoot in Vancouver this fall. All three stars are signed for "Breaking Dawn," he said, meaning that Stewart and Pattinson will be dealing with the joys and woes of interspecies parenting and newly minted heartthrob Taylor Lautner will return as often-shirtless shape-shifter Jacob Black.

At the moment, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, who's penned all the "Twilight" movies, is working on the "Breaking Dawn" script(s). "It's a work in process," Godfrey said in an interview Friday. "The issue [of whether there will be one or two movies] is not going to be resolved until we get the full treatment and see whether it's organic. If it's not organic, I don't think it will be done, and if it is, it will be. It really has to do with how much level of detail from the books there is, with all of these new vampires that appear in 'Breaking Dawn,' the whole section about Jacob... It's a very long single movie if it does become a single movie."

Although there's been a great deal of online chatter about whether Chris Weitz, director of the second and most recent movie, "New Moon," would return to helm "Breaking Dawn," Godfrey downplayed that possibility, saying, "I think everyone would be happy and excited if he came back, but I don't think it's going to happen."

He and the other principals are formulating a list of potential directors, "but right now," Godfrey said, "we're just focused on the treatment and getting that right. At that point, we're going to see who's available and who's appropriate. It's such a complicated book because you have the emotions and the intensity of the love story -- so you need somebody who's just a wonderful director of actors -- and yet it's really complicated from an action and visual effects standpoint. They've got to have both tools in their kit."

A visual effects background might be particularly helpful when it comes to dealing with the character of Renesmee.

"I keep having visions of '[The Curious Case of] Benjamin Button' in my head," Godfrey said, referring to David Fincher's Oscar-nominated 2008 fantasy about a man who becomes physically younger as he ages. "It's certainly going to be visual effects in some capacity along with an actor. I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being a full CG creation, but it also may be a human shot on a soundstage that then is used to shrink down. I don't know. We need a director. When we get a director, that director will need to come with a point of view of how they want to tackle it."
