"Twilight: Breaking Dawn" Screenwriter: No Sex or Childbirth Scenes in Movie

| by

Screenplay writer Melissa Rosenberg, who’s in charge of adapting the Twilight Saga sequel for the big screen, says she’s not sure she wants to include certain scenes in the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn screenplay. If she could choose, she’d completely delete sex scenes and childbirth scenes from the vampire drama.

Ms Rosenberg believes Breaking Dawn will be better without sex scenes or “gore and guts.” This way, the film will remain interesting to the fans, as well as escaping being R-rated.

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. You know, you can do childbirth without seeing childbirth… It doesn’t mean it’s any less evocative of an experience.” Melissa Rosenberg told the Los Angeles Times.


As a screenwriter, Melissa leaves director Bill Condon to decide whether some controversial scenes should or should not be included in the movie.

[I] make a few sort of general suggestions on the page and say, ‘Go! Go, Bill! Do it!’” the Twilight Saga screenwriter added.


If the childbirth scene is indeed excluded from the movie, Robert Pattinson will be sooo disappointed.

Do you want to see childbirth and sex scenes in Breaking Dawn?
