omg i love rob so much. hes so polite and funny.
One of my favorite things when these books are made into movies is that point of view expands. The books are from Bella’s point of view, so unless she’s right there you only hear about things, or you have to surmise what happened in another location. In this movie the world opens up: we see Jake transform in front of Charlie, the acquisition of the witness vampires, and Irina in Volterra. Which of the expanded point of view scenes was your favorite to write?
Well certainly Jacob and Charlie. You picture that and you think, “well how did that happen?” Did Jacob just burst into fur, or did he probably take his clothes off first? And then if you’re Charlie, you’re like, “What’s going on boy, put your clothes on!” And when you know you have both of those actors (Billy Burke and Taylor Lautner) who are so great with comedy, you can really write to them, knowing their strengths.
I also liked writing the gathering of the vampires. Particularly them finding Garrett (Lee Pace). I spent a lot of time talking with Stephenie over this. She has very detailed backstories for all of them. Because you’re getting into meat-eaters now.
Exactly, you now have the T-Rexes of the vampires coming to Forks. The cuddly, vegetarian Triceratops Cullens aren’t the only ones.
Even Garrett, who is one of the good guys, is one, and that expands your range of what you can do with him. What is he like around people.
Who was the most fun of the new vampires to write dialogue for?
Definitely Garrett. Alistair too, he’s all gloom and doom, we’re all going to die.
That’s actually a very cool way he’s written in the film. I think on the pages of the novel he gets a little lost in that vast influx of vampires, and people just remember him as a moody guy who goes to the attic. They don’t have a firm sense of who he is. I felt when I watched the film that he was a bit of a foil to the optimistic outlook of the Cullens. He was the voice of reality. Did you feel that way in writing it?
That is suggested in the books too. He is sort of the naysayer. They’re all going, “It’s fine we’re going to win” and he’s going, “I’ve been around forever. I’ve seen a lot. It’s a load of crap. You are not going to win.”
I honestly wrote major scenes for all of the new vampires, and then it comes to decisions. Is the action of the storytelling slowing down or even stopping. You have to start picking, and you feel like you are killing your children. It came down to who is driving the story forward the most.
Was coming up with who had a more prominent role among the new vampires a collaborative choice with you Bill Condon and Stephenie Meyer?
It was totally collaborative. We started looking at what was the emotional arc of the story. What pieces do you need to structure that. And in doing this, pieces start to naturally fall out. Some people you have to have with a speaking role, and others it breaks your heart . You go through feeling, “I wrote this scene. I love this scene”. And then you know it’s just not going to make it. And even sometimes things are shot, but later on in editing they have to make decisions and things go. I know there were some things I really loved with the new covens that didn’t make the final cut.
Well, hope spring eternal on the DVD.
You’ve worked on all the films, and in doing so you’ve had four different directors. Some came from a writing background, others purely from a director’s view. Looking back, who were you the most collaborative with?
Definitely Catherine Hardwicke on the first film. We had very, very little time. We had 5 weeks and we knew the writers strike was coming and we were trying to beat the clock to get it done. I’d write something, show it to her, get her feedback, revise, it was intense! Unfortunately, then the writer’s strike happened and I had less ongoing collaboration with her than I would have liked.
The next two movies were written ( New Moon and Eclipse) before the directors came on. I think I had more collaboration with David Slade as rewrites started.
But in reality, thinking about it, the deepest collaboration I had was with Bill Condon. I had written the outlines for the two movies, but I had no actual script. So, he came in at that stage. He’s an academy award winning writer, and that kind of thing can go either way. You can have someone who is like, “I’m a writer, but I don’t know how to tell you what I want so I’m just going to do it myself” which is certainly legitimate. I think Chris Wietz is more in that vein, which was fantastic with things he did it was a great job. Then, on the other hand, you have the writer/director who knows exactly what he wants and how to articulate it. And when you have Bill Condon as an academy award winning writer he’s uniquely qualified to articulate it. So when we first sat down he said, “I don’t want to write this. I want you to write this”, and at that point I was so tired and I thought, “really, don’t you want a part of it”? He made me work for my money (laughs) , but it was collaborative. It was hours and hours of bouncing ideas off each other.
I’d write an action sequence and give it to him. He’d give it to the stunt coordinators for their feedback and get their notes and I’d revise. I actually went down to Louisiana with him before shooting to talk some more. It was one of the best collaborations in my career.

On November 1, 2012, Collider shared the transcript and video from Kristen Stewart’s and Robert Pattinson’s L.A. press junkets. Stewart shared some of her feelings behind the “Twilight Saga” as well as addressed why she felt the film had become a phenomenon. Additionally, she spoke of several objects she saved from the set as sentimental keepsakes. Though Stewart didn’t address her personal relationship with co-star Pattinson, she did confirm the reasoning behind the translucent Halloween masks the couple wore the night before. When asked about the saga’s success, Stewart pointed to the romantic nature of the film’s premise.
The Romance of “Breaking Dawn” and the “Twilight Saga”
It may come as no surprise that Stewart and Pattinson would fall in love while filming “Twilight.” If there were any story romantic enough to make a strong connection between the stars it is the “Twilight Saga.” Though Stewart and Pattinson are recovering from her summer fling with “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders, it appears their relationship is moving forward and in a positive direction. Though earlier reports had indicated Summit Entertainment was worried about the co-stars sharing a hotel room while promoting the final installment of the film “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2,” Stewart told MTV’s Josh Horowitz that she preferred the joint interviews rather than the singular, press junkets scheduled for the crew. Stewart appeared quite cozy with Pattinson and the two shared numerous laughs while appearing on Entertainment Tonight as well as on MTV.
Speaking during the press conference, Stewart described her belief as to why “Twilight” became as popular as it did.
“This is not a normal movie.” It felt like something that was so very much our own. That first dose of looking up and seeing that something that’s really affected you does the same things to other people is mind blowing. It’s the coolest thing about the job, actually. It’s really exciting. I’m incredibly overwhelmed, admittedly, but it is the greatest part of the job.”
Continuing, Stewart stated, “This thing is romantic. That’s what is attractive about it. It is so stirring. I think if anyone was going to try to be cool about it, it would be a shame.”
It’s possible that Stewart’s and Pattinson’s real-life, romance was helping their characters to become more believable. While Stephenie Meyer’s books were already a phenomenon, that wasn’t an instant guarantee the films would become as successful as they have.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have won the MTV Movie Award for best kiss the past four years in a row. It is a likely bet they will win during the next awards as well.
While it is easy to say that the two are excellent actors, therefore they exude the appearance of romantic love, it is also possible that the couple’s true feelings for each other helped form the characters we see on screen.
As for the objects Stewart saved from the saga, they were Bella’s rings. These include a moonstone ring given to the character by her mother, and the beautiful engagement ring given to her by Pattinson’s character Edward.
The entire “Twilight Saga” exudes romance and we are assured that “Breaking Dawn Part 2” will carry on the fires of love and not disappoint.
