‘Breaking Dawn’ Will Most Likely Include Birth Scene

Celebuzz / July 13, 2010

Fear not, Twi-hards; when Breaking Dawn hits the big screen, it will probably include the most infamous scene from the book it was based on.

Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg caused ripples of anxiety throughout Twi-hard nation recently, when she suggested that she might leave Breaking Dawn’s notoriously gory birth out of the script. Luckily, Rosenberg has now clarified her stance on the matter, stating that she believes the birth scene should be included, although perhaps in not such a graphic manner:

“The childbirth… should be on screen. I think perhaps what I was referring to was, would we actually see Edward’s teeth through the placenta? I don’t think so. I don’t think we need to see that, and if someone needs to see that, I think they should take a look at that [laughs]. I believe it will be implied, but I don’t think we’ll see teeth in the placenta.”

Well, there goes the crucial teeth-in-the-placenta moviegoer demographic. But something tells us that Breaking Dawn will do just fine at the box office with or without them.

Are you relieved at Rosenberg’s clarification, or do you wish they’d go full gore with the birth scene? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
