'Breaking Dawn' Birth Scene Will Be as 'Intense' as Book

'Breaking Dawn' Birth Scene Will Be as 'Intense' as Book-photo

The scene where Bella Swan gives birth to Renesmee is perhaps the most infamous scene in Breaking Dawn. And as production for the big-screen adaptation draws closer, it's also been one of the most hotly contested: Will it be gory enough? Too gory? In 3D? Will it even be included at all?

Luckily, with the clock ticking, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg and director Bill Condon appear to be reaching an accord on the matter: Yes, it will be "intense." But "intense" doesn't necessarily translate to "graphic."

Rosenberg tells E! Online that she's been meeting with Condon in Baton Rouge, Louisiana—where BD will be filming—to work on script rewrites and reveals,

"[W]e're working on it to be as intense as it is in the book...I don't think it's about the amount of blood you show. It's about the intensity of it. It's on their faces. It's all from Bella's point of view when you're seeing what's going. It should feel visceral. I think it's going to be pretty intense."

Given that Breaking Dawn begins lensing in November, Rosenberg and Condon better figure things out in a hurry.

Which would you prefer for Breaking Dawn's birthing scene: Graphic and gory, or somewhat tasteful and implied? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

    In the book it was described as there being blood everywhere, all over the walls, all over Jacob, Edward and Bella; EVERYWHERE. I mean, Edward gives Bella a C-section with his TEETH! For those reasons, the scene in the film should be bloody and gore-y. If it's not, I will be very disappointed. :| that is a lie blood was not every were it might ove been on edward bout not on jacob on is arm b/c the baby tuched him there was no blood on the walls that is a lie u need to read that part again b/c u gon it all wrong

    I think that they should be graphic that is one of the most important scenes in the book I really don't think that this movie should be pg13 either there is a lot of sex and gore in BD I hope that they go into detail on how edward puts his venom into her heart and bites and licks her all over to change her make the scene exactly like the book I hope that the last two movies are exactly like the book Twilight and New Moon were disappointments they left out so many good scenes so I hope that all the actors read the book and the director makes it just like the book it would please many fans

    It should be graphic and gory, otherwise the film will be BORING. Oh wait, the Twilight series already is. * Really, because by commenting your telling ALL US TWI-HARDS that you show some kind of interest in it, hmmmm, what do you think guys, are they interested?! * =}

    I like the movies. They are entertaining. I do know though, that people who hate the movies are hating it because they want to be apart of that "cool group" that doesnt like it. SO they make it a point to hate the movies. Hence, the twilight bashing. It is cool to not like it. So the nerds love the movies. I am glad to be apart of the nerd group.

    Whoa! first of all the birth scene is all through Jacob's point of view NOT bella's! if these screenwriters actually read the book, then maybe they'd make a descent movie . -_-

    I want it to be gory, and like the book. That means Bella has to look pretty creepy herself. REMEMBER- THE BABY IS DRAINING HER LIFE AWAY SLOWING. So she really needs to look like sh*t. BRING IT ON-CANT WAIT!!! APRIL

    Weeeeell, let's put it this way: whatever they do to make it "intense", it's not going to be "intense" enough. Again, this coming from a person who has never read the books or seen the movies, but has given birth to two kids :D

    * Oh and I hope they put the scene in where Jacob slams Rose into the frame of the door, he deserved it! I think Rob can pull off the "burning man" thing too. I'm super fukn excited to see how TAYLOR aka Jacob does (emotionally). And I loved the blond jokes, bahaha....."How do you drown a blond?", hmm. love those!* =}

    I still don't understand what the big freaking deal is...the sex scene and the birth scene are part of the plot of a WORK OF FICTION set in a FANTASY WORLD. The sex scene is implied in the book and should be a no brainer. The birth scene's intensity can be conveyed through script, cinematography and most importantly the faces of the actors. Everyone just needs to CHILL OUT. Ultimately, it's a movie based on a book, and I say again, FICTION people. Lives are not at stake over this and all this catfighting, "my opinion this", "your opinion that" is just ridiculous. People are going to say whatever they want...LET IT BE...freedom of speech, whether you agree or not, is still in affect.

    Your so mature that in one sentence you state the immaturity of bashing someone yet your entire spot here is nothing but bashing someone who's opinion does matter.....so if you choose to be negative about someone elses opinion please do so but dont be ignorant Agreed. Both are opinions, if someone says twilight sucks then its their opinion. Twilight fans are easily offended. You can't stop someone for saying their opinion. If you don't like it or if your offended, then deal with it. By the way, I hope Breaking Dawn is good, because I wasn't impressed with New Moon (except for Jacob, he made it hot!!).

BECAUSE I'M MATURE you say you're 18.. well i'm 19 and they way you act makes it feel more liek 12 and 23. now i'm all up for constructive criticism. i can say that the book could have been better written the movies made better etc etc. but you've gone too far. no one cares. these ppl are still making bank. you aren't. but you are helping them put dollars in they pocket by getting them hits (neg or pos doesn't mmatter) don't give it so much attention. go out and do something you enjoy rather vent on something you hate. we get it so sit down and STFU Your so mature that in one sentence you state the immaturity of bashing someone yet your entire spot here is nothing but bashing someone who's opinion does matter.....so if you choose to be negative about someone elses opinion please do so but dont be ignorant
