Melissa Rosenberg has cleared up some rumors for all of us via her Facebook Page. Apparently there WILL indeed be a bloody birth scene, and even sex scenes, in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn film.
Hi y’all! Not sure where some of you got the impression I intended to leave birth scene out of Breaking Dawn, but it’s inaccurate. Of course the birth scene will be in there! And the sex scenes! And the feathers! And the blood! Perhaps you misinterpreted what I said about not needing to see BUCKETS of blood in order to convey the terror of the birth scene. But rest easy all! xoxo Mel
What does this mean for it’s MPAA rating? I don’t know. I can’t imagine a bloody, sexy, movie being rated anything less than R, but who knows maybe they can work some Hollywood magic and pull a PG 13. Regardless I’ll be seeing it, and can’t wait!
[EDIT] Don’t fear young fans, Producer Wyck Godfrey said in an interview, “I feel like the audience of the books and the movies, many of them are under 18; my ten-year-old son goes to these movies, I can’t make an R-rated conclusion to the franchise.” [/EDIT]
