News Round-Up: February 12, 2010

I guess it's just apt that while we're taking a break from the Twilight stuff until Eclipse comes along earlier than usual in late June, we look ahead to Breaking Dawn. (Confusing wordplay, I know. Just go with it. Lol.)

So, I've decided to get my admin ass into gear to deliver this... uncertain but mostly happy (?) bit of news: Deadline Hollywood's exclusive news today is that the higher-ups in the Twibiz (I'm assuming this includes Mama Steph Meyer) have finally made the decision to make BD into TWO movies. Yep, count 'em. Two.
I have this from several sources, and it's definitive. Filming on the back-to-back movies would begin in mid-October, and Summit Entertainment is looking at "high-end" directors... Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg (who's written all the Twilight Saga films) is currently adapting Breaking Dawn. Eclipse, the 3rd movie, will be released on June 30th.
Honestly, not sure how to feel about this yet. Listeners of our podcast would know that the admins are leaning more towards one movie, not two, if at all, after considering all the technicalities that would naturally come up with filming the [good] craziness that is Breaking Dawn. (Also, despite my... our... love for the cast and the franchise, we realize people do have to "grow up" sometime.)

But oh well, more movies means we get to enjoy the fandom for a wee bit longer. :)

Well, that was fast. Summit sources told MTV news that Breaking Dawn being two movies is as of yet, undetermined.
"No decision has been made," a representative for Summit Entertainment told MTV News after the Deadline Hollywood story ran. "As we have said all along, we are continuing to work with Stephenie Meyer to bring 'Breaking Dawn' to the big screen."
I wonder if this is just another case of jumping the gun...

Backtracking to some other recent news bits...

For those of you, who, like me, have their crazy inner Robstens going loca over all the Remember Me releases (which, by the way, will be shown locally March 12! I've heard it's a good movie and everyone acts well, including our boy RPattz!) TWO stills of Eclipse's meadow scene have surfaced on the internet! And because, apparently, there are some issues with their being online, I'm only posting the released version. For the new ones, you can view them here.

We'll talk the looong list of New Moon DVDs next time, for now, Walmart's Ultimate Fan Edition is said to contain a sneak peek at Eclipse and will be the only version to do so according to the Twilight Lexicon. The DVD comes in 2 discs.

On something not-so-Twilight-related: if you're on Facebook, join Sam Bradley's The Manila Diaries group! The docu he and Zack Spiger filmed while here in the Philippines will be out online February 22! (2-22! Two seems to be the number of the day.)
