As I've already written, it will be really hard to make Breaking Dawn into a movie. It's a big, super-long horndog-fest with a bloody and gruesome birth, a lot of time with the wolves, a huge cast of supporting roles, and perhaps most importantly -- a child who ages in the blink of an eye. Godfrey says: "It's a work in process. The issue [of whether there will be one or two movies] is not going to be resolved until we get the full treatment and see whether it's organic... It's a very long single movie if it does become a single movie." He went on to say that he doesn't think Chris Weitz will return, and that whoever helms the piece will have to be good with both actors and effects, the latter most due to the big challenge: Renesmee.
How do you deal with a kid who comes out of the womb as a well-developed, partly vampiric baby, who in two days is a toddler who can communicate, and who then grows into someone who can speak eloquently and walk around on their own? Godfrey says: "I keep having visions of Benjamin Button in my head. It's certainly going to be visual effects in some capacity along with an actor. I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being a full CG creation, but it also may be a human shot on a soundstage that then is used to shrink down. I don't know. We need a director. When we get a director, that director will need to come with a point of view of how they want to tackle it."
To see Taylor Lautner imprint on a little CG baby as they work around Edward and Bella's raunchy sex and his ceasarean-section-by-teeth delivery of Renesmee and an ending without a fight ... This might just be the funniest movie of 2011 or 2012.
