Poll: Which vamps do you want to see in Breaking Dawn

In most series books, there are additional characters in each new book, but I don’t know if any book has ever given its readers as many new characters as Breaking Dawn.  There are just so many of them!  Given that it’s difficult for Hollywood to do everything a book calls for, we’re not sure if all the new characters will make it into the movie.  It would be nice if they did and that’s what we’re hoping for, but we also know that you have to lose something from book to movie.  (Lauren Mallory, for example.)

So we pose this question to you: Which Vampire characters would you most like to see in a movie version of Breaking Dawn?  Because there are so many of them, we’ve grouped them into their clans, if they have one.  If there is a specific character in a clan you think stands out from the others, let us know in the comments.


Producer Wyck Godfrey: So Where Are We With Breaking Dawn?

Bella and Edward

This is an article that you are going to want to read. It covers timing, the Renesmee problem, and shooting location.  What is notable is that this is the first time a shooting location has been mentioned directly by someone from Summit. Several websites had information up claiming the production would be back in Portland. One site was so sure of this information that they actually had initially listed Lana Veenker as the casting agent and later put out a put a press release detailing Portland information.

“When it was released in August 2008, fan reaction was intense and divided with some “Twi-hards” expressing confusion and dismay over a plot that involved *SPOILER ALERT* a recently graduated  19-year-old Bella giving birth to a half-human/half-vamp daughter named Renesmee, who grows much faster than the average mortal child and who possesses a unique way of communicating with those around her, clearly inherited from Dad’s side of the family.

Wyck Godfrey, the producer of all the films in the “Twilight” saga, admits that the creative team still doesn’t know how they’ll handle the character in the “Breaking Dawn” movie, but said that the plan is absolutely for the production to go forward — as either one or two installments — with an eye toward beginning to shoot in Vancouver this fall. All three stars are signed for “Breaking Dawn,” he said, meaning that Stewart and Pattinson will be dealing with the joys and woes of interspecies parenting and newly minted heartthrob Taylor Lautner will return as often-shirtless shape-shifter Jacob Black.”

Ryan Seacrest: Breaking Dawn Info Leak

You want to look at around the 3:00 minute mark. No confirmation of the exact source, but Seacrest tends not to run things if he can’t provide a credible source.

Though there has been no official confirmation of Breaking Dawn, the fact that it appeared as a tab on the official Twilight Saga movie website back in July has always indicated to us (in our opinion, we have no confirmation) that the movie would be made. To us the only questions have been: when, where, and how many.
