Twilight Author Talks About Movie's Influence on Breaking Dawn
Posted 07.25.08 by reelz
Twilight has pretty much already been declared a hit even though it doesn't release in theaters until December 12th. A sequel (New Moon) is already planned and when the fourth book, Breaking Dawn, hits book stores on August 2nd, it's pretty likely screenwriters will be getting to work shortly thereafter.
We asked series author Stephenie Meyer whether the casting of her creations on screen has had any influence on the her writing as she continues the adventures of her Twilight creations.
"Luckily I got a head start. I had finished Eclipse before Twilight ever came out in the stores," Meyer told us.
"With Breaking Dawn, I already knew exactly what I was going to write. I had the outline. I knew what I was doing. I wasn't influenced by fan reaction or by the movie."
Meyer pauses, then admits that it has started to pop into her head: "Although, I will admit, when I read it now, I'm picturing Rob [Pattinson] and Kristen [Stewart] doing the stuff." (Laughs)
