Open Letter to Summit Entertainment on The Twilight Saga sign now

An open letter to Summit Entertainment.

"I will start by saying I really loved New Moon and there isn't going to be a list of 'buts' following that declaration.
However, there are some buts and they are major ones.
First of all, make Breaking Dawn but don't short-change the fans. Do it in two movies, the first ending at the conclusion of Jacob's book and give a whole movie to Bella's new life. Damn, but that girl has earned it by then. It's the only way to do such a huge story justice. And get Chris Weitz for it.
Secondly, no more actors should be changed as he cast is perfect. Do anything to keep them on board for Breaking Dawn. Anything.
Thirdly, please get rid of Melissa Rosenberg. I'm sure she's a wonderful human being but a person with absolutely no apptitude for the written word is a poor choice of screenplay writer. I'm strictly amateur but I have a book on writing screenplays and I'd give it a go for free and feel confident of writing something with one hundred per cent less cheesiness than Melissa Rosenberg could manage. All you need is work based on the actual books and not a middle-aged woman's misguided idea of what constitutes realistic dialogue and interaction. You don't actually have to drop her in the ocean with a weight tied round her ankles but I wouldn't save her if you did, even if I was holding a life belt.
Watching New Moon I couldn't help but wonder where the rest of the movie was. What there was really was great but the inclusion of the fans favourite parts of the book would have been appreciated. We would have loved another hour. 'New Moon, now fifty per cent bigger', is how we would have liked it. Edward and Bella's reunion was more like an unsatisfying quickie as opposed to the long, slow session we were longing for.
The last point is very important for women like me who suffer from palpitations, or possibly just for the sake of all women with a pulse and for some men too. Dear goodness, put a warning on the screen to inform us that Edward's going to look that good. Hospitals are busy enough with the swine flu epidemic without dealing with the fallout from seeing that level of male beauty on a huge screen.
I think that's the main points. Thanks."

    totally agree wif Margaret, plz change the scriptwriter.
  • 20 February 2015184. Naomi Briggs
    Totally agree. By the way Summit, think about it. Two movies = more money. And two movies= almost all the details fans need to see, which results in happiness and higher ticket sales, since we'll all probably go watch it about 5 times.

    I love what c/w has done with new moon,maybe he SHOULD be on board for b/d,but maybe we should wait to see d/s's take on eclipse first?anyway,i feel M/R is good but has not done the script justice,it's just too cheesy!
  • 20 August 2014179. Sasha Alexism
    i don't care who directs and write the script, as long as it's long, interesting, sticks to the books and they don't make a mess. Then i am a happy-go-lucky fan who'll watch each movie a couple of times!
