It’s a question that’s hovered over the Twilight franchise for months: How will the filmmakers handle Bella’s notoriously graphic childbirth scene in the movie version of Breaking Dawn?
Now, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg has weighed in – and she’s all for showing it on screen, though perhaps without some of the gorier details.
“The childbirth – all the scenes, I feel – should be on screen,” Rosenberg tells PopSugar. “Would we actually see Edward’s teeth through the placenta? I don’t think so. I don’t think we need to see that.”
She adds with a laugh: “If someone needs to see that, I think they should take a look at that.”
