LOS ANGELES — No matter how many times they have read the last book in her supernaturally popular “Twilight Saga,” Stephenie Meyer expects even devoted “Twihard” fans will be shocked when they see the ending of the big-screen adaptation “Breaking Dawn — Part 2.”
After all, the movie's third act even took her by surprise when she saw the finished film, opening Friday in theaters.
“It does feel very surprising. I still, watching it, have that (moment) where I go, ‘Oh, oh, right. We did that, didn't we?' So definitely there's something new to see. But to me, it doesn't feel like it's going like hugely off the page at all,” said Meyer, sitting between producer Wyck Godfrey and screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg during a recent news conference.
Before they even knew that “Breaking Dawn” — the fourth and final book in the record-smashing “Twilight Saga” — would be split into two movies, Meyer, who also served as a producer on the two-part finale, and Rosenberg, who took all the “Twilight” novels from page to screen, sat down in a steakhouse to plot out a satisfying cinematic conclusion for the blockbuster franchise.
