Producer Wyck Godfrey on the Birth Scene, MPAA Rating, & the Hacker SituationAug 9th, 2011 | By Stefanie | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News
HollywoodNews.com snagged a quick interview with Wyck Godfrey recently during his promotion for an upcoming project at the Television Critics Association presentations. They cover the main hot button topics that have been swirling around the fandom lately:
Readers know that Bella’s birth scene will be difficult to show on screen, because of the graphic descriptions of vampire labor. Godfrey said that director Bill Condon has a solid cut of the scene that should land a PG-13 from the MPAA.
“I have seen numerous cuts,” Godfrey said. “I think that process is taking place right now. We don’t have any word yet on the rating but I think we’re going to be okay. We’re releasing it PG-13 and it’s incredibly powerful already. It definitely captures what the book captures.”
Breaking Dawn has been split into two parts in order to fit as much of the book as possible into the movies. Part one should not run any longer than Twilight, New Moon or Eclipse though.
“We’re very close to locking picture on part one,” Godfrey added. “It’s about what the other three are, about two hours. I haven’t seen an assembly for Part 2, so we’ll start to get into it in December.”
