press-conference-12

Okay so I wish now that I hadn’t used my pic of Rob doing a jig for my previous post since “song and dance” might be the way Breaking Dawn is heading.  For those on Twitter you will already know my fear that Bill Condon, the director of Dreamgirls, is in talks with Summit for the final chapter of the Twi Saga.  Variety is now reporting that the talks are close and that the film is being slated as two.  Double yikes – sorry as I said this afternoon – two films would be torture.  You all know this is my least favourite of the books – in fact sometimes I even wonder if Stephenie Meyer actually wrote it since the characters turned into people I have no idea who they are.  Seriously Edward was so whipped – sorry that’s not love – I just wanted to slap Bella repeatedly.  Oh sorry for our younger followers – I’m not condoning violence (but I really wanted to do it).   Anyway don’t want to debate everyone’s love for BD so I’ll just say thanks to our affie @TwiBritneyFan and also @aRedi for agreeing/laughing with me on Twitter this arvo and @aRedi  for the tip about Variety.  If you want to read the short article, just click on the link above.  Hmm perhaps that’s why Rob’s voice always rose an octave during the RM press junket whenever he was asked about BD – just saying.

    Shame they moved onto a song and dance man since the rumoured Sofia Copolla backed out – her involvement would stick, had they agreed to do just one movie NOT two. I see Condon has done some weird shiz which makes me think what the hell are they thinking? I’d hoped they’d be trying to get someone who could make the story a little more credible than the book, but alas, NOT. Hope they’re still keeping their options open and who knows, maybe Meyer and Summit see something we don’t.

    *imagines c-section Rocky Horror picture style*

    We have to laugh right – this film will be an abomination more so than Renesmee – oops – yeah I went there.

    Oh God @Vertigo – what if they decide to make it like “Tommy” – will have to go check out what other stuff he’s done. Back for more of my bitchin. In the words of Tyler “now I’m really pissed” but there’s no cheeky grin or shower in sight.

    At least we know Rob has talent as a singer and once again would steal the show.

    LOL, can’t get that song out of my head now Maria.

    I agree Maria I really disliked the book (sorry I know there are others who loved it) so I have 0 expectations for this movie, if they make it a cheesy musical at least I could get a laugh out of me for it.

    Go and see Maria and make sure you are wearing a chin holder, don’t want to catch any flies while you’re at it.
    He is however an Academy award winner.

    Oh okay if I ignore Chicago as further evidence of his musical background – he did do Gods & Monsters which earned him an Oscar. Hmmm the plot thickens.

    He won for best adapted screenplay :O Do you think they’re sacking Rosenberg for him? In that case I would welcome with open arms.

    @Vertigo – we wish but alas no. He’s definitely being considered as director. I just went onto IMDbPro – am truly scared that my sarcasm about the musical may come true. I seriously only said that because of Dreamgirls – did not really know about his history. Yike – maybe Beyonce will do a cameo as Laurent’s angry sister – yeah I know – the character doesn’t exist but that hasn’t stopped them from expanding roles for others who were in the book for a nanosecond *justlikerileyineclipse*

    A little insight to this Condon fellow – quote
    “Musicals are all about transitions. How you get in and out of numbers is more important than what happens inside of them”.

    I rest my case.

    Hahahahaha, you girls make me laugh. A musical BD, oh god just imagine & 2 movies *shudders* Poor poor Rob. Oh how I cannot wait for you to be free of Eddie & the Twi Saga & am pretty sure you Rob feel the same. I too am now imagining the scenes acted out Rocky Horror picture style *shudders again* Oh dear, the thought of it is just too much.

    You girls crack me up!!! Like you Lise Lou Im waiting for W4E and Bel Ami and really get the distinct impression maybe Im wrong but i Think Rob is over these movies and just wants them done and dusted.

  • Maria
    Posted on April 08, 2010

    Haha @Cindy don’t think you’re wrong – like I said in the post, I noticed Rob’s voice would often go up an octave whenever he was questioned about BD and really his facial expression when Pierce told him about how many Bond books there were in comparison to movies said it all. Oh and the “oh yeah but I don’t look 17 anymore” spoke volumes. Hahaha poor Rob – I just can’t see him having signed on if he had actually known what BD was going to be like. Really if you think about it – his fave of the series is New Moon – and again – that speaks volumes.
