"Breaking Dawn - Part 1" has officially arrived in theaters, and you know what that means: Let the talk about "Part 2" begin!
MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with director Bill Condon and screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg to discuss what Twi-hards can expect from the conclusion of "The Twilight Saga."
Condon hinted that there will be a significant jump in tone between "Part 1" and "Part 2," a film he described as "epic." "['Breaking Dawn - Part 1'] is a very, very emotional, romantic story in the first half that gets dark and has elements of a horror movie in it," he said, possibly referring to the infamous birth scene.
In "Part 2," Condon said the action will focus on the larger world of vampires, which comes into the conflict with the birth of Bella and Edward's daughter, Renesmee. "The second one: It is truly the meeting of the vampires from around the world, so it has a really kind of global feeling," he said.
Rosenberg promised one thing: action. "The journey of the second film is survival, and it is kick butt. There's going to be some action going on there," she said.
Both Condon and Rosenberg were hesitant to comment on how the second film will end. Condon said he knows how it ends, but wouldn't offer much else, saying only, "It's an ending."
Rosenberg, on the other hand, was more giving, and said the answer lies in what Stephenie Meyer originally wrote. "It's in the book, and it felt right," she said.
