The producer of the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Wyck Godfrey, recently spoke with USA Today to talk about the final installments in the series.
On where the story will be split in half:
‘”We basically want to take the audience through the emotional part of Bella’s journey as she becomes a vampire. The first part will cover the wedding, the honeymoon and the birth.’ The film ends just before she embarks on her supernatural transformation.”
On how they plan to handled Bella and Jacob’s perspectives in the movie:
“The story will break from her and follow Jacob throughout the course of the movie as he struggles with his own dilemma. There is a sense that as Bella and the Cullens (Edward’s makeshift vampire clan) deal with her pregnancy, the world is still turning outside with Jacob.”
On the birth scene:
With Twilight‘s core of under-18 fans, “it would be a crime against our audience to go R-rated.” However, “this is based on a much more mature book. We need to progress and be more sophisticated.”
A compromise: Having the bloody, bone-crushing delivery be seen only through Bella’s eyes. “She is looking through the haze, experiencing pain and everything rushing around her. We only see what she sees.”

Honestly, it was not hard to guess where the split between the two movies would be, so there really is no surprise there. However, I still don’t understand why they are splitting the final book into two movies. In my opinion they really do not need two.
