Stephenie Meyer on Her New Role as a Movie Producer

Stephenie Meyer has been involved in the adaptation of her Twilight saga books to film from the very beginning. But on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2, she has taken on an even bigger role – producer.

“With the first part of the movie coming out, it doesn’t feel like an ending yet. It feels like we’re still going, and I’m not quite sure how it will be when we get to the end,” Meyer said.

Even though the Twilight saga films are based on Meyer’s work, Melissa Rosenberg actually wrote the screenplays for all five films. The two worked hand-in-hand to bring Meyer’s books to the big screen. Meyer even says that there were things Rosenberg added in the scripts that she wished she’d thought of for her books.

“To take on these beloved books was quite intimidating. My objective always was that if Stephenie liked it and if Stephenie believed it and approved it – that’s my job, because we’re all just visitors in her universe,” Rosenberg said.
