Robert Pattinson: I Don't Mind Changing 'Twilight' Quotes From The Books For The Movies! Do YOU Agree?

Wed, September 7, 2011 8:28pm EST by 6 Comments

In his new interview, Robert Pattinson says he’s not opposed to changing lines from the ‘Twilight’ books around for the film adaptations! Does that make you upset — or do you trust him as Edward to make good decisions?

Twi-hards might not be very happy with this news. In his recent interview with Premiere magazine, the movies’ leading man, Robert Pattinson, admitted he’s not opposed to changing things around from the books for the movies — especially when it comes to awkward lines. What if he changes your favorite part?

Apparently up until this point, Rob, 25, had been instructed to stay true to the books so as to not disappoint fans. However, director Bill Condon changed that for both parts of Breaking Dawn.

“In any other movie, when a line doesn’t work, we change it during filming so it flows better. But it wasn’t always possible with Twilight. If I was ever uncomfortable with a line, I was told ‘You have to say this. It’s in the book!’” the actor said, explaining, “Bill didn’t hesitate, ‘We’ll adjust, it’s my movie after all…’”

When the interviewer pointed out how upset this news will make Twilight fans, Rob was quick to respond.

“Too bad,” he said. “It just reminds me of something I saw not too long ago, when I stumbled into a picture of a girl who had the famous line ‘And the lion fell in love with the lamb’ tattooed on her. I looked at it twice and she had ‘And the lamb fell in love with the lion’ instead. Can you imagine that, having a movie line engraved on your skin and it’s not even the right one?”

Are YOU upset that some of your favorite one-liners might be switched around in the film versions of Breaking Dawn — Part I and Part II — or do you trust Rob, Bill and Kristen to make good movies? Sound off below!

Changes are unavoidable and necessary when doing book adaptation to a movie. I am fine with it as long as they are staying true to the characters and the story. They did lots of changes in previous 3 movies too. Some of those changes sucked, some were not so bad.

haha i agree that some qoute is really awkward. example: when Bella was pregnant at this time when Jacob saw her and call her Baby or something, that was really weird that she wasn’t belong with him anymore, but that calling baby or sweetie or i cant really remember but that was so weird!!!

No, you have to change the dialog. Screenplays and novels are completely different. The rules are not the same. Huge chunks are uninterrupted dialog are a big screenwriting no-no. Unless you are Quentin Tarantino. A few people can get away with breaking any rule, but as a rule, there are a reason why these rules exist. Major theatrical-release studio-produced films follow a very precise cookie-cutter formula, for a reason, because the formula works. And when this much money is being invested in upfront costs, it better work. It has to work. They are not taking any chances. A screenplay and a manuscript are never the same. They can’t be the same. Anyone with any experience realizes that it just doesn’t work like that. It’s not practical, and, therefore, not economical. In book, characters ramble. In movies, they have to say what they need to say, say it as quickly as they can, and use as few words as possible.

I really don’t think it matters what the lines are , as long as it tell the story better . Sometimes you gotta do what is right for the story , and i’ll be honest some of the lines in the book are sometimes corny or weird and in truth people would’nt say stuff like that . Also Bill Condon is a great storyteller as well as a great director it can only make the story better . Still a fan of the books and the movies so it’s not a big deal … Unfortunately some people will go nuts because of it … So let the craziness begin …LOL …
