Chris Weitz Talks 'Breaking Dawn' to MTV
Chris Weitz has a bit of advice for "Breaking Dawn" director Bill Condon ("Dreamgirls").
Weitz, who led "New Moon" to more than $700 million in worldwide box-office receipts, is confident that Condon is the right man to step into the director's chair for "Breaking Dawn." "I think he's terribly talented," Weitz said. "I know him, he's a solid citizen, great guy, very smart. I think he's going to do an amazing job."
His one piece of advice? "Think carefully about babies clawing out of people's stomachs," Weitz said in reference to one scene in the book, going on to refer to an even more famous scene in 1979's "Alien." "[Director] Ridley Scott sort of did it."
Weitz added with a laugh, "Kristen Stewart giving live birth through the stomach in 3-D! I'm there. I'm paying."
And he'd be happy to pay for not just one film, but two. It has long been rumored that "Breaking Dawn" will be split into two flicks. That's a move Weitz endorses.
"The book is big enough that it would warrant it," he said.
