When Stephanie Meyer does an interview, what does she always get asked? Yep, if/when she’ll be getting around to finishing the infamous Midnight Sun. This incomplete manuscript, a telling of the events of the original Twilight novel from Edward’s perspective, was leaked a few years ago after very limited copies of it were entrusted to some key cast members in order to help them develop their characters. Speculation is that Rob had one of the copies and might be the guilty party, but although Stephanie knows where the leak came from, she’s not telling. And good for her! I’d much rather see fans obsess over the manuscript itself than the who/when/why of it (which could lead to bad press for the franchise), and realistically it could have been any number of people. Unfortunately for fans, Stephanie was so burned by the betrayal that she staunchly refused to finish it for at least a year after the incident, then when she finished Breaking Dawn, decided to move on to other projects. Note to Ms. Meyer: The Host ≠ Midnight Sun, not even close!!
Now, with Breaking Dawn nearing the end of filming, Stephanie recently told USA Today that she’s “hoping to do it someday because I know that’s what people want. No matter what book I put out from here to eternity they’ll want ‘Midnight Sun,” and that is the cold twi-hard truth! Stephanie also chatted about how fantastic Kristen Stewart looks in Bella’s vintage wedding dress, Kristen’s transformation as a vampire for the second half of the final film, and Rob’s affinity to his on-screen-nemesis character Jacob. She also revealed that the first half of the Breaking Dawn film will end as Bella opens her eyes for the first time as a vampire. To borrow from True Blood, waiting sucks!
We’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see the full USA Today report, but you can check out MTVs recent article here.
