I'm pretty sure it was Paramount Pictures' MTV Films, and if they had made it Bella would be a track star who was had a conversation with James in the diner before she even met Edward. Oh, and the FBI would be involved... and jet-skis!

Uhhh, no you would not. Like Who_Needs_Fangs stated MTV wanted to make SM's book into some kind of spy thing with night vision goggles and Bella a track star. Now, you tell me where Twilight is in that interpretation.
They probably would have added a huge sex scene and big tatas just to draw in the brainless MTV crowd.

SM put the skids on that, raised hell and MTV lost all of it. I say GOOD!!!

Has Dakota Fanning been officially casted as Jane? I have nothing against Dakota, but she's realy famous. I mean that's money they could be spending on much needed special effects, and they're spending it on her...

I have no idea. I still think Jodelle Ferland(?) would be great. I think she is the girl on DumBumm's banner.

Haha thanks.

I just hope that the bigger budget and the new director will make a good impact on how NM will turn out.

I think they would've invested a lot more than Summit did. SM didn't have any say, once she sold the rights, no one has to listen to her anymore. Thankfully Summit gave her some say.

I think that it was Catherine who let SM put her say in, because when Catherine was going to film NM, she said that SM told her of some actors she would like to see as The Volturi, and Catherine said she wants to meet those people.
Look at it now, it seems like she's getting no say for NM.
I think that's because of Chris, well most probably... :evil: :evil:
That's the way i see it.

^^^ I'm not sure about that, on SM's website she said how she was a big part of the decision to keep Taylor as Jacob.
So she seems pretty involved to me.

And I couldn't agree more with what some of you already said: MTV would have absolutely butchered the Twilight movie. The thought of night vision goggles, CIA, and Bella the track star totally make me cringe. Yuck.

I'm sure they'll let SM have say in all the movies because that's of the reasons she signed with Summitt, because all the other companies weren't letting her be involved and were just screwing the books over.

Does anyone know if SM has any offcial involvement in the creative process of the books becoming movies, like JK Rowling did with HP? I think JKR (my HP memories are fuzzy since my addiction to Twilight took hold :lol: ) was an official consultant on the movies- i.e.to make sure certain characters were written a certain way. I just wonder about SM's role....
