The fourth and final book in the crazy popular series of Twilight vampire books has received a somewhat tepid reception from fans and the trailers for the movie, fan’s rock concert like reception at Comic Con notwithstanding, aren’t exactly blowing anyone’s Hot Topic miniskirt up. So Stephenie Meyer, author of the books and creator of the whole Twilight phenomenon might be jumping the gun a bit to start talking about making the last book, Breaking Dawn into a movie, but she’s talking anyway.

She thinks that should the franchise make it that far, the fourth book deserves to be made into more than one picture. She says it’s too long for one movie, and suggests, “The book is actually broken up into book one, book two and book three, and the end of book two is kind of the exact middle of the story… It really feels like the clearest place to stop the action, but I’m not a movie person, I don’t know. I just think it’s too long for one movie.”

So if you’re a Twilight fan, good news: If the first movie works we could be in for 6 or 7 of these movies, instead of just 1. If you’re not a Twilight fan, band news: we could be in for 5 or 6 of these movies, instead of just 1. But I doubt it. As much as I’d love for the rabidly devoted, Twilight faithful to have a movie franchise which is worth of their adoration, the trailers for the first one really don’t make it look like that’s going to happen. It’s Eragon all over again.
