I’ve got Breaking Dawn baby news for you!
Nope, none of the stars are expecting a new bundle of joy (at least not that we know of), but…
Jackson Rathbone tells me that the cast is very impressed by screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg‘s treatment of the much-talked-about birthing scene in B.D. “I think people are really, really excited and surprised about how tastefully it can be done,” he said at Spike TV’s Scream Awards.
Nikki Reed echoed Rathbone’s enthusiasm. “It’s intense,” she said. “It’s really intense.”
“I play a pivotal role in this, because this is what Rosalie has always wanted, you know what I mean?” she continued. “So, I’m working really hard. I’m with my acting coach every day, three hours a day…I really care about this and I want it to be good.”
Although they’ll be shooting both B.D. movies until next spring, Rathbone and Reed know that saying goodbye when they wrap won’t be easy. “I’ve had an amazing time working with the cast, and the fans have been incredible and so supportive of all us,” Rathbone said. “It’s going to be sad.”
“It’s not ending for a long time,” Reed said with a big smile. “But I’m going to be sad and here’s why: I’m working with really great people, people that I love. I’ve worked with some really talented directors. I’ve traveled all over the world with the series.”
Rob, Kristen & Taylor have arrived in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and have begun rehearsals.

Breaking Dawn vampire Nikki Reed is one of the few people who have checked out the script for the upcoming “Twilight Saga” installment. And as the starlet tells it, the big wigs behind the flick are trying hard to keep it that way.
When MTV News chatted with Reed on the Scream Awards red carpet Saturday, she said the script is guarded so carefully that even well-known industry professionals have to jump through hoops to get a peek.
“They’re definitely watermarked,” Reed admitted of the script’s security. “In fact, I work with an acting coach … and I wanted her to obviously have a copy so that we could work together and it was a huge process. She’s like a really well-respected coach.”
It appears that studio execs are keeping such a close eye on the script for good reason, as Reed said filmmakers have knocked a great screenplay.
“I think that they’ve really mastered the art of translating these books and transferring every single element almost verbatim, yet it’s obviously condensed because the book is endless,” Reed said. “I didn’t know how they were gonna conquer that challenge but they seem to have done it.”
The actress said she is ready to tackle the script head-on as production gets underway for the 2011 release, and is amped to work with the flick’s acclaimed director.
“Lots of fittings, no rehearsals yet [but] we head out there pretty soon. I’m really excited, I think Bill Condon is a genius,” she said. “I’ve only spoken to him on the phone but his love and devotion has sort of bled into [other parts of the production] because I’ve had wig fittings and wardrobe fittings here and you feel his presence even though I haven’t spent any time with him one on one.”
As Reed continues to ride out her role as Rosalie in the “Twilight” series, the actress reflected on the experience so far and said she’s satisfied with her contribution to the onscreen phenomenon.
“If it all ends tomorrow for me I’m happy because I feel like I’ve been a part of things that I’m really proud of [and] that I’m really grateful for,” she said.
