Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg is hard at work writing the scripts for the two-part Breaking Dawn installment of the Twilight series. One challenge she is facing is all the new characters.

She shared with MTV News, "It's extremely challenging to introduce those new characters because you already have quite a slew of characters to service. The Cullen family is large, the wolf family is large, you have three leads … finding room for all of them is a challenge. For me, it is about pulling forward the ones that are essential and really making sure they have a presence."

She wouldn't say exactly who appears and who doesn't, but that "all of them will be there in one shape or another." She also killed a rumor that said the Book of Jacob won't be included in the film. "I don't know where that idea came from, but that is not true," she confirmed. "We are going to see Jacob's perspective equally, so don't worry."

One other scene that Rosenberg is finding a challenge, is the birthing scene. It will be included in the movie, but how exactly it will be shown is still in the works. She has been writing it and rewriting it and shared, "I want it to be visceral, so that is what's most important. Do I want to see teeth in placenta? No," she said. "Someone else may. I don't actually want to see that, but to each his own."

Are you looking forward to Breaking Dawn Part 1 & 2? What characters do you hope make it into the movie?
