With a bloody birth scene, and numerous sex scenes it's kind of hard to imagine the final installment of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, not getting an R rating, but Summit insists that they will keep their usual PG-13 rating.

Having an R rating would make it difficult for many of the tween fans to be able to see it, as they wouldn't be able to go without an adult, but not having an R rating might upset the older fans who could've gone to see a true-to-the-book rated R film. Some big scenes will need to have some major changes to accommodate the needs for a PG-13 rating.

Richie Fay, distribution chief, says, "I don't see it ever becoming an R-rated movie. The middle road we have to travel is a mutual respect as to staying true to the book but not turning off your audience. It's always with the eye of making Stephenie Meyer happy and making the audience happy."

Is there hope for us older fans? Fay says, "I can't say for a fact, but I just don't see us getting into an R-rated area with any of the ';Twilight' titles."

Nothing is set in stone.

Screenwriter, Melissa Rosenberg, says, "There are some movies that wouldn't play at PG-13, like ';The Hangover,' but this is just not one of them for me. Again, if you're capturing character, emotion and emotional journey, you're OK."

I'm not too happy with leaving key scenes out of the story. What do you think? Would you prefer it to be PG-13 or R?
