After some grainy photos of what looked to be scenes from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (specifically of Bella and Edward in bed together, now since taken down) started circulating on the Internet, Summit Entertainment, author Stephenie Meyer, director Bill Condon, and producer Wyck Godfrey have released the following statement:

As some of you may know, pictures and screen grabs of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn as a work in progress have leaked on the internet. We are extremely proud of this film and also extremely heartbroken to see it out there at this stage.

The film and these images are not yet ready or in their proper context. They were illegally obtained and their early dissemination is deeply upsetting to the actors, the filmmakers and Summit who are working so hard to bring these movies to fruition to you in November 2011 and November 2012.

Please, for those who are posting, stop. And please, though the temptation is high, don’t view or pass on these images. Wait for the film in its beautiful, finished entirety to thrill you.


Stephenie Meyer, Bill Condon, Wyck Godfrey and Summit Entertainment
