While Twilight was a hit, and the buzz over New Moon is off the charts, controversy over the final two films in the Twilight Saga continues to grow.
By now, most fans are familiar with the shady decision to replace Rachelle Lefevre in Eclipse with Bryce Dallas Howard. Go read more about it and let your opinion be heard.
Now, an author is taking Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer to court for allegedly stealing ideas for Breaking Dawn.
As first reported by TMZ, Jordan Scott sent a cease and desist letter to the book's publisher, stating the fourth installment in the franchise contains a "striking and substantial similarity" to Scott's book, "The Nocturne."
Scott says her novel was published in 2006; though, strangely, we can't find it on Amazon.com.
She claims that numerous scenes in the books are eerily similar, such as (Breaking Dawn spoiler alert!)...
- Both contain a post-wedding sex scene;
- Both depict a scene about a woman who's sick because she's carrying a child with "evil powers;"
- Both focus on the death of the main character's wife.
In response, Meyer's rep wrote to TMZ: "The claim that 'Breaking Dawn' by Stephenie Meyer somehow infringes on an alleged book by someone named Jordan Scott is completely without merit. Neither Stephenie Meyer nor her representatives had any knowledge of this writer or her supposed book prior to this claim."
Man. It was a lot more fun when the only breaking news about these movies/books involved the latest Robert Pattinson pictures.
