Twilight’s Original Script Had Some Wild Ideas For Kristen Stewart’s Bella, And One Of Them Involves A Shotgun

It’s no secret Twilight remains a weird, sparkly cult classic that not everyone may understand or enjoy, but to those who do, they can quote it like the back of their hand. Catherine Hardwicke’s 2008 film was the beginning of a phenomenon started in the YA book world with Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling series. But before Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson became the Bella and Edward of our dreams, Hollywood had a much different idea of how to adapt Twilight

On The Big Hit Show podcast, journalist Alex Pappademas took a deep dive into the making of Twilight and before it became the beloved and loathed hit, Mark Lord took a pass at the screenplay. His description of his Twilight is wild. In Lord’s words: 

They wanted to take the concept [of Romeo and Juliet with vampires] and build in a structure that was far more like a cinematic structure. And they wanted to just put in some more action to advance it more and give something more for the male audience. … They thought they were going to lose the male audience with too much of a romance.
