'Breaking Dawn' Still Not Set, Some Characters Will Be All CGI?

The Twilight Saga has been breezing through the books thus far, churning out films for its massive fanbase for three out of the four books, with the third (Eclipse) set to hit theaters on June 29, 2010. But what about the fourth and final book in Stephenie Meyer's franchise? So far the suits at Summit haven't decided what to do about that adaptation. There's been talk about turning the last book into two films, though according to a new interview with producer Wyck Godfrey, things are still completely up in the air…though chances are still good that production will begin in the fall.

'Breaking Dawn'

Godfrey tells The LA Times, "It's a work in process. The issue [of whether there will be one or two movies] is not going to be resolved until we get the full treatment and see whether it's organic... It's a very long single movie if it does become a single movie." So there will be a movie, but then who will direct? Godfrey says he doesn't think Chris Weitz will return, which means that unless David Slade decides to helm the last film, this franchise could very well go through four different directors; one for each film.
The other big problem right now – and this is a spoiler warning for those who didn't read the book – is what the Powers That Be will do about the character Renesmee, who goes from being a well-developed part-vampire baby to a grown toddler in no time at all. Says Godfrey, "I keep having visions of Benjamin Button in my head. It's certainly going to be visual effects in some capacity along with an actor. I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up being a full CG creation, but it also may be a human shot on a soundstage that then is used to shrink down. I don't know. We need a director. When we get a director, that director will need to come with a point of view of how they want to tackle it."
What do you think? Should Renesmee be this complete CGI creation like Gollum from The Lord of the Rings, or should a real person play the character? What would you like to see from the last and final chapter in The Twilight Saga?
