The first ‘Twilight’ film almost had a major plot twist

It’s been 14 years since the first “Twilight” film hit theaters and director Catherine Hardwicke has a few secrets to share.

Hardwicke admitted on an episode of “The Big Hit Show” podcast that she despised the 2008 teen vampire romance’s original script.

Host Alex Pappademas read pieces of the screenplay’s first draft that had a few wild plot lines.

One scene showed star Kristen Stewart’s character Bella Swan firing a gun at a vampire. Another showed her “on jet skis being chased by the FBI.”

Screenwriter Mark Lord wrote the original script and told Pappademas that MTV Films, which was producing the flick at the time, that it needed to add more action to the story.

“They wanted it to take a concept and build in a structure that was far more like a cinematic structure,” Lord said. “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.”

Hardwicke, however, said she didn’t feel like the script was right for the big screen adaption of author Stephenie Meyer’s widely-popular young adult novels.

“And the original script literally had Bella on jet skis being chased by the FBI,” she said. “She was a star athlete. Nothing to do with the book.”

Meyer also hated the first draft and the movie rights were then given to Summit Entertainment. Writer Melissa Rosenberg replaced Lord and wrote all five movies in the franchise.

Stewart starred with Robert Pattinson in the series from 2008 until 2012. Stewart dated the “Batman” star from 2009 to 2013 and she recently opened up about their relationship in an interview with The New Yorker.

“It was so clear who worked,” the “Spencer” star said of her chemistry with Pattinson  — who played Edward Cullen. “I was literally just, like [swooning].”

She added, “And, whatever, we were young and stupid and, not to say that we made it so much better, but that’s what it needed, and that’s what anybody playing those parts needed to feel.”
