Robert Pattinson: Breaking Dawn Dream Director is Gus Van Sant

Robert Pattinson revealed to MTV over the weekend that he would love to work with acclaimed director Gus Van Sant on the fourth and final film in the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn.

The 23-year-old actor shared, “I probably shouldn’t say this but I’ve heard that we’re going to shoot it in Portland. I think Gus Van Sant would be great to do it. He shoots everything in Portland. He’s good at making it look beautiful.”

Robert added about the fourth film, saying, “It’s all about teenage love and obsessions. I think Gus Van Sant would be great.”

TELL JJJ: Who would you like to direct Breaking Dawn?

    What a confirmation! Between this and his fall timing spill… I’m so excited! First??

  • janeybell

    yeah right…they will never get someone as brilliant as Gus Van Sant to go anywhere near those crappy twilight movies. keep dreaming.

  • e


    I agree, he’s such a well respected director and I would hate to see him ruin his reputation in such an unnecessary way by in some way being connected to these “films” (I use that term very loosely)

  • SJS

    No! Don’t shoot here! DO NOT WANT! Though, Portland is big so as long as they’re no where near my area it’s fine. No extra teenies or traffic here please.

    Twilight was a highly successful film, grossing nearly $400 million worldwide. Why any director would NOT want to be apart of it, is beyond me. It’s not the best film in the world, but it’s a GOOD film. People please be more open minded for movies.

    @janeybell: @e: Amen! I thought I would find comments saying how “Yes Gus Van Sant would be perfect for Twilight” I bet you more than half of the Twilight fans haven’t seen any of his movies. He has standards so I highly doubt they will ever get him. At least I would hope not.

  • katie

    @robsten lovin: That’s opinion. I couldn’t stand the film. Just cos it’s popular, that doesn’t mean it’s good.

  • katie

    I couldn’t stand Breaking Dawn, so Gus Van Sant might actually be able to make it a bearable film. But like others have said, there’s no way.


    I saw this discussed on some Twilight Weekly show. They mentioned Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen), Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill), and Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd), J.J.Abrams (Star Trek movie), Guillermo Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hell Boy), and Chris Weitz (New Moon).

  • twilightfan0001

    i agree it is an opinion. i personally love twilight but some people I know can’t stand it. I cannot wait till New Moon but i respect peoples opinions and will not judge them. i have no clue who gus van sant is so i cannot say anything about him.

  • Minot

    Let’s see how he’s gonna visualize renesmee..

  • Karla

    I don’t know who that is but I can’t wait for the movie!! Breaking dawn was my fav book in the saga!

  • CS

    whatever, I WANT CHRIS WEITZ <3

  • jess

    well… I prefer Peter Jackson, Steven Spielberg, Catherine hardwicke, Tim burton and Quentin Tarantino!

  • Elisa long

    Clint Eastwood would make a perfect job as a director.

  • Liz

    Dude. As long as its not Catherine Hardwicke. She’s just effin horrendous.

  • Lela

    its funny how most people outside the twilight bubble think most of the fans are teen agers when 70 percent of the fans are actually women over the age of 20….. well those are just ignorent people looking for someone to complain to. as for directors so far from what I have seen david Slade is going to do a great job with eclipse and might be great for breaking dawn although they are completely different stories. and yes people need to be realistic and tell the truth and say the twilight saga films are not and I quote “dude like the gayest, faggy, stupid and retarded movies ever made… like its just stupid and all those 12 year old girls are stupid…” they are actually good films made a for an audience most action or dramas can not reach.

  • Tam

    Why not consider Neil Jordan- I think he would do a fabulous job with it!
